McCarthy & Stone - plan for retirement homes in Weymouth

McCarthy & Stone, the UK’s leading developer of retirement apartments, has started construction work on its new Retirement Living development in Weymouth. Located on North Quay, it will comprise a mix of 43 one and two bedroom apartments exclusively for people over the age of 60.

Those interested are being invited to register their interest now and first occupations will be taking place in summer 2015. The development is in a prominent position overlooking the Marina and is adjacent to a large supermarket. The main shopping area and local amenities are situated on Weymouth High Street, just 400 meters away from the development.

Jacqui Meenan, sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, said: “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, and starting construction of our Retirement Living development marks an exciting milestone in helping the over 60s in Weymouth 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 Retirement Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for later life. Facilities will include a shared lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated house manager will ensure the smooth running of the development and a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points provide peace of mind for both homeowners and their families. All properties will be low maintenance and energy efficient.

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