Retirement property specialist, Beechcroft Developments, is currently marketing its final property, Garden Cottage at Orchard Gardens, Storrington: a beautiful two-bedroom, detached cottage that is ready to move straight into.
Living here, means not only enjoying a private garden and parking, it also means having access to award-winning communal grounds.
Beechcroft Developments’ success in creating stunning landscaped gardens has just been recognised for the second successive year with a gold medal for the landscaping at Orchard Gardens, Storrington winning ‘The Best Landscape Design’ category of the What House? Property Awards 2015 – often dubbed the ‘Oscars’ of the Property Industry.
The cottage at Orchard Gardens offers plenty of living space including a hall, cloakroom, well-designed kitchen, dual aspect living room and a separate dining room which provides access onto the patio and rear garden beyond. On the upper floor are two bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes, along with a family bathroom
Retirement specialist, Beechcroft Developments, takes pride in creating outstanding properties for the over 55s which offer plenty of generously-proportioned living space but with fewer bedrooms than one would expect in a mainstream property of the same size. Beechcroft’s over 55s developments offer an estate management service for peace of mind – the estate manager is on hand to handle the day to day management of the development and to lend a hand when needed. Beechcroft is also committed to creating beautiful surroundings – particularly gardens as most downsizers regret leaving their gardens behind when they move – even if the garden was proving too much to manage.
At Orchard Gardens, the What House? judges reported that they were ‘impressed by the elegant simplicity of the scheme and how the new homes sit comfortably within the setting, complementing the vernacular architecture and merging seamlessly in the historic fabric of the neighbouring streetscape. The scheme has been designed to maximise views from the new homes of the church and South Downs, parking and garages are…tucked out of site, giving the impression that the development is car free.’
‘The judges’ report goes onto say that the materials combine golden gravel paths, timber fences and trellis and characteristic ironmongery. The planting design is soft and pleasing and yet vibrant and the skilful mix of interest, colour, texture, movement and scent is a delight. Overall, an eloquent scheme sensitively designed and executed within a historic setting and so well maintained.’
Garden Cottage is priced at £385,000 and comes with two parking spaces. For details of this and all Beechcroft developments, please contact Beechcroft on 01491 825522
