Retirement homes scheme underway
RETIREMENT property specialist McCarthy & Stone has started construction work on 36 new Later Living properties in Kirkby Lonsdale, near Ingleton.
The new development, located on Tram Lane, marks a designmilestone for McCarthy & Stone, as it is the first site entirely constructed to recommendations made in the Housing our Ageing Population: Panel for Innovation (HAPPI) report, published in 2009.
Comprising a mix of one and two-bedroom apartments exclusively for the over 60s, the pioneering design of the Kirkby Lonsdale development also offers walk-in wardrobes, retractable walls and an accessible balcony that brings the outdoors in for apartment dwellers. www. mccarthyandstone.co.uk
