Leading retirement housing specialist, Beechcroft, was overwhelmed by the response to the sales launch of White Lion Place in Cobham. More than 50 groups of people attended the event and, by the end of the first day, two apartments, including the show home, had been snapped up by eager buyers.
Located on Portsmouth Road, in the heart of Cobham, White Lion Place is an exclusive collection of 30 newly-built and converted houses, apartments and duplexes, designed with retirement in mind.
The Grade II White Lion, once the first stop on the stagecoach route from London to Portsmouth, has long been one of Cobham’s landmark buildings. The elevations are mainly 18th century but parts of the building date back to the 16th century. Beechcroft’s careful restoration and conversion will result in a collection of six impressive period homes along with 24 newly built homes, set in a gated courtyard.
The first new homes to be released at White Lion Place are set within Barley House and Mackay House. Barley House comprises five two- and three-bedroom apartments and a four-bedroom duplex apartment whilst Mackay House includes three three-bedroom apartments and an elegant new three-bedroom house. Each new home provides the high quality fixtures and fittings that are a hallmark of all Beechcroft developments along with private parking. All of the homes also offer private terraces, roof terraces, balconies or Juliet balconies.
“At Beechcroft, we build homes for the over 55s that provide plenty of living space but fewer bedrooms than a ‘mainstream’ house of the same size,” comments Holly Foreman, Beechcroft’s Head of Sales. “White Lion Place is a perfect example of this – with spacious two, three and four-bedroom homes that are energy-efficient, easy to maintain and perfectly placed in the heart of Cobham. An Estate Manager will be on hand to deal with the day-to-day administration of the development and to keep an eye on properties whilst owners are away – making this an ideal retirement development.”
Prices for the apartment’s currently available range from £895,000 for a three-bedroom first floor apartment with a balcony to £1,000,000 for a four-bedroom duplex apartment with two Juliet balconies and a roof terrace. The three-bedroom, three-storey house with a study, terrace and balcony, is also priced at £1,000,000.
