Visitors were welcomed to an open day at Inspired Villages Warwick to celebrate the start of work on phase two of the development. The retirement village, in Heathcote, is a partnership between Inspired Villages Group and Legal & General. The first phase in the £65m development has already opened, and scores of people have moved into the village, including 70 year-old great grandmother Lizzie Dunne. 

Lizzie had a busy life, bringing up her children and working as an accounts cashier. But when she retired, aged 67, she was living alone and missed the companionship of the people she worked with.

‘Most of the time I was just sitting watching television,’ she said.

Lizzie decided to move from her house to an apartment at Inspired Villages Warwick. And she said: ‘It has made my life more enjoyable. I have made lots of friends and there are a lot of nice things going on here all the time. You don’t want to be lonely when you get older.’

Lizzie enjoys trips out with her friends, she has been to the theatre, enjoys cinema afternoons at the village and playing scrabble. She also picks up her grandchildren from school once a week.

‘When you retire it is time to look forward to what you can do when work is not in the way,’ she said. ‘I’d like to go up in a hot air balloon. I have always wanted to do that, but I have never got around to it. I’m looking forward to enjoying the rest of my life. I want to make the most of every day.’

 

The second phase in the development is due to be completed by the end of 2018 and will include more apartments and a village centre. The village, in Gallagher Way, will have a total of 167 one and two bedroom luxury apartments for the over 65s. Facilities will include a wellness spa and relaxation pool, gym, deli shop, restaurant and community rooms. Care is available for those who need it.

Sales & Marketing Director James Cobb said: ‘We are proud of what we have achieved at Inspired Villages Warwick, and the difference we are already making to people’s lives.

‘This is a sociable community where our residents can feel safe and secure and enjoy the freedom of later life. We put the health and the happiness of our residents at the heart of everything we do.’

Visitors to the open day enjoyed champagne and refreshments, and also had the chance to look around the village. Prices at the village range from £170,000 for a shared ownership apartment to £980,000 for a penthouse. There are two bedroom apartments available from £350,000 to £450,000. Inspired Warwick is a pioneering development for Inspired Villages Group who aim to create around 3,000 new quality homes during the next five years.
