Auriens is a luxury lifestyle and healthcare-orientated later life residence, located on Dovehouse Street, a stone’s throw from the King’s Road in the heart of Chelsea.
Offering the ultimate in flexibility, one and two bedroom apartments at Auriens are now available to rent, benefitting those looking for more freedom from their living arrangements.
A unique new product to the luxury retirement sector, the Lease for Life at Auriens provides complete security, with the right to stay living at Auriens for as long as desired.
Combining the style and sophistication of an exclusive boutique hotel, the ambiance of a private members club and superlative care, Auriens challenges the conventions of the later life living category, offering a unique brand of vintage vitality for those looking to ‘downsize to upgrade’.
With 55 apartments, Auriens offers a wide range of amenities, including around-the-clock care as and when required. Care is provided by Draycott Nursing, which has a twenty-year heritage caring for the capital’s most high-profile clientele, with services designed to enable residents to remain independent for longer.
There will be a world-class on-site restaurant, bar and wine cellar led by consultant Seb Fogg, who has helped a number of high profile restaurants worldwide achieve their vision.
Additional features include a 24-hour concierge, room service, swimming pool, spa, gym, valet service, pet parlour, cinema and gardens designed by RHS Chelsea Flower Show multiple award-winning Andy Sturgeon.
Interiors are crafted by Richmond International, the design team behind The Langham Hotel and The Beaumont Hotel. Working in collaboration with the Royal College of Art and internationally renowned healthcare professionals, every detail is informed by science, bringing style and substance together in this unique development.
The development’s show suite Auriens Studio showcases examples of the cutting-edge technology available to residents, from motorised kitchen cabinets to Nobel Prize-winning circadian lighting.
Auriens co-founder and property developer Johnny Sandelson has spent years bringing his vision to life, after failing to find suitable accommodation when his own parents retired.
Johnny Sandelson says: “Downsizing is a much more exciting prospect when you can enjoy the service of a luxury hotel, the style of a private members’ club and the reassurance of the very best healthcare from Draycott Nursing & Care, and that’s what we’re creating at Auriens. Now it’s even easier to downsize with our new rental model, available to all residents. The demands of today’s later lifers are changing – they’re increasingly looking for freedom and flexibility without compromising on quality and we see this as something to celebrate and encourage. Our new Lease for Life model responds directly to these demands, providing further security and reassurance to our residents and their families.
Auriens plans to launch in more locations, in key cities both in London and abroad. Backed by South African real estate fund, Zenprop, Auriens Chelsea is just the beginning.
Johnny Sandelson continues: “At Auriens we want to change perceptions of later life, offering our customers the service of a luxury hotel, the care of a Swiss medical clinic, and style of a private member’s club.”
