Sitting close to the heart of Portobello, the new McCarthy & Stone Retirement Living development is a waterside haven in Edinburgh. Just 3 miles east of Edinburgh's city centre, Portobello is a historical seaside town with a large sandy beach and a busy, lively promenade filled with shops and restaurants.

This modern Retirement Living development is available exclusively for those over 60 and features 20 one bedroom apartments and 22 two bedroom apartments. The luxurious and stylish complex also boasts landscaped gardens, a guest suite for visitors and a homeowners' lounge. The apartments are equipped with a 24-hour emergency system, laundry, lifts to all floors and on-site car parking. Homeowners can also enjoy the lovely bright sun room and roof terrace with scenic views out to Scotland's Firth of Forth.

The town itself also has excellent bus services, with several routes heading to Edinburgh city centre and further afield. The McCarthy & Stone development is also located on one of Portobello's main roads making it easily accessible by car from the coastal A199. 

Key dates for your diary

At this stage, we anticipate that construction will commence in the Spring of 2016, with plans and prices available early in 2017. We will be welcoming our first homeowners in the Summer of 2017.

Local area

With its wide two-mile beach, local events and activities, and a strong community spirit, Portobello is a popular holiday destination for Scots. Once a favourite haunt amongst seafarers and smugglers in the 18th century, Portobello is today a bustling hive of activity, both along the seafront promenade and the stylish high street, packed with independent shops, cafes and restaurants.

Swimming and water activities are obviously very popular in this resort town ' here you can find one of the few remaining Turkish Baths in Scotland, located in the local swimming centre. If you're looking to get active, you can join the Portobello Kayaking and Sailing Club, or Row Porty, a community-run coastal rowing club. Otherwise, you can sit back, relax and watch the pros take to the sand at the frequent international volleyball competitions and triathlon events. The annual Big Beach Busk is a fun summer event where hundreds of musicians bring music and dancing to the streets of Portobello.

The area also has great shopping and lots of charming eateries, including great seafood restaurants and friendly local pubs. A monthly market is held in Brighton Park where you can pick up fresh local produce and one-off arts and crafts. Take in the town's elegant Georgian and Victorian architecture with a walk up the high street or spend some downtime in any of the lovely green parks. Portobello is a great seaside suburb just outside of the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh!
