We are delighted to announce that construction work is under way on our latest next-generation care home development in a prime location in Bedford close to schools, hospitals and popular amenities.
Sycamore Heights Nursing Home, in Shakespeare Road, has been designed by award-winning architects Condy Lofthouse (CLA) to deliver the quality of a boutique, luxury hotel.
When it opens in autumn 2023, the home will combine beautifully appointed rooms with elegant and spacious living areas.
The design provides for a stylish café, a beauty salon and an exquisite roof terrace with a glass balustrade; enhancing the look will be an elegant glass corridor overlooking landscaped gardens.
Kingsley Healthcare’s Chief Investment Officer Muj Malik said: “We have worked closely with local councillors, planners and the local community to deliver a scheme that will define luxury care in Bedford while creating 100 local jobs.”
