Penhurst Gardens, Chipping Norton - a multi award-winning retirement development

Following on from the success of Beechcroft's Penhurst Gardens development in Chipping Norton which was judged to be the Best Retirement Development in the National Housebuilder Awards 2017, the development is once again in the spotlight receiving Highly Commended in the Best New Development, Retirement Living category of the prestigious Evening Standard Homes & Property Awards 2018.

The judges described Penhurst Gardens as a 'beautiful development in a great countryside location' but set on New Street in the heart of Chipping Norton, it is also near all the shops and services in this pretty market town.

Designed for the over 55s and created on the site of the former Penhurst School, Penhurst Gardens comprises a collection of newly built houses and apartments and a selection of apartments and houses created by Beechcroft's careful restoration and conversion of a pair of Victorian villas which once formed part of the school. The new homes are set in landscaped grounds which are fully maintained, along with private gardens, by the estate management service.

The development has a communal lounge and owners at Penhurst Gardens benefit from Beechcroft's close working relationship with Porthaven Care Homes which enables owners at Penhurst Gardens to attend social events at the neighbouring care home and to select from a menu of additional services including hairdressing and hot daily meals.

Currently only two properties remain available at Penhurst Gardens including an attractive converted two-bedroom apartment in Buchanan House which comes with lift access, a security alarm and allocated parking. Curtains, carpets and light fittings are included as well as a superb specification with hand-made kitchen cabinets, a full range of top brand integrated kitchen appliances and vanity units and fitted mirrors in the bathroom.

The other apartment is newly-built and on the ground floor, offering two bedrooms, a sun room and en-suite master bedroom. Both the drawing room and the master bedroom open onto the terrace and there's a dining/hall for entertaining. This apartment also comes with allocated parking and a security alarm as well as carpets, curtains and light fittings - and high quality fixtures and fittings.
