Homes designed for the retirement you always dreamed of

Home is where the heart is, but many people approaching retirement face a difficult conundrum. Your family home may have become too big and difficult to manage. You may want to be nearer friends or family, but have no intention of living with them or surrendering your own independence. You might just need a little extra help…

That’s where Brio Retirement Living comes in.

Brio’s Landale Court in Chapelton offers superb high quality cottages and apartments, immaculately built and designed for those over 55. Operations Director, Morag Stark, previously General Manager at Aberdeen’s Malmaison, explained, ‘Each of the spacious one and two bedroom apartments and delightful cottages features high ceilings, open plan living with streamlined luxury kitchens, spacious bathrooms, generous storage and a host of thoughtful touches like walk in showers with integrated seating, smart home controls and a personal alarm point. It’s what you would have designed for yourself’.

Properties start at £242,000 for an apartment or £260,000 for a 1 bedroom cottage. Brio’s Part Buy/ Part Rent option means you could buy from £125,000 with a rental payment on the balance. There’s also a Rent to Buy scheme if you’ve yet to sell your own home, or you can take a long term rent from around £365 a week on selected properties. Brio will even sort out your removal arrangements.

Whether you choose a cottage or an apartment, the additional factoring fee includes your heating and a 24 hour concierge service to help with everything from collecting dry cleaning, booking a taxi or dealing with a problem. There’s a fitness suite, hobby room and a quiet room, so you can make new friends or keep to yourself. Outdoors, there’s a quiet garden, a fire pit and a rotating summerhouse.

Morag added, ‘If you need extra help, you can arrange service packages to assist with cleaning and chores or getting out and about. For extra help, Brio Care have dedicated staff on site 24/7 to provide exceptional personal care.

‘We have a great brasserie and bar called Slate & Grain, where you can enjoy a glass of wine on the terrace, join friends for lunch or a coffee. If cooking’s a chore, meal packages are available too. It’s about living life your way – a full and fulfilling life’.

The new town of Chapelton lies about 15 minutes to the south of the city with the facilities at Portlethen and Stonehaven within easy reach. There’s a well-developed infrastructure of walking paths, good public transport thanks to the Park and Choose bus interchange and the AWPR nearby, so it’s easy to get about. It’s a charming little town with outstanding architecture, some great local shops and a real sense of community. There are farmers’ markets, regular craft workshops, a popular Scarecrow Festival, bike runs and an annual 10K event.

Why not visit and see how Brio’s Landale Court could be the perfect place to live your best life.
