Members of the local Weybridge community in Surrey enjoyed the first opportunity to view Austin Place this weekend ahead of its opening on Wednesday (27 January).

Austin Place reception areaOver 150 people visited Anchor's new development on Oatlands Drive for a glimpse of the luxurious retirement apartments. Austin Place also offers a wealth of on-site facilities, including a hair and beauty salon, treatment room, coffee shop, lounge, reading room, tranquil rooftop retreat and beautiful landscaped gardens. 

The retirement properties are being offered exclusively for sale through local estate agents, Hamptons International, in Weybridge and Esher.

Speaking at the event, Anchor’s Housing Operations Director Howard Nankivell said: “It’s great to see Austin Place so busy and lively – you really get a sense of what life will be like here when it opens. There is high demand for retirement properties in Weybridge, and we’ve seen a lot of interest in Austin Place as it is such a flexible solution, offering support and security without compromising independence.”
