The UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, McCarthy Stone, has announced its Llanthony Place Retirement Living Plus development in Gloucester is proving to be a roaring success, with 30% of the apartments now sold. 

The development which is currently under construction on St. Ann Way will comprise of 55 privately-owned Retirement Living Plus apartments, aimed exclusively at those aged 70 and over.  With first occupants expected in February, the development is proving popular with retirees who are keen to explore the many benefits of downsizing in Gloucester.

Samantha Watkins, Divisional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone, said: “It’s fantastic to see so many people recognising the benefits of independent, low maintenance living and who have subsequently started planning to live their retirement to the full at Llanthony Place.

“Due to the high levels of interest time is now running out for those interested in joining this new community, and I would urge prospective homebuyers to get in touch as soon as possible, to avoid disappointment.”

All properties will feature modern interiors including a stylish master bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, and spacious living and dining area. 

Once complete, Llanthony Place will feature an on-site bistro, a communal lounge which is ideal for socialising with friends and new neighbours, beautifully landscaped gardens in which to relax, and a convenient guest suite should friends or relatives wish to stay. 

McCarthy Stone’s Retirement Living Plus developments offer retirees the opportunity to maintain an independent lifestyle, while having access to tailored domestic and personal assistance packages to help them manage their day-to-day lives. An Estates Manager is on hand to provide any help or support for residents, should they need it.

The neighbouring collection of one and two-bedroom Retirement Living apartments at Scudamore Place will be available to reserve off plan in March 2020. Designed to suit the over 60s, the development will feature secure entrance systems and 24-hour emergency call points to provide added peace-of-mind; and a House Manager will take care of the running of the development. 

Scudamore Place and Llanthony Place are located in the centre of the busy city of Gloucester yet on the doorstep of the Cotswolds, offering all of the benefits of city living with extensive countryside appeal. Sitting right at the centre of one of the city’s most popular areas, The Quays is a particular favourite for visitors and locals, offering an eclectic mix of museums, waterside eateries, bars and shops, as well as a wealth of independent and national retailers.
