Over the last three decades, Beechcroft has received many accolades, both for its retirement developments and for Special Projects involving restoration and conversion of buildings of historical or architectural importance. The latest accolade – The Best Development in The Retirement Living Sector in the Evening Standard’s Home & Property Awards – combines the two.
Orford Place on Ham Common is an outstanding retirement development of 23 homes; the result of Beechcroft’s careful restoration and conversion of an impressive manor house on Ham Common along with the addition of new homes that complement the architectural style of the period properties. The development is set in three acres of mature, walled gardens with sweeping lawns, informal and formal planting, a kitchen garden, fruit trees and mature trees including a 300-year-old Black Mulberry. The Evening Standard judges described Orford Place as ‘….a unique retirement development in a beautiful historic setting.”
Angela South, Beechcroft’s Sales and Marketing Director, commented:
“We are delighted that the quality of Orford Place has been recognised in this way. Whilst all the homes at Orford Place have now been reserved or sold, we are currently working on a number of other developments that will provide a combination of period and contemporary new homes in superb, fully-maintained settings.”
“People were really surprised when we told them we were moving to London. They couldn’t believe why we’d leave the Isle of Arran– but Ham Common, with its ponds is a wonderful place. The grounds at Orford Place are equally beautiful with flowerbeds and an orchard – and this has been so important for our well-being. There are lovely walks on Ham Common; really it’s been a lifesaver. We would like to thank Beechcroft for developing this special site for us all to enjoy.”
