Retirement Living Development gets green light in Knebworth

16 March 2015

Following extensive consultation with the Knebworth community and local councillors, McCarthy and Stone, Britain’s leading retirement property developer, is delighted to announce that its proposal to transform a site on London Road was granted planning permission by North Hertfordshire District Council in November 2014.

McCarthy and Stone’s proposals will enhance the local scene with a vibrant development of 26 high-quality, one and two bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s, conveniently located close to a range of local amenities including local shops, coffee shops and Knebworth train station. The development will include a stunning club lounge ideal for socialising with friends, beautifully landscaped gardens in which to relax and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. As part of McCarthy and Stone’s Signature range, the development will be designed to offer homeowners the highest specification of accommodation and high quality living.  

Construction is expected to commence in the summer with homes being available to buy off plan from the spring of 2016.

Elaine Stratford, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone, explains: “From the outset we have been committed to delivering the right development for the needs of the local area and have really enjoyed working with local residents to help shape our plans. We are delighted with the result and are inviting anyone who may be interested in securing one of these stunning apartments for themselves to register their interest now.”

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living developments are designed to offer homeowners the very best in independent living within a safe and secure environment, with the opportunity to benefit from companionship when they want it and privacy and assistance when they need it.

The development also benefits from its very own Concierge, who will ensure the smooth running of the development, a security entrance system, plus 24-hour emergency call points for added peace of mind for both homeowners and their families.
