Just moments away from the amenities of Wantage, and with speedy access to Oxford, national and international road, rail and air connections, The Rivus is in a peaceful but prime position. It offers a range of easy to maintain apartments and a worry-free lifestyle for the over 55s.

On Thursday 22nd June, the Deputy Mayor of Wantage will attend the launch party that offers interested buyers and their families the chance to look around the one, two and three bedroom show apartments and the many communal areas including a lovely roof terrace.

There will be guided walk-throughs of the Wellness Centre, with its infrared sauna, gym, stretch studio and treatment room, where guests can find out about treatments and classes that will be available to residents. Wellness smoothies will be available, and led mindfulness experiences for anyone who wants to participate.

The evening starts at 5pm with drinks, canapés and musical entertainment, while the official opening ceremony takes place at 6.30pm.

Buyers will be attracted to the Rivus by the lock-up-and-leave lifestyle, and the dip-in dip-out nature of a community of like-minded people. 

On site facilities include:

  • Internal courtyard, roof terrace and indoor communal socialising areas.
  • Car Club
  • Guest suite available for residents to book for family and friends.
  • High-speed broadband
  • Lift to all floors
  • 24hr personal emergency alarm service

Prices from £265,000

The event is on Thursday 22 June, 5.30 – 8pm
