On July 5th Audley Binswood opens the doors to the beautiful show apartment at its new Grade-II* listed development in the heart of Leamington Spa. Prospective residents can arrange a tour of the apartment by appointment and experience the quality of design and finish that is the hallmark of an Audley development.

The show apartment, a two bedroom duplex, is located in the original regency building which was once the former Headmaster’s quarters in the site’s former incarnation as Leamington College for Boys. The apartment retains many period features and faithful recreations including ornate ceilings, covings and stunning sash windows. The apartment includes ensuite bathrooms for both bedrooms as well as a modern, well equipped Siematic kitchen and a spacious lounge.

Binswood Hall, the imposing Grade II* listed Victorian Gothic building at the heart of 90 apartment village will be home to several apartments and the Audley Club. The Club provides a range of fantastic facilities including a restaurant, Bar/Bistro, library, swimming pool and health and wellbeing centre.

More than 50% of the apartments in the first phase of development are already reserved, demonstrating the local interest in the renovations of these historic buildings and of the overall retirement living proposition.The village brings a new type of retirement living to the local area and provides those over 55 with choice on where and how they live in retirement. The development has seen a considerable investment of £20 million from Audley Retirement.

Nick Sanderson, CEO of Audley Retirement, said: “Audley is proud to own such a magnificent and historic site in the heart of Royal Leamington Spa. With that ownership comes a significant amount of responsibility, to the property, to the local community and to the future residents of the village. We are fully committed to this development and to bringing this wonderful, interesting property back into use.”

He continued: “The show apartment is another step in the Audley Binswood journey towards completion, and gives potential purchasers a preview of the quality, design and finish that will be achieved. It is an exciting time and we look forward to opening the doors and introducing independent retirement living to a new community.”

Audley Retirement Villages enables those who live there to live an independent and healthy retirement in their own homes and in a like-minded community. They enjoy full access to the Audley Club and its range of facilities with flexible care and support available should it become necessary. Individuals buy their home or apartment from Audley and own it on a 125 year lease.
