The latest McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living development is located in Hanham, a lovely little town a few miles east of Bristol city centre. Our proposed development will feature 29 contemporary one-bedroom apartments and 27 spacious two-bedroom apartments available exclusively for those over 60. Enjoy a prime location on a quiet residential street, with sweeping views over Hanham-s nature reserves and within walking distance of all of the town-s local amenities.
Currently subject to planning, our stylish apartments will boast a fully fitted kitchen and shower room, a 24-hour emergency call system and underfloor heating. We-ve designed everything with your comfort in mind - many apartments have sunny balconies and views across the Magpie Bottom Nature Reserve, where you can often see local wildlife and flora. The proposed development will also have ample parking with 33 spaces for permit-holders. Enjoy walking around the landscaped gardens and you can invite visitors to stay overnight in the exclusive guest suite. We also have a dedicated house manager available at all times if any issues arise.
You-ll be well within reach of Hanham-s amenities, with a bank, hairdresser, Methodist church and post office less than 500m away. A bus stop is located just down the road from the proposed development, and there is a pharmacy and doctors surgery half a mile away. The local hospital is under 2 miles away.
Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed.
Hanham is conveniently placed between Bristol, Bath and Keynsham, making it a lovely place to live and explore the surrounding area. Our proposed development will have access to the town-s high street, which has a number of independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants, including a bakery, post office, optician and dentist. Aside from its great shopping opportunities, Hanham is also known for its strong community spirit and often puts on many fun events - for example, the nearby Community Centre (450m from our Retirement Living development) holds twice-monthly tea dances and the popular Little Pickles Market.
There are also a range of beautiful nature reserves and green parks for you to enjoy - our proposed development will overlook the Magpie Bottom Nature Reserve, a Site of Major Conservation Interest, and will be located near Conham River Park and Eastwood Farm Nature Reserve. Kingswood Leisure Centre is just two miles (about a 10 minute drive) away, where you can find a pool, gym and fitness classes catering to all ages and levels.
For days out, it-s easy to get into Bristol to spend a few hours shopping, eating and visiting museums and attractions such as Brunel-s SS Great Britain, Bristol City Museum & Art Gallery, and the famous Bristol Zoo. To reach Bristol from Hanham, it-s either a short drive or a 40-minute bus ride from the station at the bottom of the street.
