To make the most of your retirement years you want peace of mind, comfort and independence. A McCarthy & Stone retirement apartment will give you all of this and more. And if looking after the maintenance of your house and garden is starting to take up too much time, why not leave the work to someone else? Life is for living.... owning one of these apartments will help you live life to the full.

The developers, McCarthy & Stone, have been building award winning retirement homes for over 25 years and specialise in creating secure and comfortable retirement homes.

Once you step inside one of these delightful apartments you move into a life without security worries. There are call points in every main room which puts you in direct contact with the house manager. In addition, an emergency 24 hour Careline provides round the clock cover for added peace of mind. There is also a camera entry phone system linked to your tv set, letting you see who is at the main entrance door before you decide to let them in and with a smoke detector and intruder alarm in each apartment - all connected to Careline - you will never have felt safer or more secure.

Company when you want it..... freedome when you don't.

Freedom and friends - for most of us, two of the most important things in life. Every retirement apartment provides privacy and independence with its own front door and key. Naturally, post and milk and newspapers can be delivered direct to your door, as you would expect. You can entertain friends and family whenever you want.

Making new friends is easy too. Oakhurst has a strong sense of community and you will find a luxurious residents lounge where you can meet for a coffee and a chat..... if you're in the mood for a little socialising. If you need extra help when friends come to stay, there is a comfortably furnished guest suite with tv, shower room and tea and coffee making facilities, which can be booked at very reasonable rates.

All of the apartments are designed very carefully and not only express and individual character of their own but also blend attractively with their surroundings. The development is located such that, when you step outside, you will find shops and other amenities well located within easy reach. Oakhurst is built within a peaceful and attractive landscaped area offering total relaxation.

Special attention to detail isn't limited to the design of the building and grounds alone. It extends to every aspect of your apartment. Take the kitchen for instance, not only are there colour co-ordinated worktops, tiles and cabinets which are pleasing to the eye, but the kitchen as a whole is designed to be safe, easy and convenient to use. The oven, for example, is located at just the right height to save you bending down and the level taps at the sink are much easier to use than the usual conventional taps.

There is a winning combination of aesthetics and safety in the bathroom too. Tiled and colour co-ordinated, it is specially designed to give you convenience and peace of mind. The bath, for example, has helpful grab rails and easy-grip lever taps - it also features a discreet emergency call button on the side in case you ever need it.

Rather than clutter up your apartment with washing machine, tumble dryer and ironing board, they-re all on hand (and at the right height) in the laundry room.

Let struggling up the stairs become an old memory! Oakhurst has lifts with a difference. Every lift is fitted with an emergency call button linked direct to Careline.

One service charge covers amongst other things, the cost of all external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, buildings insurance, water rates and the heating and lighting for the corridors, residents lounge, laundry room and other communal areas. Just compare your current utility bills and you could see how much you can save. And that's without the added benefits of a 24 hour Careline and a House Manager, all covered by the same, single charge.

Your House Manager is a very reassuring presence. They are there when you need them - and not when you don't. You'll certainly find them helpful in lots of different ways, from keeping an eye on your apartment whilst you are away to answering your day-to-day questions.

When it comes to moving, Godley Kennedy & McCarthy and Stone will be happy to help you sell your existing home. We have team of people trained to assist you with all aspects of moving. McCarthy & Stone can even offer a part exchange scheme and are happy to consider properties that are less or more expensive than the apartment you have chosen.
