A new retirement living ‘village’- Chapters – off Wilton Road, Salisbury, has been officially opened and is a collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments.
Designed the over 55s, the affordable homes cost from £120,000 for shared ownership.
The first phase, Constable Court, is a collection of 47 apartments among 197 affordable properties for about 300 people.
Chapters is in walking distance of NHS healthcare facilities, transport links and the city centre from the historic Grade-II listed 19th century Finch House and former Old Manor Hospital.
Chapters has its own facilities including an on-site bistro, adjoining a communal terrace and private lounge, for meals and after dinner drinks.
Each of the apartments have been carefully designed with owner independence at the forefront. The open-plan homes are flooded with natural light and the kitchens and bathrooms have all been equipped with the latest in low-maintenance, energy efficient technology.
Balconies in the higher apartments offer sweeping views of city centre, Salisbury Cathedral and the rolling countryside beyond. Friends and family wishing to stay overnight can be booked into one of the self-contained guest suites, creating a comfortable and stress-free home environment for residents and visitors alike.
An on-site Lifestyle Manager helps to build a dynamic community as well as offering support to each of the residents. Developers Platinum Skies say they are committed to long-term partnerships with their buyers, whatever support or care may be required.
The company can manage the sale of residents’ previous property and assist with packing, removals and unpacking, selling, donating or disposing of unwanted furniture, and a handyman for finishing touches in the new home – to make the move to Chapters as straightforward and stress-free as possible.
