Hundreds of people have been treated to grand tours of the new luxury retirement village opened at Binswood Hall in Leamington.
Audley Binswood, the new development from Audley Retirement Villages, was officially unveiled by Lady Willoughy de Broke during a VIP reception at the 19th century Grade II* listed site last Thursday.
The event was attended by more than 250 guests, including Leamington Mayor Cllr Judith Clarke and Warwick District Council chairman Cllr Clare Sawdon.
Nick Sanderson, chief executive officer for Audley Retirement, said: “We are pleased to open this magnificent building to another generation of inhabitants and are proud of the hard work that countless people have put in to ensure that Binswood Hall remains one of the jewels of Leamington.
“Retirement as we have known it is changing and as we break away from the past we must meet the ambitions and not just the needs of a discerning and growing demographic.”
The village is home to 90 apartments for people aged 55 and over as well as the Audley Club which includes Whittle’s restaurant, named in honour of jet engine inventor Sir Frank Whittle, who was once a pupil of the former Leamington College at Binswood Hall.
