The UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, McCarthy Stone, has officially announced the name of its new Retirement Living development on Monkfield Lane - Uplands Place. This name was chosen to pay homage to Cambourne’s location on the clay uplands west of Cambridge.


Samantha Watkins, Deputy Divisional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy Stone Midlands, said: “We are really proud to reveal the name of our new development, paying tribute to the rich local history of the area. We can’t wait to confirm more details about the development and start to welcome our residents towards the end of 2020."


Apartments at Uplands Place Retirement Living development will be fitted to the highest specification and include modern kitchens with integrated appliances, spacious open-plan living areas and stylish en-suite bathrooms. Selected properties will also benefit from balconies.


Residents will also have access to a stunning roof terrace and communal sky lounge, where they will be able to take in expansive views over Cambourne. There will also be four penthouse apartments available, each with its own private terrace.


Situated in a prominent town centre location, the Cambourne development will offer a wealth of amenities on the doorstep. A parade of retail shops can be found immediately opposite the development, a library, pharmacy, pub, cafes and restaurants nearby, with a large supermarket and Fitness Centre within walking distance.


Additional benefits include an experienced House Manager who will oversee the day-to-day running of the development and 24-hour emergency call systems for added peace-of-mind.


Apartments are expected to go on sale in April 2020, with the first residents collecting their keys in October 2020. There will also be various flexible retirement living solutions available, which include the option to purchase outright, rent, or part buy, part rent.
