About Retirement Living PLUS
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.
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 Topsham
Topsham is a coastal and affluent suburb of Exeter that sits alongside the Exe estuary, which is famous for its sailing and water sports. It was once a thriving port and shipbuilding centre, and today there’s still a charming passenger ferry that transports passengers across the Exe, as well as plenty of waterside pubs where you can stop for lunch. You can even take long or short cruises where you can discover the wildlife of the Exe estuary or visit Exmouth’s sandy beaches.
Topsham is a desirable and quirky town that boasts a selection of independent retailers. Within Topsham, there’s a popular antiques centre, an authentic Sunday market and plenty of local stores where the owners are incredibly passionate about their goods.
Within the town, there’s also a collection of distinctive buildings, including 17th century merchant houses that sit along The Strand. One of these is the Topsham Museum, where a number of interesting exhibitions are held.
If you like to get out and explore further afield, then you’ll be pleased to know that our retirement properties in Topsham will be located on a main bus route, with bus stops immediately outside the development. The development will also be close to Topsham railway station, which sits on the Avocet Line. All trains from Exmouth to Exeter St David’s stop at Topsham, and there’s a half-hourly daytime service in each direction.
With so much to see, do and explore in the local area, it’s perhaps no wonder that The Sunday Times voted Topsham as the best place to live in the South West in April 2019.
Our Topsham development will be located on Exeter Road in the heart of Topsham, with a great range of local amenities close by. An Aldi supermarket will be just 0.3 miles away, and you’ll be able to reach a great range of bars and restaurants if you head 0.2 miles in the other direction. If you’d like to travel further afield, then Topsham railway station will only be 0.6 miles away from the development.
There’s plenty to keep you busy in Topsham. Topsham Recreation Ground is just 0.3 miles away from the proposed site and Topsham Swimming Pool is 0.5 miles away.
