The UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, McCarthy Stone,has officially announced the name of its latest Retirement Living development in Abergavenny as Plas Elyrch.


The name, which means “Swan’s Hall” in Welsh, pays tribute to the site of the development, formerly known as Swan Meadow.


Once complete, Plas Elyrchwill provide everything the over 60s could want for an enjoyable and independent retirement. The development is just a three-minute walk from Abergavenny High Street with its range of supermarkets, shops, cafes and restaurants, as well as being ideally located for travel further afield with both the train station and bus station within just one mile.


Samantha Watkins, Deputy Divisional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy Stone South, said: “The decision to call our development Plas Elyrch in honour of the site’s former name is a reflection of our commitment to provide high quality, purpose-built properties for local retirees as well as contributing to the positive legacies within the communities we choose to build. We are excited to be part of Abergavenny’s future and honoured to carry a part of its past with us by paying tribute to Swan Meadow.”


The Retirement Living development will feature a communal lounge, ideal for socialising with friends; landscaped gardens; and a convenient guest suite, should residents have friends or relatives to stay.


Samantha continued: “We are looking forward to welcoming our first residents at Plas Elyrch, with apartments now available to buy off plan. Early birds will benefit from purchasing off-plan by having the pick of all the available plots, so we encourage anyone who is interested in finding out more to register their interest now.”


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