Independent living at its very best
It’s a new way of living!
As we get older the thought of making our lives as easy and as enjoyable as possible naturally comes to the forefront of our minds.
Remaining independent is hugely important and perhaps one of the biggest decisions to make at this stage in life is where to live. There are lots of options, from remaining in your current home to buying a smaller house or bungalow or opting for an apartment. You could also consider a retirement property.
In recent years the term ‘retirement property’ has evolved significantly. It relates to any type of property (apartment, duplex, bungalow, cottage, house) within an age exclusive development that offers communal spaces and an array of services, including concierge, beauty salons, gymnasiums and/or restaurants, all designed to enhance the lives of the residents.
Maintenance of the building and grounds comes included, offering complete peace of mind, and a dedicated manager is available daily to arrange activities, social events or to simply have a coffee and a chat.
These developments showcase independent living at its very best. Purchasers can continue to live their lives just as they wish, but if they require any assistance, help is always on hand, such as domestic support or home care.
Retirement developments very much and quite quickly become unique communities where residents mingle with each other, forming solid new friendships. It’s a new way of living!
Minerva Place is a stunning development situated in conservation area in a leafy village in Cheshire; Lymm. It is located close to the Bridgewater Canal, Lymm Golf Club and alongside the historic Trans Pennine Trail, offering ample activities for residents as well as picturesque views.
The development provides a selection of one and two bedroom apartments, each expertly designed to exacting standards where every last detail is carefully considered. Each apartment features a superb internal specification, including full integrated kitchens and shower rooms with low profile shower trays, plus superfast broadband, allocated parking and a mobility scooter store.
With a fantastic communal lounge on the ground floor, residents can use this space to meet for coffee and cake or a glass of wine.
And at the heart of the development is the lifestyle manager who is the first point of contact for residents and is tasked with helping with day-to-day queries and facilitating regular events and activities to increase social interaction.
Other Villafont retirement developments include Adel Gardens in Adel, Yorkshire. At this bespoke development, just one bungalow remains, once again surrounded by stunning countryside yet close to everyday amenities in Headingley, including shops, restaurants, cafes and Headingley Golf Club. With a welcoming hallway, open-plan kitchen, dining area and lounge, two bedrooms and a bathroom, as well as car parking and a private garden, residents are really enjoying living in a smaller home with a more manageable garden, yet can benefit from the development’s mature landscaped grounds and on-going maintenance.
With retirement synonymous with travelling, trying new things, starting new hobbies (ie: painting), volunteering, picking up sports such as hiking or bowling, spending time with the family and being social, the very essence of Villafont’s retirement developments is to allow residents the chance to live a charmed life doing everything they want to do in their later years, reassured that their home, health and wellbeing is cared for as and when needed.
You must be aged 55 or over to buy a retirement property.
Additional costs apply for the domestic support packages and home care services.
A non-refundable reservation fee is required.
