It is not just the people who have visited or bought at Bramshott Place Village in Liphook, who are raving about it. The over 55s village has just been awarded a top accolade at the property industry’s version of the Oscars, The What House? Awards 2010.
At a gala presentation lunch on Friday November 19th, in London’s Grosvenor House Hotel, Bill Gair, Chief Executive of Urban Renaissance Villages Ltd, joint developer of Bramshott Place Village with Helical Bar plc, was presented with the coveted silver award for Best Retirement Village.
The What House? Judges visited many retirement developments in this category and commented on Bramshott Place Village; “Everything really is marvellous! The cottages and apartments are roomy and well designed. The dimensions are such that there is no need for the special doll’s house furniture, occasionally found in retirement home show flats. The interiors are cleverly thought out to provide versatile space: maybe a downstairs spare bedroom or an upstairs study.”
The judges were also impressed by the fully restored Grade II* listed Tudor gatehouse at Bramshott Place Village, the sole remains of the Tudor manor house which once stood on the site. It is an important building being one of only 5.5% of listed buildings to have the * listing, and has been meticulously restored to its former glory, having been saved from the English Heritage Register of Buildings at Risk. The judges commented: “That this has been saved from collapse at huge expense and great care and says quite a lot about the standard of the development. A great place to spend an active and social retirement.”
A very limited number of properties are still available for immediate occupation at Bramshott Place Village. The last six cottages are about to be released for sale, and the new larger apartment show home will be available for viewing from 4th December.
