Discover Hampton Place
Enjoy all the benefits of a McCarthy & Stone retirement community without having to sell your property. You can move in quickly, knowing there’s long-term security with one of our Assured Tenancies and settle in to your new home with minimum fuss. A rent to buy option is also available, so you can really try the lifestyle before you buy.
Part buy, part rent
Enjoy the lifestyle without committing to the full purchase price, giving you more financial flexibility for the future.
"We decided because it was such a big decision that using the Try Before You Buy scheme would be beneficial to see how we’d cope downsizing to a one bedroom apartment. The experience helped us to realise we’d be more than comfortable and it gave us peace of mind that we were making the right decision."
Living in Shirley
Southampton is known as the cruise capital of the UK, with its famous port home to some of the world’s most prestigious luxury cruise ships. Southampton and the nearby New Forest are both popular destinations, thanks to their fascinating histories, large green spaces and regular cultural events.
Shirley is also renowned for its shopping, with many national retailers, as well as independent shops, local restaurants and cafes and half a dozen pubs. A local market takes place every Thursday from 9am-4pm. For a touch of nature, there is the 5-acre St James Park, which has just been awarded a Green Flag Award for one of the best green spaces in the country.
Just a short bus journey away, the Southampton City Art Gallery has a renowned selection of art spanning the last 600 years, and the Mayflower Theatre has hosted a number of West End shows. Music fans will be able to enjoy concerts of all genres at both the Mayflower and the renowned Guildhall.
