McCarthy & Stone honour site's history in naming of new Benllech development

02 June 2017

The UK’s leading retirement housebuilder McCarthy and Stone, has officially announced the name of its new Retirement Living development in Benllech, after it ran a competition for locals in the area to put their stamp on it.

The developer was inundated with suggestions and decided to call the new development, Plas Glanrafon. Local resident, Joshua Price was the lucky winner of the competition, and attended the development which is currently under construction, to be presented with a £250 cheque for his efforts.

Josh who has lived in Benllech all his life said: “I wanted to name the development after the Plas Glanrafon hotel that previously occupied the site. The hotel was once a significant landmark in Anglesey but became derelict and a bit of an eyesore so it is great to see McCarthy and Stone rejuvenate the old building with something more modern. I’m thrilled to have won the competition and would like to thank McCarthy and Stone for their generous prize and taking the time to show me around the new site.”

Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy and Stone North West, Fiona Brooks, said: “Congratulations to Josh for naming our latest development in Benllech. We received some brilliant suggestions from the local community so we would like to thank everyone who entered for their efforts. We appreciate that our responsibility is not only to increase the provision of high quality, purpose-built age-exclusive properties, but also to create a positive legacy in the communities in which we build.” 

“With construction now well underway, we are looking forward to the launch of Plas Glanrafon this autumn when apartment specifications and prices will be released. Early birds will benefit from purchasing off plan by having the pick of all the available plots. It is a very exciting time for our business as interest in the site is high amongst retirees who already live in Benllech as well as amongst people who are looking to downsize to this popular holiday destination from further afield.” 

McCarthy and Stone Retirement Living developments are designed to bring together a community of like-minded people desiring a premium lifestyle. Exclusively for the over 55s, Plas Glanrafon will consist of 35 luxury one and two bedroom apartments, alongside beautiful landscaped gardens and convenient on-site parking. Facilities will include a Homeowners’ Lounge, ideal for socialising with friends, a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay and 24 hour emergency call points for added peace of mind.

Plas Glanrafon’s enviable seaside town location makes it an ideal place to retire to with its award winning beaches and breathtaking views across the Great Orme and Penmon Point. Those interested in the idyllic retirement lifestyle on offer on the Isle of Anglesey are invited to get in touch with the sales team without delay to snap up one of these highly anticipated apartments.
