Lancer House in Colchester

06 Feb 19

Where elegance meets practicality – a new development by McCarthy & Stone for the over 70’s.

As we are all living longer and enjoying life more in our latter years, it’s not surprising that McCarthy & Stone are seeing a rise in interest in their Retirement Living properties, and in particular in their new development, Lancer House in Colchester.

Due for completion later this year, Lancer House comprises 48 apartments with a mix of one and two bedrooms, all of which have been designed with space and functionality in mind.  Some of the apartments have a balcony and walk in wardrobes and shower rooms, and all have a separate kitchen to the lounge/dining areas.

But it’s not just about having a safe and modern place to live – Lancer House is all about creating a community.  The communal lounge and landscaped gardens are tastefully designed to enjoy a drink and a chat with your neighbours – and if you don’t feel like cooking, there is an on-site Bistro.

“McCarthy & Stone have not built in Colchester for a number of years”, said Area Manager, Chad Goldsmith. “We believe that Lancer House will provide a great sense of community and I genuinely feel that our retirement developments enrich the lives of our homeowners.  People can engage as much or as little as they wish, and we also offer a variety of events such as jazz nights and other social gatherings which always prove popular”.

Chad continued, “We pride ourselves in offering great homes for people to enjoy their retirement, and our individually tailored care packages that meet our owners’ personal needs are a key part in the success of our developments.  People just need to tell us what’s important to them and we will happily do our best to ensure they feel well looked after.  For example, we can provide additional storage space, and at Lancer House we will have a wellbeing suite for visiting beauty therapists.

“For peace of mind, Lancer House will be staffed 24 hours a day with a qualified Estates Management team, a 24/7 call system for any emergencies and camera entry system to ensure your safety and security.”

It is easy to see why you would enjoy living at Lancer House.  Apart from the well planned spacious apartments and quality facilities, the development also offers parking and a bus stop to the town centre is directly outside the development. The train station is just two miles away and provides direct links to London Liverpool Street.

Colchester town centre is approximately one mile from the development and is one of the oldest recorded towns in Britain which offers a vast array of shops, restaurants and plenty of outdoor activities for those who wish to keep fit and active.  Colchester Golf Club boasts an 18-hole course, beautifully designed by five-time Open Champion James Braid and is a non-profit member’s club. Colchester Indoor Bowls Club is within easy reach of the development and is open all year-round catering for all ages and new members. 

Maria Montgomery, head of Land and New Homes at Fenn Wright said: “The recent launch of Lancer House is a welcome development for Colchester as there is nothing else like this on the market within the area.  Proof that demand for this unique retirement lifestyle is strong, with several apartments being sold off plan since we launched at the end of last year.

“McCarthy & Stone are hosting an information day on Saturday 16th February between 11.00am and 2.00pm at Wivenhoe House Hotel for all those interested to know more about this superb Retirement Living PLUS development for the over 70’s. Discover all the space, style and thoughtful design touches McCarthy & Stone is renowned for”.
