A new McCarthy & Stone development of Lifestyle Living properties is subject to planning on Albury Road. Built to maximise space and light, these beautiful two bedroom properties will be located in a highly desirable location in the affluent and prospering Surrey town of Guildford.
Stylish, low maintenance and luxurious, our Lifestyle Living properties are designed for anyone over the age of 55. They're perfect for anyone looking to downsize, but they're also designed to increase living space, including practical and thought-out features and luxurious fittings. Privacy is also provided to the exterior of the property, with balconies and private outdoor areas proposed on selected apartments, in addition to communal gardens.
Plus, ownership of our retirement properties in Guildford is hassle free, as your service charge generally includes buildings insurance; security lighting for the communal areas; water and sewerage for apartments and communal areas; window cleaning; maintenance of all communal areas, and equipment such as the door entry security system and lift. 1-2-1 parking is also provided for residents.
These retirement properties in Guildford will also provide you with the reassurance that your home is safe and secure thanks to the additional security features that we provide, including a 24/7 call system and camera entry.
In addition, when you relocate to one of our retirement properties in Guildford, all the gardening and exterior maintenance of your property is taken care of, so you can spend more time doing the things that you love.

Living in Guildford
Located in the heart of Surrey, Guildford is a thriving town situated on the banks of the River Wey.
Close to our retirement properties in Guildford, you'll find the cobbled High Street, a two-storey shopping mall and local entertainment centres only 0.5 miles away. Plus, within a mile of the development, you'll find BMI Mount Alvernia Hospital, St Luke's Surgery and Burneston Dental.
Visitors to Guildford are greeted by the stunning red-brick cathedral and its golden angel weather-vane. Perched on high overlooking the town at Stag Hill, from here you get enviable views of Guildford and the surrounding landscape. There's much more to see and explore in Guildford, too, including Guildford Castle, Guildford Museum and a range of art galleries.
If you're looking to stay fit and active, then the development is close to Pewley Down Local Nature Reserve, which is great for outdoor walks with breathtaking views over the Surrey Hills. The Wey Navigation along the banks of the River Wey is also a great location for a picturesque stroll away from the bustling town centre.
Guildford is also incredibly well-connected both locally and nationally. You'll find bus stops directly outside the development, serving central Guildford, Woking and the surrounding towns and villages. You'll also find Guildford rail station just over a mile away. Here you can reach London Waterloo and the Hampshire coast directly, making them perfect day trip locations. If you make use of the free parking at the development, then you'll also have easy access to the A3, which links to the M25 and the A3100.
