 The Crescent Brighton offers fully independent living, with one or two bedroom apartments in the heart of Brighton.

The village offers retirement living at its finest, with premium services, security, parking for residents and guests and extensive communal facilities.

Living at The Crescent Brighton means you’ll be exposed to a wonderful close-knit family of people. They value privacy as well as social engagement.

Formerly known as Rylands of Brighton, The Crescent Brighton was developed by Buxton Group Retirement.

Richard Buxton founded the company in 2000, when he was looking for accommodation for his parents in their aging years. 

He could not find something suitable in Brighton where they were living, and so developed The Crescent Brighton.

His parents lived there for many years and it is now run by Richard and his daughter Samantha Buxton.

“We believe the family business is an important point of difference in an industry with many large scale operators,” Ms Buxton said.

“We are very hands on and personally committed to adding value to the lifestyles of our clients.”

The Crescent is located just 350 metres from Church Street, it is also easily accessible for public transport, as well as being in close proximity to beautiful cafes and restaurants, specialist shops, parks and Brighton beach.

The village is also close to major supermarkets, a cinema, medical services and plenty more.

Despite the age of The Crescent, now 18 years old, the building continues to stand the test of time and is still presented as beautifully as the day it opened, including the beautifully landscaped and manicured gardens.

Buxton Group Retirement has ensured this by consistently reinvesting back into the building through regular improvement and maintenance programs for the benefit of residents. “We have just completely renovated the front of house areas creating a new, larger hospitality space including a new bar and coffee servery, new commercial kitchen to service our bistro, new and larger private dining room seating 16 (for private functions), new manager and staff offices, meeting room and new bathrooms,” Ms Buxton explained.

Unlike many other villages, The Crescent offers 7 day dining for residents and guests in the bistro, an important service to help residents feel happy and supported in a village community.

Staff manage the building 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and there is also a 24-7 emergency call system for peace of mind for residents.

Additional service packages can be curated by the management team.
