Award winning homebuilders McCarthy & Stone are pleased to announce they’ve secured a new development of age-exclusive one and two bedroom apartments, designed specifically with the needs of the over-70s in mind.
Featuring high-end detailing throughout, including fully fitted kitchens with integrated fridge freezer, maintained gardens, heated towel rails and lifts to all floors, each apartment is designed to feel like home whilst being low maintenance and comfortable. Homeowners will be able to retain full independence with the added assurance that help is available when needed. Bathrooms will come fully fitted and tiled with level access showers and slip resistant flooring. Telephone and TV points are to be pre-installed in the lounge and main bedroom and electrical sockets have been raised to waist-height for ease of use.
Domestic assistance will be available to all homeowners and an on-site restaurant offers the chance to enjoy socialising with neighbours during meal times. The proposed development will also feature a beautifully decorated communal lounge area and a guest suite for visiting family and friends. Car parking will be available on site and staff are available 24-hours a day, every day of the year. A 24-hour emergency call system is also in place for added peace of mind.
Chipping Norton is well located for access to local towns and cities. By road, the M42 and M40 are easily accessible, whilst various bus routes offer comprehensive local services, as well as routes to Oxford and Banbury. There are two bus stops located within easy walking distance of the development. Kingham train station is just five miles from the town centre and provides regular services to London Paddington, Oxford, Reading, Malvern, Evesham and Worcester.
With a rich sense of history and English charm, the pretty town of Chipping Norton is nestled in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, on the western slopes of a hillside that was once home to a Norman castle. Today it is the perfect location for anyone looking for a peaceful place to spend retirement years with the added bonus of good transport links and a range of amenities and services right on your doorstep.
Chipping Norton has played host to a weekly market since the 13th Century and the tradition continues today with regular farmer’s markets in the Market Square offering fresh produce and locally produced goods. Shopping enthusiasts will also find plenty to entertain them in the original narrow shopping streets where department stores, boutiques and high street brands offer everything from gifts and crafts to clothes and antiques. The Jaffe and Neale Bookshop and Café offers some distinct local charm with delicious cakes and coffees amongst a treasure trove of publications both old and new.
For day-to-day shopping both a Sainsbury’s and a Co-op supermarket can be found just a short walk from the development, along with some independent food stores including a delicatessen, a fish monger and a butcher. A local pharmacy can be found adjacent to the development.
To get a sense of the local history pay a visit to the Rollright Stones, a Neolithic site featuring ancient stone circles set in beautiful open countryside. For some rest and relaxation head to the beautiful Chipping Norton Golf Club and Spa, just one mile from the new development.
