Our Award Winning Sister Company

Lifestyle Residences was founded by CIRC CEO John O'Neill in 2016. John has the unrivalled experience of 30 years in the construction and high-end property market, delivering cutting-edge construction projects, including some of London’s most iconic buildings. Using this experience he has now turned his attention towards transforming the way ordinary Londoners live.

Thus Lifestyle Residences was born.   

The concept behind Lifestyle Residences is to provide not just a beautifully designed home, but a lifestyle for every stage. Meeting the affordability for first time buyers and quality of downsizes while staying in central locations:

Lifestyle First Homes

Helping young and first time buyers realise their dream home. Providing homes under £600,000 allowing us to work in partnership with the government’s Help to Buy scheme.

Lifestyle Town Centre Homes

Creating Town Centre living and breathing life back into obsolete and listed buildings.

Lifestyle Independent Living

Creating private homes for those looking to downsize. Allowing a better overall living experience with the benefit of unlocking equity. Our unique approach provides the facilities and luxuries you expect, but tailored to a lifestyle for those over 55.




Lifestyle Residences recent success has been demonstrated in the London Borough of Richmond, where the conversion of Churcham House a former Victorian vicarage, latterly in use as serviced offices, obtained planning and was beautifully converted into 10 town centre homes.

Bespoke modern kitchens, high quality Bette & Crosswater bathrooms and bedrooms with built-in contemporary wardrobes, well-designed layouts and high quality finishes. Contemporary timber floor finishes, complementing the clean lines and subtle colours of kitchen areas to provide functional, restful, and beautiful living spaces.

The care that Lifestyle Residences took in the design and rejuvenation of this landmark building has been recognised by a rare plaque awarded by the Teddington Society.


This scheme was a proposed luxury senior living residence in a former convent, a grade II listed building situated on Ham Common. St Michael’s Convent had been the home of the Community of the Sisters of the Church and in their Ownership since 1949. It sits on 3.83 acres of mature grounds including an 18th Century walled garden, formal garden and orchard. Due to the changing requirements of the Sisters over the years, the existing facilities were no longer suitable.

We envisaged 58 high end apartments on the site with newly built blocks, containing contemporary living spaces for retired owners with a bespoke arrangement to their living requirements. A range of services would be offered as required allowing the residents to maintain as much independence as they like.

The Care

The development would provide round the clock care via a management company. Residents can receive as much or as little help as they require with the ability to adjust their level of care as they age and as necessary. A bracelet and pull chord system would be available for emergency situations.

The Home

The apartments would be modern and comfortable, well fitted and in keeping with regulations for care homes. Every apartment would include outdoor spaces.

The Facilities

Residents would be able to enjoy facilities such as a concierge service, cafe bar, lounge facilities for entertaining friends and family and playing cards. They would have access to a well being centre, featuring a spa, exercise equipment, physio treatment and a hair salon. For those who want to travel, pool cars would be on hand as well as a minibus and parking space for residence and guests.


The proposed redevelopment would retain and refurbish the existing Grade II listed building. The 1950s additions would be demolished and new 3 story accommodation blocks would be constructed along with the 8 residential units
