Mayfield Villages has revealed plans for a new retirement village near Watford town centre.
The plans were unveiled by Nick Sanderson, CEO of Mayfield Villages, Paul Morgan, managing director of operations, and Gary Langford, regional sales manager at an event at Watford Football Club on Thursday, February 7.
The plot will be home to 255 mid-market retirement homes centred around the Mayfield Club, which will include a buzzing bar, café-bistro, swimming pool, village hall, fitness rooms and spa.
Mayfield owners will automatically become members of the club, and the facilities will also be available to those in the local community.
A selection of one- and two-bedroom apartments will be available for purchase, with one-bedroom properties starting from £295,000.
The village will form part of Watford Riverwell, a £400million mixed use regeneration partnership between Watford Borough Council and Kier Property that is reviving the area around Watford Hospital and delivering new homes, shops, community facilities and open spaces.
Nick Sanderson, CEO of Mayfield Villages, said: “We have a different vision for the way older people should live and Mayfield Watford is the first step into this new era of retirement living. The village will be fresh, modern, and contemporary with a close sense of neighbourliness, but crucially with access to flexible care as and when people need it.
“The unveiling of that vision has given us a fantastic opportunity to share our plans for the village with those in the local community. We look forward to welcoming our first owners in autumn 2020.”
