The specification of our apartments vary to a degree with each apartment in every development, but this will give you an idea of what you'll find within a new one bedroom McCarthy & Stone retirement apartment.
We are pleased to announce that the Llanishen Retirement Living plus development is now under construction. Plans and prices are to be released in autumn 2018, and we look forward to welcoming our first homeowners in winter 2018.
Ideally located in the popular, leafy village of Llanishen, the development will feature 52 spacious and comfortable Retirement Living plus apartments ideal for the over 70s. Retirement Living plus means that you'll have access to on-site facilities like the Bistro, which serves hot and cold meals, snacks and drinks for those who don't want to cook, or are unable to. There's also a communal lounge area and a wellbeing suite.
The assisted living apartments are specially designed for retirees over 70 who want to maintain their independence with the reassurance that there's always someone close to hand who can provide assistance. 24 hour staffing and an emergency call system ensures around-the-clock assistance for any resident should they need it.
Safety and security is ensured throughout the development, with a camera entry system, intruder alarms, and fire detection sensors in all homes and communal areas. The development features wheelchair access and lifts to all floors to aid those with limited mobility.
Each high quality apartment features a specially modified kitchen with easily accessible appliances, and a bathroom with walk-in shower and slip-resistant tiling. Some featured apartments also have balconies overlooking the landscaped gardens.
Every resident will have full access to the communal spaces, including a resident's lounge with WiFi, attractive landscaped gardens, on-site car parking for permit holders, and a Guest Suite where visitors can spend the night.
Llanishen is a pleasant and peaceful suburb north of Cardiff, with great public transport connections to Cardiff city centre and to the M4 motorway. Llanishen village high street is only 0.2 miles from the development, where you will find a Post Office, a Co-operative Food supermarket, a hair salon, and plenty of welcoming pubs, cafes and newsagents.
The village also has a doctor's surgery, a pharmacy, a library, a florist, and plenty of other local amenities. There is a Harvester restaurant located just across the road from the McCarthy & Stone development, which serves delicious pub meals and roast dinners.
Llanishen Park is a lovely green space just a ten minute stroll from the complex, where residents can get back to nature. Gleider Field is even closer to home, and a perfect spot to cheer on local sports teams during the weekend and through the summer months.
Bannatyne Health Club and Spa is less than half a mile from the development, where residents can enjoy a pampering spa experience or take a dip in the heated swimming pool. You'll also find a shopping complex close by, with plenty of branded shops like Laura Ashley, Boots, Home Sense and M&S Simply Food, if you're in need of some retail therapy.
Llanishen train station is only 0.7 miles from the complex, with regular connections to Cardiff Central in only 12 minutes. Buses also run from outside the leisure centre, so residents can enjoy the huge range of shops, attractions and events in Wales' capital city.
