New retirement living complex launched in Bitterne Park

09 April 2019

Last week saw the sparkling opening of The Boathouse - McCarthy Stone’s new Retirement Living development on Riverdene Place in Bitterne Park.

The McCarthy Stone team at the development were joined by Bitterne Park retirees and their relatives for an open day to celebrate the latest milestone at the age-exclusive development. More than 40 local people turned out for the event, where live entertainment was provided by a Michael Bublé tribute act.

The professionally-styled show apartments at The Boathouse were also unveiled on the day, and guests took the opportunity to take a closer look at the layout and specification of the apartments. Visitors were also invited to spend time in the club lounge and to walk around the landscaped gardens, to get a feel for the low maintenance lifestyle they could enjoy at the development.

Katrina Andrews, Sales Executive at McCarthy Stone’s Bitterne Park development, said: “It was fantastic to mark this latest milestone at The Boathouse. We are all incredibly proud of the development and we were delighted to be able to unveil the impressive show complex to Bitterne Park retirees – the feedback has been very positive indeed.

“We are committed to delivering an exceptional lifestyle here in Bitterne Park. As such, our Retirement Living development has a beautiful setting with landscaped gardens and luxuriously-appointed accommodation. With the maintenance of all external and communal areas taken care of, future homeowners can look forward to spending more time enjoying their retirement with family and friends.”

Comprising of 50 one and two bedroom apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 60 and over, The Boathouse provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing retirement.

The development features a club lounge, ideal for socialising with friends, landscaped gardens, and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or family to stay. Additional benefits include an experienced House Manager who oversees the day to day running of the development and 24-hour emergency call systems for added peace-of-mind.

The Boathouse is set within a small but thriving community. Local amenities are can be found directly opposite the development on Bitterne Park Triangle where there is a local bakers, supermarket, dry cleaners, various takeaways and convenience stores. There is also a bus stop directly outside, providing regular services to Southampton city centre and neighbouring areas such as St Denys, Bitterne, Ports wood and Eastleigh.

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 13 years’ running. McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 13 consecutive years, which is every year the awards have been run.

The show complex at The Boathouse is open from Tues – Sat 10.30 – 5pm. To enquire about a tour or for more information, please call 0800 201 4811 or click here to visit the development webpage.
