Dare to Downsize

McCarthy and Stone’s new Mill Gardens and
Farnham House development in Quorn

According to the latest report by Homes for Later Living, approximately three million people in the UK over 65 are looking to downsize, and with its Healthier and Happier report also revealing that the average person aged 80 living in a retirement community feels as good as someone 10 years younger, there is obviously something to be said for making that move in later life.

Downsizing offers many benefits to retirees who are looking to live life to the full and make the most of their retirement years.

Not only can it help to take away the burden of maintenance and chores, but it enables you to free up your time to spend it enjoying the things you really love.

McCarthy and Stone’s new Mill Gardens and Farnham House development in Quorn has been designed to offer just that. In addition to a choice of thoughtfully designed bungalows and apartments, they will offer a warm and welcoming community with the option for privacy when you need it.

Farnham House apartments will benefit from a 24/7 call system and camera entry system, as well as a House Manager to provide that extra peace of mind when it comes to safety and security, along with a stylish homeowners’ lounge, hotel-style guest suite and landscaped gardens. Each individual freehold property at Mill Gardens will also enjoy its own private rear garden and a driveway with maintained front gardens, and selected bungalows will also have a garage. Those who are interested in finding out more can arrange an appointment-only visit to the development’s new show complex, opening on 24th November. Each one-toone appointment will be managed with the safety of visitors in mind and all those who attend can take a tour of a one- and two-bedroom apartment, as well as a twobedroom bungalow. They will also receive an information pack which contains a brochure, floor plans, prices, and service charges details. There will be an opportunity for retirees to make a reservation and secure their stake in Mill Gardens or Farnham House should they wish.

Prices for a one-bedroom bungalow at Mill Gardens start at £249,950, with prices for a two-bedroom bungalow starting at £379,950. Prices for a one-bedroom apartment at Farnham House start at £194,950 and from £319,950 for a two-bedroom apartment.
