Downsize without compromise in Shiplake

Each Beechcroft home at the new development in Shiplake will provide plenty of light-filled living space, designed according to Beechcroft’s principle of creating high-quality homes with an abundance of living space.

The fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality; kitchens include bespoke cabinets and a full range of top brand appliances, bathrooms include vanity units and mirrors, wardrobes are fitted in the main bedrooms and flooring, including carpeting, is included. Where possible, each new home will feature outside space – in the form of a terrace, balcony, private garden or a combination of these, along with allocated parking. The landscaped gardens will be a delight with a variety of plants to provide texture, colour and year-round interest. 

Discover a new beginning with Beechcroft

With 40 years’ experience in the creation of award-winning developments for the over 55s, Beechcroft selects sites in the most desirable villages and market towns in the southern counties.

Our beautifully crafted houses and apartments are stylish, energy-efficient, easily maintained and a delight to live in. Every home provides plenty of living space but fewer bedrooms than a family home and either a terrace, balcony or private garden.

Inspired by local architecture, each Beechcroft scheme is unique, complementing the local area. Rather than being a ‘finishing touch’, landscaping is integral to the development – carefully planned and lovingly planted.

An Estate Manager is responsible for maintaining the development, being on hand to offer help and advice and keeping an eye on properties whilst owners are away – giving you peace of mind when travelling at home or abroad.

Behind the name: Manor Gardens

When choosing a name for a new development, the Beechcroft team looks at the history of the site, the former use or the geography. 

Manor Gardens, Beechcroft’s new development of two, three and five-bedroom homes in the riverside village of Shiplake, has been created on the site of the former Wyevale Garden Centre – and, given the site’s history, it seemed natural to retain the reference to gardens. 

The new development’s roads have been officially named ‘Crispin Gardens’ and ‘Walter Close’ after Miles Crispin, also known as Milo of Wallingford, who held Harpsden in the Anglo-Saxon period and the ownership of Harpsden/Bolney, in 1102 being in the hands of Walter Giffard, the 1st Earl of Buckingham. Both Miles Crispin and Walter Gifford were lords of the manor, and this area remained manorial until 19th century resulting in the name, Manor Gardens.
