Members of the local community in Surrey joined Anchor’s Sales and Marketing Director, Howard Nankivell and construction partner Castleoak’s Director of Customer Partnerships, Simon Greenstreet, to celebrate Austin Place, Anchor’s new retirement residential development in exclusive Weybridge, becoming watertight. 

Mr and Mrs Evans from Weybridge joined staff from Anchor, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for older people and Castleoak for a tour of the site, which will have 65 one and two bed luxury, independent living apartments. They then had the opportunity to go up to the third floor and enjoy the incredible views from the top of the building.

Anchor’s Austin Place will have a wealth of on-site facilities, including a hair and beauty salon, a treatment room, a coffee shop, lounge, a reading room, a tranquil rooftop retreat and beautiful landscaped gardens. The retirement properties, which are being offered exclusively for sale through Hamptons International Estate Agents in Weybridge, will open in winter 2015.

What local resident’s think of Weybridge’s new retirement development

At the ceremony Mrs Celia Evans said: “We have lived in Weybridge for over 40 years and I used to play on the site as a girl, before there were any buildings there. Anchor’s development is extremely impressive and I am overwhelmed by how light and spacious the apartments are. The fact that there are so many facilities available to the residents is something that really appeals to me and I think it is a great opportunity for those looking to downsize to something a bit more manageable. We can’t wait to see the apartments when they are complete.”

Anchor and Castleoak reflect on Austin Place

Anchor’s Sales and Marketing Director, Howard Nankivell said: “This is a proud moment for Anchor, as the development is now really starting to take shape. People will be able to make the most of living in a spectacular setting with the peace of mind that there are a range of housing and support options available to them. Austin Place is Anchor’s latest example of how we find solutions to our customers’ aspirations and changing needs; our developments offer a supportive and secure environment for the over 55s without compromising their independence.”

Castleoak Director of Customer Partnerships, Simon Greenstreet, said: “We are delighted to be Anchor’s design and construction partner for these aspirational retirement apartments in such an exclusive location.  Austin Place is our ninth development for Anchor and we are proud to be working with them to significantly improve the choice of housing for the over 55s.”

Austin Place on Oatlands Drive will provide residents with everything they need to enjoy an independent lifestyle whilst having the peace of mind knowing there is support on their doorstep if they need it. From luxurious apartments through to first class facilities, every feature of Austin Place has been designed to meet the specific needs of those in their later years and residents will be surrounded by like-minded people in an open minded and inviting community. The development enjoys an attractive woodland backdrop whilst being within easy walking distance of nearby shops and amenities.
