Foundry Place in Beccles named best in UK for Retirement Living
Celebrations are in order for the team at a Beccles Retirement Living Plus development following its recent success at a prestigious awards scheme that recognises the very best in UK housebuilding.
McCarthy Stone’s Foundry Place scooped the top award for ‘best retirement scheme’ at this year’s Housebuilder Awards. It was chosen from hundreds of entries and scored against various categories including customer satisfaction, architecture and design, colleague engagement, marketing, regeneration, and sustainability.
Beating strong competition, the Gosford Road site was crowned the winner, highlighting the quality and expertise that has gone into every stage of its development.
Commenting on the award success, David Meachem, Divisional Sales Director at McCarthy Stone, said: “We are delighted to be recognised for the superior design of our communities and our unique brand of retirement living, in one of the sector’s most highly regarded awards scheme.
“The accolade is testament to the hard work and dedication of the team at Foundry Place, and we are proud to play our part in enabling older people to live independently for as long as possible, and to lead happier, healthier lives.”
“I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in creating this award-winning development, which is one of our first retirement communities to offer a choice of apartments and bungalows, as well as a range of purchasing options to make retiring in style more accessible.”
With only a handful of one- and two-bedrooms apartment for sale remaining, Foundry Place bridges the gap between traditional residential care and independent living for the over 70s. With 55 low-maintenance apartments and a number of sold-out bungalows, Foundry Place features state-of-the-art facilities including a well-appointed lounge which is host to a variety of social events, a Bistro-style restaurant serving freshly-prepared meals daily, attractive landscaped gardens and a guest suite for visiting family and friends. For peace of mind, a dedicated Estate Management team is on-site around the clock to provide tailored domestic support and personal care to suit individual needs, while a 24-hour emergency call system and video door entry ensure a safe and secure living environment.
