The proposed site for this Retirement Living PLUS development is just a few hundred metres from the centre of the prosperous market town of Macclesfield. Perched on the edge of the Peak District, you'll be within minutes from spectacular views across the Cheshire peaks and plains, while the town itself is bustling with great shopping, fantastic eateries and interesting museums and galleries.
With 33 one-bed and 29 two-bed apartments, the development will be a fairly large retirement community, giving you the opportunity to meet lots of new, like-minded people. All apartments will be designed with you in mind, combining stylish design with practical elements such as raised ovens and sockets to minimise the need for bending. Some will even have their own balconies!
A bright and airy communal lounge will lie at the centre of the development, where you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and socialise with your fellow homeowners. Plus, the communal garden will be beautifully landscaped, providing you with a peaceful outdoor space. And, for the days when you don't feel like shopping or cooking, there'll be a restaurant on site serving great-value, quality meals.
Our care packages are totally flexible, so you'll only receive, and pay for, the support that you need. The development will be staffed 24 hours a day by a team of trained and dedicated staff. And the Estates Manager, who oversees the development day-to-day, will be available during office hours should you need anything. What's more, you'll have access to a 24-hour emergency call system, just in case.
To ensure you have peace of mind, whether you're at home or away, there'll be security systems, including camera entry, and we make sure all of our developments are fully accessible for all, with lifts to all floors. And, with both a scooter room and onsite car parking, you'll be able to get around however you like.

I love the spaciousness of the hallways and the tranquillity of my new home. My one-bedroom apartment is perfect, it has a Juliet balcony which looks over an abundance of trees and the beautifully landscaped gardens which I adore waking up to every morning.
Living in Macclesfield
The area surrounding Macclesfield is awash with grand stately homes and delightful landscaped gardens. Visit Capesthorne Hall, a Jacobean-style stately home set in 100 acres of grounds, and marvel at is historical paintings, marble sculptures, antique furniture and 16th-century stained glass. What's more, enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the grounds, where you'll find lakes, formal gardens, herbaceous borders and woodland walks. The nearby Gawsworth Hall is also a delight. A Tudor manor house built in 1480, it houses many treasures, including fine paintings and sculptures. And between Alderley Edge and Macclesfield you'll find Hare Hill, a National Trust garden with so much to offer. With a charming walled garden at its heart, the garden boasts enchanting woodlands surrounded by wide stretches of grand parkland.
