Further details about the developer's new Later Living development have been revealed.
It follows the release of an artist's impression of the forthcoming development on Friargate in Penrith.
The visual illustrates just how the site will look when it is completed in summer 2014. Construction is due to commence this June and when finished will offer 48 one and two bedroom Later Living apartments exclusively for the over 60s.
Fiona Brooks, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, comments: "Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling. Our new development in Penrith is designed to do just that and we hope releasing this image will help start bringing it to life for people living locally."
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.
