Summer offer helps retirees to downsize in Cornwall

Now has never been a better time for retirees looking to move to Cornwall.  McCarthy and Stone is giving retirees the opportunity to live their retirement years to the full, by offering to pay the stamp duty on selected new apartments at its Ocean House Lifestyle Living development on Sea Road in Carlyon Bay and its Pen Morvah Retirement Living development on Bramble Hill in Bude.


Those who take advantage of the offer, which is available for a limited time only, stand to save anything from 2% to 5% of the value of their new apartment, which is the current stamp duty rate for properties worth more than £125,000.


The summer incentive, from the leading manager and developer of retirement communities, is available for eligible buyers at Ocean House and Pen Morvah who reserve before 31st August 2019 and complete no later than 25th October 2019.


It is hoped the offer will encourage retirees from Cornwall – or those looking to move to the area – that now is an ideal time to consider a move to high quality retirement community, which has been specially designed to enrich the lives of retirees.


McCarthy and Stone’s stamp duty paid offer gives even more older people the opportunity to enjoy the lifestyle benefits of a low maintenance Lifestyle Living or Retirement Living apartment.


Full terms and conditions can be found here.

Ciara Hilley, Divisional Marketing Manager for McCarthy and Stone Southern, explains: “We are pleased to be able to bring this limited time offer to Cornwall, because we know that it helps to alleviate some of the financial barriers preventing retirees from moving.


“It also aims to encourage retirees who are perhaps thinking about their future needs to proactively consider the different housing options and lifestyle benefits available to them now rather than later.


“A move to a McCarthy and Stone Lifestyle Living development, such as Ocean House, or Retirement Living development such as Pen Morvah, can be the key to an active and independent retirement.  Reduced property maintenance, comfort and security, and all the benefits of being part of a community of like-minded people are among the many advantages.”


Ocean House is a Lifestyle Living development for the over 55s, which is ideal for those who want to be able to ‘lock up and leave’. Offering total peace of mind, the Management Scheme includes a comprehensive security system – with camera entry and security lighting – along with maintenance of the landscaped gardens and communal areas.


Pen Morvah, which is the for those over 60, features a spacious homeowners’ lounge, perfect for socialising with friends and new neighbours, beautifully landscaped gardens in which to relax, and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. The development has its own House Manager to take care of the smooth running of the development, car parking via a permit scheme, a secure entrance system and 24-hour emergency call points.
