Retirees in Darlington are invited to celebrate the grand opening of McCarthy Stone’s new Retirement Living development, Swinden Court, on Wednesday 19th June.

From 1pm until 4pm, guests will be invited to take a tour of the professionally-styled show complex on Trinity Road; and they will also have the opportunity to take a closer look at the contemporary homeowners’ lounge and guest suite – all whilst enjoying a glass of fizz.  Throughout the day, the McCarthy Stone sales team will be on-hand to answer any questions, and to advise on how they can make moving to Swinden Court even easier.

Officially opening the development is special guest, David Harper, who will be making a presentation at 1pm to discuss his life as one of TV's most prominent antiques experts and giving some of his own tips on how to spot a real collectable.

Liz Green, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone North East, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to officially open our latest Retirement Living development in Darlington. The development will provide retirees with the freedom of living independently, while having the reassurance of support on hand if needed. We look forward to opening the doors and welcoming attendees on Wednesday 19th June so they can see for themselves what makes this development so unique and special.”

Swinden Court features a homeowners’ lounge, ideal for enjoying a catch-up with friends and neighbours; beautifully landscaped gardens, which are fully maintained by McCarthy Stone’s expert team; and a guest suite, which is available for when family members and friends come to stay. For added peace-of-mind, a House Manager is 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.

Swinden Court features a collection of luxurious one and two bedroom apartments, with prices currently starting from £169,999.

Located in the historic market town of Darlington, Swinden Court is the ideal option for those seeking accommodation in the beautiful area of County Durham. Situated in the prestigious West End, close to the town centre, it is the perfect choice for retirees who want the hustle and bustle of urban living. The town centre features an extensive range of shops, eateries and other amenities just half a mile away from the development, while the leafy Stanhope Park is right on the doorstep.

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