Stepnell chosen for final phase
of development at luxury Oxfordshire retirement community


Stepnell has been appointed by leading retirement living specialist Richmond Villages, who are part of Bupa, to build the final phase of an award-winning luxury Oxfordshire retirement community.

Work is under way by Stepnell on Mill Stream Mews, a £1.2 million development of six high-specification one- and two-bedroom apartments at Richmond Letcombe Regis, near Wantage.

State-of-the-art spa complex with gymnasium

Designed by PRC Architecture, the luxury homes are being built within the village’s 36-acre grounds at a secluded location which is also close to the village centre with its wide range of facilities, including a state-of-the-art spa complex with gymnasium and pool and the village’s beautiful lakeside restaurant.

All six new apartments – which are being built to the highest standards of quality and comfort incorporating ergonomically designed kitchens and walk-in showers – have already been reserved.

“Our team brings extensive experience in delivering superb retirement housing and we are thrilled to be working with Richmond Villages to help complete the final phase of homes at this truly exceptional development,” says Stepnell director Tom Wakeford.

Albert Josephs, development manager at Richmond Villages said “We are delighted to be working with local company, Stepnell. Their experience of developing high quality housing plus their helpful and professional attitude gives us great confidence that this will be a highly successful project.”

Richmond Letcombe Regis opened in 2010. It won Gold in the What House? Award for 'Best Retirement Development 2010', the 'Best Retirement Development' in the Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2011 and was voted 'Best Innovation in Retirement Housing' by Over-50s Housing Weekly magazine.
