Constructing for two brand-new luxury low-maintenance apartments for pensioners is set to take place this summer.

McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, made the announcement today that the properties will be on Sewardstone Road, Waltham Abbey.

Designed for residents aged 60 and over, the properties will consist of a one and a two-bedroom apartment which are expected to open in November 2020.

Simon Pendlebury, regional sales and marketing director for McCarthy and Stone North London, said: “Our forthcoming Waltham Abbey development has already attracted significant levels of early interest from local people who are interested in downsizing to a lower maintenance property, and have been attracted by its traditional market town location, as well as its extensive array of amenities and popular historical attractions.

“McCarthy and Stone is committed to designing flexible homes which reflect the character of the neighbourhood; while also allowing people to make the most of their retirement years and live as independently as possible, for as long as possible.”

All of the apartments will be fitted-out with a plush, modern kitchen with integrated appliances, panel heaters throughout, spacious and open-plan living areas, and stylish en-suite bathrooms.

New homeowners will also have a communal space including and club lounge to socialise with new neighbours overlooking the landscaped gardens to admire.
