The Blaby McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living development is perfect for those over 60 who enjoy the small town life, but still want access to a big city. There are 25 one bedroom apartments and 15 two bedroom apartments available, all of which include a fully fitted kitchen, a bathroom with heated towel rails and a fitted wardrobe. The apartments boast energy efficient heating and raised height electrical sockets. The two-bedroom apartments also have an electric kitchen window.
Homeowners can enjoy all that Retirement Living has to offer, such as the inviting homeowners' lounge and landscaped gardens. Visitors are more than welcome, with a private guest suite and parking available on site. Safety is taken care of with a 24-hour emergency call system, house manager, intruder alarms and a camera entry system. Fire detection equipment is also available. For those with limited mobility, there is lift access to all floors.
Blaby offers easy transport links to Leicester, the nearby Fosse Shopping Park and further afield. South Wigston or Narborough are the closest train stations and there are several bus stations within easy walking distance.
Key dates for your diary
With planning permission now achieved, construction is due to commence in Summer 2016, with an expected sales release in Spring 2017. We look forward to welcoming our first homeowners in Summer 2017.
Blaby may be a little charming suburb, but it still has everything you need. In the village itself you'll find shops and all your everyday amenities, and its close proximity to Leicester means anything else is just a few miles away. Blaby has a distinct 'old world' feel to it, and is home to some beautiful ancient buildings such as The Bakers Arms, a pub dating back to 1485.
There are several green parks in Blaby that make for great walks in nice weather. Bouskell Park is set on the ruins of a medieval village and features a 19th century ice house, while Northfield Park is used more for sports such as football and cricket, as well as community events.
One of Britain's biggest out-of-town shopping centres, Fosse Park, is less than 2 miles from the development and offers over 30 stores (including Marks & Spencer, Boots and WH Smith) and several restaurants. In Blaby itself, you have a variety of dining options, from local cafes to restaurants and any of the five pubs. If you're after an escape from the big smoke (but still like to duck in from time to time), Blaby is the spot for you!
