A BRAND new retirement housing development has taken inspiration from the natural world, writes Jim Tatum.

Retirement housebuilder McCarthy and Stone is set to launch its new development in London Road, Ruscombe, this winter.

Officially launched this week, the development has been named Loddon House in tribute to the tranquil River Loddon, which runs just a short distance from the site.

The top-notch facilities at the new development include a collection of one and two bedroom apartments, all with stylish fixtures and fittings, around the clock security monitoring and beautifully landscaped communal gardens.

Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone South East, Georgina Akers said: “The River Loddon forms a great part of Twyford history and today provides a picturesque and peaceful surrounding for people to enjoy, which is why we thought this would make a fitting tribute.”
