Flexible Purchasing

  • Rent

    Renting a retirement home is an easy, flexible and quick way to enjoy life in a McCarthy & Stone community. While for some it’s a chance to ‘try before you buy’, you’ll benefit from long term security too. Did you know? Our retirement rental prices include service charge and ground rent. Find out more.

  • Buy

    If you’d like to own your retirement property outright, we can make the move as stress-free as possible, including support with packing and removals. If you have a home to sell, we can even act as a cash buyer, so you’ll avoid chains and estate agent fees.

  • Part buy, part rent

    Get the best of both worlds with Part buy, part rent. It’s an affordable way to enjoy all the benefits of our retirement apartments without committing to the full purchase price. If you want more financial flexibility, it could be the right option for you. Find out more.


Living in Purbrook

Located less than a mile from the town centre of Waterlooville, the Purbrook development offers all of the charm of village living alongside the convenience of a central location. The village itself is located just on the outskirts of the town and just north of Portsmouth.

Residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to spending time outdoors. The popular Purbrook Heath provides ample green space as well as cricket grounds and tennis courts. The heath also includes a large stretch of woodland.

Local attractions include Fort Purbrook which hosts occasional craft fairs and is home to a substantial activity centre that provides access to a wide range of sports and events. The centre is located in the grounds of the historic fort and is complete with riding school, archery, climbing wall and air rifle shooting. The centre also comes alive during school summer holidays with a busy calendar of events and workshops for children.

Waterlooville town centre is home to a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants and is a great place to enjoy a peaceful walk and some retail therapy. The Queen Elizabeth Country Park is within easy reach offering open expanses of green fields, bike trails and even paragliding and model gliding. Young children will love a visit to the Horizon World of Play, an indoor play park offering fun and educational experiences that will take little ones around the world to play with icy slides in Antarctica and hit the surf in Australia.

The development itself is surrounded by a number of convenient amenities. Waitrose and ASDA supermarkets are both located just over a mile away, whilst the friendly Woodman Pub is just next-door. There is also a Post Office 100 feet away.
