A new development in Thorpe St Andrew offering apartments specifically designed for later life has proved so popular with buyers that over 75 per cent of the properties have been bought off-plan.
Just ten of the 48 one bedroom apartments at McCarthy & Stone's Wherry Court development on Yarmouth Road now remain for sale, despite the development only opening its doors earlier this month.
Wherry Court is an attractive development in an enviable location. Locally there is a good range of shops, including a post office, a butchers and a large supermarket. Norwich city centre is less than two miles away and is easily accessible thanks to excellent bus routes.
The development itself is attractively designed with a gated entrance and allocated parking. Designed to enable homeowners to lead an active and independent lifestyle, it offers low maintenance, security and 24 hour support when it's needed. Extensive landscaped gardens and a residents lounge help promote a strong sense of community and companionship and there is a guest suite for visiting family and relatives.
Richard Williams, Regional Managing Director, comments: "Usually we would expect to sell most of our apartments once the development is complete and ready to move into. However we had an incredible amount of interest as soon as we started work on Wherry Court, particularly from local people who wanted to stay in the area but were looking for a more manageable property.
"With just a handful of apartments now remaining, we'd urge interested purchasers to get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment."
The apartments at Wherry Court, which was named after the Norfolk Wherries that sailed the Norfolk Broads, are exclusive to the over 60s and start from £160,950. All are light, spacious and thoughtfully designed with features to help promote independence in later life.
