New Retirement PLUS complex launched in Bristol

28 May 2019

Last week saw the grand opening of McCarthy and Stone’s new Retirement Living Plus development, Magpie Court, on Hanham High Street in Bristol. 

The McCarthy and Stone team at the development were joined by Bristol retirees and their relatives for an open day to celebrate the latest milestone at Magpie Court, where more than 50 per cent of the apartments have already been reserved.  

Many local people turned out for the event, where live entertainment was provided by a Michael Bublé tribute act.  The professionally-styled show complex at Magpie Court was 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 social spaces, such as the homeowners’ lounge, bistro and function room, and they were also able to walk around the landscaped gardens and get a feel for the low maintenance lifestyle they could enjoy at the development.

Magpie Court has been designed for the over 70s, and future homeowners will benefit from having an Estates Management team on-site 24 hours a day.  Tailored care packages and domestic support will be available for those who need a helping hand.  

Ciara Hilley, Divisional Marketing Manager for McCarthy and Stone Southern, said:  “It was fantastic to mark this latest milestone at Magpie Court with such a lively and well-attended open day.  

“Developments like these are a great asset to the community as they help to bridge the gap between conventional retirement living and residential care. This provides greater flexibility and choice for people who may be looking to downsize in later life, by allowing them to keep independence in the form of home ownership, but with the peace-of-mind of additional support services, should they need them now or in the future.

“We are all incredibly proud of Magpie Court, and would encourage anyone interested to get in touch and come and see for themselves what makes this development so special.”

Located in the Bristol suburb of Hanham, Magpie Court is ideally situated for easy access to a variety of local amenities, including a supermarket, bank and post office. There are also excellent public transport links to both Bath and Bristol. 

Prices at the development currently start from £231,000 for a one bedroom apartment and £289,000 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.
