Ipswich, one of the UK's most up-and-coming towns, will be the location for the latest Retirement Living development by award-winning builders McCarthy & Stone. The development, which will feature 25 one-bedroom apartments and 26 two-bedroom apartments exclusively for those over 60s, will be located in the heart of town, giving you easy access to all that Ipswich has to offer.

All 51 of McCarthy & Stone's modern Retirement Living apartments will come with a fully fitted kitchen including an oven, hob and hood, double-glazed windows and fire detection equipment. Residents will also be treated to extra luxuries such as a heated towel rack, integrated fridge freezer, and a Sky/Sky+ connection point.

This spacious development will have everything you could possibly need to get the most out of your retirement, with beautiful landscaped gardens, lifts to all floors and a guest suite for overnight visitors.
