Retirement properties given the go-ahead in Clacton-on-Sea
Planning permission has been granted for a new Later Living retirement development in Clacton-on-Sea. McCarthy & Stone, the UK's market leader in lifestyles for the over 60's, has been given the go-ahead to build an attractive collection of 32 apartments exclusively built to offer continued independence and home ownership in later life.
The one and two bedroom purpose-built private retirement properties will be ideally situated on Carnarvon Road, just a short distance from all the town's shops and amenities, the local train station., as well as seafront.
Sharon Callcut, regional marketing manager for McCarthy & Stone, comments: "We're thrilled to be introducing the McCarthy & Stone lifestyle to Clacton-on-Sea. As specialists in retirement, we understand what our customers want and pride ourselves on offering the ideal place for our purchasers to make the most of their later years in absolute comfort, without relinquishing either their independence, or home ownership."
With over 30 years' experience in the retirement living sector, McCarthy & Stone currently has over 150 selling developments across the UK.
Later Living developments offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an environment specifically designed for those reaching their later years. Reduced maintenance and property administration provides more time for people to embrace the possibilities of later life, while state of the art safety and security features and a range of communal areas and facilities mean greater peace of mind and companionship.
Standard features included in all McCarthy & Stone properties include 24-hour emergency call points, electrical sockets at a raised height to reduce bending, illuminated light switches, a camera entry system, easy grip lever taps in the bathroom and kitchen and energy efficient heating.
Residents will also be able to enjoy landscaped gardens, socialise and relax in the shared lounge and invite family and friends to stay in the development's guest suite. A laundry room, lift and private parking will also be located on site.
