A brand-new McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living Development is subject to planning in the attractive suburb of Stannington, close to Sheffield and the Peak District. Once completed, the complex will feature 21 one bed and 17 two bed apartments, exclusively available to the over 60s. The safety and security of all residents in Stannington will be ensured through the latest technology. Burglar alarms in all apartments will keep your belongings safe, and a camera entry system lets you check who is calling before permitting access. Our on-site House Manager is also available to keep an eye on things and help residents with any issues or queries.
Every apartment in the new development will be designed to a high specification, with modern fixtures and fittings. There will be Sky TV and telephone connection points in the living room and main bedroom, and a fully fitted kitchen with oven, hob and hood. Some apartments will also have the added luxury of private balconies. Keep your independence well into retirement, with lifts to all floors and wheelchair access throughout the development. Each apartment will also have a 24 hour call system for peace of mind. There’s a scooter store on site, so getting to the shops or the park will never be an issue. We also allow pets, so there’s no need to give up beloved family members before you move.
As with all McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living developments, Stannington will encourage a close-knit community feel thanks to the sociable shared spaces, including the Communal lounge where residents can meet their new neighbours, and the extensive landscaped gardens. We limit the number of apartments so that residents can get to know fellow residents and feel truly at home.
