Retirement bungalows and apartments now available to buy off-plan

This new retirement community offers 68 apartments, 22 bungalows and 10 chalet bungalows, all specifically designed for the over 65s. These retirement properties are offered for either outright sale and Shared Ownership and many are now for sale off-plan. The bungalow show suite opens on the 3rd of May with the apartment show suite opening in June and we plan to welcome our first homeowners into this new retirement village in Dorset in the autumn.

What makes this Dorset retirement village special?

McCarthy Stone has other retirement villages offering a mix of apartments and bungalows, but the Wimborne development is one of our largest and the first one to offer bespoke domestic and care options to everyone in the community. This retirement village provides all of the services and benefits of our Retirement Living PLUS developments with extensive community facilities, including a large homeowners’ lounge and bistro serving fresh seasonal food plus a multi-function room, all surrounding a ‘village green’.

Brendon O’Neill, Divisional Managing Director for McCarthy Stone’s Southern region, says, “Retirement communities free up larger homes for families and deliver significant economic benefits. However, supply simply isn’t keeping up with demand – there’s 12.5 million people aged 65 and over in the UK, and not enough suitable options for them to move to when they need more help and support. We’re therefore delighted to see the progress of our new retirement village in Dorset and provide much-needed housing and care options for older people in the area. We look forward to seeing its benefits ripple out into the local community.”
