Over 200 care home beds and 57 extra care apartments have been created by the latest completions from care sector development, design and build specialist, Castleoak.
Care UK’s 70-bed care home, Mill View, in East Grinstead, is designed around a central, internal ‘village’, including a hairdressing salon, shop, cinema, and coffee shop. The landscaped grounds also include a village green.
Castleoak has also handed over Annabel Court in Weston-super-Mare to Advice Doctor Ltd. Besides its 66 single, ensuite bedrooms, Annabel Court will offer day care in the purpose-built day care suite which includes a cinema room, kitchen, hair salon and dining room as well as access to the landscaped, secure gardens.
At Mollington in Cheshire, Oak Grange is Barchester Healthcare’s latest care home.
The 70 ensuite bedrooms all have Wi-Fi connectivity, and facilities include landscaped sensory gardens, as well as a hair and beauty salon, coffee bistro and cinema. This project is a Castleoak development backed by the Bridges Sustainable Property Fund, which requires buildings to demonstrate environmental leadership, and is on track to achieve the BREEAM Excellent environmental standard.
The second and final phase of Leggyfield Court in Horsham was handed over to Saxon Weald. This 57-apartment extra care development was a reprovision of the previous, outdated building, and, as such, was phased, with residents on site throughout. Phase 1, comprising 21 apartments with associated communal facilities such as a residents’ lounge, dining room and buggy store, was handed over in August 2010. Phase 2 added 36 apartments, a commercial kitchen, hairdressing salon, guest suite, assisted bathroom, laundry area and care suite. The apartments are a mix of one and two bedrooms and are offered for both sale and rent.
