Beechcroft building in the best locations

Retirement property specialist, Beechcroft takes pride in the fact it builds elegant houses and apartments for the over 55s in the best locations.   Now, Beechcroft has the proof – a leading newspaper* has published lists of the best places to live in the UK – and several of them are home to Beechcroft developments

Of the 20 ‘Old Favourites’ offering a combination of culture, restaurants, pubs and good connections in a leafy setting, Cobham in Surrey, described as ‘magical’ by local resident, Hollywood actor, Antonio Banderas, achieved 7th place.   Cobham is in the top 10 because it offers acres of green space, protected by the Cobham Conservation and Heritage Trust, an excellent range of shops and places to eat out and a great location for commuters being inside the M25, just off the A3 and 22 miles by road from London.  The train to London Waterloo only takes 40 minutes and Heathrow airport is about 30 minutes’ drive, traffic permitting.

Beechcroft’s White Lion Place is located on Portsmouth Road in the heart of Cobham, close to the local shops and services.  This gated development comprises 30 new and converted houses, apartments and duplexes designed for the over 55s along with private parking.  Six of the new homes are the result of Beechcroft’s careful restoration and conversion of a Grade II listed building – The White Lion – that was once an important stop on the London-Portsmouth stagecoach route.  The 24 newly built homes, including a selection of two, three and four-bedroom apartments and duplexes, along with a three-bedroom house, are set in three buildings.   Each provides plenty of generously-proportioned living space & all have outside space in the form of private gardens, terraces, balconies, Juliette balconies or roof terraces.

Currently four homes are available at White Lion Place, including a three-bedroom first floor apartment at £910,000, a four-bedroom, first-floor duplex with two Juliette balconies and a stunning roof terrace at £1 million, a three-bedroom second floor apartment with balcony at £895,000 and a three-bedroom, three-storey house with a study, terrace and balcony for £1 million.

Further information on White Lion Place, Cobham can be found on the website at www.beechcroft.co.uk or by calling the sales team on 0800 111 4576 .  The sales office and show homes are open Tuesday to Saturday inclusive 10 am to 5 pm.
