McCarthy & Stone Llanishen development honours local parish

13 November 2017

The UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, McCarthy and Stone, has announced the names of its new Retirement Living and Retirement Living Plus developments off Ty-Glas Avenue, Llanishen, Llys Faith and Llys Isan, named in honour of the two parish churches of Llanishen.   

The two churches, St Isan and St Faith, are both situated less than two miles from McCarthy and Stone’s exclusive new dual development. 

St Isan was the first of the two churches in Llanishen, featuring a stunning 15th Century tower. The church had minor alterations in the 19th century, before undergoing major building work in 1908 to preserve its heritage, which formed and created the present building. St Faith was built less than half a mile away in the 1960s to cater for the growing suburb of Llanishen. 

Simon Mantell, Regional Managing Director at McCarthy and Stone South West, said: “Both of these magnificent churches have played a significant part in local history, and remain a pillar of the community to this day with an active congregation - which is why we thought naming our new developments Llys Faith and Lys Isan would be a fitting tribute.” 

“Our new dual development demonstrates how McCarthy and Stone is committed to designing flexible homes which allow people to make the most of their retirement years, and to live as independently as possible with the benefit of having a range of amenities right on the doorstep. We believe this latest prestigious development will play a real part in helping to bring friends and family together in later life – something we feel is incredibly important and will continue to bring many positive benefits to the area.” 

Construction is well underway at the development, which seeks to provide two exclusive retirement options, Retirement Living and Retirement Living Plus. Apartments are now available to buy off-plan at the Retirement Living development, Llys Faith with first occupants expected in autumn 2018.The Retirement Living Plus development, Llys Isan, will be available to buy off-plan in 2018. 

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living development, Llys Faith, will comprise 36 one and two bedroom apartments for the over 60s.  Retirement Living offers all the benefits of home ownership, but without any of the maintenance worries, as all external and communal areas are taken care of by McCarthy and Stone’s expert team.  

Homeowners will be able to make the most of beautiful landscaped gardens; a homeowners’ lounge, ideal for socialising with new neighbours; and a comfortable guest suite should friends and family wish to stay over. A House Manager will also be on hand to take care of the day-to-day running of the development. 

The leading housebuilder will provide a further 49 spacious one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, at Llys Isan, designed exclusively for the over 70s and for those needing added support. Whether homeowners require help with chores such as housework or laundry, or just an extra pair of hands, support packages are tailored to individual needs, and a qualified team including an Estates Manager will always be available to help make life easier. A fully equipped bistro-style restaurant will provide freshly prepared meals daily if homeowners don’t wish to cook in their apartments; and 24-hour emergency call points will be in place for added peace of mind for both homeowners and their families.  

The village location of Llanishen is an idyllic place to downsize to. Homeowners will be within close proximity of a variety of shops and local amenities, and with the village’s leisure centre located next door, homeowners have plenty of activities on the doorstep. Within a short stroll of the development is Llanishen Park, while Llanishen reservoir is a pleasant 30 minute walk away, and is home to a variety of ducks and geese.
