Leading retirement specialist, Beechcroft, is delighted to be bringing another new development to Wallingford, the company’s ‘home town.’ The launch of Longcross Place, an exclusive collection of just 23 one and two-bedroom apartments, designed for the over 55s, took place on Saturday 27th January and Beechcroft’s sales team was delighted with the response from home buyers.

Set in beautifully landscaped, fully maintained gardens, just off Winterbrook and approximately half a mile from Wallingford town centre, Longcross Place already looks set to emulate the success of previous Beechcroft developments, Silversmith Place and Farthing House. 

“The launch of Longcross Place was well attended by prospective homebuyers and their families and others have made appointments to view in the coming weeks,” comments Angela South, Sales & Marketing Director for Beechcroft.  “Two of the apartments were reserved on the day and we have considerable interest in the remaining apartments. “

This level of interest isn’t surprising.  Each of the new apartments at Longcross Place provides plenty of light-filled living space, either a terrace, balcony or private garden – or a combination of these – along with allocated parking.  The residents’ lounge, with its kitchenette and sun terrace, offers an attractive communal space where residents will be able to relax, socialise and hold a variety of activities. 

Founded 40 years ago, Beechcroft has remained true to its principle of creating elegant retirement properties which provide plenty of living space but fewer bedrooms than one would expect to find in a ‘mainstream’ property of a similar size.  The fixtures and fittings are of the highest standard.  Kitchens come complete with a full range of integrated appliances, bathrooms and en-suites feature vanity units and fitted mirrors and flooring, including high quality carpeting, comes as standard – so there’s no need to spend money on ‘extras.’   The new apartments are energy efficient, easy to maintain and meet Beechcroft’s rigorous Healthihouse™ standards being designed to promote a healthy and hygienic living environment.

At Longcross Place, as at all Beechcroft developments, an Estate Manager is on hand to maintain the communal areas, including the landscaped setting and private gardens, enabling home owners to relax into retirement at the heart of a friendly community of like-minded people.
