Entrepreneur builds a £50m retirement village good enough for his mum
Entrepreneur and developer Robin Hughes has completed a £50m retirement village in Windsor good enough for his mum.
The Castle Retirement Living Founder and CEO’s mother is among the first residents of Castle View Windsor in Berkshire.
Robin, who worked in the property and care sector for over 20 years before creating his own vision as an independent retirement developer, said: “For me, everything about the development from start to finish has been attention to detail in every aspect which has to be ‘good enough for mum’.
“I want her to be very happy and comfortable here along with other residents and retirees with as much support as and when they need it with our range of assisted living packages. Having lived in the town all my life I wanted to create a great quality, affordable local retirement village.
“We’re running the building and creating a community environment. Most of the purchasers are local, so mum is amongst friends and like-minded residents.
With prices for its 64 apartments ranging from £390,000, to £790,000, the village boasts a rooftop sky lounge, bar and terrace with views of Windsor Castle.
The development is also situated next to a 72 bed care home operated by Care UK.
Robin added: “While along with our stunning castle views, we’re offering residents access to great local facilities such as Windsor Lawn Tennis Club and Windsor Leisure centre, a pet friendly policy in all ground floor apartments, and no smoking across the development.
“Working with a first class team, I’m very proud of what we’re creating at Castle View Windsor for all our residents. Building a project of this scale and complexity and delivering it on time is setting a new standard for urban retirement villages in the UK. I’m delighted to have achieved this in my home town and that mum is one of our first residents.”
