McCarthy & Stone-Banstead,
This development is subject to planning.
This Retirement Living development will be situated just minutes from Banstead’s bustling yet leafy high street. The proposed new build of one and two bedroom privately-owned apartments will link into a locally listed school building, with the aim of retaining the structure’s traditional feel.
As well as a cosy communal lounge in which homeowners will be able to socialise over a cup of tea or coffee, the plans include a beautiful landscaped garden at the rear, providing a secluded green space for all residents to enjoy. With the land being predominantly flat, getting around will be easy and comfortable, no matter your level of mobility (and there will of course also be lifts to all floors). If you’re looking for a small area of outdoor space to call your own, many of the apartments will even have balconies.
To ensure your comfort, safety and security at all times, there’ll be a House Manager available during office hours, as well as a 24-hour call system for emergencies. For that added peace of mind, there’ll also be a camera entry system that will link to your television so you’ll always know who you’re letting in.
Being so close to Banstead town centre (just 0.1 miles away), you’ll have a wealth of local amenities, from shops and eateries to supermarkets and various medical centres. And getting around won’t be a problem, whatever your preferred mode of transportation. As well as on-site parking, there’ll be both a cycle store and a scooter room. Plus, with four bus stops within a mile of the development and Banstead train station just 0.6 miles away, you’ll easily be able to visit the surrounding local areas or even take a day trip into London.
Although offering a wide variety of shopping – from your favourite chains to independent boutiques – Banstead town centre has managed to retain its quaint village charm. The town is home to a number of buildings of historical interest. The parish church, with its medieval spire, dates back as far as the 12th century, and the town’s old well still features its elaborate 18th-century winding gear!
In the heart of Banstead you’ll find The Banstead Centre, where membership is open to anyone over 50. Here, local residents can meet, socialise and partake in a wide variety of activities, from art classes and bridge games to tai chi and table tennis. The centre also organises special events and outings.
Just 3 miles from the development is the iconic Epsom Downs Racecourse. With race-days having been held in the area since the 1640s, it is truly an iconic racecourse that mustn’t be missed by horseracing fans. Enjoy a day at the races for fun, thrills and some delicious food, whether you’re in the mood for a mouth-watering burger or an elegant fine dining experience.
For a unique day out, Mayfield Lavender is just over 2 miles from the development. This 25-acre organic lavender field is a truly a special place. Wandering among the this vast sea of lavender during the summer months is a delight for the senses. And the picturesque al fresco café is the perfect spot for lunch or coffee and cake.
