Saffron Walden retirees visited a new retirement living community as its show suite was unveiled.

McCarthy Stone's Jacob Place development consists of 56 one and two-bedroom apartments in Radwinter Road.

At the opening of the show suite, potential homeowners visited and enjoyed a glass of fizz and refreshments.


Sam Watkins, divisional sales director at McCarthy Stone, said: "We're delighted to offer a greater choice of quality retirement living in Saffron Walden.

"Our purpose-built, specialist homes allow people to make the most of their retirement, and to live as independently as possible, for as long as possible, with the benefit of tailored care packages if required."

Jacob Place caters to the over-70s and includes a lounge, on-site bistro, landscaped gardens and wellness suite.
