Our favourite new development in your area this month is… The Oren from Elysian in Hampstead

Not just anyone can afford such luxury, and even if they could, not just anyone would be allowed to live at The Oren in Hampstead, as this is a development with very specific selection criteria. The Oren is part of a select group of properties that are turning retirement living on its head, a block of lavish apartments, situated in the heart of leafy Hampstead, that’s run more like a private club than a retirement home. This is luxury retirement for those who refuse to grow old.

So, if you are over 65 and have the millions that it costs to live there, here are some of the facilities you could be enjoying:

  • 24-hour, 5-star hotel style concierge
  • Spa and wellness centre
  • Coffee lounge and bar
  • Full-service restaurant with private chef
  • Swimming pool
  • Gymnasium
  • Cinema
  • Private hair and beauty salon
  • Housekeeping team
  • Valet parking


The Oren consists of four apartment blocks, connected by brilliantly lit glazed walkways. The whole development is designed in a modern contemporary style that prioritises a feeling of space and luxury, with many of the apartments looking out over perfectly manicured gardens and each benefiting from either large covered balconies or private terraces.

Over and above the light, spacious, five-star feel of the place, owners Elysium have also included facilities to manage their resident’s healthcare needs. There’s a pool and gymnasium for keeping fit, treatment rooms for holistic healthcare, staff on-hand when needed to help residents, and 24-hour medical and personal care.

For style, hospitality and healthcare, The Oren is in a league of its own, claiming to have modelled itself on some of the world’s finest hotels, and from the images we’ve seen, we can certainly believe that. However, this all comes at a price. We’ve seen three apartments for sale in The Oren, ranging from a 2-bed, 2-bath 1,193 sq. ft apartment for £1,180,000 to a 3-bed, 2-bath 1,780 sq. ft apartment for £3,310,000. All are styled differently, but the quality remains the same.

With a price tag like that you’ll need to ensure that when you sell your home to move there that you achieve the best price possible. So, if you are interested in The Oren, or any other luxury retirement club, call in your local trusted builder to see what we can suggest to help you maximise the saleability and value of your home. Whether it’s a complete refurbishment or a spruce-up for sale, we’re here to help.
