Life in the Workhouse

A fully working 1950s Wurlitzer jukebox and a Coca-Cola fridge are just two pieces of the memorabilia which arrived at St Luke’s Court in Marlborough last year when Anita and Chris Lowe and Teddy the Cavachon, moved into one of the apartments in the former Victorian workhouse. Chris enjoys collecting memorabilia; the apartment is testament to his eye for a treasure and has been redecorated in stunning style.

He also has a collection of prestige cars including a Jaguar and an Aston Martin. Anita spends much of her time running her company, Events and Venues International. The couple enjoy the sense of community at St Luke’s and make good use of the lock-up-and-leave service, as they spend time away in their other homes.

“We love it, it is such a friendly family, we can keep ourselves to ourselves when we want to and we can have company when we want it. We have had a couple of drinks parties – that’s been great fun”
