Retirement Properties in Wickham

Planning permission has been granted for a new Later Living development in Wickham. McCarthy & Stone has been given the go-ahead to build an attractive collection of 31 apartments exclusively for those aged 60 and above.

The one and two bedroom privately owned retirement properties will be ideally situated on Winchester Road, in the pretty village of Wickham. The development is conveniently located near a range of shops and local amenities.

Lorena Brown, national sales director for McCarthy & Stone, comments: “Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, which is why we’re thrilled to be bringing a new offering to the town. As specialists in later living, we understand what our customers want; a low maintenance property offering independence and security, to help get the most out of later life.”

With over 35 years of experience, McCarthy & Stone has become Britain’s leading provider of retirement apartments, having built more than 45,000 apartments in 1,000 different schemes.

McCarthy & Stone’s Later Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for later life. Facilities will include a shared lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated house manager will ensure the smooth running of the development and a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points provide peace of mind for both homeowners and their families. All properties will be low maintenance and energy efficient.

In addition to offering age exclusive apartments, the retirement developer also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.

Construction on the new Wickham development is anticipated to start in winter 2014. To find out more, or to register your interest, please call 0800 201 4742.
