Melksham Retirees Enjoy Pimms on the Patio at Retirement Development

16 July 2019

Homeowners and staff at McCarthy and Stone’s Meadowsweet Place Retirement Living development, on Spa Road in Melksham, did not let the rain dampen their spirits when they opened their doors to local retirees for an afternoon of ‘Pimm’s on the Patio’.

Guests may not have been able to make the most of the landscaped gardens – thanks to the great British weather – but they took the opportunity to enjoy a glass of Pimm’s on the patio and in the homeowners’ lounge at Meadowsweet Place.  All those who attended the special event were also invited to take a closer look at the development, where just five apartments are now remaining.  Visitors also spent time chatting to the McCarthy and Stone team, and retirees who are already living at the development.

Ciara Hilley, Divisional Marketing Manager for McCarthy and Stone, said: “Our ‘Pimm’s on the Patio’ event was a great success – in spite of the weather!  It was a pleasure to welcome so many local people through the doors.  Events such as this give us the chance to showcase the sense of community and companionship all retirees can enjoy here at Meadowsweet Place, and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development.”

Comprising a selection of 31 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over, Meadowsweet Place provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing retirement.  

The development features landscaped gardens, maintained by McCarthy and Stone’s expert team, a homeowners’ lounge for socialising with new neighbours, and a hotel-style guest suite for when family and friends come to stay. A House Manager takes care of the day-to-day running of the development, and there is a secure entry system and 24 hour emergency call points for added peace-of-mind.

Prices for the final remaining properties at Meadowsweet Place currently start from £225,000 for a one bedroom apartment and from £279,000 for a two bedroom apartment.

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy and Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  McCarthy and Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade, which is every year the awards have been run.
