McCarthy Stone Retirement Living

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.

I am currently selling The Apartments at Royal Gardens in Buntingford. Buntingford is Hertfordshire's smallest town and the pretty, pedestrian-friendly high street sits in the heart of a conservation area. For me the best part of my job is interacting and helping the homeowners choose the best property for their next stage in life.
