Retirement Villages Group Ltd gave Sir Alan Haselhurst, MP for Saffron Walden a sneak preview of its latest development in Great Easton, Essex during a recent visit.

Members of the Retirement Village Group met Sir Alan where he was shown the site and talked through the progress being made. Once compete, the £15 million project will offer 26 individual luxury retirement apartments as part of this unique scheme, each one slightly different to the next. The properties are expected to be complete in spring 2014 and the first opportunity to reserve one will be at a launch event in September.

Sir Alan Haselhurst MP, said: “Maynard House has been described as a jewel in the crown and from my initial impressions it will certainly provide a dazzling lifestyle for retirees and those looking to retire in the coming years.”

The local MP has been a regular visitor to the Moat House Care Home on the same site over the years, which was redeveloped 18 months ago.  The addition of the luxurious apartments along with superb communal facilities will create a proper retirement village which is what Retirement Villages Group Ltd is known for.

Sir Alan added: “It’s was a great pleasure to visit the site and to see the progress being made to what will clearly be a fantastic retirement village. I found it interesting to talk to the developers and gain an insight into the benefits this development will bring to the area and how it will meet the sophisticated needs of those in later life.”

Sarah Burgess, Sales and Marketing Director said: “We are very proud of this development and were delighted to welcome Sir Alan Haselhurst MP to the site to review progress and to receive such a positive reaction.”
