Sip Sip Horray!

06 April 2019

People in Chelmsford recently tasted a super selection of gins at an exclusive event held at McCarthy Stone’s Miami House Retirement Living Plus development on Princes Road.

The Miami House community was a hive of activity, with homeowners and local retirees enjoying a fantastic array of gin samples while finding out more about their favourite tipples. Attendees were treated to everything from flavoured gins to the perfect tonic, as well as a cocktail and mocktail making masterclass from Steve the Barman. 

Simon Pendlebury, Regional Sales and Marketing Director at McCarthy Stone North London, commented: “We are delighted that so many local people were able to join homeowners and staff at our Miami House Retirement Living Plus development for a fun afternoon of gin tasting.

“The event provided an opportunity for homeowners to socialise and to expand the already vibrant community at Miami House; while visitors were able to explore the development and find out more about the stunning apartments available.  It was a great way of involving Chelmsford retirees in just one of the many exciting and interesting activities that take place at Miami House.” 

Comprising a selection of one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, exclusively for people aged 70 and over, McCarthy Stone’s Miami House development offers retirees the opportunity to maintain an independent lifestyle, while having access to tailored domestic and personal assistance packages to help them manage their day-to-day lives.  

The shared lounge is perfect for socialising with new neighbours, and homeowners can make the most of beautiful landscaped gardens knowing all the maintenance is taken care of. They can also feel secure in the knowledge that the Estates Manager is on hand to provide any help or support should they need it. An on-site restaurant provides freshly cooked meals and a hotel-style guest suite accommodates visiting friends and relatives.

Future homeowners at Miami House will be able to take advantage of the development’s close proximity to the Capital; and to a wide selection of shops, landmarks and places of interest, including the Grade II listed Hylands House and the Chelmsford Museum. 

Prices at Miami House currently start from £350,000 for a one-bedroom apartment and £450,000 for a two bedroom apartment.
