Work on a new retirement living community in Heaton Mersey is set to complete by the end of 2021.

Construction began last autumn at The Woodlands, an Adlington Retirement Living development, situated on Woodlands Road in Heaton Mersey.

Last month former Conservative and Labour politicians Ken Clarke and David Blunkett, respectively, wrote an open letter to Boris Johnson urging him to create a task force to build more specialist retirement communities, enabling retirees to remain independent in their own homes.

Adlington says the new Heaton Mersey development is a perfect example of such a community, offering 63 stylish one-, two- and three-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 55’s, in a safe and secure environment, with the benefit of patios or walk on balconies to most apartments.

Today, Adlington Retirement Living has released new images showing what the exterior of the age-exclusive apartments are expected to look like.

Alexandra Johnson, sales and marketing director, said: “Our award- winning approach to independent living, ensures homeowners don’t have to compromise on their lifestyle, their social life or their independence. We aim to provide a community spirit, whilst promoting independence and individual respect. It’s a chance to become part of a thriving community of like-minded people, with a shared outlook.”

Four of Adlington’s sites have won Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards for the Best Retirement Development at the WhatHouse? Awards, UK housebuilding’s most prestigious event.

The Folds in Romiley and the Bridges in Macclesfield won the Silver Award in 2020 and 2019, Adlington House in Otley won the Gold Award in 2017 and Adlington House in Portishead won the Bronze Award in 2015.

The Woodlands will offer Heaton Mersey residents the best of both worlds.

Homeowners will be able to enjoy the privacy of their own peaceful and spacious apartment, spend time in the leafy gardens – maintained by an expert team of gardeners – relax in the hairdressing salon, therapy suite or homeowners’ lounge and enjoy the table service restaurant.

Each apartment at The Woodlands has been designed to make everyday life easier, safer and more comfortable.

Quality fixtures and fittings include hardwearing 80% wool carpets that reduce heat loss and add a touch of luxury, feature fireplaces, fully-fitted kitchens with integrated appliances and specially designed wet rooms.
