Just 15 miles south of the historic city of Chester, Malpas is an affluent village and a wonderful place to live. The McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living development is right in the heart of this small town, which means you're within walking distance to the local bakery, deli, and Co-op store. The development itself is home to a close-knit community, with just 12 one bedroom and 15 two bedroom apartments available for those over 60.
The apartments feature fully fitted kitchens with double glazed windows for energy efficient heating. There are two Sky/Sky+ connection points in the living room and bedroom, as well as telephone connection. Selected apartments also feature walk-in wardrobes. Enjoy the exclusive homeowners' lounge and invite visitors to stay overnight in the dedicated guest suite. There is also a house Manager on site and a 24-hour emergency system installed in every apartment. For those with limited mobility, you'll be well looked after ' there's an on-site scooter store, car parking for permit holders and lift access to all floors.
The development is just moments from a pharmacy, dry cleaners, post office and Malpas high street boasts a health centre, dentist, pubs and restaurants, and a church. Just opposite the development is the Malpas surgery and gorgeous views of the sweeping Malpas countryside.
Key dates for your diary
Construction start date, sales release and first occupation are still to be confirmed and are subject to planning permission.
A friendly village in south west Cheshire, Malpas offers the best of both worlds ' it's within easy distance to Chester and Liverpool, but also small enough so that you really feel a part of the local community. Pick up fresh farm produce and browse handmade crafts from resident artists at the popular farmers market, held on the third Saturday of every month, or take part in some of the town events or seasonal festivities. Cholmondeley Castle is a short drive away and is a great day trip as you can wander around the world-famous gardens and lakes and see the farm animals and birds.
It's easy to get out and about from Malpas ' there's a bus station less than half a mile from the development with direct services to Chester and Whitchurch. Liverpool is an hour's drive from Malpas or a train ride from Chester.
