McCarthy Stone, the UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, has unveiled the name for its upcoming Retirement Living Plus development in Buxton as Devonshire Place.

The developer has chosen to name the site on Station Road in tribute to the Dukes of Devonshire, who have been closely involved with the Buxton area since 1780, when the 5th Duke used the profits from his copper mines to develop the town as a Spa in the style of Bath.

Fiona Brooks, Divisional Sales Director at McCarthy Stone, commented: “As progress continues at the site in Buxton, we’re delighted to be able to reveal the name for our Retirement Living Plus development and recognise the Dukes of Devonshire who helped grow the importance of the Buxton area throughout the late 18th Century, and who have already inspired much of the local architecture.

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

Once complete, Devonshire Place will comprise of 33 one-bedroom and 37 two-bedroom apartments with prices set to be released in the summer. With high interest in the development, retirees are encouraged to register for updates from McCarthy Stone to avoid disappointment.

The development will feature a range of bespoke care and support packages, as well as considered on-site touches. For those who prefer a lower maintenance lifestyle in their home, McCarthy Stone provide support with household chores such as cleaning, running errands and grocery shopping. Buxton Retirees can be assured that they will have control over the level of assistance that they may need, meaning that they can live with independence and comfort.

The development will feature a communal lounge which opens onto a seated patio area and garden, ideal for enjoying a catch-up with friends and neighbours; and a guest suite, which will be available for when family members and friends come to stay. An on-site bistro will provide residents with freshly prepared daily meals, ideal for those who prefer not to cook or simply want to try something different.

For added peace-of-mind, an Estates Manager will be on hand to take care of the smooth-running of the development, as well as a 24 hour emergency call system should assistance be needed day or night.

Surrounded by picturesque architecture and greenery, this development in Buxton is an ideal retreat for those who are looking to begin the next stage of their retirement in one of Britain’s leading spa towns. Devonshire Place will be located near to Buxton railway station, making it ideal for visiting family, friends and residents who like to travel without driving. Its central location also means that a wealth of shops, supermarkets and amenities close by.

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.
