Maidenhead Retirees Dance the Afternoon Away at Elgar Place 

27 May 2019

Homeowners and staff at McCarthy Stone’s Maidenhead Retirement Living development, Elgar Place, on Bridge Avenue, invited local retirees to put on their dancing shoes for a spectacular afternoon of ballroom dancing.  

Guests who attended the special event enjoyed two impressive performances from professional dancers, Richard and Morgan; and, after wowing everyone with dances such as Waltz and the Rumba, the professionals demonstrated some popular moves to help attendees improve their own technique. 

As well as dancing the afternoon away, guests were able to take a closer look at Elgar Place.  The event provided the opportunity to take a tour the show complex, meet the McCarthy Stone team, and chat with retirees who are already living at the development.

Kevin Sims, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone South East, said: “Our ballroom dancing event was a great success. Richard and Morgan put on a fantastic performance for our homeowners and guests, and everyone loved getting involved. If people were not up and dancing, then they were certainly tapping their toes.  

“The event was a good chance for us to showcase the wide variety of activities we host here at Elgar Place, and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development.” 

Comprising a selection of 38 one and two bedroom Retirement Living  apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over, Elgar Place provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing retirement.  

The shared social lounge and roof terrace are perfect for socialising with new neighbours and for making the most of the warmer days ahead, and homeowners can feel secure in the knowledge that the House Manager is on hand to provide any help or support should they need it. 

Set in a prominent location, Elgar Place is close to local amenities, including a Waitrose supermarket and the local high street, which has an array of cafes and shops. For those who wish to travel further afield, the development offers easy access to Windsor, Reading and Henley-on-Thames. 

Prices at Elgar Place currently start from £346,000 for a one bedroom apartment and from £450,000 for a two bedroom apartment. Plus, rental options are available.  

‘Experience the Lifestyle’ is now available for retirees looking to downsize to Elgar Place; giving prospective purchasers the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary one night stay in a fully furnished apartment so they can truly appreciate the broad range of facilities, active social calendar and community spirit at Elgar Place
