Downsizing the easy way
WHAT ARE TODAY’S 60+ GENERATION LOOKING FOR WHEN IT COMES TO HEALTH AND FITNESS?
“Home owners at Wildernesse House will have access to a lap pool; a studio for yoga, pilates and tai chi; a sauna; steam room; and fully equipped gym. With a network of retirement developments all over the country, we understand that retirees today are looking for classes and equipment that are tailored to their needs – whether that’s low impact weight machines that reduce strain on joints, like the Keiser equipment we use, or carefully thought-out tai chi classes with a focus on standing and movement. For our home owners, well-designed facilities are a big part of the appeal when they are planning a move – and they find it reassuring to know there will be someone like me on hand to show them how to use the equipment, help them find what suits them best when it comes to staying fit, as well as to advise on everything from sleep patterns to nutrition.”
WHAT WILL LIFE BE LIKE AT WILDERNESSE HOUSE?
“As well as looking after their own wellbeing, owners love being able to share the Wildernesse House experience with friends and family. It could be a session in the pool with grandchildren, a family supper in the restaurant or an exercise class with a local friend. Visitors can even opt to stay overnight in the guest suite.
“The exercise classes and events – which cover everything from smoothie making to skin care – can be a great way for the owners to meet each other and form firm friendships. Honesty bars in the communal lounges are also the perfect spot to enjoy a post-class refreshment.”
IS LOOKING GOOD AS IMPORTANT AS FEELING GOOD TO RETIREES?
“Our spas are very popular and as well as ladies booking in for all the usual treats - manicures, pedicures and massages - we’re beginning to see more men come along for a traditional wet shave service. Owners at our developments are generally busy people, who have often only recently stepped away from a hectic professional life. Looking after themselves is second nature – but it’s also a great chance to just pause for a moment, to relax, and to have a chat.”
Prices for the Wildernesse House Mews start from £655,500 and the main house from £959,500.
