Showcasing stunning designs in Eaton

07 May 2019

The UK’s leading manager and developer of retirement communities, McCarthy Stone, has partnered with Edward Thomas Interiors to showcase stylish and homely living spaces, exclusively for the over 70’s, at its Daisy Hill Court Retirement Living Plus development in Eaton.
Edward Thomas Interiors has created an elegant design scheme for Daisy Hill Court which fits with the luxury lifestyle on offer at the age-exclusive development on Bluebell Road.
Andy Richardson, Managing Director of Edward Thomas Interiors, commented: “We have a strong relationship with McCarthy Stone, and we have enjoyed working with the East Midlands team many times before. Before we start working on designs, we like to visit the development to get a feel for the surrounding area; and we talk to local retirees to discover what prospective homeowners may desire in terms of style, and what they need in terms of functionality.” 
Andy and his team specialise in quality bespoke work, and they sought to reflect the individuality of the homeowners through unique features crafted especially for Daisy Hill Court – such as tailor-made seating to ensure there is something suitable for each resident and handmade curtains in luxurious Sanderson fabrics. 
Andy continued: “Designing for retirement requires a great attention to detail. Everything has been thoughtfully hand-picked to ensure homeowners can enjoy their new home without any compromise on style. 
“The scheme is quintessentially English and features soft florals and checks along with classic painted furniture. It is an elegant style with contemporary touches, and it feels fresh and timeless. We have chosen a restful palette of duck egg blue and mauve, and we have drawn inspiration from the local area in a number of ways, especially through artwork.
“When we were designing the scheme, we wanted the spaces to feel homely and functional for everyday life, whilst also ensuring they are impressive enough that homeowners are proud to invite friends and family to visit. We have had excellent feedback from many of those who have moved in, which suggests we have achieved this.”
Situated in the attractive village of Eaton and in close proximity to the wide variety of local amenities and shops in Norwich, Daisy Hill Court features an exclusive collection of one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments.  With three quarters of the properties now sold, prices currently start from £238,450 for a one bedroom apartment and from £299,950 for a two bedroom apartment.
The development features a high-quality table service restaurant on site, a spacious and contemporary homeowners’ lounge, and lifts to assist with access; as well as a stunning landscaped gardens and private terraces. 
With flexible domestic and personalised support packages available – which can be tailored to provide varying levels of support according to individual need – homeowners are able to retain independence in the form of home ownership, yet still have the peace-of-mind that support is on hand. A dedicated Estates Manager also ensures the smooth running of the development, with 24 hour, 365 days a year on-site staffing.
Cheryl Bissett, Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone East Midlands, commented: “We are urging anyone interested in securing a luxury, modern apartment for themselves to come along to our show complex at Daisy Hill Court and take a look around, or get in touch without delay. 
“All homeowners can be confident they are getting the very best, as more than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring we have received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade, which is every year the awards have been run.”
