Available to buy off plan, guests will be able to find out about apartment specifications, prices and layouts; and for those keen to secure one of the remaining plots, priority appointments can be booked ahead.

The information event takes place in the Crown Hotel in Market Place, Bawtry.

After a short presentation, people will be able to enjoy light refreshments with advisors on hand to answer any questions.

Liz Green, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy and Stone North East, said: “Our new Retirement Living development in Bawtry will feature a choice of high quality apartments designed exclusively for people aged 60 and over, and to suit those who want to enjoy a full and active retirement.

“We recently commissioned a study which highlighted that almost 50 per cent of pensioners in the UK (5.7 million people aged over 65), are considering moving to smaller homes, or would be encouraged to do so with a stamp duty exemption.

In Bawtry we believe this type of scheme benefits from a fantastic central location, represents a great opportunity to fulfil a housing need in the area, and will form part of a varied offering to older people, and those looking to downsize there.

“With so many amenities right on their doorstep, homeowners will have the freedom to live as independent a life as they ever have and with all the latest mod-cons and high specification fittings and fixtures. All the maintenance is taken care of by an expert team, making this a hassle-free move for someone looking for a more relaxed pace of life.”

Retirement Living developments have been carefully designed to offer homeowners the very best in independent living within a safe and secure environment; with the opportunity to enjoy companionship and to take part in social activities on site.

All of the apartments will come with open plan living and dining spaces, fully fitted kitchens with integrated appliances, as well as communal space with a beautifully appointed homeowner’s lounge and landscaped gardens.

Set in a prominent location, William Bradford Court has a good range of amenities nearby, and good public transport links to surrounding towns and cities.
