Retired people are invited to an exclusive opportunity to experience what it is like to be a homeowner at McCarthy Stone’s Gilbert Place in Swindon.

The Retirement Living Plus development is to open its doors for what is billed as an extra special ‘Autumn Extravaganza’ Open Week.

Those who attend between Tuesday, 27 September and Saturday, 1 October, from 11am until 5pm, are promised delicious coffee and cake, a tour of the development’s social spaces and show apartments and the opportunity to meet the team and find out about the low-maintenance and social lifestyle on offer at the Lowry Way development. 

Retirees are also invited to join homeowners for lunch at the on-site bistro and receive a complimentary three-course meal courtesy of McCarthy Stone. 

To secure a place and a spot for lunch, people must to book in advance by calling 0800 153 3076. 

Nicki Beswarick, Divisional Marketing Manager at McCarthy Stone Southern, said: “We are incredibly excited to welcome local retirees to Gilbert Place and offer them an exclusive opportunity to experience the independent and sociable lifestyle on offer at a McCarthy Stone development.

“Interest in Gilbert Place has been high amongst retirees who are keen to explore the many benefits of downsizing, as well as see what it is like to become part of a connected community. 

“That’s why we are hosting a special Autumn Extravaganza Open Week - as well as joining us for a slice of cake and a hot drink or a spot of lunch, local retirees can also have a tour of the development and ask the friendly team any questions they may have.”

Gilbert Place has one and two-bedroom apartments exclusively designed for the over-70s. 

Homeowners at the Gilbert Place Retirement Living Plus development have access to a welcoming communal lounge, landscaped gardens maintained by McCarthy Stone’s team, and a guest suite for when family and friends come to stay. 

For those who may require a little additional help, Gilbert Place also has an on-site Estate Manager, and an experienced team 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 also features its own bistro style restaurant serving freshly prepared meals every day, while secure entry systems and 24-hour emergency call points provide added peace-of-mind.

Prices at Gilbert Place currently start from £240,000 for a one-bedroom apartment and £330,000 for a two-bedroom apartment. Rental and part-buy, part-rent options are also available to make moving easier.

The firm says 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. 

McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this rating every year it has taken part in the survey.
