Is it more expensive to live in one of your apartments than my current home?
Many of our homeowners are pleased to find that the service charges for their apartment tend to work out at less than what they were paying in like-for-like costs at their previous property.
Energy bills often turn out to be lower thanks to the modern construction methods we use at all our developments. Your new apartment is also likely to be a more manageable size and so cheaper to run.
When Customers discuss the purchase of a McCarthy Stone apartment with us, they receive a service charge leaflet and our Sales Executive sits down with them to help them fill in the costs, review what is covered in the management services and compare them to day-to-day running costs in their current home. Our Sales Executive ensures that they have a detailed knowledge of ongoing costs before a sale is completed
How long from putting down a deposit do I have to purchase the apartment?
Usually this can take between 12 to 16 weeks. We understand that some customers may have a time period that will more suitable for them and we aim to be as flexible as we can.
We are determined to provide positive resale values and to this end, we have changed dramatically since 2010 to make a big difference to our products and services. We have a dedicated resales team to deal with all future resales and to achieve the best prices, we also maintain an extensive database of prospects who are looking to buy our properties in the desirable areas we have located ourselves in over the past four decades.
“I'm really pleased with my new home - my apartment is very comfy, I feel safe and the communal areas are very comfortable, it's like living in your own five-star hotel!”
Living in Macclesfield
A jewel in Macclesfield's crown, Capesthorne Hall is a family-owned Jacobean-style stately home set in 100 acres of beautiful Cheshire countryside. Built between 1719 and 1732, the house is open to the public, where you can marvel at its historical paintings, marble sculptures, antique furniture and 16th-century stained glass windows. The grounds also offer a tranquil setting for an afternoon stroll, with three lakes, formal gardens, an ice house and woodland walks, among other delights. The hall is also the setting for two more of Macclesfield's annual festivals. Rewind is an 80s festival featuring iconic performances and themed venues, while Classic Ibiza sees classic Ibiza anthems played by the Urban Soul Orchestra with a live DJ and internationally renowned vocalists.
Fantastic opportunities for outdoor activities abound in Macclesfield Forest and the nearby Teggs Nose Country Park. Both are great for walking, horse riding, cycling and fishing. Macclesfield Forest is also an excellent place for bird watching, with the Peak District's largest heronry at Trentabank Reservoir, and Teggs Nose offers stunning views across the Cheshire Plain.
