In a few months, people over the age of 60 will be able to buy a new retirement home in Grantham.

Builder McCarthy and Stone has started work on Martin Court, on the corner of St Catherine’s Road and Dudley Road, a complex of 41 “Later Living” privately owned apartments. They will be a mixture of one and two-bedroom apartments, available to buy off-plan.

Later Living developments are designed to give older people their independence with a degree of security at the same time. Martin Court will include a shared lounge, guest suite, laundry room and a lift.

There will be a dedicated house manager and 24-hour emergency call points.

Gill Sabin, of McCarthy and Stone, said: “When complete, the apartments will be low maintenance in design and will benefit from modern fittings, good security and will have a number of specialist features.”

The developer also offers a pension annuity service, equity release, legal services and guaranteed funeral plans.
