A beautiful and cosy retirement home just for you
If you are looking for the perfect retirement home in an ideal location, there is still time to buy a magnificent property at Silver Sands Court, the McCarthy and Stone development in the charming village of Bembridge.
Although more than 80 percent of the outstanding one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments at Silver Sands Court have now been sold, it is not too late to go along and choose a property that has been specifically designed to make living easier, and that has been built to the highest standards.
Those are just two of the reasons why McCarthy and Stone have been awarded the 5-star rating for customer satisfaction in an independent survey by the Home Builders Federation every year since the awards began.
They are the only housebuilder of any size or type to ever achieve this, and it is down to their 40 years’ experience of building outstanding apartments in prime locations to suit all lifestyles and stages of retirement.
The picturesque Silver Sands Court development is made up of 40 one and two bedroom properties, some with sea views, and within easy reach of the all the village’s amenities and attractions, including the famous Bembridge Windmill – the only remaining windmill on the Island – and the popular Bembridge RNLI Station. There is also a host of traditional small shops within walking distance that offer an excellent range of everyday goods, ranging from locally caught fish to freshly baked bread.
The flat terrain of Bembridge makes it the perfect location to take a stroll to enjoy the stunning views of Bembridge, its harbour and across the Solent and beyond, with safe bathing for those who like to dip their toes!
At Silver Sands Court you don’t have to worry about such things as the upkeep of gardens and grounds, the cleaning of communal windows and repairs and maintenance to interior and exterior communal areas, as they, along with many other facilities, are covered by the service charge. There is also a 24-hour emergency call system for all residents.
There is an inviting community feel to Silver Sands Court that many are already enjoying. That was highlighted recently when home owners and staff welcomed local people to their vintage-inspired tea party to raise money for older people’s charity, Royal Voluntary Service.
Guests took a trip back in time as they tucked into tasty treats including tea and cucumber sandwiches, along with homemade cakes and scones.
The special event helped McCarthy and Stone raise a fantastic £438 for Royal Voluntary Service. To mark its 40th year, McCarthy and Stone is partnering with Royal Voluntary Service on a series of events in 2017, with the aim of raising over £130,000 in support of projects across the Isle of Wight, and the rest of the country.
So maybe this is the perfect time to join in with the wonderful experiences that await you at Silver Sands Court, with one-bedroom apartments still available from £260,500, and two-bedroom apartments from £371,500.
