Housebuilder Larkfleet Homes (, part of the Larkfleet Group (, is holding a special open weekend at its Spinney House development in Yaxley, Cambridgeshire, for those interested in downsizing from their current property.

Spinney House is a development built especially for people over 55 years of age and offers high quality properties with all external maintenance taken care of, as well as excellent transport links to surrounding towns and cities.

On Saturday 31 August and Sunday 1 September, Larkfleet staff will be on hand at Spinney House from 10:00 in the morning to 17:00 in the afternoon to give guided tours of the development and talk visitors through the financial and social benefits downsizing can offer. There is no need to book in advance – interested visitors are very welcome to just turn up on the day.

Information on Larkfleet’s popular assisted move and part exchange options also will be available for potential buyers.

All those who attend the open weekend in Yaxley will get free tickets to a musical event at The Croft, another of Larkfleet’s over 55s developments in Bourne, Lincolnshire, on 14 September. The event will include a Q&A session from music legend Kiki Dee and a musical performance from local Motown and soul band, Motor City Vipers.

Spinney House comprises high-quality, modern one and two-bedroom apartments and boasts quiet, attractive grounds complete with outside patio and seating areas. There are currently only two properties left for sale on the development.

Homeowners Mr and Mrs Harnick are among those reaping the rewards of moving to Spinney House in order to ‘downsize’ to a smaller property.
Their previous property – a three bedroom semi detached house with a large garden – meant a lot of time and effort was being spent on exterior maintenance and general upkeep.
The Harnick’s spacious new two-bedroom duplex apartment at Spinney House boasts a modern open plan lounge and dining area with an adjoining kitchen and a downstairs WC.

The grounds of Spinney House include plenty of existing mature trees and shared allotments and cycle storage. Residents are also able enjoy the mature gardens surrounding the development, without the added responsibility of maintenance.

Martin Harnick commented: “The nature of the apartments at Spinney House makes them ideal for homebuyers like ourselves, who were looking to ‘downsize’ without compromising on quality.

“There is a lovely community in Yaxley and we are delighted to have found somewhere perfect for us in the village so we are still close to friends and family.”

Yaxley is the perfect location for those who prefer rural living but enjoy easy access to city amenities. It is located close the A1, providing excellent transport links. It is also only a short drive or bus ride away from Peterborough that boasts a large shopping centre, cathedral, cinemas, theatres and many restaurants.

Larkfleet managing director Karl Hick commented: “The development is built to a very high standard and all apartments are well-sized for comfortable living. The Spinney House apartments provide much needed age-exclusive housing in the area and have very proved popular with homebuyers.”
