Audley Binswood Show Apartment is now open!
This autumn marks a key stage in the completion of Audley Binswood, the luxury retirement village in Royal Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. A show apartment is opening in preparation for the completion of Brunswick House, the latest phase of development for the village.
Audley Binswood, which was recently commended in the Age Restricted Development category at this year’s Sunday Times British Homes Awards, is situated in the heart of the Royal Leamington Spa conservation area. The village is centred around Binswood Hall, a magnificent Grade II* listed Victorian Gothic mansion, formerly known as North Leamington College. First opened in 1847 Binswood Hall was designed by local architect Daniel Squirhill, who was briefed to design a building reminiscent of the great Oxford colleges.
Acquired by Audley in 2011, Binswood Hall has been beautifully and sympathetically restored and forms the centrepiece of the retirement village of approximately 90 apartments. The latest stage of development for the village, Brunswick House, consists of 20 one and two bedroom apartments and will be completed in December this year.
Nick Sanderson, CEO of Audley Retirement, said, “It seems no time at all since we opened Audley Binswood and launching the show apartment in this phase of development is a real milestone. We are really proud of the work under way for Brunswick House and we are looking forward to putting the finishing touches to a village that we believe does justice to its proud heritage.”
Since its official opening in 2014, Audley Binswood has become an integral part of the local community, home to facilities including Whittle’s Restaurant, a popular bar/bistro and a health club with pool and gym. Binswood Hall also regularly hosts events, which welcome both owners and the wider community. The village has created around 25 jobs, including catering and maintenance staff.
Audley Binswood is designed to enable owners to live an independent and healthy life in their own property, in a like-minded community, with access to the Audley Club facilities and flexible care. Individuals buy a property from Audley and own it on a 125 year lease.
