Discover the benefits of retirement at Birch Court

24 April 2017

Morriston local, Janet Roberts, has downsized to McCarthy and Stone’s Birch Court development on Sway Road; and, since settling into her new Retirement Living apartment, she has had much more time to focus on enjoying her retirement.

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments are carefully designed to offer homeowners the very best in independent living within a safe and secure environment, with the opportunity to benefit from companionship when desired, as well as privacy when needed.

Like many other retirees, Janet Roberts, aged 59, decided it was time to move to a home that allowed her to feel safe and secure, and provided many opportunities for companionship. Janet, commented: “I have lived in Morriston for over 30 years; but, with my children having flown the nest, I was living alone in a three bedroom house, which also had a large garden, so I felt the time was right to make a move.

“I only lived a minute down the road from Birch Court, so I passed it on a regular basis. After speaking to one of the residents and seeing it advertised in the local paper I knew I needed to go and take a look myself.’

It was important to Janet to stay close to family and remain in the local area. Now at the heart of the close-knit community at Birch Court, Janet explained how happy she is: “I really enjoy being part of the community here. I have always been very social and there are always other people around; it’s wonderful, with plenty of opportunities to mingle such as coffee mornings, film nights and the fish and chip suppers! I have already made great friends with the other homeowners who are also local to the area.”

Simon Mantell, Regional Managing Director for McCarthy and Stone South West, said: “Our Retirement Living developments give older people so much more than a luxury new home; they provide the opportunity to enjoy a low maintenance lifestyle which affords plenty of time to pursue the things that really matter – such as spending quality time with friends old and new. The attention to detail and quality approach we pay to each and every new development helps us to enrich lives; and we are thrilled to hear Mrs Roberts is enjoying her new home, and is making the most of being part of a community of likeminded neighbours at Birch Court.”

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments are designed for discerning retirees, to make life easier and hassle free. Each individual development includes a range of luxury, high specification apartments and amenities including a Club Lounge – which is ideal for socialising. A dedicated concierge service and access to 24 hour security features provide added peace-of-mind for homeowners and their families.

Janet continued: “I’ve wanted to live like this for many years, so as soon as the opportunity to live at Birch Court came up, I was among the first to reserve an apartment. The gardens here are the most beautiful I’ve ever seen, and I get to enjoy them without the worry of having to maintain them myself. It is just such an easy way of life and I would absolutely recommend looking to downsize to a development such as this. I am so glad I didn’t wait until I was too old, and made the move while I was younger.”

Prices at Birch Court currently start from £99,950 for a one bedroom apartment, or £128,250 for a two bedroom apartment.
