Enjoy the delights of cheese and wine at Saxon Grange

27 November 2013

McCarthy & Stone is inviting locals to a festive cheese and wine tasting session at its popular Saxon Grange development on Friday 6th December.

Visitors are invited to join residents at the event taking place from 1pm to 3pm where they will be able to sample a variety of wines and cheeses and enjoy a tour of the beautiful show complex and communal facilities.

Gill Sabin, Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone Midlands, said: “Our cheese and wine event is not only an opportunity for people to view our stunning Saxon Grange development in a relaxed atmosphere, but also to mingle with our residents and enjoy the company of like minded people.

“Our Saxon Grange development has been hugely popular with locals in the area looking for a safe and secure environment that still offers them independence in their later years. I would encourage anyone thinking about downsizing to come along to our event and see what life in a McCarthy & Stone development is really like.”

McCarthy & Stone is currently selling two bedroom Later Living apartments exclusively for the over 60s at Saxon Grange. The development is already over 50% sold and prices start from £299,950.

The development has been built in natural Cotswold stone to blend in with the traditional surroundings. The apartments have been carefully designed and include high specification features including granite worktops, en suite bathrooms, electric under floor heating and walk-in wardrobes.

McCarthy & Stone’s Later Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for later life. Facilities include a shared lounge, guest suite, and a lift. A dedicated house manager ensures the smooth running of the development and a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points provide peace of mind for both purchasers and their families. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient.

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