The retirement developer has revealed the name of its new Later Living scheme as Wellington Court.
The title stems from the Epsom branch of The Ancient Order of Foresters, a friendly society established in 1834 which helped with family finances and today trades as Foresters Friendly Society.
The Epsom branch is one of the oldest friendly societies and was known as Court Wellington because it originally convened in the Duke of Wellington pub on the High Street in the town.
Julie Ward, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, said: "We pride ourselves on building communities and not just apartments, so we always aim to select names for our new developments that will have real meaning to the local residents. Wellington Court in Epsom is clearly steeped in history and we therefore thought it was a fitting name."
McCarthy & Stone is currently building 32 one and two bedroom Later Living apartments, exclusively for people aged 60 and over, at Wellington Court located on Waterloo Road.
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.
People are being invited to register their interest now as work begins on the development. Wellington Court is ideally situated within easy reach of Epsom Train Station and the High Street and has excellent travel links by road and rail to London and the neighbouring towns of Ewell, Ashtead, Banstead and Leatherhead.
Ward added: "Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling. Our new development in Epsom is designed to do just that and we're inviting anyone interested in finding out more to get in touch now."
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 August 2013.
