The specification of our retirement apartments does 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 two bedroom McCarthy & Stone apartment.
This development has achieved Planning Approval.
Retiring to Chesterfield will allow you to enjoy all that a town lifestyle offers – from local independent retailers to high street names – on the edge of the glorious Peak District, where you'll find great outdoor leisure opportunities.
From its spectacular roof-top terrace, this development will offer beautiful views across the Peak District (and with lifts to all floors, there's no need to worry about accessibility). What's more, all ground-floor apartments will have patio areas, while other apartments will have balconies. As a large development of 34 one-beds and 31 two-beds, there'll be plenty of opportunities for socialising. You'll be able to enjoy a tea or coffee with your fellow homeowners in the cosy communal lounge or the on-site bistro.
Our aim is to make your daily life easier. That's why there'll be a great-value on-site bistro for when you don't feel like cooking. And, as a Retirement Living plus development, we'll have all of your care and support needs covered. With flexible support packages, you'll pay only for the care you need.
The Estates Manager will oversee the development's running, aided by a team of trained, dedicated staff whose priority is to ensure your wellbeing. And one of the team will always be on site in case of emergencies. For your safety and security, the development will also have a 24-hour call system and a camera entry system.
The proposed development site offers excellent transport links – good access to the M1, a bus stop less than 200ft away and regular train services – and is within walking distance of the town centre. Here, you'll find various cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques, several banks and a library, post office, pharmacy, doctor's surgery and solicitor. Several supermarkets can also be reached in less than 0.5 miles walking distance.
Construction will begin in Summer 2020, with off plan reservations being taken from Spring 2021. We anticipate welcoming our first homeowners in Summer 2021.
Chesterfield is a place where history, heritage and modernity meet. This market town in Derbyshire is known as the gateway to the Peak District, yet the cities of Sheffield and Derby are only 11 and 24 miles from Chesterfield, respectively.
Chesterfield holds various regular markets. Its general open-air market is held three times a week and offers fresh food products, as well as clothing and home wares. The town's flea market is held every Thursday, where you can pick up a range of second-hand gems. And on the second Thursday of every month you can browse the fresh produce and homemade delights on offer at Chesterfield's farmers market. The town also hosts a variety of annual events, including craft and plant fairs, the Street Food and Grooves Festival and a Medieval Fun Day.
Along with all that the spectacular Peak District has to offer, Chesterfield's canal is a beautiful spot for relaxing walks in the sunshine. What's more, Holmebrook Valley Country Park is a lovely place for walking your dog, and Hardwick Hall is a magnificent National Trust property with spectacular grounds for you to explore.
To learn more about Chesterfield's rich heritage, visit the town's museum and art gallery. Discover how the town has developed over the centuries, from its origins as a Roman fort. And pop over the road to Chesterfield Parish Church, where you can enjoy fantastic views from its aptly named Crooked Spire.
A little further afield, you'll find Chatsworth House, a must-see. Just 20 minutes' drive, it is one of the country's best-loved historic houses and estates. Offering something for everyone, Chatsworth offers tours of the house in all its opulence, over 100 acres of gardens to explore and a farmyard and playground for the little ones.
