People over the age of 60 are being invited to register their interest now ahead of work starting on a new Later Living development in Portobello, Edinburgh.

Located on Baileyfield Road, close to the Portobello's High Street, the development is being built by the UK's leading retirement developer, McCarthy & Stone. When complete, it will comprise 49 one and two bedroom privately-owned retirement apartments plus an extensive range of facilities to help residents retain independence in later life.

Suzanne McElhiney, marketing manager for McCarthy & Stone in Scotland, comments: "Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling. Our new development in Portobello is designed to do just that and we're inviting anyone interested in finding out more to get in touch now."
With over 35 years of experience, McCarthy & Stone has become Britain's leading provider of retirement apartments, having built more than 45,000 apartments in 1,000 different schemes.

Its Later Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for later life. Facilities include a shared lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated house manager ensures the smooth running of the development and a security entrance system plus 24-hour emergency call points provide peace of mind for both residents and their families. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient.
In addition to offering age exclusive apartments, the retirement developer also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.

Apartments are expected to be released for sale in Spring 2013.
