First look inside Mayfield Watford retirement village
Properties in a retirement village under construction in Watford are proving “incredibly popular”, according to the developer’s managing director.
The Mayfield scheme near Watford General Hospital consists of 255 one and two bedroom retirement apartments with access to communal gardens, swimming pool, gym and cafe-bistro.
The development is part of Riverwell’s wider program and is expected to open later this year.
Nick Sanderson, who is the head of the Audley Group, which provides retirement villages, says there have been more sales at Watford at this stage than at any of their other villages.
He said: “Mayfield Watford has already proven to be incredibly popular. We have seen the most properties sold before opening, compared to any other village in our Audley Group portfolio.
“What this highlights is the simple need to give more people more choice about how and where they live as they age.”

As the first phase of construction nears completion, the Audley Group has released images of a show apartment to give a taste of what the properties will look like inside.
The Audley Group says apartments start at £334,950 and range up to £454,950.
As the move-in date approaches, the Audley Group has appointed Nick Vincent as managing director of Mayfield Watford.
Mr. Vincent said, “To lead and help shape the Mayfield brand as Audley Group enters the middle market is a fantastic opportunity for me.
“Mayfield will draw on some of the attributes that make Audley great, high quality interiors, a balanced and varied event calendar and, most importantly, team members who care and deliver high levels of customer service.”
He added: “At Mayfield, owners can be part of a community and socialize with like-minded people while creating memories for life.”
