Parkland Place, a new McCarthy and Stone Retirement Living development on Shortmead Street in Biggleswade, is proving to be a roaring success, with 21 apartments sold off-plan at a highly anticipated sales launch.

Parkland Place will welcome its first homeowners in February 2018.  When complete, it will comprise a stylish collection of 46 spacious one and two bedroom apartments and three exclusive characterful two-bedroom cottages, with all properties designed for those aged 60 and over.

Stephen Rolt, Regional Sales & Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone North London Region, comments: “We have been truly overwhelmed by the fantastic response to our new development, Parkland Place, which is proving incredibly popular locally. It is great so many locals have recognised the benefits of moving to a high specification apartment or luxury cottage, where there is a friendly community of neighbours right on the doorstep.

“At McCarthy and Stone, we are committed to helping older people stay independent for longer while living in a secure, low maintenance home. The demand we are experiencing is certainly testament to the real need for this type of housing in the area.”

Facilities at the Parkland Place Retirement Living apartments include a stunning Club Lounge, ideal for socialising with friends, and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay.  A dedicated House Manager takes care of the day-to-day running of the development; and there are no maintenance worries, with all external and communal areas taken care of by McCarthy and Stone’s expert team.

Representing a new and highly exclusive proposition for prospective McCarthy and Stone homeowners, the two bedroom cottages at Parkland Place are ideal for retirees who are looking for a little extra space and privacy.  Each of the elegantly-finished cottages comprises thoughtfully-designed living accommodation across two floors. 

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 12 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.
