The Marketing Suite for Honeybourne Gate, the new luxurious retirement development in Cheltenham has been declared open by the town’s Mayor, Cllr Simon Wheeler and Council Leader Steve Jordan.

Honeybourne Gate is being developed by Markey Group, built by Markey Construction with fitted kitchens manufactured by the Markey Group firm, Premiere. The scheme is being backed by private investment company Parallel Capital and is also supported by GFirst LEP with loan funding from the Gloucestershire Infrastructure Investment Fund (GIIF).

Located on what was once a brownfield site, Honeybourne Gate has been specially designed for older people keen to remain independent and continue living in their own properties rather than move into a care home. The scheme consists of 54 one and two bedroom apartments and residents will be able to access “extra care” services including domestic help, assistance with personal care and emergency support at any time. Honeybourne Gate’s high specification apartments are now on sale, from a Marketing Suite at the Gloucester Road site. The apartments will all have access to a range of facilities within the complex, providing residents a cinema, gym, swimming pool and even a roof garden.

Tony Markey, Managing Director of the Markey Group said: “Honeybourne Gate sets a new standard for retirement property in Cheltenham. We are delighted to be involved in this high quality development at one of the key locations within the town. We are delighted with both the progress with the building and the interest already being shown. Tony added “The opening of the new Marketing Suite and Show Apartment represent a significant stage in the development and demonstrates the quality of the build, fixtures, fittings, and the spaciousness of the apartments”. Stephen Ladyman, Oak Retirement founder, said “I’m delighted that the apartment leases are now vailable. Older people want to maintain their independence for as long as possible. At Honeybourne Gate our offer of luxury apartments with flexible services that adapt to your needs, leaves you in control to enjoy your retirement.”
