Britain's leading retirement specialist has taken inspiration from the local area to decide on the name for its new scheme.

  • With construction underway on the 37 one and two bedroom Later Living apartments on Wharf Street in Devizes, McCarthy & Stone has decided to name the development Anstie Court, after John Anstie - a cloth manufacturer from the town.

    Anstie was one of the first cloth manufacturers to discontinue the established practice of weavers working in their cottages, when he built his factory on the corner of New Park and Snuff Streets to house over 300 looms.

    His fine cloth was in great demand and many European monarchs wore Devizes cassimere, making the town famous for its cloth production.

    Aileen King, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, commented: "We pride ourselves on building communities and not just homes, so we always aim to select names for our new developments that will have real meaning to the local residents. As with all McCarthy & Stone developments, Anstie Court will offer independence combined with the peace of mind of additional security, low maintenance and companionship.

    "And with stylish designs tailored specifically for the over 60s and an attractive location with access to a range of everyday amenities - Anstie Court ticks all the boxes. I'd encourage prospective buyers to register their interest to avoid disappointment."

    Anstie Court is ideally located on Wharf Street, overlooking the Kennet and Avon Canal, and a short walk from the town's shops and amenities.

    It features 24 hour personal emergency call service and a camera TV entry system for added security. A relaxed community feel is created through the provision of a residents lounge and extensive landscaped gardens, with visiting family and friends also being provided for in the development's guest suite.
