Elmbridge redevelopment completed
Retirement Villages Group (RVG) has completed the £4.5m regeneration of the Elmbridge Village site in Cranleigh, Surrey.
The recently opened apartments at Arun House comprise six one and fourteen two bedroom, high-spec apartments, including two penthouses. This, along with the completion of communal facilities, marks the completion of the Elmbridge Village redevelopment.
After taking just 15 months, the project was completed in July, in conjunction with Castleoak, specialist development and construction partners to the retirement living and care sector.
“This follows our recent work at both Elmbridge Manor and Charters Village,” said Castleoak managing director Doug Jones.
“Our specialist team understands the customer’s exacting requirements, and work collaboratively to deliver. Our purpose as a business is to create quality living space, and I believe we’ve achieved this again at Arun House.”
The initial phase of the build saw a new central clubhouse, Elmbridge Manor, constructed, housing a main hall, onsite restaurant, private dining room and kitchen, bar and lounge and a library, shop and surgery, along with the 19 new apartments.
Elmbridge Village now offers more than 190 apartments and 85 bungalows onsite. RVG group development director Will Crawford said demand had been high for the new homes and 25% of the apartments were sold off-plan.
“The redevelopment of the previous site, clubhouse and new properties at Arun House means that we are consistently ensuring that we are offering the latest in retirement living design and functionality, underpinning the lifestyle our residents enjoy,” said Mr Crawford.
RVG has also recently broken ground on its newest development Debden Grange in Newport, Essex and chose Castleoak again as its construction partner. This project is set to be completed by Spring 2020 while Roseland Parc in Tregony, Cornwall is welcoming new owners to its latest Walled Garden project.
Retirement Villages Group, who pioneered the concept of age-exclusive retirement villages in the UK 35 years ago, now has 16 sites in its portfolio.
