Retirement as a sustainable way of life

27.03.20

Pearl House, a new collection of elegant homes for the over 65s in Newbury’s historic centre prioritises sustainability and residents’ wellbeing through a number of excellent design and lifestyle features.

Designed for independent living, every home is a sanctuary in which its residents can relax and enjoy their own space which includes their own private outdoor area, yet the collection of residents’ amenities – including a bistro, courtyard gardens and a shared living space – provide plenty of opportunities for socialising when preferred. When required, additional care services are available which can be tailored to suit personal requirements.

These superb, modern homes – which include 12 penthouses - are arranged across a collection of four-storey red-brick contemporary buildings that complement the surrounding Georgian architecture.

Pearl House is a superb illustration of Eden’s commitment to sustainability, providing a number of opportunities for its residents to lead a more sustainable retirement.

Gardens and green initiatives

Each elegant penthouse benefits from its own private rooftop garden, creating the perfect place to plant flowers to attract wildlife or for the very green-fingered, grow your own vegetables. A central landscaped courtyard provides relaxing outdoor space for all residents to socialise with their neighbours.

Landscaping across the scheme incorporates native species, which contributes to the area’s existing ecosystem and thrives with precipitation, meaning a low level of manual watering is required.

In addition, the design at Pearl House has its own green initiatives; among these is the use of renewable and low carbon technology, such as photovoltaic panels (PV) and low energy external lighting, as well as water-efficient fittings such as low-flow showers in all homes.

Embracing a healthy diet

To help residents live a sustainable lifestyle, Eden works with brands that support its ethos, such as Radish. It supplies later-living catering for its eat-in restaurants alongside dine-at-home services and recently trialled Veganuary with its residents at several retirement developments across the UK.

Radish is working closely with Eden’s food development team and the company’s nutritionist to introduce meat-free days more regularly in all its locations. Rebecca Bridgement, managing director of Radish, says: “This may be a huge change from what Eden’s residents are traditionally used to, so we are keen to continue emphasising the health benefits that eating a plant-based diet can achieve.”

There’s also an emphasis on recycling; when dining at one of Eden’s developments, you can be confident it takes every opportunity to reduce wastage. Radish ensures all of its food is served without packaging unless requested and has swapped plastic disposables in favour of recycled paper straws and cutlery.

Prioritising a healthy lifestyle and minimising environmental impacts

At Pearl House, its town centre location in the heart of Newbury means the local shops are within easy walking distance.

For days out, there is a car and scooter share club; residents can hire either mode of transport when required for extra convenience.

One-bedroom apartments at Pearl House are priced from £275,000. If you’d like to find out more about the availability or living sustainably in retirement, call Eden on 0203 757 2828 or visit www.edenrl.com/portfolio/newbury/.
