South East - Coming Soon... Later Living in Storrington

14 August 2012

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s market leader in retirement living, has been given the go-ahead to develop an attractive collection of 31 Later Living apartments in Foxmead, Storrington.

The one and two bedroom properties, designed specifically for those who want to enjoy the independence of retirement in a low-maintenance and secure environment, will be situated on Meadowside, only a short distance from the heart of Storrington town centre.

Sharon Callcut, regional marketing manager for McCarthy & Stone commented:

“We’re thrilled to be adding to our property portfolio in West Sussex by introducing the McCarthy & Stone lifestyle to Storrington. As specialists in this area, we understand what our customers want from their retirement. What we offer them is the chance to retain their independence whilst having the peace of mind of additional security, low-maintenance living and companionship.”


With over 30 years’ experience in the later living sector, McCarthy & Stone currently has nearly 150 selling developments across the UK, each of which is designed to promote an active and independent lifestyle for those aged over 60.

All new apartments at the Foxmead site will deliver a number of thoughtful features designed to make the home more comfortable and manageable, including a 24-hour personal emergency call service, electrical sockets at a raised height to reduce bending, illuminated light switches and energy efficient heating.

Each will have a light and airy open plan lounge and dining room adjoined by a well appointed fitted kitchen, a modern bathroom with built-in vanity unit, double glazed windows and energy efficient heating throughout. All double bedrooms are to include fitted wardrobes, a telephone point and TV aerial socket for added convenience.

Landscaped communal gardens will provide the perfect place for outdoor entertaining, while a central resident’s lounge will offer the opportunity to relax and socialise with fellow residents, friends or family.

A dedicated guest suite is to be provided for the comfort of visiting loved-ones and a secure camera entry system will offer peace of mind for both residents and their families.
