Taking the first step towards retirement living involves much more than simply deciding to buy a home that's better suited to your needs - it's also about an opportunity to embrace a new way of life.
Having a well built and properly maintained home is important. But so too is the retirement lifestyle you can enjoy while living in it. Our ethos is to help you take care of both these things - let us take a moment to tell you how.

The thought behind your home
Long before you set foot inside your new apartment every thoughts and attention to detail has gone into making sure that your needs - both for now and into the future - have been looked after.
David Hockaday, who's a member of our Product Approval Group panel overseeing development and apartment specification and features, explains more
Making sure the location is right
How close is your home to the nearest shops selling groceries and providing for everyday needs? Is there a bus stop within easy walking distance and a decent public transport network in place? Can you stroll to local amenities on level ground?
These are the questions our land buying team starts asking from the very outset, as we carefully consider the potential setting for each new McCarthy and Stone development. Here Julian Kinder, our Group Land Manager, tells you more.
