Carpenders Care Home is the latest development to be added to the Frontier Estates portfolio, with the scheme developed in conjunction with Baycroft Care Homes.

The new build scheme comprises of 78 bedrooms with en-suite facilities for the elderly – specifically for nursing and dementia care, with associated amenities that include; car parking and a private landscaped residents garden.

On the site of a former dairy, the design takes cues from the existing agricultural vernacular to reminisce a series of barns and farm buildings. The scheme utilises glazed links, horizontal timber boarding and zinc dormers to provide a stunning design.
