Redeveloped on the site of a former sheltered housing scheme in St Albans, Eywood House is a retirement living scheme for the over 55's built by Hill Partnership.
Eywood House provides the security and privacy of your own home, plus has the reassurance of 24-hour emergency response. Your care and support can be tailor-made to suit your needs and adapted in the future if needed.
Eywood House offers a selection of self-contained one bedroom apartments with access to a range of services including on-site care, activities and shared communal spaces such as a residents' lounge.
This exciting new building will provide an enabling environment that reflects the current understanding of complex needs of older people. The scheme will provide independent living with the added security and reassurance of 24 hour, 7 days a week emergency care should it be needed.
Eywood House offers a range of amenities and facilities on site including a communal garden and terrace which will provide an opportunity for staff and residents to meet, dine outdoors and participate in external group activities.

The site is located in the historic city of St Albans in Hertfordshire which lies approximately 19 miles north of London. The city dates back to the Iron Age and in Roman Britain was the second largest city after Londinium. The city has a number of important historic sites and buildings including St Albans Abbey and the Roman remains of Verulamium.
The site lies to the west of Sopwell House, an historic white stucco Georgian country house, now a luxury 128 bedroom hotel, country club & spa.
The building itself is located in the St Julian's area of St Albans, in the post-war built Cottonmill Estate. Eywood House has been redeveloped on the site of an old 1970's sheltered housing scheme called Betty Entwistle House on Holyrood Crescent.
Shared Ownership for the over 55's - How does it work?
Whether you are retired, planning for your future or downsizing, where you live and quality of life is important. Warburton House provides you with the privacy of your own apartment but with the sense of community.
You buy a share in your home (50% or 75%) with the remaining share owned by the Housing Provider. There is no rent to pay on a 75% purchase.
*Price shown is for a 50% share.*
In the future, you can simply sell your share for its value at the time of sale (current market valuation required) or purchase further shares in your home (up to 75%).
