Anne McIntosh MP - official ground breaking ceremony in Pickering

Miss Anne McIntosh MP, the Conservative representative for Thirsk, Malton and Filey, formally marked the commencement of construction at McCarthy & Stone’s forthcoming Retirement Living development in Pickering by attending an official ground breaking ceremony.

Miss McIntosh joined McCarthy & Stone’s Karen Harrowell, to commemorate the first steps in the construction of 41 independent retirement apartments, located at the Former North Ridings Garages on Eastgate, which have been designed specifically to help those aged over 60 make the most of later life.

Miss McInstosh commented: “I am delighted to attend the groundbreaking of this exciting project. There is a growing need for such purpose built accommodation permitting independent living in secure housing. We are all living longer but want to maintain our life style."

Karen Harrowell, sales manager for McCarthy & Stone North East added: “We feel extremely honoured to have been able to welcome Miss McIntosh to our Pickering site and were delighted by her positive response to our approach to delivering lifestyles tailored to meet the needs of the over 60’s.”

Offering the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an environment specifically designed for those reaching their later years, McCarthy & Stone’s Retirement Living developments make a popular choice for downsizers who want more time in which to embrace the possibilities of later life.

Conveniently located on Eastgate, the new development will feature private parking as well as landscaped gardens. It will also be well situated, close to a range of local shops and amenities.

Facilities at the development will include a lounge for socialising, a guest suite and a laundry. A dedicated house manager will ensure the smooth running of the development and there is also a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points that provide peace of mind for both homeowners and their families. All properties will be low maintenance and energy efficient. Construction is well underway with apartments available to purchase off-plan in December 2014.
