McCarthy Stone will lift the lid on their Stowe Place development at a discovery day at the George Hotel on 20th and 21st October.

The development on Rotten Row will include 65 one and two bedroom retirement apartments which are available to buy from January 2022, with the first residents expected to move in in July next year.

Cheryl Bissett, divisional sales and marketing director for McCarthy Stone, said:

“Our new Lichfield development is proving to be very popular amongst local retirees, and we are looking forward to giving prospective purchasers the opportunity to find out more about Stowe Place.

“We’re really pleased to be able to give retirees a first look at the brand-new Lichfield development – appointments are limited, so we’re encouraging all those who are interested to get in touch.”

Cheryl Bissett, McCarthy Stone

Anyone interested in booking an appointment between 11am and 2pm on each day can call 0800 201 4811.

  1. Ohhh wonderful more retirement homes no sign of anything for the youngsters of the City ?…a cinema is needed desperately?

  2. Many other such developments carry with them far reaching conditions. Age restriction (presumably to create regular turnover). The compulsion to re- sell to the owning management at none competitive rates. Extra hidden charges for site management and other services. On going costs even after the owners have deceased.
    For some fairly wealthy people these places might prove a haven. As a business enterprise it is one of a number of ways of parting the elderly from their money. Lichfield has many such places and doubtless others in planning.

  3. I would strongly urge anyone considering purchasing a retirement home from ‘new build’ to take their own independent financial advice beforehand.
    Resales are often up to 50% cheaper, in my experience (from family member and their friends, though not in Lichfield) buying is more of an investment in lifestyle and happiness- a community-living experience which some of course enjoy – rather than a financial investment.

  4. Where is the parking for all these flats,the doctors opposite has no parking. For their patients.once again lichfield ignores the parking for tannants,to many blocks of flats in thecity centre is plain stupid.but that is tories for you.p
