Work Gets Under Way On New Whitby Retirement Community

Work has started on the construction of a prestigious new retirement development in Whitby.

The UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, McCarthy Stone, is creating 60 one and two-bedroom spacious retirement apartments at the site just off Stakesby Road.

The apartments will be available for off-plan sales in early summer 2024 while the first homeowners are expected to move in during Winter 2024.  Each low-maintenance apartment will feature a high-specification kitchen and bathroom along with generously proportioned living areas, allowing homeowners to discover hassle-free independent living. 

Louise Flynn, Divisional Marketing Manager at McCarthy Stone, said: “Whitby offers some of the most beautiful scenery anywhere in the UK and provides the perfect backdrop for a fulfilling retirement. Less than a mile from the sea front, and close to a range of independent shops, we are expecting significant interest in Retirement Living here in Whitby and would urge anyone interested to contact us as soon as they can to find out more.”

Mark Turner, Senior Site Manager at McCarthy Stone, said: “We are delighted to be starting work on our brand new Retirement Living development here in Whitby. Over the next few months, the development will begin to take shape and we are looking forward to embedding into the existing and thriving community.”

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of tourists, on-site facilities are set to include a communal lounge hosting regular events and providing the opportunity to make new friends, as well as well-maintained, tastefully landscaped gardens, and a hotel-style guest suite enabling visitors to enjoy an overnight stay. A house manager will be on-site during office hours, while a 24/7 emergency call system and camera entry system means homeowners can feel safe and secure.

The Retirement Living development is perfectly situated with the beach to the north, while near the Harbour in the east and train station in the southeast. 

More than nine out of 10 customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation. McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this rating every year we have taken part in the survey.
