Potential buyers will be able to meet developer McCarthy & Stone next week to talk about Gilbert Place, for over-70s...

McCarthy Stone has announced that retirees in Swindon will be able to make the most of their first opportunity to reserve an apartment at its Gilbert Place Retirement Living Plus at an exclusive sales launch on Tuesday 5 October.

Prospective purchasers are invited to the Swindon Marriott Hotel on Pipers Way. Bookings are by appointment only, and retirees are urged to call 0800 310 0383 to secure their place and avoid missing out.

As well as the opportunity to meet the team behind the development and take a closer look at floor plans, specifications, and prices, guests who attend the event will also be able to make the most of their first opportunity to reserve their chosen apartment off-plan and enjoy the pick of the plots at Gilbert Place.

When complete, Gilbert Place will comprise of a host of one- and two-bedroom apartments for the over-70s, with the first occupants expected in early 2022.

Verity McKay, divisional marketing manager at McCarthy Stone Southern, said: “We’re very proud of the new communities we create and the many benefits they bring for today’s retirees. Whether people are looking for an independent, low maintenance lifestyle with more time to do the things they enjoy or have always wanted to try, or they are looking for the comfort that comes with being surrounded by like-minded individuals and having a friendly face on-hand throughout the day – Gilbert Place will more than meet their needs.

“The challenges so many of us have faced over the last 18 months or so have undoubtedly made many people reassess their housing needs, and we expect to experience high levels of demand for the apartments at Gilbert Place. I would therefore urge interested purchasers to get in touch and book a place at our exclusive sales launch event – these are allocated on a first come first served basis.”

Future homeowners at the Gilbert Place Retirement Living Plus development will have access to a welcoming homeowners’ lounge, which will be perfect for socialising with new neighbours, landscaped gardens maintained by McCarthy Stone’s team, and a handy guest suite for when family and friends come to stay.

For those who may require a little additional help, Gilbert Place will also have an on-site estate manager and an experienced team will be on hand day and night to oversee the running of the development, and to provide tailored domestic support packages to suit individual needs. The development will also feature its own bistro-style restaurant serving delicious, freshly prepared meals every day, while secure entry systems and 24-hour emergency call points will provide added peace-of-mind.

More than nine out of 10 customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full 5-Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 16 years’ running. McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 16 consecutive years, which is every year the awards have been run.
