Millbrook Village, the retirement village in Exeter, Devon has launched 23 new two and three bedroom homes at Sanderling House with prices starting from £405,000. The collection of  apartments marks the completion of the final phase of the community designed for active over 55s.

On Friday 2 August, local residents were treated to a cheese and wine afternoon, followed by a village tour and an opportunity to view the beautiful new apartments at Sanderling House. Exeter-based Pebblebed Vineyards provided a selection of English wines made from grapes grown in East Devon, which were complemented by a selection of cheeses from Quicke's Farm Shop.

Millbrook Village is located in an idyllic position on the upper banks of the River Exe and close to Exeter city centre. It comprises apartment and cottage homes that are all finished to the highest standard with spacious rooms and stylish fixtures and fittings. Each apartment at Sanderling House comes with a private terrace or balcony garden and all upper floor apartments have the benefit of lift access.

Springbok Hall forms the central hub of the village with a range of health and leisure facilities including a restaurant, bar, lounge, gym, swimming pool, library, snooker room and activity rooms as well as a cinema and a medical centre with a visiting doctor. The village has a dedicated Wellbeing Navigator who helps residents achieve their fitness and health goals and there is a vibrant community with many resident-run clubs. Millbrook Village offers the ideal environment to make the most of retirement with the opportunity to pick up old hobbies, start new ones and to enjoy the mixture of city and countryside living

Earlier this year, Millbrook Village was recognised for its contribution to retirement living at the Regional Housing for Older People Awards 2019. The village picked up the Bronze award in the category of 'Retirement Housing of 53 units and over', for the excellent services and facilities it provides to its residents. The annual awards, run by the Elderly Accommodation Counsel (EAC), celebrate the best specialist housing for older people and Millbrook Village was is one of only 300, out of the UK's 25,000 retirement housing schemes, to win a top regional prize in the 8th annual awards.

James Cobb, Group Sales and Marketing Director at Inspired Villages, comments:  "It is great to see the launch of the final phase of homes at Millbrook Village , which has been very well received since it launched in 2013 and is now a very well established community, becoming a cornerstone of the Topsham area. As the only retirement village in Exeter, we expect demand to be strong for the last remaining new homes here as they represent the last chance to buy at this vibrant community.

"Research shows we live better for longer in communities that facilitate and encourage active living. Our retirement villages are designed for exactly this, with cottages and apartments arranged around a central clubhouse which provides a range of health and fitness facilities and lots of activities for a sociable and fulfilling retirement."

Homes for sale at Millbrook Village start from £339,950 for a two-bedroom apartment and from £390,000 for a two bedroom cottage. Inspired Villages has recently launched the option to rent properties at Millbrook Village as well and there is a hospitality service available which offers residents help with homekeeping and dining. For more information about the homes available at Millbrook Village, contact the sales team on 01392 339 677,  or visit
