McCarthy & Stone has launched its new Retirement Living development, Norton Court – named after author Mary Norton, who was born and raised in Leighton Buzzard and is most well-known for The Borrowers children’s book series.

The sales launch event took place on January 27 at Leighton Buzzard Theatre and gave potential purchasers the opportunity to find out more about life at Norton Court – a development of 30 one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments on Leston Road.

Gill Sabin, of McCarthy & Stone, said: “Retirement Living offers the independence of retaining home ownership, while living in a secure, low maintenance and energy efficient apartment. What’s more, with all the maintenance of all external and communal areas taken care of, homeowners can spend more time enjoying their retirement with family and friends.

“Norton Court our new development in Leighton Buzzard, is designed to ensure over 60s can enjoy a rich, rewarding and fulfilling life.”

Facilities at Norton Court include a homeowner’s lounge ideal for socialising with friends, landscaped gardens in which to relax and a convenient guest suite should homeowners have friends or relatives to stay. The development also benefits from its very own House Manager, who will ensure the smooth running of the development, a security entrance system, plus 24-hour emergency call points for added peace of mind for both homeowners and their families.
