Whathouse? Gold award winning developer, Adlington, reached new heights last week as a towering 27 meter high crane arrived at The Folds; their most recent development of 50 luxury retirement apartments, situated on School Brow, Romiley.

The crane took one day to erect, is designed to lift a staggering two tonnes at 45m out and will be in ‘free slew’ to meet safety requirements. To assist in the construction of the one, two and three bedroomed apartments exclusively for those over the age of 60, the crane will be in situ until spring 2020 when The Folds is set to complete.

Claire Reede, Adlington Marketing Manager comments: “We are proud to complement the charming village by replacing the former workshop and garage with The Folds, our most recent and sympathetically designed building. It’s clear that people are also aware of the vibrant environment of the site, as we have had many enquiries already.”

Each luxury apartment at the new Romiley development will include high-spec integrated kitchen appliances all at easy to reach heights, lavish décor including fully fitted carpets, alongside accessible yet luxurious bathroom facilities. For that all-important outside space, most will have a balcony or patio area overlooking the beautifully landscaped gardens.

Although independent living is paramount, a bustling community is also prevalent at each of Adlington’s developments.  Residents are invited to enjoy refreshments in the elegant homeowners’ lounge, or a three-course meal in the table service restaurant for around just £4.00. In addition, there will be a hairdressing salon, a spa and therapy facility, activities studio, plus a guest suite equipped with a kitchenette and en-suite for visiting friends and family.

The real point of difference with Adlington is the option of 24-hour on-site support should anyone ever need it, and for that added peace of mind, there will be a sophisticated emergency call system throughout the building and grounds, plus a security video entry facility within each apartment.
