Homeowners and staff at McCarthy Stone’s Lewis House Retirement Living development on Beulah Hill in Upper Norwood, opened their doors to local retirees for live jazz music and cocktails.

Guests who attended the special event enjoyed a fantastic afternoon sipping a variety of cocktails in the social lounge, while also enjoying live entertainment, provided by MPR Jazz.

Guests were able to take a closer look at Lewis House as the event provided the opportunity to take a tour of the show complex, meet the McCarthy Stone team, and chat with retirees who are already living at the development.

Kevin Sims, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone South East, said: “Our cocktails afternoon event was a great success. Everyone enjoyed learning more about the cocktails from The Great Mobile Bar Company, and MPR Jazz put on a fantastic performance for our homeowners and guests. 

“The event was a good chance for us to showcase the wide variety of activities we host here at Lewis House, and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development.” 

Comprising a selection of 26 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over, Lewis House provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing retirement.  

The shared lounge is perfect for socialising with new neighbours and the landscaped gardens are ideal for making the most of the warmer days ahead.  Homeowners can feel secure in the knowledge that the House Manager is on hand to provide any help or support should they need it; and that friends and family can stay over whenever they choose in the development’s comfortable guest suite.  Security entrance systems and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind for homeowners and their families.

Ideally located in the heart of Upper Norwood, Lewis House is within easy reach of all the town’s amenities, including supermarkets and shops.  Future homeowners will also benefit from excellent public transport links to the heart of London, which is just seven miles away.

Prices at Lewis House currently start from £399,950 for a one bedroom apartment and from £490,000 for a two bedroom apartment. 

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade, which is every year the awards have been run.
