Fleur-de-Lis Wantage comprises 32 spacious one and two bedroom apartments and 15 on-site car parking spaces. Close to all amenities and a few minutes’ walk from the high street, the development is seen as the No.1 location for retirement living in the town.
We have designed the development to be sympathetic to its surrounding and ensured the correct detailing is used to reflect and work in harmony with local architecture.
“Wantage is a delightful historic market town and we feel privileged to be part of its very fabric going forward.”
Wantage’s links with its past are very strong – King Alfred the Great was born in the town, and there are literary connections to Sir John Betjeman and Thomas Hardy. The historic market town is the gateway to the Ridgeway – an ancient route through downland, secluded valleys and woodland – where you can enjoy magnificent views of the Vale of White Horse, observe its prehistoric hill figure and pass through countless quintessential English country villages in the Vale.
Fleur-de-Lis offers pedestrian access to Market Place at the heart of Wantage and is full of delightful independent shops, restaurants, pubs and cafés to suit all pockets and palates. The town hosts numerous events and festivals throughout the year to celebrate its literary and historical connections, culminating in the famous Dickensian Evening on the first Friday of December. A market is held every Saturday and Wednesday and the town frequently welcomes a farmers’ market and French and Italian markets.
Those seeking a little more activity within the town and surrounding area have a wide range to choose from, whether that’s a stroll along Letcombe Brook or a visit to the Betjeman Millennium Park. Here you will enjoy winding footpaths through woodland glades of trees, wildflowers and bulbs connecting a poetry trail of stones each inscribed with lines from Sir John’s work. A little further afield, the unusual Ashdown House is well worth visiting to see its Dutch-style 17th century design, and a short drive away is the village of Uffington, home to the prehistoric white horse hill figure.
Fleur-de-Lis Wantage epitomizes independent luxury retirement living, allowing you to enjoy later life with your family, friends and like-minded neighbours. Wantage is the perfect combination of countryside and community. Whichever way you look, you have Oxford in one direction, the North Wessex Downs in the other, and idyllic countryside in-between. It is easy to head out for a country walk with a village pub never far away, which makes Fleur-de-Lis the perfect setting for your new lifestyle.
