retirementRetirement at Brunel Crescent

Sepember/October 2014


It was very important to ensure that the design of Brunel Crescent included benefits that improve the lifestyle of their over 55’s residents.

They have included lifts to all floors, underground car parking and it is a completely secure site with coded entry system and CCTV. Private and shared terraces overlook the well planted gardens. A Pavilion opening onto the central ‘piazza’ can be enjoyed by all. The centre of Box’s thriving village life is a short walk along the footpath where all local amenities can be found. They are passionate about proving a well-designed, high quality environment which enables easy living with the added benefit of concierge services and care in the home if individuals require it.


The running costs at the Crescent are much lower than at older properties and maintenance charges are lower because of the modern design of the mechanical and electrical systems incorporated into the building. They have included air recycling which keeps the internal environment fresh and incoming areas heated, which cuts down on under floor heating costs. The under floor heating frees up wall space, and includes Wet Rooms which have easy access and are easier to clean but also look great. One of the most important benefits is that they can provide a bespoke internal space with personalised kitchens and bathrooms and any other fixtures and fittings that are required. The Penthouse flats have been conceived to divide into two flats for future flexibility if further downsizing is desirable.


They have had a tremendous response from the market place and endeavour to exceed people’s expectations in terms of design and quality. The feedback they have received from their purchasers is extremely encouraging. The balconies are particularly popular with the owners enjoying watching the sunsets over the open countryside views.

“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
