This attractive retirement village will be home to 40 one-bedroom retirement apartments and 26 two-bedroom retirement apartments, exclusive to the over 70s and conveniently located in the centre of historic Wimborne Minster, Dorset. Spacious, light and contemporary, all McCarthy Stone retirement properties are designed to be a pleasure to live in, with high spec, high quality fixtures and fittings throughout.
The apartments will be centred around a lovely village green. Ideal for meetings, events and parties, the space is to be the beating heart of this retirement community. Just off the village green, you’ll find a wellness zone offering health and fitness studios, as well as a hair and beauty salon and a sociable homeowners’ lounge. There will be a bistro, so you’ll be able to meet your friends and family for a morning coffee or enjoy a long lingering lunch with a glass or two of wine. You’ll also find a pretty rural walking trail around the development.
Wimborne Minster is a picturesque and historic market town with Roman origins and an idyllic position on the banks of the rivers Stour and Allen. As well as the famous Minister with its many treasures, including a chained library, you can’t miss the unusual Wimborne Model Town and Gardens. An intricate miniature version of Wimborne in the 1950s, complete with flushing toilets, it’s a must see. Cyclists and strollers will enjoy meandering around the tranquil pathways, the pretty central square, the Willow Walk and along the wild-life rich riverbanks.
