This development is under construction. The specification of our retirement apartments does 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 two bedroom McCarthy & Stone apartment.
Award-winning builders McCarthy & Stone have secured a new Retirement Living plus development in Chelmsford, Essex – 32 miles north-east of London. The development proposes 58 stylish one and two bedroom apartments exclusively for those over 70. If you like to be close to the capital, but still far enough away to relax during retirement, then Chelmsford is the ideal spot, with its grand cathedral, peaceful parks and major racecourse.
The proposed Retirement Living plus development will feature spacious, contemporary apartments designed to make life that little bit easier. You'll have everything you need on site, including a Club Lounge with complimentary Wi-Fi and a Guest Suite so visitors can stay overnight. Enjoy the landscaped gardens, private car park and lifts to all floors. For that extra peace of mind, all apartments will be equipped with fire detection equipment, intruder alarms and a camera entry system. Our Retirement Living plus properties offer an extra level of comfort with a dedicated Estates Manager and 24-hour emergency call system.
The proposed development will be well situated in town, with a supermarket just 0.1 miles away, and local high street shops 1.2 miles away. It's also easy to go into London for the day – Chelmsford train station is a short drive from your front door (1.4 miles) and offers a direct service to Liverpool Street Station in just over half an hour.
Chelmsford is officially Essex's only city, and has plenty of things to see and do all year round. Given its close proximity to London, Chelmsford has become a popular place to live for commuters and those looking to be close to the capital. But Chelmsford is also a destination in its own right, with everything from museums to a grand 15th-century cathedral. The beautiful Grade ii-listed Hylands House is just 4 miles from our proposed development and boasts over 500 acres of gorgeous parkland and gardens to explore. Another must-see is the Chelmsford Museum, which details the history of the city and surrounding area, taking you all the way from the Ice Age to modern day. If you have family visiting, why not visit Tropical Wings Zoo, one of the finest tropical houses in the UK? Get up close to butterflies, birds and wildlife, while kids can have a turn feeding wallabies or birds of prey
