The Billericay Assisted Living development is ideal for those over 70 who are looking to move a little further afield from London. Located 30 minutes from Southend-On-Sea, Billericay is still close to the capital and easily accessible by bus, train or car.
The development boasts 38 one bedroom and 22 two bedroom apartments, all of which include a modern master bedroom, kitchen and living room. Homeowners can relax in the Club Lounge and visitors can stay overnight in the guest suite. An on-site car park is available, while the two landscaped gardens are a great place to unwind. The development is well equipped with fire detection equipment, intruder alarms and a 24-hour emergency call system.
Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed and are subject to planning permission.
Billericay is a lovely Essex town, known for its rich history and green open spaces. There are many period houses from the Georgian and Tudor eras, such as the former library, Burghstead Lodge, in the high street, which is one of the best examples of the architectural style. You can even download a map for a self-guided historic building walk! Just opposite the McCarthy & Stone development is the Billericay Cricket Club and Football Club, and the nearby 40-acre Lake Meadows parks makes for a nice leisurely stroll.
One of Billericay's best-kept secrets is Norsey Wood, a 165-acre woodland that dates back 4000 years. You'll find lots of wildlife, flora and easy walking trails.
There's always something to do in Billericay. You'll find most of the shops, restaurants and friendly pubs just a stone's through away on the high street, including a supermarket and several banks. Community events such as markets, shows and exhibitions are held on a regular basis, both in Billericay itself and in the surrounding towns. It's easy to get around, with a bus stop just 0.1 miles from your own front door.
