A discerning older demographic is discovering a new style of ‘later living’ in North London.
In countries like Australia, Canada, Israel, New Zealand and the US, older people have been enjoying their platinum years in dedicated retirement villages, and now forward-thinking developers are bringing this concept to London.
The Landsby in Stanmore is a prime example. This new luxury development by Elysian Residences offers private members’ club-style surroundings, a community of like-minded people, and nurses and care assistants as and when you need them.
With an impressive 50 per cent of the apartments in Phase One already reserved off-plan, the Landsby’s unique approach is clearly one that’s destined to lead the way in luxury later living.
So what’s its secret? Perhaps it lies in Elysian’s distinct focus on enriching the lives of residents through a programme of social, physical and wellbeing activities.
Gavin Stein, Chief Executive Officer at Elysian Residences, explains:
“A zest for life is not something that diminishes with age, and neither does a taste for the finer things.”
Wellness co-ordinators at the Landsby can arrange an array of activities from music concerts to cookery displays, and the development’s own head chef will cater for private dinner parties if you want to invite friends or relatives over.
On-site consultation rooms mean residents will be able to see medical professionals discreetly and conveniently, and salon and spa treatment rooms will add to the five-star experience.
“The local Stanmore market has no other later living residences and ours is the first of its kind,” says Stein. “At Elysian Residences we’re offering a lifestyle, not just a beautiful home, and this is completely fresh to the UK market.
“There’s a pent-up demand for this kind of luxury, and we’re providing high-quality apartments with excellent amenities and services in an area people already know and love.”
The development is set to provide 101 state-of-the-art residences in an Art Deco-inspired building designed by leading London architect Collado Collins.
Owners can expect stylish and spacious covered balconies, large windows, and the elegant feature curves associated with Art Deco-style architecture.
Gavin Stein is clear about Elysian’s vision for the Landsby: “We are dedicated to creating an inspiring and uplifting environment for our owners so that they can continue to live fulfilled and active lives that would not necessarily be possible in a traditional family home.
“When it comes to later living in the UK, the Landsby is a game-changer.”
Construction is on target for completion in November, and a show suite is now open for viewings.
