Do you enjoy the hustle and bustle of a town centre? Do you admire bold, modern design? Do you enjoy a spot of retail therapy, like to meet friends in a cosy coffee shop or enjoy watching your local sports team at the weekends? McCarthy Stone's Retirement Living development in Cambourne has all this and more on its doorstep.

Situated in the centre of the lively town of Cambourne and boasting outstanding contemporary design, this landmark building offers a choice of 28 one-bed apartments and 25 two-bed apartments, with many featuring their own balcony. All residents have access to both the spectacular roof terrace and the communal south-facing Sky Lounge, from which you can admire wonderful extended views over Cambourne. There are also four stunning penthouse apartments available.

Each apartment, and in fact the entire development, has been designed with your new lifestyle in mind. You can be as independent as you like in this safe and secure environment. The camera entry system and 24/7 call system give you peace of mind, and the on-site House Manager is available during office hours should you need anything. Lifts to all floors guarantee accessibility throughout and, with a car park and scooter store, you won’t have any problems getting out and about. We’re also happy to welcome any well-behaved pets, and the guest suite allows your friends and family to be just as comfortable as you when they come to stay.

A parade of retail shops can be found immediately opposite the development, there’s a pub and restaurants nearby, and you’ve got a great choice of local cafes. Also within walking distance is a Morrisons supermarket, Cambourne Fitness and Sports Centre and Monkfield Medical Practice. Should you need it, Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge is only 14 miles away. In a prominent town centre location, our Cambourne development offers a wealth of opportunities on your doorstep.
