Sophisticated Designs Showcased At Retirement Development in Hunstanton

22 July 2019

The UK’s leading retirement housebuilder McCarthy and Stone has partnered with Edward Thomas Interiors to showcase sophisticated and homely living spaces, exclusively for the over 70s, at the Eastland Grange Retirement Living Plus development in Hunstanton.

Edward Thomas Interiors has created an elegant design scheme for Eastland Grange to complement the luxury lifestyle on offer at the development on Kings Lynn Road.

Andy Richardson, Managing Director of Edward Thomas Interiors, commented: “We have a strong relationship with McCarthy and Stone, and we have enjoyed working with the East Midlands team on numerous occasions. 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.

“Designing for retirement requires a great attention to detail. Everything has been thoughtfully hand-picked to ensure homeowners can enjoy their new home to the maximum. All the upholstery is bespoke, and accessories have been carefully chosen to create a timeless and sophisticated living area and to reflect the individuality of the homeowners at Eastland Grange.

“We have taken inspiration from the beautiful coastal setting of this development and have created a range of sophisticated spaces in a palette of blues and soft greys. A variety of textures such as wools, tweeds and leathers have been added to create interest and warmth.

“We wanted the spaces at Eastland Grange to feel homely and functional for everyday life, whilst also being impressive enough that homeowners are proud to invite friends and family to visit.”

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living Plus developments are exclusively designed for the over 70s to bridge the gap between conventional Retirement Living and residential care. Retirees are able to retain their independence in the form of home ownership, yet still have the peace-of-mind of a range of additional security and support services.

Just minutes from Hunstanton town centre and the beach front, Eastland Grange features an exclusive collection of one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments currently priced from £199,950 and £249,950 respectively.

The development will feature a large open plan bistro-style restaurant, a spacious and contemporary homeowners’ lounge, and lifts to assist with access; as well as stunning landscaped gardens, and a convenient guest suite for when friends and family come to visit. 

An Estates Manager will also be on hand to take care of the smooth-running of the development; and support packages can be tailored to homeowner’s individual needs, including help with chores such as housework and laundry.

Cheryl Bissett, Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone East Midlands, commented: “We have been truly overwhelmed by the fantastic response to our Eastland Grange development, which is proving incredibly popular with retirees in the local area. It is great that so many locals have recognised the benefits of moving to a high specification, luxury apartment where all the external maintenance is taken care of and where there is a friendly community of neighbours right on your doorstep.

“We are urging anyone interested in securing a luxury, modern apartment for themselves to come along to our show complex and take a look around, or get in touch without delay.”

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