Bromford was rewarded by WhatHouse? Awards 2021 judges in the Best Retirement Development category...

Housing association Bromford, which is delivering new retirement homes in Oxfordshire, is celebrating winning a Bronze Award at this year’s WhatHouse? Awards for Best Retirement Development.

Park Gardens, situated off Bath Road near the centre of Banbury, was awarded the honour on Friday 19 November after the judges were impressed by its refreshingly new approach to design and lifestyle.

The 78-apartment development was recognised by a panel of expert judges for its wide range of facilities, including a café/bistro, wellbeing/beauty treatment rooms, hairdressing studio and activity room, that offer a relaxed and comfortable lifestyle for Park Gardens’ residents.

Bromford was also acknowledged for the successful integration of Park Gardens and its residents with the local community of Banbury, the provision of carefully designed outdoor space, and its commitment to the environment and biodiversity.

The annual WhatHouse? Awards are regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the housebuilding industry and aim to recognise exciting, dynamic and pioneering projects within the new build sector. Now in their 41st year, the Awards seek to shine a light on customer-focused housebuilders and housing associations across the country.

The awards ceremony was hosted by six-time Olympic champion Sir Chris Hoy and famous sports broadcaster Claire Balding in London.

Catherine Jarrett, director of sales and marketing at Bromford, said: “Winning this Award at the prestigious WhatHouse? Awards means a great deal to us. We couldn’t be prouder of the whole Bromford team for making it happen.

“It’s so rewarding to have the work we do investing in our residents and helping them thrive at Park Gardens recognised by some of our industries’ most prominent leaders. At Park Gardens, everything we do is about making the lives of our residents as stress-free as possible, so they can simply focus on making the most of their retirement.”

Just four two-bedroom apartments are remaining for sale at Park Gardens, priced from £162,750 to £283,000. The housing provider is offering an Assisted Move service, which enables house-hunters to sell their old homes easy and reduce the cost of selling it. For an extra helping hand, Bromford also works with Senior Moves to offer property seekers 10 hours free assistance with packing and unpacking.

Park Gardens is open by appointment only, 10.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Sunday. Find out more from Bromford.
