Homeowners and staff at McCarthy Stone’s Miami House Retirement Living Plus development, on Princes Road in Chelmsford opened their doors to local retirees for a cocktail and mocktail making masterclass.


 Guests who attended the special event enjoyed a fantastic afternoon sipping a variety of mocktails and cocktails in the landscaped gardens, learning more about their favourite tipples from expert mixologist, Steve the Barman.

As well as basking in the sunshine with a glass in hand, guests were able to take a closer look at Miami House.  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.

Simon Pendlebury, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone North London, said: “Our mocktails and cocktails in the garden event was a great success. Everyone enjoyed learning more about the cocktails from Steve the Barman, who made some fantastic tipples for our homeowners and guests. 

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

Comprising a selection of one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 70 and over, Miami House provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing retirement.  

Facilities at Miami House include a stylish club lounge, ideal for socialising; beautiful landscaped gardens in which to relax; and a guest suite, which provides a comfortable stay for visiting family and friends. 

Designed to provide complete peace-of-mind, there is an Estates team on hand around the clock, along with a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points. An on-site bistro serves fresh and nutritious meals daily for those who do not wish to cook in their apartments, and domestic and personalised care packages can be tailored to suit individuals. 

Prices at Miami House currently start from £350,000 for a one-bedroom apartment, and £450,000 for a two-bedroom apartment.

Homeowners at Miami House can take advantage of the development’s close proximity to the Capital and to a wide selection of shops, landmarks and places of interest, including the Grade II listed Hylands House and the Chelmsford Museum. 

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.
