New retirement apartments on offer in Stratford

Ian Hughes 17th Jan, 2018

A NEW retirement development is being built in Stratford.

The Harvard Place development on Shipston Road will feature 56 one and two-bedroom apartments built by specialist retirement housebuilder McCarthy and Stone.

Construction is already underway and developers this week released an artist’s impression to show how Harvard Place will look when complete.

McCarthy and Stone’s Retirement Living Plus developments aim to bridge the gap between conventional retirement living and residential care.

Homeowners are able to retain their independence in the form of home ownership, yet still have a range of additional 24/7 security and support services.

Harvard Place will include a table service restaurant, a homeowners’ lounge, and lifts to assist with access, as well as landscaped gardens, and a guest suite for when friends and family visit.

A launch event is being held at the Welcombe Hotel on Thursday (January 25) with presentations scheduled for 11am and 2pm. Guests will be the first to find out about apartment specifications and pricing, with properties available to reserve off-plan on the day.

Marketing director Martin Edwards said: “We wanted to choose a name for our new development that was memorable, and would resonate with Stratford residents and future McCarthy and Stone homeowners.

“We expect the first release of apartments at Harvard Place will be highly anticipated. Local retirees interested in securing a high specification, low maintenance home are encouraged to come along and make the most of their first opportunity to reserve off-plan at this stunning new development.”
