Solihull Retirement Village in Shirley will offer local people over 55 a new outlook on life when it welcomes its first residents in 2019/20. Offering a social and active lifestyle and care if you need help to stay independent, this inspirational community offers an exciting new opportunity in later life.
Situated in nearly four acres on the former Powergen site, the 260-home Village is on the corner of the Stratford Road and Haslucks Green Road, around 10 minutes from the M42 and an easy bus ride away from central Birmingham.
The Village site is also just across the road from the recently-completed Parkgate shopping centre, and is part of a wider nine-acre development that will include 113 other new homes.
Solihull Village will provide a whole range of communal social and leisure facilities in the village centre which will be open to residents, their families and members of the wider local community. These will include a village hall, library and IT suite, bar and bistro, fitness gym, hairdressing and beauty salon and shop.
Up to 50 activities could be on offer per week including art classes, tai chi, yoga, computer classes and gardening, some sessions run by residents through a range of enriching volunteer opportunities.
Care and support will be available within the village to all residents should they need it, delivered by ExtraCare's dedicated staff team. A well-being and specialist dementia service will also be located within the Village Centre.
The Village will have 260 spacious and well-appointed apartments for purchase, shared ownership and affordable rent, each with its own front door, living room, one or two bedrooms, kitchen and shower room. Most will have their own balcony. Images shown above are artist’s impressions.
