Upcoming Warwickshire New Retirement Development Named

Posted 13 September 2023 by Keith Osborne

McCarthy Stone has named a new retirement development in Stratford-upon-Avon, going on sale next year...

A new retirement development coming soon to Stratford-upon-Avon has been named in recognition of the local and world’s most-famous writer, William Shakespeare.

McCarthy Stone has announced that its new Retirement Living development on Alcester Road will be known as Romeo Place, chosen in homage to one of the most beloved characters from the town’s playwright. As well as the name, the development’s connection with the playwright is made even more significant with it being located nearby to the site of Shakespeare’s final home, which he lived in for 19 years.

McCarthy Stone has also released CGI images of the new development, with construction starting this month on the 22 one-bedroom and 33 two-bedroom apartments designed specifically to meet the needs of over-60s. Properties will be available to reserve from February 2024.

Louise Flynn, divisional marketing manager for McCarthy Stone Midlands, said: “The life and work of playwright William Shakespeare is known around the whole world, with his work being translated into over 100 different languages. We are delighted to be honouring one of his most famous characters, and its creator, through the naming of our new retirement community.”

Located on the outskirts of town with good, convenient transport links, plenty of attractive green spaces, including a short walk to the Great Garden, part of Shakespeare’s estate, Romeo Place will offer well-appointed, low-maintenance apartments that have been designed to meet the specific needs of over-60s who will also be able to enjoy an on-site communal lounge – ideal for making new friends – as well as be able to relax in the landscaped gardens. A 24/7 emergency call system and door-camera entry system will help keep homeowners safe while a house manager will also be on-site during office hours.

Properties will be available for outright purchase or part-buy, part-rent. Find out more about current McCarthy Stone developments in Warwickshire.
