Construction Starts on Retirement Living Development in Maldon

10 April 2015

Lawrence Place - Retirement Living Maldon

McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, is delighted to announce that construction work has started on 29 privately owned Retirement Living apartments in Maldon.

Comprising a mix of stylish one and two bedroom apartments, the new development has been designed exclusively for the over 60s, with apartments available to buy off plan at the beginning of the autumn 2015.

Celebrating the history of the town, the new development on Whitehorse Lane will officially be named Lawrence Place, in recognition of Lawrence Washington. A former resident of Maldon and vicar of Purleigh in 1662, Lawrence Washington was the great great grandfather of George Washington, the first president of the United States of America.

Elaine Stratford, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone, explains: “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling. When complete, our new Retirement Living apartments in the heart of Maldon will be low maintenance in design and will benefit from modern fittings, good security and will have a number of specialist features.

“It was also important to us that we choose a name that would have meaning to the local area, and what better to have one that reflects the long history of Maldon.”

Facilities at Lawrence Place will include a stunning homeowners’ club lounge, ideal for socialising with friends, beautifully landscaped gardens in which to relax and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. The development will also benefit from its very own Concierge, who will ensure the smooth running of the development, a security entrance system, plus 24 hour emergency call points – for added peace of mind for both homeowners and their families.

Maldon is a thriving community offering a host of a leisure activities and amenities, with an array of shops and services on the doorstep. Lawrence Place is ideally located just a stone’s throw away from the popular Longfield Park and Recreation Ground, perfect for countryside strolls or afternoons in the park with grandchildren. The development also offers excellent bus links, whilst nearby Chelmsford, South Woodam Ferrers, Witham and Colchester are just a short drive away.
