One of London’s first luxury retirement villages has just completed and is promising to offer an unprecedented level of high-end living to a new generation of older people wanting to live centrally in the city.
Developed by Audley Group in partnership with Apache Capital Partners, Nightingale Place offers 94 luxury apartments and will be home to a whole suite of on-site facilities focused on physical and mental wellbeing.
Properties will range from one to three-bedroom apartments, as well as a number of penthouses, which overlook Clapham Common and sit right next to Clapham South tube station.
Homes are still available at Audley Nightingale Place and prospective owners can be given virtual tours and conduct video calls with the sales team to talk through their options in more detail until it is appropriate to offer tours of the village itself.
The first owners, who move in May, will have access not only to round-the-clock care and wellbeing services as and when they need but also, once social distancing measures allow, the 17,000 sq. ft. Audley Club, which is open to the wider community as well as Audley owners. Facilities at the Audley Club include a library, restaurant and bar, cinema, swimming pool and luxury health club. Until that point, as in all other Audley villages, owners will be supported in their social distancing, with Audley providing shopping support, meal options, online wellbeing support including nutrition and exercise plans and numerous virtual initiatives to ensure people feel connected.
Having previously acquired the site, Apache Capital brought on Audley Group to deliver the homes in 2017. Apache Capital and Audley Group appointed McLaren Construction in 2018 in a £51 million build contract to manage construction on the project and ensure that the build completed on time and met both companies’ exceptional standards.
The £125m GDV joint venture is the first project Apache Capital and Audley Group have completed together, and marks Audley’s first London retirement village.
