Given the sum I am inheriting, and the pension and Social Security I am eligible for, can I afford to buy a house for $950,000?

1. There really is only two numbers that matter in retirement.  What is coming in? What is going out? Whether or not you can afford this home is a function of analyzing expected flow in, and flow out. 

2. I would consider waiting longer to take your social security out.  62 is the earliest you can take it, with a substantial reduction in your payout for the rest of your life. When do you plan to stop working? Why take it at 62? 

3. Prior to buying this home, I would sit with a fee-only fiduciary advisor and have them work with you on constructing a financial plan. 

4. Questions to consider.  Why this home? Why now? Is this a good home for retirement? Are there lots of stairs in this home? Do we want to live in this home in retirement?  Where are we in the economic cycle, is this a good time to deploy cash into real estate?  What's the local real estate market like right now?  Is this a house or a home?
