Local people across Maidenhead joined the leader of Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council, Councillor Simon Dudley, to celebrate the grand opening of the brand new show complex at McCarthy and Stone’s Elgar Place Retirement Living development on Bridge Avenue.

Councillor Dudley joined guests at  Elgar Place to perform the ceremonial ribbon-cutting at the new development. The event was an opportunity for those interested in Retirement Living in Maidenhead to meet the friendly McCarthy and Stone team and enjoy a tour of the luxury surroundings.  

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments are carefully designed to enable the over 60s maintain an active and independent lifestyle, in a safe and secure environment. 

The leader of Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead Council, Councillor Simon Dudley, said: “It was a pleasure to officially open the show complex and to see first-hand the lifestyle Maidenhead retires can enjoy at Elgar Place. Living independently and securely is extremely important; and, with a growing number of people reaching retirement age, I’m delighted developments such as this are being built to provide older people in Maidenhead with a number of options to make the most of their retirement years.”

Georgina Akers, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone, said: “We are very proud of our latest Maidenhead development, and it was our pleasure to unveil the show complex and open the doors to Elgar Place with an enjoyable event.  Everyone had a great time raising a glass to commemorate this latest milestone; and the McCarthy and Stone team would like to say a special thank you to Councillor Simon Dudley for performing the all-important ceremonial duties.”

Elgar Place features a beautiful patio terrace where homeowners can relax; and a convenient guest suite, should they wish to have friends or relatives to say. A dedicated House Manager will take care of the smooth running of the development, while a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points will provide added peace-of-mind.

Prices at Elgar Place currently start from £345,950 for a one bedroom apartment and from £449,950 for a two-bedroom apartment.

Set in a prominent location, Elgar Place is in close proximity to a fantastic range of local amenities, including a Waitrose supermarket and the local high street, which has an array of cafes and shops. For those who wish to travel further afield, the development offers easy access to Windsor, Reading and Henley-on-Thames.
