A new opportunity for homebuyers over the age of 55 at Beechcroft’s Castle Gardens, Watlington

Beechcroft’s Castle Gardens in Watlington has proved extremely popular with homebuyers over the age of 55. Set in beautifully landscaped communal gardens, the collection of 41 elegant new homes is perfectly placed, adjacent to the grounds of historic Shirburn Castle, on the edge of the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Beauty and less than ½ mile from Watlington High Street.

The final properties – including a two-bedroom house and a two-bedroom apartment – are now on sale but homebuyers who have missed out are set to have a further opportunity to buy at Castle Gardens.

Beechcroft has been granted planning permission for a further 25 new homes at Castle Gardens. These will be created within four two-storey buildings set around a landscaped communal garden. Each apartment will provide a terrace, balcony or private garden and allocated parking. Built and finished to Beechcroft’s high standards, the new homes will be energy efficient and easy to maintain and will feature Beechcroft’s Healthihouse™ fixtures and fittings, designed to promote a healthy home environment. 

The on-site Estate Manager at Castle Gardens is on hand to handle the day-to-day management of the development, organising the cleaning and maintenance of the communal areas and gardening of the landscaped setting and private gardens – and to keep an eye on properties whilst owners are away.

Planning Approved At Castle Gardens

At Castle Gardens, Beechcroft home owners are able to enjoy a relaxed lifestyle, maintaining their privacy and independence but, as part of a community of like-minded neighbours, there’s the possibility of a whole new social life.

The residents’ pavilion at Castle Gardens is already a hub of social activity – a place where neighbours get together for coffee and events but there will be a new communal lounge created at the development as well as a luxurious guest suite that homeowners will be able to book for visiting family and friends.  Pets are welcome and several of the home owners enjoy walking their dogs around the landscaped gardens and beyond. The Estate Manager also organises shopping trips to Henley, Thame and Wallingford in the development’s shuttle bus.

For details of the forthcoming development which has an anticipated launch date of January 2025 or details on the final properties available in the first phase of development and priced from £560,000, please contact the Beechcroft sales team on 01491 743018.
