The new scheme will offer 147 contemporary retirement properties with the first phase of the scheme due be completed next year and the whole scheme in 2025.
The development is being built on a piece of land previously used for growing strawberries.
Howard Nankivell, CEO of Rangeford Villages, said: “The Strawberry Fields site is phenomenal, and we are keen to do it justice by providing quality homes facilities and services for its residents.”
Paul McGee, Joint Managing Director from Bennett Construction said: “We are delighted to begin work on the Stapleford project for Rangeford. This is a flagship project for ourselves and our client in the retirement living sector and we look forward to delivering a very high quality product in the collaborative approach that we bring to all of our projects.”
Homes at Strawberry Fields will be built with the needs of over 60s in mind, with provision of onsite care for residents, allowing them to live independently with confidence.
