Property description

The specification of our apartments vary to a degree with each apartment in every development, but this will give you an idea of what you'll find within a new one bedroom McCarthy & Stone retirement apartment.

We are pleased to announce that the Llanishen Retirement Living development is now under construction.

Ideally located in the popular, leafy village of Llanishen, the development will feature 36 spacious, comfortable and low maintenance apartments ideal for the over 60s. Our developments are the ideal size to encourage a close-knit community. Every homeowner can enjoy the privacy of their own apartment as well as the sociable communal areas.

Safety and security is ensured throughout the development, with a camera entry system, intruder alarms, and fire detection sensors in all homes and communal areas. 24 hour staffing and call system ensures around-the-clock assistance for any resident should they need it.

Each high quality apartment includes a fully fitted kitchen with oven, hob and hood, as well as double glazing throughout to ensure warm, comfort and energy efficiency. Some featured apartments also have balconies overlooking the landscaped gardens.

Every resident will have full access to the communal spaces, including a resident's lounge with WiFi, attractive landscaped gardens, on-site car parking for permit holders, and a Guest Suite where visitors can spend the night. The development features wheelchair access and lifts to all floors to aid those with limited mobility.

Llanishen development is ideally located close to Llanishen town centre, and is well-connected by public transport to Cardiff City Centre, which is only six miles away. These apartments are ideal for anyone over 60 who wants to maintain their independence during retirement.

Local Area

Llanishen is a pleasant and peaceful suburb north of Cardiff, with enviable connections to the city centre and to the M4 motorway. The village features a range of local amenities, and residents have easy access both to the Brecon Beacons National Park to the north and to the Bristol Channel and the south coast of Wales to the south and west.

Llanishen is particularly well suited to those who want to make the most of their retirement. The village's leisure centre is next-door to the Retirement development, and includes a swimming pool, gym and badminton courts. Llanishen Golf Club is famous for its fantastic scenery, with panoramic views over the Caerphilly Mountains. The club also offers exclusivity to over 60s at certain slots.

If you enjoy historical sight-seeing, Llanishen residents can visit Tintern Abbey, Margam Park, Caerphilly Castle and Ewenny Priory in under an hour. If you prefer natural wonders, Dan-yr-Ogof caves are a must-see. The largest cave system in Europe is simply breath-taking.

Llanishen village high street is only 0.2 miles from the development, where you will find a Post Office, a Co-operative Food supermarket, a hair salon, and pubs, cafes and newsagents. The village also has a doctor's surgery, a pharmacy, and plenty of other local amenities. Llanishen Park is a lovely green space just a ten minute stroll from the complex, while Llanishan reservoir is a pleasant 30 minute walk away, and is home to a variety of ducks and geese.

Llanishen train station is only 0.7 miles from the complex, with regular connections to Cardiff Central in only 12 minutes. Buses also run from outside the leisure centre, so residents can enjoy the huge range of shops, attractions and events in Wales' capital city.
