Luxury Apartments For Over-65s Launched In Kensington And Fulham

Posted 6 May 2021 by Keith Osborne

Riverstone has launched two luxury apartment developments for over-65s, situated in sought-after parts of the capital...

Specialist developer Riverstone has launched its first two prime London developments for over-65s, located in Kensington and Fulham.

With the aim of “reinventing later living”, they have been designed with a choice of lifestyle options and community in mind, with open-plan and well-appointed apartments, and a range of amenities and well-being spaces both indoors and outdoors which provide an opportunity for residents to live their way in a neighbourhood they love.

Riverstone Kensington will comprise a collection of 190 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, and Riverstone Fulham will have 161 one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.

Riverstone sees the family friendly amenities as an extension to the residents’ apartments, with a library, bar, restaurant, cinema, spa and club room on their doorsteps. Residents also automatically become members of The Riverstone Club, allowing them access to every Riverstone location, with its development programme expected to extend to at least ten locations across the capital.

Penny Hughes, chairman of Riverstone, said: “Riverstone excites me. We offer exceptional residential experiences and a place people can call home, offering safer living within a vibrant location and community so residents can live life their way.

“Over-65s relish living in Central London, in the neighbourhoods they know and love. Combine that with stylish apartments, all the exceptional amenities and hospitality services they require, and we believe we have created a compelling new ideal for people with years of enjoyable living ahead.”

The provision of bespoke care is an important consideration for residents, whether it is now or in the future. Riverstone has chosen to partner with The Good Care Group, a highly regarded home care provider with bespoke care packages which will be tailored to every individual as required.

Riverstone has also appointed leading geriatrician Dr Zoe Wyrko as its well-being director. Dr Zoe will ensure that the principles of living well through good nutrition, lifestyle choices, staying active and maintaining a sense of purpose are central to life at Riverstone.

Jason Leek, chief executive officer at Riverstone, said: “Riverstone will be a truly engaging and welcoming environment with our well-being team on hand to support residents as much or as little as they like.

“Drawing upon modern lifestyle medicine and mental health practices – all known to support longevity and well-being – we have built a bespoke and growing team of partners and experts to alter the perception of later living.”

Riverstone Kensington has been designed to evoke the grand townhouses and garden squares that give the district its elegant character. Many of the apartments and shared spaces enjoy views of the beautiful landscaped gardens. Riverstone Fulham, in a prime location on the north bank of the Thames, has a generous riverside terrace and gardens to make the most of its exceptional setting. It is ideal for a morning or evening stroll, is a short distance from the Hurlingham Club and the New King’s Road and several of the apartments look directly on to the river.

These apartments are delivered to a high specification and finish throughout. Sophisticated colour palettes and stone surfaces contrast rich walnut cabinets and brushed accents to create a contemporary and classic finish, while bespoke and handcrafted joinery and state-of-the-art and fully integrated appliances – from premium brands including Siemens and Villeroy & Boch – complete these apartments. Generously sized bathrooms come complete with separate wet rooms – ergonomically designed with slip resistant tiles and blended edges to prevent slips and trips – and are easily adapted to include discreet safety integrations and requirements.

A public restaurant and bar will also be part of both the Riverstone Kensington and Fulham developments welcoming the local community and neighbourhood, along with family and friends – with Fulham’s restaurant on the riverside.

Riverstone Kensington and Riverstone Fulham information suites, with welcoming spaces designed by Bowler James Brindley, are now open. At Riverstone Kensington, prices range from £1.115million to £3million. At Riverstone Fulham, prices range from £860,000 to £3million. Find out more at www.riverstoneliving.com.
