A new luxury retirement village near Cirencester in the Cotswolds has been announced for development in the summer of 2019. Siddington Park, situated on a 12 acre site will include lots of excellent onsite amenities such as its own restaurant, wellness spa, pool, gym, concierge and integrated care services.
Siddington Park Retirement Village
Octopus Healthcare, part of Octopus Group, and a leading investor in healthcare facilities, Rangeford Holdings (Rangeford), have agreed plans on a new exclusive luxury retirement village fueled by the under supply of high quality retirement housing offering a ‘lifestyle’ to the over 60’s looking to downsize.
Construction of the first phase, which comprises over 116 units on 8.2 acres of the site, will commence in summer 2019 with completion scheduled for late 2021.
In addition, the adjacent 3.8 acre plot has outline planning consent for further units, which will be brought forward in phases following the completion of phase one.
The established partnership between Rangeford and Octopus Healthcare was forged with the development of Wadswick Green in Wiltshire.
Wadswick Green, Wiltshire
Wadswick Green is a retirement Village on a 25 acres site surrounded by scenic countryside, with footpaths and walks for walkers and dog walkers to enjoy the Wiltshire scenery. The developers designed the site around a central Pavilion with courtyards expanding into the lush countryside.
Designed for enjoyment and wellness
The property offers a healthy, active ‘lifestyle’ to residents by creating a gym with personal trainer, swimming pool, sauna and Jacuzzi.
A Spa and hair salon is available with an award winning onsite restaurant to host guests and family visitors, or just for an evening out, then onto the terrace for a night cap.
Above all Wadswick Green is about community and providing an environment that invites residents to connect with each other in a safe and friendly community space.
Mickel Hill, North Yorshire
Rangeford created a beautiful authentic retirement village feel when they designed Mickel Hill in North Yorkshire.
They designed a modern and spacious pretty village for the over 60’s in Pickering with various property choices, lots of activities and amenities and a place to encourage a community feel for people to form friendships and never feel alone.
They even have guest accommodation so friends and family can stay.
57% of Investors considering retirement housing
According to Octopus Healthcare’s recent Healthcare Infrastructure report, 57% of global institutional investors surveyed are considering investing in retirement housing, with the UK attracting the most demand for investment recognising the supply and demand imbalance in the current market.
Kevin Beirne, Director at Octopus Healthcare, commented:
“The retirement living sector is changing with a growing population of over 60s seeking high quality, modern premises and facilities that meet their active and social lifestyles.
“Siddington Park meets those needs and, in an idyllic setting, has been designed to complement the existing housing provision in this area for the affluent Cotswolds community. This is our third development in partnership with Rangeford and we look forward to working closely with them as we progress this project.”
This latest project follows the recent appointment of a new management team at Rangeford, which is focused on expanding its current portfolio to become the UK’s leading operators of retirement communities.
Howard Nankivell, Chief Executive Officer of Rangeford, added:
“The growth of our portfolio reflects the continuous demand for high-quality retirement properties. With our third project on the way, we continue to seek further development opportunities in the UK to deliver modern village living options for the over 60s. With that in mind we are keen to hear about land opportunities and extend our network of contractors.”
Investing in Retirement Lifestyle
It is good to see Investors and Health Care professionals investing in this type of retirement property development. Modern architecture with lifestyle amenities in beautiful countryside locations so residents feel entertained, healthy and safe.
Let’s hope more property investors, and indeed those looking for retirement homes, see the benefits of Retirement Villages and maintain these high standards of living.
