A new McCarthy Stone development has been awarded planning permission in the market town of Alton in Hampshire. This development will comprise 20 one-bedroom and 23 two-bedroom Retirement Living properties that boast a convenient location close to the town centre and a large area of south-facing amenity space.

Our retirement properties in Alton offer the perfect blend for retirees. You get your own beautiful and spacious apartment, but you also have access to an on-site communal lounge and shared gardens where you can make new friends. Plus, because we take care of all the gardening and maintain the outside of your property, you can spend more of your retirement doing the things you love.

McCarthy & Stone Management Services (MSMS) are responsible for looking after our Lifestyle Living and Retirement Living developments, the grounds and services that together make up your new home.

MSMS provide and maintain the emergency-call system, intruder alarm and door camera entry. They also take care of gardening and general upkeep of the outside of the development and all shared areas.

In our Retirement Living schemes, these services include a friendly House Manager, on hand during office hours in the week (which may vary), to take care of the day-to-day running of the development. They can also arrange social events, and our residents choose whether or not to get involved with these.

The development will also feature a 24-hour emergency call system you can use at any time.

Alton’s a thriving market town in the beautiful county of Hampshire. It’s incredibly popular with residents and tourists alike because it blends historic buildings with modern shops and delightful arcades. It’s particularly popular with shoppers; especially on Tuesdays when the town hosts its famous market.

If you’re looking for history and culture, head to the Curtis Museum, which is home to one of the finest local history collections in Hampshire. It explores 100 million years of the region’s past and artefacts include a Roman enamel cap and ancient Saxon burials. You can also visit the Church of St Lawrence, which was part of the civil war. If you look closely during your visit, you’ll still be able to see bullet holes in the door.

If you like to get out and explore, then the circular walking trail from Chawton to Upper Farringdon is perfect. Chawton is the former home of Jane Austen and the literary walk takes you past places that she knew. If you fancy something a little more challenging, take the Writers’ Way Walk. But, for something more relaxing, you can take the Watercress Line steam railway, which passes through the lush countryside and provides enviable views.
