Over the past few months Redcroft care home in Southbourne has been a hive of activity involving diggers and muddy boots plus ample supply of cookies for those involved.
What have we been doing?
Those who have visited us at Redcroft recently will already know that we are building two fabulous garden rooms where the old garage used to stand. Both bedrooms will benefit from en-suite wet rooms and full disability access.
Plus a conservatory!
Yes, we wanted to take advantage of the beautiful grounds by adding a relaxing conservatory within the extension. The new living space has double doors, glass skylight, windows to two walls, and will be the perfect spot to pass a moment or two enjoying the view of our chickens, new cabin and sensory path as the scent of lavender and herbs drift in on a breeze. Or, perhaps to step through the doors onto the new patio for alfresco dining!
In addition, we are creating a new office space for meetings and a brand new laundry room which we are super excited about. The fabulous old building does have Edwardian plumbing, meaning our washing machines have fought constant battles over the years. The new laundry room will have whizzy machines which are energy efficient, quiet and quick = happy team!
When will everything be ready?
We are already accepting referrals for the new garden rooms (one is reserved) and, if this is of interest to you or someone you know, please email info@applehouse or call 01202 428158 for a no-obligation visit or chat. Completion is planned for the end of May. Watch this space for news of a garden party to launch our new wing. We are combining our summer garden party with a launch party and would love to see you there for live music, great food and more.
