A new McCarthy & Stone development is subject to planning in Southsea. The development, which will be located just off Serpentine Road, will include 55 one and two bedroom apartments, including large penthouse style apartments on the upper floors. These retirement homes in Southsea will benefit from great sea views and a town centre location, putting residents right in the heart of a thriving local community. 

Our Retirement Living PLUS properties allow you to downsize, freeing you from the stress and the strain of maintaining a family home. At our development of retirement properties in Southsea, you'll still own your own apartment, but extra help will be on hand, should it be required. You'll also find it easy to make new friends and enjoy a great quality of life, as our development includes car parking, a communal lounge, 24-hour staffing and guest suites for when family and friends come to stay. Plus, all the exterior maintenance is taken care of. 

Our Retirement Living PLUS properties are built with the over-70s in mind. You?ll still live independently, but you'll also have tailored support to help meet your needs. Plus, you can also choose what help you'd like. Whether you need support with the shopping or would like someone to do your washing up, the choice is yours. All this means that when you purchase one of our retirement homes in Southsea, you'll have more time to do the things that you love.

Living in Southsea

Southsea is the perfect location if you're looking to retire to the coast. However, you'll also find plenty of green space around our development of retirement homes in Southsea, too. As well as a main garden and terrace at the development, you'll also find Southsea Common surrounding the site. This is a great spot to go for a stroll and enjoy the sea views. On the seafront, you'll also find Eastney Esplanade, which allows you to experience the best of these beautiful panoramas. On a clear day, you can even see as far as the Isle of Wight. 

Southsea's town centre is also only a short walk away from our retirement properties. Here you'll find a considerable array of shops, amenities, cafes and restaurants. Just outside the town centre, you can also discover Southsea's famous pier. This is a popular fishing spot, but you can also enjoy an amusement arcade, an ice cream parlour and The Gaiety Bar.

History lovers will find plenty to keep them entertained in Southsea thanks to Portsmouth's storied naval history. Southsea is home to both The D-Day Story and Southsea Castle, which was originally built by Henry VIII. Slightly further afield, the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, which is home to HMS Victory, is also incredibly popular with locals and tourists alike. 

Our retirement properties in Southsea are located on a busy and frequent bus route, which makes it simple to travel further afield. Portsmouth's busy city centre is only 1.5 miles away, as is Gunwharf Quays, which is one of the UK's largest designer outlets. For day trips, you'll find two mainline railway stations within two miles. Portsmouth and Southsea Railway Station provides simple access to London Waterloo in just over two hours, while you can reach Southampton in just over half an hour.
