Following the successful development of Brick Kiln Place in Grantham, LACE Housing’s latest development of retirement apartments and bungalows were officially opened by former Chief Executive of the Longhurst Group, Bob Walder. Situated on land off Barrowby Road and with stunning views, Lauriston Court and the neighbouring bungalows on Conisbrough Close form part of a wider development of affordable homes which, during 2016, will benefit from the development of a footpath linking to Barrowby Road and the town centre.
Built to a very high standard, Lauriston Court provides a wide range of communal facilities including ample parking, landscaped areas, external drying facility, door entry system, passenger lift, mobility scooter storage and fully furnished corridors, seating areas and hobby/meeting room. The 21 apartments are spacious with two bedrooms and fully fitted kitchen including high level oven, hob and extractor fan. Services include window cleaning and grounds maintenance.
‘This is our latest development in Grantham, providing much needed affordable housing for older people’ said Nick Chambers, LACE Housing Chief Executive. ‘The aim of Lauriston Court is to enable active older people keen to regain and retain their independence to live within a safe and secure environment. This successful development is as a result of our continued commitment to work in partnership with South Kesteven District Council and will be managed by our existing team based at the nearby Brick Kiln Place’.
LACE are keen to ensure that their latest development responds to local need. In the event that you would like be considered for accommodation and view the facilities, contact Emma Ward on 01476 516358.
Whilst the apartments are subject to an affordable rent, the adjoining 9 bungalows on Conisbrough Close are available for sale on a shared ownership basis. Built to a high specification and with NHBC for 10 years, the two bedroom bungalows are spacious with a fully fitted kitchen and private rear garden. ‘With excellent views, our bungalows are available at 75% of the open market value and best suit older people who seek a modern home and wish retain a financial interest in their property’ said Nick.
