Fresh phase of retirement new builds follows strong demand in Derbyshire

Posted 10 August 2016 by Keith Osborne

Buyers snapping up homes on the first phase have led the retirement specialist to unveil another 29 apartments for senior buyers searching around Derby...

Specialist developer Richmond Villages is responding to homebuyer demand at its Aston-on-Trent scheme by releasing a second phase before residents have moved into the first.

Furthermore, the company has arranged an event on Saturday 3 September to officially launch the next 29 apartments, with the Richmond Villages team at the marketing suite from 10.00am to 4.00pm to welcome visitors who want to find out more about the available properties, located on the south-eastern corner of Derby.

“Richmond Aston-on-Trent is going to be a very special place to live and will be unlike any other retirement development in the area,” says Alison Harding, the senior village advisor. “Our new residents are mostly downsizing from large four- or five-bedroom properties so want good living space but fewer bedrooms. 

“Our village apartments offer up to 1,600 sq ft of space with spacious living areas and one or two en suite bedrooms. The top-spec, fully fitted kitchens boast granite worktops, a Neff eye-level oven and hob, a Bosch dishwasher and fridge freezer, so very easy to settle in to from day one.”

Property prices for the next phase of apartments at Richmond Aston-on-Trent range from £299,000 to £595,000.

A host of communal facilities have also encouraged the off-plan sales to early-bird buyers, with a spring 2017 deadline scheduled for the completion of homes alongside a restaurant, private dining room, bar and café, residents’ lounge, library, activities room and a shop. Furthermore, there’s a luxury hotel feel to a host of other benefits on the site, including a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, gym, exercise studio, hair salon and beauty treatment rooms. 

In addition to these delightful lifestyle facilities and the independent living of owning their own home, there is a range of medical and domestic services on offer to residents who need some help, explains Harding.

“Once fully operational, we will have some of 150 people working here, including those in hospitality, housekeeping, reception and the 24-hour on-site care team. Our aim is to help enhance the lives of our residents, so the level of attention and care will be extremely high. Just as an example, we will have our own drivers and small fleet of vehicles providing regular trips for shopping runs, visits out to local places of interest, or for getting to local GP, dentist or hospital appointments.”

The surroundings of like-minded neighbours of a similar age range means that social activities are commonplace and diverse for those who want to take part, with an events team looking after trips and facilities needed, from bridge to theatre to sporting occasions.
