Beautiful retirement homes on show at Redclyffe Place, Harpenden


For those who are thinking of buying a new home, a show home can give a sense of what a new home may look and feel like. In terms of Beechcroft, the beautiful show homes can actually change people’s minds about moving home as Angela South, Sales & Marketing Director explains:

“Often, those who visit our show homes arrive with a preconception of retirement properties. When they see the space, the abundance of light, the beautiful fixtures and fittings, they are amazed. They begin to realise that moving to a beautifully designed, easily maintained, energy efficient new Beechcroft home could change their lives for the better.”

“Our visitors are also surprised by the fact that our new homes come complete with integrated kitchen appliances, vanity units and full width mirrors in the bathrooms and en-suites, fitted wardrobes to two bedrooms and flooring fitted throughout. All they must do is move in – and we can help with that. Those who buy show homes also have curtains included.”

Beechcroft’s latest show homes at Redclyffe Place in Harpenden are excellent examples – bearing witness to Beechcroft’s commitment to providing spacious, light-filled homes with fixtures and fittings of the highest quality.

The keynote of the interior design of both the two-bedroom show apartment and the two-bedroom show house is a combination of simplicity and classic design. In both show homes, colours have been selected from a natural palette of soft creams, champagne, stone, and taupe. In the show apartment, shades of blue provide the accent colours whilst in the show house, gentle greys are contrasted by soft golds. The result is elegant, stylish, peaceful, and calming.

The location of Redclyffe Place will impress visitors. Set in mature, beautifully landscaped grounds on Salisbury Avenue, less than half a mile from Harpenden’s shops, restaurants and cultural venues, the development is the result of Beechcroft’s careful conversion of a Victorian villa into three new homes along with the addition of six, sympathetically designed new homes.

The show apartment is a beautiful, two-bedroom ground floor apartment with a spacious triple-aspect drawing room opening onto a private terrace. At the heart of the apartment, a hall offers flexible living space – ideal for use as a dining hall or as another reception or reading room. The principal bedroom has an en-suite with bath and shower and the guest bedroom is adjacent to a separate shower room.

The show house, with two double bedrooms and a study, has a fabulous kitchen/dining room with double doors opening onto a terrace and private garden. A further set of double doors open onto a beautifully proportioned drawing room and a cloakroom with a utility cupboard housing the washing machine/dryer. On the upper floor, both the principal and guest bedrooms have fitted wardrobes in addition to an en-suite shower, there’s a stylish, elegant bathroom.
