“For those wanting to downsize into a smaller property, retirement villages allow them to make the most of their independence with the knowledge care is there should they need it.
“We need more aspirational retirement properties as our population ages, and they should be homes their owners can be proud of.”
The village welcomed its first owners in December following the completion of the first phase of development.
Properties in phase two are now available to view, offering a range of one, two and three-bedroom apartments and cottages.
Dr Fox praised the development.
He said: “This is truly a phenomenal facility, a beacon for the type of care we want to have in North Somerset.
“It is not simply about being older, it is about not noticing you are older because of all the opportunities to have a very fulfilling lifestyle, which is what is provided here.
“I am amazed at the quality of the village, and it has brought a jewel into this part of the country.
“The dedication, the quality of the interiors and the artwork is a real testament to all those who have been involved, and I would like to welcome Nick and the Audley team to North Somerset.
“I’m sure the new property owners will be very happy living here.”
