William Turner Court, a new McCarthy Stone Retirement Living development on Goose Hill in Morpeth, is proving to be a roaring success, with 38 apartments already sold off-plan ahead of its opening next year. 

The success comes from an overwhelming response to its information day held last month, which showcased apartment specifications and layouts, and was a first opportunity for interested purchasers to reserve a chosen plot off-plan. 

“The level of interest has been phenomenal” says Regional Sales and Marketing Director, Liz Green of McCarthy Stone. 

“Not only is it proving incredibly popular with retirees in the local area, but also those who aspire to live there and are relocating in their retirement years.  Morpeth is a real property hot spot as it has everything you could need for the perfect retirement – fantastic river views and walks, a buzzing town centre and high street, easy transport links to Newcastle for days out – there’s something for everyone. 

“It is great that so many locals have recognised the benefits of moving to a high specification, luxury apartment where all the external maintenance is taken care of and where there is a friendly community of neighbours right on your doorstep.” 

William Turner Court will welcome its first homeowners in spring 2018 and, when complete, will comprise a stylish collection of 55 one and two bedroom luxury apartments for the over 60s. 

With apartments being quickly reserved, the award-winning housebuilder is now urging discerning retirees who are interested in downsizing to such a prime location as Morpeth, to reserve without delay, or risk disappointment. The sales office is due to officially open in December, however those looking to secure the remaining pick of the plots are asked to get in touch right away, with prices starting from £174,999 for a one bedroom apartment, and £264,999 for a two bedroom apartment.

McCarthy Stone Retirement Living developments are thoughtfully-designed exclusively for the over 60s to provide the very best in modern, independent living within a safe and secure environment. 

Facilities at William Turner Court will include a stunning homeowners’ lounge ideal for socialising with friends, an outside terrace, an on-site car park, and a stylish guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. William Turner Court will also benefit from its very own House Manager, who will take care of the smooth day-to-day running of the development; while a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points will provide added peace of mind for homeowners and their families. 

In a stunning riverside location, William Turner Court also offers homeowners unrestricted views over Morpeth. With a host of local amenities including a bustling local market held every Wednesday, and a Farmer’s Market held every Saturday, Morpeth is well equipped for those looking to make the most of independent living in a dynamic setting, with lots of activities and local organisations to be involved with.   

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