McCarthy Stone, has announced its new Llanthony Place Retirement Living Plus development on St Ann Way, Gloucester now has 75% of the available apartments now sold.

Llanthony Place and the neighbouring Scudamore Place development, designed for the over 70s and 60s respectively, are located in the centre of the city yet on the doorstep of the Cotswolds, offering all of the benefits of city living with extensive countryside appeal. Homeowners will be right at the heart of one of the city’s most popular areas, The Quays, which is a particular favourite for visitors and locals, offering an eclectic mix of museums, waterside eateries, bars and shops, as well as a wealth of independent and national retailers.

McCarthy Stone is inviting retirees in Gloucester to view its new show complex at its Scudamore Place Retirement Living Plus development. Local retirees are invited to make an appointment for a one-to-one, socially-distanced tour, to take a look at the lifestyle on offer and find out more about how the development can help them get the most out of their retirement years.

Samantha Watkins, deputy divisional sales and marketing director for McCarthy Stone, said: “We have been truly overwhelmed by the fantastic response to Llanthony Place. It’s fantastic to see so many people recognising the benefits of independent, low-maintenance living and who have subsequently started planning to live their retirement to the full in our new community.

“Now more than ever we all want to feel safe and secure in our homes. For many of us, lockdown has made us reassess our housing needs, and we are seeing more retirees deciding to downsize their home. The low-maintenance living available at Llanthony Place and Scudamore Place allows retirees to stay independent for longer, become part of a thriving community and spend their time doing the things they love.”

With safety being the company’s number one priority, the sales consultant at the development will advise visitors on specific practices and additional precautions which have been introduced, such as temperature checks on arrival. Virtual tours are also being made available to help potential purchasers find out more about the developments before arranging a visit.

Scudamore Place and Llanthony Place both feature a homeowners’ lounge which is ideal for socialising with friends and new neighbours, landscaped gardens in which to relax, and a convenient hotel-style guest suite should friends or relatives wish to stay. Llanthony Place also offers an on-site bistro and domestic support packages are available which can be tailored to individual requirements.

Properties at Llanthony Place are available to move into now, with prices for one-bedroom apartments starting from £176,950 and two-bedroom apartments from £249,950. Properties at Scudamore Place are available to purchase off-plan, with one-bedroom apartments priced from £169,950 and two-bedroom apartments from £229,950. In addition, for maximum flexibility, part buy-part rent and full rental options are available.

More than nine out of 10 customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full five-star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation – the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade for 15 consecutive years, which is every year the awards have been run.
