Our brand new Retirement Living PLUS development in the attractive town of Oakham, in the East Midlands, is now selling and our Show Complex is now open!

The complex features 29 one bed and 29 two bed apartments, designed exclusively for the over 70s. At the McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living PLUS development in Oakham, safety is ensured with modern technology. Every apartment is fitted with a camera entry system, so you know exactly who is calling before permitting them access. We've also installed intruder alarms in all homes, as well as smoke detectors for your safety.

The high quality development and apartments will be designed with retirees in mind, allowing you to live independently with the peace of mind of having on site staff available 24 hours should you need them. There will be lift access to all floors, and special modifications in the apartments for those with limited mobility. We fit every apartment with a fully fitted kitchen, an electric kitchen window, an easy access shower room with a heated towel rail for those cold winter mornings, raised height electrical sockets to save bending too far, a fitted wardrobe so there's plenty of storage, and energy efficient heating to save you money.

Every homeowner at the McCarthy & Stone development can enjoy access to the entire complex, including landscaped gardens, a sociable Communal Lounge where you can meet your new neighbours, and an on-site bistro for when you fancy treating yourself. Oakham High Street is only 0.2 miles from the complex, where homeowners will find all the local amenities like a bank, pharmacy and shops, as well as plenty of independent cafes and restaurants.

THE LOCAL AREA

Living in Oakham

Oakham is the county town of Rutland in the East Midlands, 30 miles south east of Nottingham, 25 miles to the east of Leicester and 23 miles west of Peterborough. Oakham town centre has a thriving community, with plenty of independent shops, cafes and pubs, as well as all the local amenities like supermarkets, banks and pharmacies, and even a butcher's shop. There is a convenient Tesco supermarket only 250m away from the development, ideal for all the essentials.

McCarthy & Stone residents will have plenty of choice when it comes to eating out in Oakham, as there is a huge selection of restaurants serving a variety of cuisines, from traditional English fayre to Indian, Chinese and America. Oakham Castle is a popular attraction within the town, a rare example of 12th century architecture and sculptures. There's also Rutland County Museum for those interested in local history, and Oakham Library only 0.2 miles from the proposed development. Oakham lies to the west of Rutland Water, which is one of the largest man-made lakes in Europe, and a popular tourist attraction due to the wide variety of wildlife and ecosystems it supports.

The lakes are a conservation area, with plenty of birds, plants, insects and other native species making their homes there. The reserve is located 1.5 miles from the McCarthy & Stone development. Oakham train station is only 0.5 miles from the proposed development, which connects to Birmingham and Leicester to the west, and Peterborough to the east. There is also a once-daily service to Bedford, Luton and London St Pancras which passes over the historic Welland Viaduct, so there's plenty of opportunity for days out.
