Work has started on a scheme to bring eleven new close-care bungalows to Tixover, near Stamford in Rutland. Healthcare design and build specialists Castleoak Construction will develop 11 bungalows in a courtyard arrangement next to Tixover House nursing and residential home. The units are being developed and sold on a long-leasehold basis by Castleoak subsidiary Tixover Developments Ltd. Property advice is being provided to Castleoak by the health care division of FPD Savills and the development is being financed by Anglo Irish Bank. Due for completion in mid-2001, the development has been named Welland Meadows after the local river, through a competition run in conjunction with the local press. Castleoak says the bungalows will be finished with materials which are in keeping with local architecture, with the intention of giving the development an ambience of quality and character. Internal design is focused on facilitating independent living for frail elderly people, with flexibility to accommodate purchaser
