MP for Salisbury and South Wiltshire John Glen - McCarthy & Stone new development

MP for Salisbury and South Wiltshire, John Glen has donned a builder’s hard hat to lay the official date brick for the grand opening of the brand new McCarthy and Stone Retirement Living development, Queen Eleanor Court in Amesbury.

The Conservative MP joined Lucy Minter, Planning Officer for McCarthy & Stone, to take a tour of the site and to find out more about the benefits of living in a quality, low maintenance Retirement Living apartment in the fantastic setting of Amesbury.  

Located on Salisbury Street, Queen Eleanor Court will provide an attractive development of thirty three, one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments. Having already experienced a significant level of interest since launch, the development will welcome its first homeowners in summer 2015.

Mr Glen MP, pictured, said: “It was a pleasure to visit Queen Eleanor Court and formally mark its grand opening. Living independently and securely is so important and with an ever ageing population, it’s great to see developments like this in South Wiltshire, which will help local homeowners maintain their lifestyle with ease.”

Jacqui Meenan, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone commented: “We were delighted that John Glen MP was able to take time out and visit our exciting new Queen Eleanor Court development, and we look forward to welcoming retirees in and around Amesbury to the have a look at the superb range of facilities available.

“At McCarthy & Stone we are committed to helping the over 60s stay independent for longer. Retirement Living offers the independence of retaining home ownership with your own front door, but with all the maintenance of external and communal areas taken care of, so homeowners can spend more time enjoying their retirement with family and friends.”

Having already experienced significant levels of interest from members of the community who attended the sales launch for Queen Eleanor Court, with several purchasers taking advantage of the opportunity to reserve their ideal apartment off plan, McCarthy and Stone are urging anyone interested in securing one of these stunning homes for themselves get in touch with their experienced sales team now to avoid disappointment.”

Facilities at Queen Eleanor Court include a fabulous homeowners’ lounge ideal for socialising with friends, beautifully landscaped gardens featuring a pergola to ensure homeowners can relax, and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. The development also benefits from its very own House Manager, 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.

What’s more, Queen Eleanor Court benefits from a fantastic location being positioned within easy reach of a host of local shops and restaurants, nearby Grateley train station with direct lines into London and Salisbury, and many attractive walks both in the Stonehenge landscape and close to the River Avon.
