Arbor Vale
'Retirement' housing is a bit ubiquitous, frankly it has become stigmatised. Age-exclusive housing should be aspiration driven rather than needs driven. At a time when disposable income and available leisure time are at their optimum level, who on earth wants to compromise their lifestyle?

If anything, a new home at this stage should be about enhancing this new lifestyle: Well-designed, resort-style living in well equipped, light filled homes within a peaceful, quiet garden setting with the emphasis on well-being.

That was the thinking behind Arbor Vale; we wanted to offer people the chance to drop a couple of bedrooms and any onerous maintenance responsibilities but without having to compromise on the quality of their living space. We wanted to create an intelligently designed community of like-minded individuals.

Dinas Powys
Dinas Powys is a village with a strong sense of identity and its own gentle sense of warm community. Set at the Eastern most point of the Vale of Glamorgan, it can also feel like a suburb of the city of Cardiff and indeed journey time by train from the village to Cardiff Central is just 14 minutes.

This thriving village provides a range of shops, salons, three public houses, cafe and deli. Leisure facilities include tennis, golf and bowling clubs and beautiful walks over the Common and throughout the surrounding woodland. The village is noted for its excellent primary schools.

Dinas Powys is an easy commute from Cardiff, being just 5 miles south west of the capital city and 9 miles south east of J33 of the M4 motorway.

The village has excellent transport links to the city centre with Dinas Powys railway station providing frequent services to Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan. Bus services operated by both Cardiff and Vale of Glamorgan
operate within the village.

East Terrace
Backing onto the tree-lined driveway and overlooking the communal gardens, East Terrace is a gently stepped mews of five houses, each offering a total of four bedrooms over three floors.

The large and light ground floor is arranged in a fluid open-plan design with the living room having full height windows to front and rear with doors leading out to the gardens. The well-equipped kitchen features a central island with breakfast bar and a whole host of integrated appliances.

There are three bedrooms on the first floor, the master featuring a dressing room and en-suite bathroom plus a separate shower room. On the second floor is a further bedroom suite which has its own dressing room and en-suite bathroom. This private suite also has access to a west-facing balcony which looks set to enjoy some excellent views.

These houses each enjoy a small forecourt to the front plus a manageable private patio garden at the rear.
