Portobello development proves popular with over 60s

18 December 2013

McCarthy & Stone’s Retirement Living development, Clifton Mews in Portobello has proved so popular with buyers that over 30 per cent of the properties have already been reserved off plan.

Despite only going on sale in October of this year, the Retirement Living development on Baileyfield Road has generated considerable interest, with 14 retirement apartments already reserved before construction is even complete.

Claire McBain, Marketing Manager for McCarthy & Stone in Scotland, comments: “Usually we would expect to sell most of our apartments once the development is complete and ready to move into. However we had an incredible amount of interest as soon as we started work on Clifton Mews, particularly from local people who wanted to stay in the area but were looking for a more manageable property.

“With apartments selling quickly we’d urge interested purchasers to get in touch now to avoid disappointment.”

McCarthy & Stone is currently building 47 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments exclusively for the over 60s at Clifton Mews and prices start from £177,950 for a one bedroom apartment.

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 homes 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.
