MCCARTHY & Stone, the UK's leading developer of retirement apartments, has started construction work on its new Later Living and Assisted Living development in Torquay. Located on Barton Road, it will comprise a mix of one and two bedroom apartments exclusively people over the age of 60.
Apartments will be available to buy off plan from autumn 2014, with first occupations taking place in spring 2015. The new development, situated in Torre, is just a short distance from all the town's shops and amenities which includes the main shopping centre with a range of high street stores, independent retailers, supermarkets and a range of eateries.
Lorena Brown, national sales director for McCarthy & Stone, said: "Everything we do is built around a belief that later life can be rich, rewarding and fulfilling, and starting construction of our Later Living and Assisted Living development marks an exciting milestone in helping the over 60s in Torre make the most of later life.
"When complete, the apartments will be low maintenance in design and will benefit from modern fittings, good security and will have a number of specialist features."
