Over-70s Apartments Launched Off-Plan In Shirley

Posted 24 May 2022 by Keith Osborne

McCarthy Stone has launched a collection of brand new one- and two-bedroom apartments at Wheatley Place...

Retirees in Shirley can now reserve one of the brand new apartments at McCarthy Stone’s Wheatley Place Retirement Living Plus development on Stratford Road.

The one- and two-bedroom apartments at the new retirement community are under construction with the first homeowners expected to move in this summer. Each individual property is designed to meet the needs of the over 70s, featuring spacious living areas and a high-specification kitchen and bathroom. One-bedroom apartments can be purchased from £224,950, while two-bedroom homes start at £299,950. There’s a rental option too, priced from £2,205 and £2,785 per calendar month for one- and two-bedroom homes respectively. This includes the service charge.

Potential buyers can now make an appointment to take a tour of the communal areas, which include an on-site bistro, arts & crafts room, wellness spa and communal lounge, bar and private dining room. Once complete, Wheatley Place will also feature a roof terrace, exercise studio and landscaped gardens, perfect for evening cocktails and lazy afternoons with friends.

Cheryl Bissett, divisional sales and marketing director for McCarthy Stone, commented: “We’re very excited to announce that the wait is over for Shirley over-70s and they can now reserve a stylish apartment at Wheatley Place.

“Wheatley Place is set to become a thriving new community of those looking for a life well lived. Homeowners can enjoy socialising with others in the luxurious lounge, taking some time out in the spa-style wellness suite with a massage or beauty treatment, join an activity in the arts and craft room or simply relax in the privacy of their own apartment, plus much more. If that’s not enough, there are also a host of shops, restaurants and amenities right on the doorstep.

“We’re already experiencing lots of interest in this exciting new development so would encourage anyone looking to find out more, so register their interest now.”

Wheatley Place offers a low-maintenance style of living including a manager on site 24/7 and the option of tailored personal care, so homeowners can focus on doing what they love, rather than worrying about the chores. Pets are also welcome.

A suburb of Solihull lying nine miles southeast of Birmingham city centre, Shirley is a quiet residential neighbourhood with excellent shopping opportunities. A short bus ride away is a small shopping centre that has all day-to-day needs covered, and within half-a-mile there's a large supermarket and retail park, with Shirley's main high street area only a mile away.

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.
