Local MP Explores Downsizing Options in Filey

24th October 2019 

Thirsk and Malton MP, Kevin Hollinrake, has marked the start of construction at McCarthy and Stone’s new retirement community in Filey.

Kevin Hollinrake MP joined McCarthy and Stone’s Marketing Executive, Tina Morrell, and Area Sales Manager, Cate Palmer, at the site located on Church Cliff Drive to explore development plans and officially celebrate the start of construction.

Once complete, the retirement community will feature 20 two-bedroom bungalows, which will be available to reserve off plan available in Autumn 2019, as well as a Retirement Living development, with 39 one and two-bedroom luxurious apartments with off-plan reservations starting in Spring 2020.

Kevin Hollinrake MP commented: “It was a pleasure to visit the site of McCarthy and Stone’s upcoming retirement community in Filey and mark the start of construction there. The plans for the build look fantastic and it’s hugely exciting that construction is now under way. I’m sure future homeowners will be very happy with the development and I look forward to seeing it when it’s complete.”

Liz Green, Regional Sales and Marketing Director from McCarthy and Stone North East, added: “We are thrilled that Thirsk and Malton MP, Kevin Hollinrake, was able to take the time to visit our upcoming Filey development, and take a look at the plans for the retirement community, with the first homeowners moving in Spring 2020.

“McCarthy and Stone is committed to designing contemporary, flexible homes which allow people to live their retirement independently and to the full. It was great to be able to showcase the plans, and we are thoroughly looking forward to becoming an integrated part of the Filey community.”

In this private gated community by the sea, the bungalows are each intelligently designed to maximise space and light and feature their own private outdoor space. There’ll also be a communal landscaped garden for homeowners to enjoy and socialise with their fellow neighbours. The easy to maintain bungalows are built to a high specification and homeowners will benefit from excellent security features, as well as a 24/7 emergency call system for added peace of mind.
