As part of Spotlight on extra care month, each week throughout October, we'll be bringing you the details of one of our extra care schemes.
This week, it's St Bede’s in Bedford...
St Bede's comprises 104 one and two bedroom luxury apartments. Each apartment is built to a high specification and the majority of apartments also include an external balcony or terrace with space for a table, chairs and plants too. The scheme offers an array of communal facilities, including: a restaurant, cafe, hair salon, shop, garden room with terrace, games room and a library incorporating an I.T. suite.
In fact, St Bede's is so well designed that it is ‘award-winning’; architects, PRP, won the HAPPI Housing Design Award for the scheme in 2011. The scheme is also in the running for the What House? Awards 2014 and Chartered Institute of Housing Midlands Awards 2014.
