Quick link to retirement developments

Regents Green, Cheltenham: an exclusive collection of 21 elegant two and three-bedroom houses and apartments including both new and converted properties; each designed with retirement in mind. Beechcroft has restored and converted the Victorian buildings on the site of Cheltenham's historic Delancey Hospital to provide 9 homes with a wealth of period features and 12 new homes designed to complement the original buildings.
I wasn't actively looking to move - in fact I was very resistant to the idea. I really didn't want to go into an old people's place so when I visited a Beechcroft site it was the first retirement development I'd ever been to. I was really surprised. I just didn't know places like this existed. It's the perfect stepping stone if you're moving from a large house to something easier to maintain but
still offers plenty of space. The house I chose is of a good size - moving from my large house to something small would have been far too much. This is a beautiful home with high ceilings and a good heating system but it's also energy efficient - everything you'd want in a house.
