Beechcroft taking pride in creating outstanding retirement homes in Burford

The launch of the new show home at Cotswold Gate in Burford on Friday 1st October will provide home buyers over the age of 55 an opportunity to view the apartment, as well as reveal the quality and style that is synonymous with the Beechcroft brand.

Whilst the launch of the new show home at Cotswold Gate in Burford on Friday 1st October will provide home buyers over the age of 55 with the opportunity of viewing the beautiful two-bedroom ground floor apartment with a sun room and two private terraces, it will also provide Beechcroft with an opportunity to reveal the quality and style that is synonymous with the Beechcroft brand.

Founded over 35 years ago, Beechcroft remains committed to creating retirement properties that the over 55s really want to live in. Elegant houses and luxurious apartments provide an abundance of living space, regardless of the number of bedrooms and, where possible, each home features a balcony, terrace, roof terrace, private garden – or a combination of these. With kitchens that soon become the envy of family and friends, bathrooms and en-suites fitted with vanity units and mirrors, fitted wardrobes to two bedrooms and flooring throughout, there’s no need for ‘extras.’ What’s more, all new Beechcroft homes are now built to Beechcroft Healthihouse™ standards with a whole range of features designed to ensure a healthy living environment, from hygienic, easy to clean fixtures and fittings to whole house ventilation systems.

Beechcroft’s careful attention to detail has been noted by property professionals and, over the years, the company has received many prestigious awards. The latest of these was ‘The Best Development in The Retirement Living Sector’ at the Evening Standard Homes & Property Awards. The judges described Orford Place in Richmond as ‘….a unique retirement development in a beautiful historic setting’ but, as Angela South, Sales and Marketing Director for Beechcroft, points out, Beechcroft always strives to create exceptional developments for the over 55s, each being unique in its own right.

“At Beechcroft, we always aim to ensure that our over 55s’ developments are perfectly placed, close to shops and services in some of the most attractive towns and villages in the southern counties. Cotswold Gate is located opposite the popular Burford Garden Company, less than a mile from Burford High Street with a regular shuttle bus service available for owners.”  

“Each of our developments is designed to suit the location. At Cotswold Gate, for example, we have used traditional designs and materials to ensure a ‘Cotswold’ feel. Private and communal gardens are planted in such a way that they mature swiftly – and both are maintained by the estate management service.”

“Each development also has its own Estate Manager to handle the administration, organise the cleaning and maintenance and to be on hand to offer help and advice – as well as keeping an eye on properties whilst owners are away.”

“What is especially satisfying for our team is to witness the sense of community that develops on each and every site. Our home owners tend to be like-minded people who value their independence and their privacy – but who appreciate the possibility of having a whole new social life on the doorstep. At Cotswold Gate, the residents’ lounge with an honesty bar will be a great place to meet and chat to neighbours and when friends and family come to stay, there’s a luxurious guest suite."

At Cotswold Gate, the stylish, energy-efficient new homes are arranged in three courtyard settings. Currently five two and three-bedroom apartments, each with a private terrace, balcony or garden, lift access and parking, are available priced from £430,000 along with a two-bedroom house with terrace and private garden priced at £575,000.
