Staff onsite as the build begins

We have begun construction on a major retirement scheme called Riverside in Totnes.

The £12 million ‘extra care’ development on Steamer Quay Road will provide 60 new one or two bedroom apartments for over 55s at affordable rent and shared ownership sale.

What is extra care?

Extra Care enables residents to live in a home of their own and have access to on site care and support services as and when they need them. The Riverside scheme will include: 

  • a café bistro
  • activity areas
  • and a ‘pamper suite’ where residents can arrange haircuts, manicures and beauty treatments.

Each apartment will have a private balcony with views over the River Dart, or over private courtyard gardens. They will also be wheelchair accessible, with wet rooms and fully equipped kitchens.

We expect the homes will be available in the Autumn of 2017.
