Last Chance to enjoy the golden life as McCarthy and Stone offers affordable retirement living in Morningside

23 March 2016

Morningside, Scotland

McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, has announced that its Retirement Living development in Morningside has released their final few ‘Golden Share’ apartments for sale as part of a joint commitment with The City of Edinburgh Council.

These last few Golden Share apartments at Stewart Terrace in Morningside represent a golden opportunity to make an affordable move to retirement living in Edinburgh.

‘Golden Share’ is an initiative from the Council that sets the asking price for selected apartments at 80% of the property’s open market value the day it goes on the market.  This is set in perpetuity for all time to come.  Buyers own 100% of the property but the price of the property is set at 80% of the open housing market. 

Rosemary Giovino, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone in Scotland, commented: “Retirement living offers those over 60 the independence of home ownership combined with the peace of mind of additional security and low maintenance, allowing homeowners to spend more time socialising with family and friends.

“We have just a few ‘Golden Share’ apartments remaining at our Stewart Terrace development in Edinburgh, so I’d encourage buyers to get in touch so we can help them to make their move into retirement living using this helpful scheme.”

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. 

The remaining one bedroom apartments at Stewart Terrace in Morningside range from £173,299 to £254,950.
