McCarthy & Stone - Colchester, CO3
This development is subject to planning.
The Essex town of Colchester is built on a wealth of history. It was the first Roman settlement in Britain and is claimed by many to be this country’s oldest recorded town. Everywhere you look there are reminders and celebrations of times past. But Colchester has never rested on its laurels. Today it’s a vibrant and cosmopolitan culture capital, and its future has never looked so good.
We believe that Colchester would make a fascinating and ideal base for everything you could want out of today’s retirement living. That’s why we’re planning to create an exciting new development of luxuriously-appointed one and two bedroom apartments – each created to the highest standards by award-winning builders McCarthy & Stone. We provide beautiful apartments which are modern, bright and spacious – finished perfectly with tasteful and attractive décor. We include the very best in modern appliances and state-of-the-art security features – every detail is designed with care to provide you with unrivalled quality and convenience.
The whole development will be enhanced by elegant and fully-maintained landscaped gardens, and you can meet-up with friends and neighbours for a chat in the comfortably well-appointed Club Lounge. There’ll be a friendly and helpful on-site House Manager to assist with any concerns, letting you concentrate on getting the best out of life – and everything that the historic and contemporary town of Colchester has to offer.
There are over two thousand years of history to choose from in Colchester. From the oldest surviving Roman town walls to the imposing Norman edifice of Colchester Castle: built over the ancient temple of Claudius and now a housing fascinating museum. In fact there are a variety of museums to choose from in the town – barely enough to contain Colchester’s rich and varied past.
In more recent times Colchester has blossomed into something of a cultural Mecca; it boasts three excellent theatres: The Mercury; The Headgate, as well as Essex University’s Lakeside theatre – all showing historic and contemporary plays and shows. If music is more to your taste, there’s the popular Colchester Arts Centre, which hosts a packed program of Jazz; Folk; Rock and blues – as well as providing a venue for top comedy performers.
Colchester’s main shopping streets have all the familiar big names, while a stroll through the cobbled areas of Eld Lane and Trinity Street reveals a wealth of small, independent retailers; coffee shops and specialist cafes. There are a profusion of great pubs in Colchester as well as a huge assortment of highly-rated restaurants and eateries: ranging across the culinary spectrum from English to Nepalese. If you get the chance to explore further into Essex, there are regular bus-routes with a stop close-by – as well as a railway station only 2.4 miles from the development.
