People over the age of 60 are being invited to register their interest now as work begins on a new Retirement Living development in Edinburgh.

Located on Balcarres Street close to the bustling heart of Morningside, the development is being built by the UK’s leading retirement developer, McCarthy & Stone. When complete, it will comprise 40 one and two bedroom privately-owned retirement apartments plus an extensive range of facilities to help residents retain independence in later life.

Claire McBain, marketing manager for McCarthy & Stone in Scotland, comments: “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling. Our new development in Morningside is designed to do just that and we’re inviting anyone interested in finding out more to get in touch now.”

With over 35 years of experience, McCarthy & Stone has become Britain’s leading provider of retirement apartments, having built more than 45,000 apartments in 1,000 different schemes.

Its Retirement Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for later life. Facilities include a shared lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated house manager ensures the smooth running of the development and a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points provide peace of mind for both residents and their families. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient.

In addition to offering age exclusive apartments for sale, the retirement developer also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.

Construction of the apartments is expected in March, and will be released for sale in September 2014.
