25th July 2014


We all reach a stage in life when we when we re-evaluate what we actually want or need from a home.

Perhaps the children have moved out and you are thinking about something smaller, or maybe you would rather be spending your time on the things you want to do instead of maintaining a property.


A new home can provide the solution. Low maintenance, comfort and warm are attractive, but you are looking for something more than that - easy living with real quality.


This is Brunel Crescent, a unique private development of 12 Apartments and 3 Penthouses at Box, a vibrant village near Bath, is setting a new trend. Designed with the 55+ in mind, it offers an outstanding quality of life in a secure, fully serviced environment.


Built from traditional ashlar stone and natural slate, the development occupies a landscapes hillside with stunning rural views overlooking the Bybrook Valley. Large balconies, terraces and gardens bathed in sunshine bring a truly Mediterranean feel, apparent as soon as you enter through the Florentine iron gate. The central piazza paved with granite setts from Lake Como, is dominated by a burbling fountain from the South of France. Inside ceramic tiles are from Monza and door furniture is from an Italian artisan maker outside Milan. The quality is outstanding. 


Parking is in a secure underground car park with lifts to all floors. Full CCTV and a 24/7 emergency alarm add to the peace of mind. Underfloor heating and heat recovery ventilations systems ensure the indoor environment is always comfortable, while kitchens are fitted with Corian worktops, soft close doors and drawers and high quality integrated appliances.


A care and concierge service and full site maintenance is included. For the full story visit or call Blueview Properties on 01225 744321.

“Brunel Crescent stood out because of the high quality of the finish everywhere, and we should like to live there because it is a small block of only 15 residences situated in a lovely position in a very pleasant village. So many we have looked at have been in much more urban surroundings and contain too many homes.”
Mr & Mrs Morrell, Cornwall

“My late husband judged What House's "Best Apartment competition" for thirteen years so we visited hundreds of apartments up and down the country.  With this in mind I would say that what attracted me to Brunel Crescent was that it seemed to be well built with top quality finishes but, the best thing was the view, parking facility and storage space.  So many small apartments have little or no cupboards or store rooms, Brunel Crescent has both.”
Mrs Jones, Dorset

“We went around the Crescent apartments yesterday.  We both thought the penthouse was very impressive, spacious and thoughtfully and carefully detailed, all down to you personally we suspect!  The so-called retirement market is lacking this sort of apartment, and is something I have been advocating over many years to developers.  We hope the development proves successful for you, it deserves to.”
Mr Ward, Wiltshire
