Information Days for Newport, Isle of Wight

21 September 2012

The UK’s leading retirement developer, McCarthy & Stone, is holding a series of special information days to offer anyone over the age of 70 the opportunity to find out more about its forthcoming Assisted Living development in Newport, Isle of Wight.

With construction already well underway at the site on Petticoat Lane, McCarthy & Stone is inviting interested parties to attend one of a series of events taking place on Thursday 27th September, Thursday 25th October and Wednesday 21st November at The Riverside Centre on The Quay in Newport.

Between 10.30am and 3.30pm, visitors will be able to hear all about the plans for the new development ahead of its completion next summer, find out about the many benefits of Assisted Living and speak to a dedicated team of professional advisors about the properties and lifestyle on offer.

Interested parties can also find out about McCarthy & Stone’s Moving Experience package, where the purchaser can have the cost of estate agent and solicitors’ fees covered by the retirement developer.  And, in order to help with the day of the move, a free de-cluttering and removal service can be arranged, which includes packing and unpacking belongings. 

Aileen King, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, explained: “We understand that the decision to move in later life can be a difficult one, not only for purchasers themselves, but also for their families. At McCarthy & Stone, we aim to make the buying process as smooth and stress-free as possible.

“By attending one of our events at The Riverside Centre, visitors will be able to meet with our advisors and discuss the options available to help making moving a reality. It will also provide a great opportunity for guests to take a look at what life at Newport could be like, and we urge anyone interested to pop along and see us on the day.”

Each of the 58 properties at Newport will be fully wheelchair accessible throughout and will offer a secure and low maintenance living environment.

All will come complete with a light and airy open plan lounge and dining room, adjoining a well appointed kitchen comprising modern fitted units, a built in oven and hob plus a fridge freezer.  There will also be electrically operated windows for ease of use.

Homeowners will also be able to benefit from a communal homeowners’ lounge, maintained landscaped gardens and enjoy a hot meal 365 days of the year at the development’s waitress service restaurant.  And, as well as the neighbourly company of other like-minded retirees, staff will be on site 24 hours a day to keep an eye on things and help when needed.
