Deputy Mayor of The Borough of Elmbridge Officially Opens McCarthy And Stone’s Development in Cobham

13 July 2019

Guests joined the Deputy Mayor of the Borough of Elmbridge, Councillor Tony Popham, earlier this week to celebrate the grand opening of McCarthy and Stone’s new Retirement Living development, Holly Place, on Cobham High Street.

As McCarthy and Stone’s guest of honour, Councillor Tony Popham performed the ceremonial ribbon-cutting at the new age-exclusive development.

Local retirees who attended on the day were among the first to take a closer look at the professionally-styled show complex at Holly Place. They also had the opportunity to find out more about Retirement Living, and to meet the friendly McCarthy and Stone team while enjoying a barbecue and live music from MPR Jazz.

Visiting the development for the first time, Councillor Tony Popham commented: “It was an absolute pleasure to mark the official opening of McCarthy and Stone’s new Retirement Living development in Cobham, and to meet with homeowners and staff. It was great to see first-hand what a fantastic development Holly Place is and the many benefits it will bring to local retirees.” 

Julie Ward, National Sales Director for McCarthy and Stone, said: “We are very proud of Holly Place and it was our pleasure to showcase this superb new development with such an enjoyable event.

“Everyone had a great time raising a glass to commemorate this important milestone; and the McCarthy and Stone team would like to say thank you to Councillor Tony Popham for performing the all-important ceremonial duties.”

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments are carefully designed to enable the over 60s to maintain an active and independent lifestyle, in a safe and secure environment. Homeowners at Holly Place benefit from on-site facilities including a Club Lounge; ideal for socialising with friends; a landscaped patio terrace on which to relax; and a comfortable Guest Suite, should friends or relatives come to stay.  

Located in the heart of Surrey with easy access to London, Cobham has a bustling atmosphere and convenient transport links. Homeowners at Holly Place will benefit from being located on the High Street, surrounded by a choice of restaurants, coffee shops and retail outlets including two banks, a pharmacy and a Post Office. 

For the first time, older people in Cobham will be able to choose from a range of flexible retirement living solutions to suit them and their personal circumstances at Holly Place, whether they prefer to purchase outright, rent, or take advantage of McCarthy and Stone’s part buy, part rent option.
