McCarthy & Stone - Kings Langley, WD4
This development is subject to planning.
A new development of Retirement Living apartments is subject to planning in Kings Langley. The McCarthy & Stone development will be well-connected with the surrounding area and close to the historic village of Kings Langley. There will be just 40 apartments within the development, creating a close-knit community for homeowners.
Intruder alarms, a camera entry system and fire detection equipment will ensure security throughout the complex, which will also benefit from an on-site House Manager and a 24-hour call system for residents. Each of the proposed high-quality apartments will be fitted with a full kitchen, including an oven, hob and hood. Double glazed windows will maintain energy efficiency and warmth throughout the complex. Every resident at the proposed Kings Langley development will have access to all communal areas, including the homeowners’ Club Lounge, landscaped gardens, and a Guest Suite which will be available for overnight visitors to use. On-site car parking spaces will be available for permit holders.
The proposed development offers good transport links, with Kings Langley train station only 1.1 miles away, linking directly to London Euston in just 28 minutes. The M25 and the M1 motorways are only a few minutes’ drive from the development, and the bus stop is just 100m from the site and has regular bus services to surrounding towns like Berkhamstead, Apsley, Watford and Hemel Hempstead.
