Housebuilder Larkfleet Homes has officially opened a show home at the newest phase of its age-exclusive development for the over-55s – The Croft in Baston, Lincolnshire.
The opening was marked by a ribbon-cutting ceremony performed by Larkfleet Homes CEO Karl Hick in front of an invited VIP audience. Guests then joined in the opening celebrations and shared some light refreshments.
The show house will give prospective buyers the opportunity to experience a ‘real life’ version of their potential new home.
The second phase of development at The Croft at Baston is a small number of new homes which sits alongside the highly successful fully-sold first phase, extending the community but keeping it at a modest scale.
The official opening gave guests a chance to see for themselves the quality and finish of one of Larkfleet Homes’ newest developments.
Karl Hick said: “Developments from Larkfleet Homes under The Croft brand are designed to provide the over-55s, whether retired or still working, with the independence of owning their own homes combined with the benefits of being part of a community.
“Baston is very close to our head office and we have done an awful lot of development in this area.
“I have actually lived here in Baston in the past and it's a pleasant village – I've got some positive sentiments for the place.
“The first phase of our retirement scheme here went well and now we’re delivering the second phase.”
The properties at the Croft in Baston are designed and built to suit the busy lifestyles of today’s homebuyers. They are mostly one and two-bedroom bungalows but there are also some three-bedroom chalet bungalows for those who want a little extra space. All have been designed to need minimal ongoing maintenance so that residents benefit from the independence and security of property ownership without the concerns of property upkeep.
Situated close to the A15, The Croft at Baston offers easy access by car or bus to the cities of Peterborough and Lincoln, as well as nearby Bourne and the historic town of Stamford.
The bungalows are located around attractive walkways and gardens, creating a pleasant residential environment. The village itself has two excellent pubs with restaurants, a church, a hairdresser, a post office and a general store.
The new show home at The Croft, Baston, is open from Saturday to Tuesday between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm.
