New Garstang bungalow complex to be named after Greenhalgh Castle builder

A new Garstand bungalow complex will be named after a Greenhalgh castle builder.

The new, soon-to-be, exclusive retirement bungalows are currently being worked on in Garstang by McCarthy Stone.

McCarthy announced earlier this week that it’s well into construction at Stanley Gardens and Place with their development of 14 two-bedroom detached retirement living bungalows for the over 50s.

Also part of the development will be 1 and 2 bedroom apartments designed for over 55s.

The bungalows, located on the Kepple Lane, will be available for off-plan sales June, and the low maintenance, luxury apartments in late 2021.

Tasks like window cleaning to front windows, maintenance to communal spaces and front gardens will be taken of care of as this is included in the service monthly fees.

A House Manager will take care of the smooth-running of the development, as well as a 24-hour emergency call system in every apartment should assistance be needed day or night.

Tracey Lowe, Area Sales Manager for McCarthy Stone, said: “Our forthcoming site has already attracted significant levels of interest from local people.  Now more than ever we all want to feel safe and secure in our homes and for many of us, lockdown has made us reassess our housing needs.

“We are seeing more retirees deciding to downsize their homes. The choice of low maintenance living options, with both bungalows and apartments on offer in Garstang, Stanley Gardens and Place has something for all; and with the aim of staying independent for longer and with more time to spend doing the things they love. I would encourage those interested to get in touch now so they can be among the first to receive updates and event invitations.”

The site has been named in honour of Sir Thomas Stanley, the 1st Earl of Derby. Sir Thomas was a prominent figure in the later stage of England’s War of the Roses. Sir Thomas went on to build Greenhalgh Castle in Garstang in 1490.

The bungalows will be available for purchase outright. However, on all apartments there will be the option to purchase outright along with flexible rental options if preferred.
