Final Chances At Two Hertfordshire Retirement Communities

Posted 24 June 2022 by Keith Osborne

McCarthy Stone has two retirement developments in Hertfordshire that each have just one home remaining for sale...

Homeowners at two of McCarthy Stone’s Hertfordshire development are looking to find ‘the missing piece of their puzzle’ to complete their vibrant communities in sought-after locations in the county.

With over 90% of the age-exclusive apartments at The Apartments at Royal Gardens on Seymour Road, Buntingford now sold, there is just one luxury property remaining at the retirement community for the over-60s. Local retirees are being urged to explore their last chance to join the set-up there, with the development’s tenants excited to welcome some fresh faces and complete what is an already thriving community.

Sam Watkins, divisional sales director at McCarthy Stone, added: “The Apartments at Royal Gardens has been a popular development in the local area owing to its wonderful location and proximity to public transport, shops, and restaurants. For over-60s considering downsizing but mindful of losing their independence, the development is an incredibly attractive option – we have a fantastic community here already and can’t wait to add to it.”

A house manager takes care of the smooth day-to-day running of the development, and a security entrance system and emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind. The final remaining two-bedroom apartment can be snapped up for £449,000 or rented for £2,550 per month.

Meanwhile, there’s also just one brand new property remaining for sale at Eleanor House Retirement Living Plus development in St Albans for the over-70s. This two-bedroom apartment can be snapped up for £579,000.

Sam Watkins added: “We’re thrilled that the residents at the development have settled in so well and made connections with each other. Everyone at the development in looking forward to welcoming more retirees and I’m sure whoever snaps up the remaining apartments will be made to feel right at home!”
