Apartments at McCarthy & Stone's new Assisted Living development in Hertfordshire are continuing to sell fast.

  • By

  • Peel Court on College Way in Welwyn Garden City has received off-plan reservations for over 50 per cent of the 59 independent retirement apartments.

    McCarthy & Stone is now urging potential purchasers to act fast in order to snap up their pick of the remaining plots from as little as £239,950.

    Julie Ward, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy & Stone, explained: "The success we've experienced since unveiling our plans for Peel Court clearly signals a strong demand for this kind of specialist retirement housing provision in Hertfordshire. Peel Court is a brilliantly situated development that when complete, will provide a real alternative for older people living locally, bridging the gap between conventional retirement developments and residential care.

    "Those opting to reserve a property early, will not only be able to benefit from having their pick of the apartments, but will also have the opportunity to take advantage of our complimentary Moving Experience initiative, which aims to take much of the hassle and cost of downsizing in later life.

    "By offering one-to-one support and professional advice covering every stage of the moving process, from packing and removals, right down to notifying people of your change of address, our Moving Experience scheme makes the decision to purchase off-plan not only stress-free, but practically enjoyable. With interest so high, we'd urge any prospective purchasers to enquire now so that they can start making the most out of their later years sooner rather than later."

    Through Moving Experience, all purchasers buying an apartment off-plan will be assigned their own professional advisor, who will provide a truly bespoke service throughout the buying and moving process. On hand to explain all elements of the service, offer advice and ensure all personal requirements are met, the professional advisor will meet with purchasers regularly either in the comfort of their own home or at a location of their choosing. The comprehensive service they provide will include practical and financial help with the sale of an existing property, liaison with solicitors on behalf of the purchaser and arrangement of a full decluttering, packing and removals service.

    Assisted Living at Peel Court will offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for the over 70s. In addition, Assisted Living will offer a helping hand through flexible care and support packages, including domestic assistance, that make life that little bit easier.

    Facilities will include a shared lounge, an onsite restaurant, guest suite, laundry room and a lift. A dedicated estate manager will ensure the smooth running of the development and staff will be on site 24 hours a day. There will also be a security entrance system plus 24 hour emergency call points to provide peace of mind for both purchasers and their families. All properties will be low maintenance and energy efficient.

    In addition to offering age exclusive apartments, the McCarthy & Stone also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.
