Gaunt Francis Architects is thrilled to have received planning permission for the extension of our award-winning Audley Chalfont Dene Care Community.
Our proposals for the site comprises an additional 58 new units, which will seek to maintain the openness of the green-belt, reflect the vernacular architecture of the locality, and build on the success and high quality established at Chalfont Dene.
In the heart of the scheme we have designed a new “village hall” to serve both the retirement village residents and the wider community in Chalfont St. Peter. The Community Hall will serve as a multi-function flexible space; supplemented by store, a bar and kitchenette and ancillary accommodation, it will also contain a studio which will be used for arts and crafts activities.
Chalfont Dene retirement village lies close to Buckinghamshire’s Chiltern Hills within Chalfont St. Peter. The existing village is built in the style of the local Arts and Crafts movement and is home to 84 luxury cottages and apartments, as well as the Lutyens inspired Main House facilities including the Health and Well-being spa and Bar and Restaurant.
