The expense of an older property or simply freeing up equity of your existing home may be pushing you to move on. In all these cases Eywood House, could be right for you. The exciting new building provides an environment that understands the complex needs of older people whilst enabling independent living. This development, close to St Albans City centre is made up of modern independent living apartments and is owned by housing association, bpha. 

A lovely location 
Situated in the St Julians area of St Albans, the new apartments are surrounded by residential streets. A bus service to the city centre stops outside Eywood House and provides access to local facilities.

Wellbeing in a retirement community

It prides itself on providing independent living with a strong sense of community and an improved quality of life for all residents.

Flexibility with personal care
Residents can access care, should they need it, through Herts at Home. They provide local care services, including support at home. How much does it cost? Well not as much as you might think. With the option of shared ownership, buyers can acquire properties at more affordable rates than they could be otherwise.

Understanding how shared ownership works
By opting for shared ownership, prospective residents can purchase a quality apartment at less than the market value. This is possible thanks to bpha retaining part ownership. “This is a great way to free up capital to make life easier or to take up the opportunities in life that wouldn’t otherwise be available,” say bpha. Apartments at Eywood House are ready to move into and are valued from £206,250 for a 75 per cent share, with the remaining share owned by bpha. A monthly service charge also applies, and you will need to factor in any care costs.

A range of facilities
Eywood House offers a range of amenities and facilities on site including a communal garden and terrace which will provide an opportunity for staff and residents to meet, dine outdoors and participate in external group activities. Residents can enjoy their privacy and independence, with the reassurance of care and support when necessary.
But you will need to hurry as Eywood House has been so popular there is only one apartment left. Apartment 32 is on the top floor with a balcony. There is a final open event on Saturday June 11, from 10am to 4pm.
