Situated less than 2 miles from the centre of the UK's oldest recorded town, our Colchester development is within easy reach of both local amenities and a variety of attractions and places of interest. Not only does this development have a lot to offer right on its doorstep, but it also gives you the opportunity to own your home while receiving the support and care you need.

All 53 apartments, of which there are one and two beds available, have been designed with you in mind. Elegant design meets functionality in all apartments, with some featuring a balcony, ample storage, spacious living areas, and plugs and sockets placed at waist-height for your comfort and convenience. The Homeowners lounge and landscaped garden are tastefully designed spaces in which you can enjoy a tea or coffee and a chat with your fellow homeowners. Lancer House is a Retirement Living PLUS development, meaning flexible and individually tailored care packages are provided to meet all your personal support needs. The development is staffed 24 hours a day, led by the qualified Estates Manager, and a 24/7 call system provides emergency response. Camera entry ensures your safety and security, and accessibility is ensured throughout, with lifts to all floors. So you can relax knowing everything is taken care of. There's even an onsite and great-value bistro for when you don't feel like cooking.
