The UK’s leading retirement housebuilder, McCarthy and Stone, is inviting Wroughton retirees to explore the benefits of downsizing at a special information day for its latest development, Banks Place, on Wednesday 17th January between 11am and 3pm.

Currently under construction, the Banks Place info day is in response to high-demand for the 38 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments, which are already attracting significant levels of interest.

Available to buy off plan from February, guests at the event will be among the first to find out about apartment specifications and layouts; and for those keen to secure first choice of the plots, priority appointments can be booked ahead.

Attendees are invited to Alexandra House on Whittingham Drive, in Wroughton between 11am and 3pm, to enjoy light refreshments, with advisors on hand to answer any questions potential purchasers may have, and so they can get a real taste for the many lifestyle benefits on offer there.

Kim Caldwell, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone, comments: “Our new Retirement Living development in Wroughton designed exclusively for people aged 60 and over, will feature a choice of high quality apartments designed to suit those who want to enjoy a full and active retirement.

“We recently commissioned a study which highlighted that almost 50% of pensioners in the UK (5.7 million people aged over 65), are considering moving to smaller homes , or would be encouraged to do so with a stamp duty exemption. In Wroughton we believe this type of scheme which benefits from a fantastic central location, represents a great opportunity to fulfil a housing need in the area, and which will form part of a varied offering to older people, and those looking to downsize there.

“With so many amenities right on their doorstep, Wroughton offers the perfect combination of rural living, while being just a short walk away from the village centre where supermarkets, cafes and shops can be found. Homeowners will have the freedom to live as independent a life as they ever have, in a most glorious of settings, and with all the latest mod-cons and high specification fittings and fixtures. Plus, all the maintenance is taken care of by an expert team, including the landscaped gardens.”

With the information day at Banks Place so highly anticipated, local retirees interested in hearing more about the development to pop along with friends or family members if they like, and make the most of this great opportunity to buy a stunning new retirement apartment in Wroughton.
