The Croft (, an age-exclusive community in Bourne for those aged 55 years and over, is hosting a special Mother’s Day treat for all visitors who bring their mothers to the development on Sunday 10 March.

A refurbished historic manor house located on site – the resident ‘hub’ of the new community – will provide a relaxing place for visitors to enjoy a complimentary cream cake and a glass of champagne.

For this special event, Larkfleet is welcoming all those whose parents may be interested in ‘downsizing’ and purchasing an age-exclusive property, as well as the parents themselves, to visit The Croft on Mothering Sunday (10 March) to enjoy this ‘no obligation’ treat.

The Croft, developed by Larkfleet Homes ( and Keystone Developments (, encourages independent lifestyles and offers modern and stylish properties to suit its residents’ needs.

The Croft consists of 68 one and two-bedroom bungalows and two and three-bedroom chalets arranged around attractively landscaped courtyards. The renovated manor house also includes a two-bedroom apartment.

The Croft is being marketed as not only a place to live but as a community of like-minded people who enjoy a lifestyle full of possibilities. Homeowners at The Croft will be able to live the life they want to lead, in a secure and caring environment.

As The Croft is right in the centre of Bourne, many local amenities including a local supermarket, a doctor’s surgery and a bus stop are only a short walk away, as are many shops and restaurants.

Larkfleet understands that different homebuyers’ financial circumstances are varied so it has developed a range of finance schemes and options which it can tailor to suit individual buyers.

For example, if purchasers need help to sell their existing property, Larkfleet, as part of its ‘assisted move scheme’ will provide valuations for their home from two local estate agents. When the current market value is agreed, Larkfleet then manages the process of selling the existing home, right through to exchange of contracts – including liaising with the agents, advertising and negotiating with prospective purchasers. On completion of the sale of the existing home and the purchase of a new home at The Croft, Larkfleet will also pay the estate agents’ fees.

Some homebuyers need a little extra help in order to buy a property. Larkfleet’s independent financial advisors and solicitors will work with buyers in arranging the purchase in the most economical and tax-efficient way.

In addition, on selected plots at The Croft, homebuyers can agree to pay only a percentage of the purchase price and the remaining amount is then provided as an interest-free equity loan by Larkfleet, only repayable when the property is sold.

Karl Hick, managing director of Larkfleet Homes, said: “The Croft offers enjoyable community living that allows residents to embrace their interests and hobbies. I would urge anyone in the Bourne area who knows someone who may be interested in age-exclusive housing – or is interested in this type of housing themselves – to visit The Croft and find out what the sales team can offer them in terms of incentive schemes. You never know, you may find your ideal new property is less expensive than you think.”
