The UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, McCarthy Stone, has announced the name of its new Retirement Living development in Redditch.

Located on Clive Road, the new development of 45 luxury one and two bedroom age-exclusive apartments has been officially named Milward Place in recognition of Henry Milward and Sons, the first manufacturer of needles in Redditch. As the business grew, Henry Milward and Sons helped put Redditch on the map – the town is now recognised as the hub of the needle industry in the UK.

Clare Bright, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone West Midlands, said: “We wanted to choose a name for our new development that was memorable, and would resonate with Redditch residents and future McCarthy Stone homeowners.

“We are looking forward to becoming an integrated part of the Redditch community, and we believe that our development will play a real part in helping to bring friends and family together in later life, something we feel is important and will bring lots of positive benefits to the area.”

When the build programme is complete in Spring 2019, Milward Place will comprise a selection of luxury one and two-bedroom apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over. With construction now well underway, an artist’s impression has been released to show how the development will look when it is build complete.

The forthcoming Redditch development will feature a stunning homeowners’ lounge, ideal for socialising with friends; beautifully landscaped gardens; an on-site car park; and a convenient guest suite, should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. A House Manager will take care of the smooth day-to-day running of the development; while a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind for homeowners.

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 13 years’ running. McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 13 years, which is every year the awards have been run.
