Principle to manage luxury retirement development on the Thames

A luxury retirement development on the River Thames in Oxfordshire is to be looked after by Principle Estate Management.

Laureate Gardens Limited, part of the Amber Infrastructure Group, has appointed Principle to manage Laureate Gardens in Henley-on-Thames, an exclusive gated development of 16 apartments, 15 two and three-bedroomed homes and three cottages.

It’s the second exclusive retirement development Principle has been instructed to manage on behalf of Amber after the contract it won last year to look after Albany Meadows in Balsall Common, near Solihull.

The project was completed in February and sees all homes set around a professionally landscaped communal garden.

Ben Tanner, project director at Amber said: “Following the appointment of Principle at Albany Meadows, we knew from the outset we wanted them on board for Laureate Gardens.

“As active stakeholders and long-term investors it is vital that we have a managing agent with the professional capability to manage such a development”

Joe Jobson, a director at Principle, said: “We are delighted to have been instructed on such a flag ship development in what is an oasis setting, built to the highest standards.

“Retirement living is an area of our business we are very focused on growing and I believe instructions like this show that we have the team and management capability to continue to actively grow in the sector.

“We enjoy a great working relationship with Amber and are looking forward to continuing to provide a high-level property management service on their behalf.”
