Grand Unveiling - North London - Edward House - Hertford

Local retirees joined the Mayor of Hertford, Councillor Beryl Wrangles, last week to celebrate the official unveiling of McCarthy and Stone’s new Retirement Living Plus development, Edward House, on Pegs Lane.

After a guided tour of the brand new show complex, on-site facilities and landscaped gardens at Edward House, the Mayor marked the development’s unveiling with a ceremonial ribbon-cutting.

Councillor Beryl Wrangles said: “It was my pleasure to be part of this important milestone at Edward House and to see for myself what a fantastic new development it is.

“Living independently and securely is extremely important; and with a growing number of people reaching retirement age I’m delighted developments such as this are being built to provide people in Hertford and beyond with a number of options to make the most out of their later years.”

The event at Edward House provided an opportunity for the people of Hertford to find out more about how they could enjoy their retirement in a quality, low maintenance apartment, designed specifically for the over 70s.

Caroline Tiernan, Marketing Manager for McCarthy and Stone North London, commented: “We were thrilled to welcome the Mayor of Hertford, Councillor Beryl Wrangles, as well as familiar faces from the local area to Edward House to mark the unveiling of the development.

“We are committed to delivering an exceptional lifestyle at Edward House. With the maintenance of all external and communal areas taken care of, homeowners can look forward to spending more time enjoying their retirement with family and friends.”

Designed exclusively for the over 70s, McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living Plus developments offer retirees the opportunity to maintain an independent lifestyle, while having access to tailored domestic and personal assistance packages to help them manage their day-to-day lives.

Edward House comprises a stylish collection of 57 modern one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, currently priced from £325,000 and £460,000 respectively.

The development features a Club Lounge complete with Wi-Fi, ideal for socialising with new-found friends; an on-site restaurant providing freshly cooked meals; a guest suite for when homeowners have visitors to stay; and beautifully maintained gardens.  An Estates Manager takes care of the daily running of the development, while secure entry systems and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind.

Located in the picturesque market town of Hertford, homeowners at Edward House will enjoy easy access to a broad range of shops and essential amenities.  There are good public transport links nearby, including two train stations within walking distance of the development.

More than 90 percent of customers would recommend McCarthy and Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the maximum Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 13 years’ running.  It is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 13 years, which is every year since the awards have been running.
