The First Residents at Almond Close Move In

Ann-Veronica is one of the first residents to move into the new Almond Close apartments at Rangeford Villages Wadswick Green. Set over 25 acres in the rolling Wiltshire countryside, Wadswick Green is a lifestyle village for over 60s located in Corsham.


Featuring 45 one, two and three bedroom apartments, the new apartments of Almond Close embrace the ethos of Wadswick Green and its residents, who are semi or fully retired and want to live an activity-rich life in a friendly community.

Initially, Ann-Veronica did not plan to move for another few years as her health was no concern. However, after a bad winter, Ann-Veronica’s home was starting to prove too big to look after and she decided to move sooner.

Ann-Veronica says: “I like the fact that I have moved here now and can settle down for the long term. It has everything in terms of care that I need for the future.”

Commenting on the reasons for purchasing, she says: “Space is the best thing about Wadswick Green, which is really important to me. The apartments are very spread out and a huge selling point for me was how much privacy and green space my flat offers.”

Almond Close apartments boast an open-plan layout and feature spacious kitchens with engineered, high-quality hardwood flooring and the latest Neff appliances, as well as modern bathrooms including walk-in showers, luxury taps and fittings.

Ann-Veronica leads a very social and active life and is gradually introducing herself to a variety of activities and groups on offer. “I’m really enjoying life at Wadswick Green. I wasn’t sure how much I would take part in before I moved, but I have been doing aqua aerobics and have attended a resident’s supper. It’s been good to get to know people. I’m just gradually introducing myself to life here – mixing life at Wadswick Green with the life I had before.”

New residents of Almond Close can take immediate advantage of the village’s extensive amenities, which include a swimming pool with Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, gym, spa and hair salon. In addition, the retirement village is home to the highly rated The Greenhouse Coffee Shop and Restaurant.

Ann-Veronica utilised the Stress Free Moving Services available to new residents and was helped with packing and cleaning. “Although I’ve always led a minimalist life, it was incredibly helpful having help with packing and unpacking. A member of the team helped me, and she even arrived at my Almond Close apartment to unpack before me! By the end of the day, she had unpacked everything except for a couple of boxes of books.”

With less to worry about at Wadswick Green, owners have more time to do the things they enjoy.

Almond Close apartments start from £335,500
