'Experience the lifestyle' launched at two retirement living developments in Scotland

18 October 2017

For some, downsizing from a family home to a retirement property can be a daunting and stressful process, and it can be hard to try and picture what your life might be like there, without giving it a try first – something the majority of mainstream housebuilders don’t allow you to do. 

‘Experience the Lifestyle’ is a unique scheme offered by McCarthy and Stone, which aims to get rid of the fear of moving to a new community, and let potential purchasers aged 55 and over, have a trial run in a new apartment before making an informed decision.

Retirees can spend up to two complimentary nights in a fully furnished apartment, and during their stay will be able to enjoy a continental breakfast and refreshments, and have plenty of opportunity to meet and chat with existing homeowners who have already made the move. They can also take part in any social events during their stay, which is a great way of getting involved in the community and of making new friends.

This fabulous opportunity is now available at McCarthy and Stone’s Beacon Court in Anstruther and Darroch Gate in Blairgowrie giving prospective buyers the chance to experience the style and quality of Retirement Living in two very different locations.

Lorraine Paterson, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone in Scotland, comments: “Moving to a new home can be daunting regardless of your age, so giving prospective buyers an opportunity to experience the lifestyle at a Retirement Living development is a great way for them to see for themselves if this is their perfect choice. 

“We want buyers to feel as comfortable as possible with their decision and to be excited about their next step with us.  So, I can’t think of a better way of achieving that than offering them an opportunity to be our guest.

“Our ‘Experience the Lifestyle’ apartments located in Anstruther and Blairgowrie have been hand-picked to offer prospective buyers a flavour of what it’s like to live in a Retirement Living development.  

“I hope those who believe ‘it’s not for them’ will book a two-night stay with us and leave thinking ‘when can I move in’.  With apartments in two great locations, I am looking forward to inspiring and helping even more prospective buyers make a stress-free move to Retirement Living.” 

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments are designed to offer homeowners the very best in independent living within a safe and secure environment, with the opportunity to benefit from companionship when they want it and privacy and assistance when they need it. 

Facilities at developments do vary but always include a stunning homeowners’ 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. 

All developments benefit from their very own House Manager, who will ensure the smooth running of the development, car parking via a permit scheme, a security entrance system, plus 24 hour emergency call points – for added peace of mind for both homeowners and their families.
