Construction work on 59 new retirement homes in Kettering is well underway.

The new development, located on St Mary’s Road, will comprise a mix of one and two bedroom privately owned apartments exclusively for the over 60s.

McCarthy & Stone are the developers behind the construction of the 59 new ‘Later Living’ properties.

Those looking to buy an apartment off plan can register their interest with the developers and will receive information about the properties available.

Gill Sabin, regional sales and marketing 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 development marks an exciting milestone in helping the over 60s in Kettering 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.”

The company said that its Later Living developments “offer the independence of retaining home ownership while living in an apartment specifically designed for later life. Facilities will include a shared lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a lift.”

Properties will also have a dedicated house manager and the development will have a security entrance system, plus 24-hour emergency call points.

As well as offering the properties, the developer also provides a range of financial services, including a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.
