Construction starts in Taunton

14 March 2013

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading retirement property builder, has started construction work on 58 new Assisted Living properties in Taunton. The new development, located on Mount Street, will comprise a mix of one and two bedroom privately owned apartments exclusively for the over 70s. 

Apartments at the Assisted Living development will be available to buy off plan from Autumn 2013 with first occupations taking place in Spring 2014. The new development will be adjacent to Vivary Park and close to Taunton town centre and the Orchard shopping arcade.

Lorena Brown, national sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, commented: “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, and starting construction of our Assisted Living development marks an exciting milestone in helping the over 70s in Taunton make the most of later life. When complete, the apartments will be low maintenance in design and will benefit from modern fittings, good security and will have a number of specialist features.”

With over 35 years of experience, McCarthy & Stone has become Britain’s leading provider of retirement apartments, having built more than 45,000 apartments in 1,000 different schemes.

McCarthy & Stone’s Assisted Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for the over 70s. In addition, they offer a helping hand through flexible care and support packages, including domestic assistance, that make life that little bit easier.

Facilities will include a shared lounge, an on-site restaurant, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated estate manager ensures the smooth running of the development and staff are on site 24 hours a day. There is also a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points to provide peace of mind for both purchasers and their families. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient.

In addition to offering age exclusive apartments, the retirement property developer also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.
