Cutting the ribbon is the icing on the (Dundee) cake
Dundee House, Lilyford’s award-winning development of sixteen 1 and 2 bedroom apartments offering stylish town-centre living for later life, was officially opened on Wednesday 4th November.
Ribbon-cutting honours went to Liz Woods (née Scott), whose father built the commercial bakery that once stood on the site – the inspiration for the Dundee House name. The family’s bakery was responsible for supplying Sainsbury’s with not only Christmas cakes but also… Dundee cakes! Liz has wonderful childhood recollections of decorating the Dundee cakes with flaked almonds and of the weekly arrivals of lorry-loads of fruit and tankers filled with liquid chocolate.
Also attending were Carol Lintott (Chairman, Midhurst Town Council) and Michael Scammell (SDNPA Conservation Officer) and Midhurst’s Town Crier, John Travers, was on hand to announce the official opening.
Maurice Ormerod, Lilyford’s CEO and Founder, said,
“Dundee House represents a step change in the concept of homes for later life. It’s about like-minded individuals living life to the full, enjoying the company of others at a similar life stage and making the most of their proximity to all the amenities of a thriving market town. We’ve created stylish, spacious apartments that work for modern living, yet have all the conveniences we depend on as we grow older.”
Making sure Dundee House fits seamlessly into the Midhurst street scene was always really important to Lilyford who were delighted to receive this comment from Gordon McAra, District Councillor for Midhurst:
“The new development makes an important addition to the townscape of Midhurst. Its build quality and design give a strong and prominent anchor in a quite sensitive part of the town. Lilyford should be congratulated for this development.”
