Housebuilder Banner Homes has launched Glebelands, a development exclusively for the over 55s in the heart of Wokingham, Berkshire, with the opening of a dedicated marketing suite on Bush Walk in Wokingham town centre.
The residential property developer reports that it has already registered well in excess of 200 people who have declared an interest in potentially buying a new home in the scheme, which features a selection of cottages and apartments.
Prices start from £250,000 for a one-bedroom apartment; from £300,000 to £600,000 for a two-bedroom apartment, some featuring a separate study and from £400,000 for a two-bedroom cottage with separate study. The marketing suite is located at 4 Bush Walk, Wokingham, Berkshire, RG40 1AT. It is open daily from 10am to 5pm.
Set in the grounds of Glebelands, a family home built in 1897 by one of the famous architects of the era, Ernest Newton R A and now a retirement home for The Cinema and Television Benevolent Fund (CTBF), Banner Homes will be developing one- and two bedroom apartments and cottages exclusively for the over 55s in one of the town's highly regarded districts and almost encircled by mature trees.
Shelley West, sales director for Banner Homes Central, says: "Glebelands is a new concept in age-exclusive living. The concept creates a hotel environment for every-day life including a concierge service. The concierge is also available to take delivery of your shopping, greet your guests and assist you with any day to day tasks you may have, such as reserving a table at your favourite restaurant. The development also includes a unique clubhouse complete with kitchen and large TV, for social events with other residents, such as coffee mornings or cinema nights or for your own private hire. There is also a beauty salon on site for visiting hairdressers, beauticians and aromatherapists. It really is the best of both worlds as residents can still have the privacy and space of their own apartment or cottage."
"The development is also ideal for those who are finding their own homes too large to manage but still want to live in luxury surroundings as well as having the peace of mind that you can just lock up and leave if you wish to go away on holiday."
