Rydon constructed a new development of luxury apartments for the over 60s at Rangeford’s Wadswick Green in Wiltshire. Rydon secured two separate phases of work at this new development, with the total contract value at approximately £22m for the combined phases 2A and 2B, involving the delivery of 90 high quality two and three bedroom new homes.
Specifications included spacious kitchens with engineered, high-quality hardwood flooring and Neff appliances. The living rooms have wooden floors and large picture windows that lead onto walk-on balconies with stunning views.
The modern bathrooms have easily accessible walk-in-showers, with luxury taps and fittings. Thorough insulation ensures peace and quiet and supports the energy efficient underfloor heating. Wide entrances and lifts, as well as high-efficiency double-glazed windows, provide a bright and friendly feel.
Set over 25 acres in the Wiltshire countryside, on the site of the former HMS Royal Arthur Naval College that Prince Philip attended, Wadswick Green is a modern village with historic roots.
Residents have access to exclusive facilities including a resident’s only spa with swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, a gym, and hair salon. In addition, the retirement village is home to the highly-rated Greenhouse Coffee Shop and Restaurant, which has proven popular with residents and the Wiltshire community alike.
To embrace the social aspect of community living, residents have also created regular social groups such as book clubs, crafting and walking groups.
Wadswick Green also arranges regular events, days out and offers a chauffeur service that provides lifts to Corsham and other nearby towns.
