Situated close to local amenities, Old Shenfield Place is a lovingly renovated seventeenth century building, registered for thirty-one older people and equipped to support effective care packages that suit personal needs and lifestyles.
Old Shenfield Place' is a Grade II listed building, originally constructed around 1685. It was designed by Robert Hooke, a contemporary of Sir Christopher Wren. Over the years it has seen many alterations and additions, all sympathetic to the original design. Its gracious and lofty aspects provide spacious, airy dayrooms and communal areas, offering the quality facilities that our discerning residents have come to expect.
The landscaped gardens provide interesting walks and seating areas. In addition, residents can relax alongside our well-stocked fishpond. Visitor car parking is available.
Old Shenfield Place offers single and twin room options and there are some bed-sits available for the resident who requires that little extra space. Most rooms have en suite facilities, but those without are furnished with vanity units and bathrooms are adjacent. All rooms have adequate power points and a telephone point for personal use. Remote controlled TV is provided. All rooms are carpeted, tastefully furnished and decorated to a high standard, although residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with their own possessions if they so desire. The home also has its own hairdressing room.
