WORK has begun on a £1.2m care home development in Letcombe Regis near Wantage.

The six “high-specification” one and two-bedroom apartments are the final phase of the Richmond Village care complex.

It comes after a plan for 44 retirement apartments at the former Wantage Police Station in Church Street was rejected by Vale of White Horse District Council.

The Mill Stream Mews development at Letcombe Regis is being built by builders from Wantage working for Stepnell.

The luxury retirement homes are being built within the village’s 36-acre grounds, including a spa complex, gymnasium, swimming pool and a lakeside restaurant.

Stepnell director Tom Wakeford said: “Our team brings extensive experience in delivering superb retirement housing and we are thrilled to be working with Richmond Villages to help complete the final phase of homes at this truly exceptional development.”

Richmond Letcombe Regis opened in 2010 and won gold in the What House? Award for Best Retirement Development the same year.

Richmond Villages development manager Albert Josephs said: “We are delighted to be working with Stepnell.

“Their experience of developing high-quality housing plus their helpful and professional attitude gives us great confidence this will be a highly successful project.”
