Award Winning Quality

Whatever age you are, you want to make the most out of life. To enjoy the things you’ve always enjoyed, with the family and friends you love. Our retirement apartments allow you to do just that.

Life, well lived

McCarthy Stone creates award-winning retirement properties for sale or for rent — but the homeowners turn these developments into vibrant communities.

One of the greatest benefits of being a McCarthy Stone homeowner is becoming part of a community of remarkable individuals, who embody a ‘life, well lived’. Life, well lived is about friendship, companionship and love. It’s about new experiences. New adventures. Looking forwards, while making the most of the here and now. That’s what McCarthy Stone is all about.

“It’s our little bit of paradise!” Pat Harris, Imber Court
