23 April 2014

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading retirement developer, has started construction work on 24 new one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments in Folkestone that have been designed exclusively for the over 60s. 

Apartments will be available to buy off plan from July 2014 with first occupations taking place in November 2014. The new development will be ideally situated within easy reach of the stunning Folkestone Harbour, as well as being just a short distance from all the town’s shops and amenities.

When complete, our new Retirement Living apartments in the heart of Folkestone will be low maintenance in design and will benefit from modern fittings, good security and will have a number of specialist features.”

The Folkestone development will also benefit from parking available on site, a beautiful landscaped garden at the front of the property and excellent transport links to surrounding areas and Europe via ferries and the Channel Tunnel.
