Retirees in East Riding Celebrate Grand Opening

10 June 2019

The BBC TV's Antiques Expert, David Harper, joined retirees in the East Riding to celebrate the grand opening of McCarthy and Stone’s new Lifestyle Living development, Stapleton Court in Swanland.

Guests were given a tour of the professionally-styled show complex and took a closer look at the stylish central atrium – all whilst enjoying a glass of Champagne and light refreshments. Throughout the day, the McCarthy and Stone sales team were on-hand to answer any questions, and to advise on how they can make moving to Stapleton Court even easier.

David Harper gave a presentation to discuss his life as one of TV's most prominent antiques experts and provided stories from his extensive career.

Liz Green, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone North East, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to officially open our fabulous development in Swanland. Our easy to maintain, luxurious apartments allow homeowners to enjoy their independence, with the added benefit of communal areas for socialising with neighbours. We would like to say a huge thank you to David Harper for joining us and giving a thoroughly interesting presentation on his career. We would encourage anyone over the age of 55 who is considering downsizing to take a look at the development themselves, they won’t be disappointed!”

McCarthy and Stone’s Stapleton Court Lifestyle Living complex on Tranby Lane has been designed exclusively for those aged 55 and over; and includes 36 luxury two bedroom apartments. Each individual home will come with either its own terrace or private walk out balcony, as well as high specification appliances, luxurious finishes and clever design features; such as walk-in wardrobes and low profile shower sets.

As well as access to beautiful landscaped gardens, fully maintained by McCarthy and Stone’s expert team, homeowners will benefit from excellent security features and a range of services such as window cleaning.

Ideally located in the beautiful village of Swanland, the development is within easy reach of essential local amenities, as well as public transport links to surrounding towns and cities, including Hull.

Apartments at the Swanland development are now available to buy, with interested retirees invited to visit the sales office, open daily between 10.30am – 5pm.

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 for 14 years, which is every year the awards have been run.
