A new Chelsea luxury retirement development is offering one bedroom apartments for £3m.
The 55 luxury one- and two-bedroom apartments feature 24-hour care provided by Draycott Nursing.
Johnny Sandelson, who co-founded Auriens with Karen Mulville, said: “Downsizing becomes a much more exciting prospect when you can enjoy the service of a luxury hotel and the style of a private members’ club, with the reassurance of the very best healthcare from Draycott Nursing & Care, and that’s what we’re creating here at Auriens.
“We see later life as something to celebrate and want Auriens to become a place of style, substance and vitality that our residents can really look forward to moving in to – essentially, it’s downsizing to upgrade.”
The development will include a ‘world-class’ restaurant and interiors by hotel designer Richmond International.
Additional features include 24-hour concierge service, a hydrotherapy pool, spa, gym, private members club, chauffeur, pet parlour, cinema and gardens designed by RHS Chelsea Flower Show multiple award-winning Andy Sturgeon.
Technology features include falls predicting radar technology, motorised kitchen cabinets and circadian lighting.
Auriens, which is backed by South African real estate fund, Zenprop, plans to launch in more London locations as well as abroad.
Karen said: “This isn’t your average show studio. It’s a test bed for the latest and most creative innovations for later life living, something that we are very passionate about here at Auriens. It gives a feel of what it would be like to live in this luxury residence, providing that wow factor for our prospective customers.”
