Hampton is a growing township a few miles to the south of historic cathedral city Peterborough, in the picturesque county of Cambridgeshire. Footpaths wind around the beautiful green spaces and lakes that surround the new-build homes. Served by the Serpentine Green shopping centre, this township is an ideal place to downsize and enjoy a comfortable retirement in one of our McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living apartments.
There will be 45 modern one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments available in the proposed development for over-60s, each featuring a fully fitted kitchen, double-glazing and an integrated fridge-freezer. Relax in one of the spacious living rooms and sleep soundly in the state-of-the-art bedrooms, thanks to the peace of mind afforded by an intruder alarm and camera entry system.
The double-glazed windows will keep you cosy during the winter months, but when the weather is fine you will be able to enjoy the property's exclusive landscaped gardens and communal areas. Footpaths connect the neighbourhood with its own local shops. And for those looking for something larger, the Serpentine Green shopping centre is only 450m away from the proposed development's site, containing a large Tesco Extra hypermarket, a Boots, WHSmith, Costa Coffee and Mothercare. A healthcare centre, a hairdresser's and a GP's office can also be found at Serpentine Green.
Hampton Avenue, the road accessing the property once completed, will be a shaded, green thoroughfare, lined with trees and with large footpaths for residents to take into town. On the other side of the property is London Road, providing easy access to nearby restaurants such as a Toby Carvery and Frankie & Benny's, as well as a Premier Inn that's ideal for visitors. There is also a Vivacity Fitness club a short walk down London Road.
The Hampton area is under continuing development. In fact, since 1997 up to 500 homes have been built each year. A new site is currently under construction near the McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living property which, when completed, will contain an Aldi, a Costa Coffee and a Greene King public house.
Hampton's many lakes and canals are all accessible thanks to footpaths and bridges, dotted with convenient benches. Residents can sit and watch the local wildlife, such as swans and ducks, gliding around the 2,500-acre Hamptons site from lake to lake.
Hampton is an exciting new township, which combines modern town-planning techniques with nature conservation. Surrounded on all sides by picturesque lakes and green spaces, Hampton's countryside outlook belies its ease of access to nearby Peterborough, or even London, via the A1 and London Road.
