The BBC TV's Antiques Expert, David Harper, joined retirees in Cleckheaton to celebrate the grand opening of McCarthy Stone’s new Retirement Living development, Brooke Dene Court, located on Sepertine Road. 

David Harper gave a presentation to discuss his life as one of TV's most prominent antiques experts and provided stories from his extensive career.

Guests were given a tour of the professionally-styled show complex and they also took a closer look at the stylish Homeowners lounge – all whilst enjoying a glass of fizz and light refreshments. Throughout the day, the McCarthy Stone sales team were on-hand to answer any questions, and to advise on how they can make moving to Brooke Dene Court even easier.  

Liz Green, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone North East, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to officially open our fabulous development in Cleckheaton. Our easy to maintain, luxurious apartments allow homeowners to enjoy their independence, with the added benefit of communal areas for socialising with neighbours. 

“We would like to say a huge thank you to David Harper for joining us and giving a thoroughly engaging presentation on his career. We would encourage anyone over the age of 60 who is considering downsizing to take a look at the development themselves, they won’t be disappointed!” 

Brooke Dene Court features a homeowners’ lounge, ideal for enjoying a catch-up with friends and neighbours; beautifully landscaped gardens, which are fully maintained by McCarthy Stone’s expert team; and a guest suite, which is available for when family members and friends come to stay. For added peace-of-mind, a House Manager is on hand to take care of the smooth-running of the development, as well as a 24 hour emergency call system should assistance be needed day or night. 

Brooke Dene Court features a collection of luxurious one and two bedroom apartments, with prices currently starting from £226,999. 

Located in the borough of Kirklees, Cleckheaton offers a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and homeowners will be able to benefit from a range of local amenities, including doctors surgeries, shops, supermarkets and a selection of restaurants, pubs and cafes. For homeowners who enjoy keeping active, Cleckheaton Town Hall is a focal point for the community hosting regular events. The local area also offers nature trails, parks and golf facilities to enjoy.   

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 for 14 years, which is every year the awards have been run.
