Blue Cedar latest.
Blue Cedar Homes providing suitable properties for a new generation of active retired.
Following a report by the International Longevity Centre revealing a shortage of specialist retirement properties in the UK, Blue Cedar Homes’ Managing Director Nick Hole looks at how the company is meeting the needs of a new generation of active retirees.
The study, which was released earlier this year, found that specialist retirement properties currently being built do not meet demand for the increasing ageing population, resulting in a predicted retirement housing shortage of 160,000 by 2030.
Findings also revealed that over 50% of over 65s live in homes with two or more spare bedrooms.
Baroness Sally Greengross, Chief Executive of ILC-UK said:
“Our report highlights that there are millions of over 50s who haven’t adapted their housing for old age and may be in homes too big for them. Retirement housing could be a solution for some older people but we are building far too few of this type of housing.”
Since 2008, Exeter-based Blue Cedar Homes have been building specially designed detached high quality homes to meet the needs of the over 55s. The company continues to build exclusive developments to help fill this ever growing demand, having just commenced construction of their 200th new home.
On Friday 7th October, the Exeter-based new homebuilder is inviting potential buyers to view the showhome at its Stannary Gardens development.
Nick Hole, Director of Blue Cedar Homes said:
“Blue Cedar Homes was established as a response to personal experience of family members not being able to find suitable accommodation when they wanted to downsize their property in later life and this research further supports this notion and shows there is more work to be done.
“Our developments aren’t retirement complexes, they offer flexibility and independence with the added benefits of security, likeminded neighbours, spacious homes and a visiting Estate Manager to take care of the gardens and provide general maintenance across the development.”
As well as enjoying an exclusive, private and beautifully landscaped setting, each Blue Cedar Homes property has its own garage, additional parking and private rear garden.
All houses are finished to a very high standard with quality fixtures and fittings used throughout and offers flexible ground floor accommodation, with the ability to create an additional bedroom and en-suite if a homeowner’s needs should change in the future.
Blue Cedar Homes is now building a selection of large retirement apartments and houses, in Chagford set in Dartmoor National Park and across the Westcountry, including Oxfordshire, Cornwall and the Cotswolds, to help meet the desire for new retirement homes in exceptional locations.
