The new housing development launches this week at the site of the historic Old Gaol in Abingdon-on-Thames, bringing contemporary waterside living to the town.
The first development of its kind in Abingdon, phase one of the Old Gaol will offer accommodation across 43 properties. Subsequent phases will include a restaurant and cafe quarter. With private gardens and public spaces, the Old Gaol will provide attractive and varied living space, from the 17th century splendour of Twickenham House and the former prison to the new build contemporary apartment buildings with riverside moorings.
The first phase of the scheme, which launches to the market this week is made up of 3 one-bed, 36 two-bed and 4 three-bedroom apartments.
Karen Mole from Savills who is marketing the property jointly with Thomas Merrifield Estate Agents, comments, "The developer Cranbourne, a local family run company, has made sure that the Old Gaol retains its unique characteristics while catering superbly for modern living. It is achieving something really quite remarkable by bringing the character of the town and historic Old Gaol building together with sustainable, modern apartments, that wouldn't look out of place in a city waterside development.
In our view, the scheme will represent a new 'quarter' for the town, with public and private gardens, restaurants, and a mooring for leisure trips, private boats and commuting. Residents will benefit from a private gym, a management office on site and secure underground parking, all within just five minutes walk of the town centre."
