Set within the spectacular parkland of the Hensol Castle Estate,Hensol Castle Park is an exclusive collection of two and three-bedroom apartments that are located within walking distance of the world-class Vale Resort.
HensolCastleParkis a Grade I listed development that dates back over three centuries. The stunning grounds were once home to a hospital, and ten of the ward buildings are now being converted into state-of-the-art apartments by the Vale Resort and family-owned retailer Leekes.
The £20 million project began in 2009 and will see the creation of 58 modern two and three-bedroom apartments. Nine of the ward buildings will house six units, whilst the old concert hall will incorporate four spacious units.
Although each of the apartments has been individually designed, they will all share a common theme of contemporary charm and sophistication. All of the apartments will span two floors and boast a high quality internal specification that includes top-of-the-range kitchens and modern bathrooms suites.
Enviable features will include large windows and high ceilings, whilst the generous room proportions (1100 sq ft to 2000 sq ft) make the most of the natural light. Sustainability is an important aspect of the project and the homes feature climate control technology along with low voltage lighting and natural materials wherever possible.
In order to retain the original character of the buildings, hardwood windows in the original design have been installed in all of the stone buildings, whilst replica heritage hardwood entrance doors have also been installed.
All of the residents atHensolCastleare offered free access to facilities at the Vale Resort, which include one of theUK’s finest private member health and racquet clubs, two championship golf courses. Residents atHensolCastleParkwill benefit from free membership of the health and racquets club and those wishing to join the prestigious golf club will be exempt from the joining fee.
Managing Director of the Vale Resort, Stephen Leeke, said:
“This is an exciting new venture for us, as it is a completely different business sector. Obviously the market hasn’t been brilliant over the last three years, but we have managed to buck the trend – so far we’ve built 46 units and sold 41 of them.
“Sales have gone very well and we’ve managed to pace the construction process so we’re selling at the same rate. I think this is testament to the fact that the homes are suitable for a wide range of prospective buyers, from those downsizing due to children leaving the family home to professionals and those who live abroad for part of the year.
“It is pleasing to see that a lot of the residents are buying into the lifestyle of the resort. Our health club celebrates 4,000 members and we also have two restaurants and five bars – which all of our residents are welcome to enjoy. This makes Hensol Castle unique, as there aren’t any other developments in the area where you can have exclusive access to such facilities whilst enjoying fully maintained grounds.
“The project has progressed very well despite several planning issues and we are very proud to be delivering these beautiful, high quality homes.”
