The main structure consists of a U shape building founded on strip footings and concrete floors.

Decorative moulding and large balconies are used to articulate the form of the building and to take advantage of the views.

Extensive building services, including a boiler fire sprinklers, electrical security, data, and air-conditioning are provided to create a safe and pleasant environment.

This three storey building houses 67 serviced apartments, 28 extra care units, lounges, dining rooms, kitchens, doctors surgery, hairdressers and offices.
Construction of the village was completed on time and the quality is of a very high standard, all in keeping within the village’s location. The grounds have been extensively landscaped incorporating a water feature.
