Retirement properties given the go-ahead in Devizes
Planning permission has been granted for a new retirement development in Devizes. McCarthy & Stone, the UK's market leader in retirement living, has been given the go-ahead to build an attractive collection of 37 apartments exclusively for those aged 60 and over.
The one and two bedroom purpose-built private retirement properties will be ideally situated on Wharf Street, adjacent to the Kennet and Avon Canal, and a short walk from the town's shops and amenities.
Aileen King, sales & marketing director, comments: "We're thrilled to be introducing the McCarthy & Stone lifestyle to Devizes. 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. Its developments are designed to promote an active and independent lifestyle for the over 60s and include facilities such as a residents' lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a lift.
A dedicated house manager ensures the smooth running of the development and a security entrance system and 24-hour emergency call centre provide peace of mind for both residents and their families. All properties are low maintenance and energy efficient.
Construction on the new Devizes development is anticipated to start in August 2012, for an anticipated sales release in February 2013. First occupations are expected by August 2013.
