The official opening of Audley Mote House takes place today, introducing a new form of independent retirement living to the area. The event will be attended by Nick Sanderson, Chief Executive of Audley Retirement, and Councillor Rodd Nelson-Gracie, Mayor of Maidstone.

Mote House, a Grade II* listed Georgian mansion, contains 14 unique apartments, all with original features. The properties are available to purchase for those over 55 wishing to live an independent and healthy later life in beautiful surroundings. The Audley Club will be open to people over 55 to enjoy and the restaurant will soon be taking bookings for special occasions

Nick Sanderson, CEO of Audley Retirement, commented, “We’re pleased to be opening up one of Kent’s most beautiful Georgian mansions for the first time in generations. Our residents and members will benefit from the restoration of a wonderful property, as well as the availability of an exclusive country club, complete with terrace, restaurant and bistro facilities and a swimming pool.”

He continued, “This is another step in the development of the Audley model of retirement living which focuses on providing choice and independence for those in later life.”

Mote House is situated in the heart of Mote Park, which comprises 450 acres of beautiful grounds and wildlife.

Mote Park will be arranging events and picnics for the public during the year, and opening its doors during the Heritage Open Days.
