With the first homeowners due to move in inAutumn 2025, work is well underway to transform the site which will help to meet the housing need for elderly people in the local area, whilst freeing up other properties in the process. Once complete, the development will offer contemporary, low-maintenance apartments that each pair intelligent, ergonomic design with stylish décor and energy-efficient features, along with superb communal facilities, including a spacious lounge for regular social meetups, well-maintained landscape gardens, a subsidised chef-run bistro serving freshly prepared meals daily, and a beauty salon.

An Estates Management team will take care of the day-to-day running of the development, as well as provide support through tailored care packages as and when required, while a secure entry system and 24-hour emergency call points will offer added peace-of-mind.

More than nine out of 10 customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation.
