Situated in the heart of the charming traditional market town of Alton, Austen Place provides the perfect location for an enjoyable and independent retirement. The town itself is steeped in history and renowned for its links with Jane Austen, who spent much of her time walking and shopping in Alton whilst living in the nearby village of Chawton.
Our beautiful development has a range of local amenities right on its doorstep. A large Sainsbury’s supermarket is a stone’s throw away and 0.2 miles from the development is the high street, convenient for day to day necessities including banks, a Post Office, a second hand book store, arts and crafts shop, vintage boutiques and a variety of restaurants and cafés to enjoy at your leisure. There is also a local market in the town centre every Tuesday ideal for fresh local produce. Also in close proximity to Austen Place is a modern library, community centre and a sports centre with a swimming pool, gym and several courts.
Alton is easy to get to and has good road connections to London and the surrounding southern counties and coastal towns. Trains from Alton Station run a service direct to London Waterloo, as well as New Alresford, Bentley, Farnham, Aldershot, Woking, Wimbledon and Clapham Junction.
Part of McCarthy Stone’s Retirement Living PLUS range (formally assisted living), Austen Place will allow you to blend a sense of independence with peace of mind, because you’ll know that help is on hand if it’s required. With our retirement properties in Alton, you’ll still own your own home, but a 24/7 emergency call service is available, and an Estates Manager is on-site to help with your everyday needs, too. We also offer tailor-made care and support. Simply tell us what chores you’d like some assistance with each week and we can help.
All our high quality retirement apartments incorporate intelligent design, giving you gorgeous, yet practical living spaces that are safe, secure and energy efficient. As well as the privacy of your own apartment, there’s the opportunity to lead a full and active social life. You can call into the residents’ lounge whenever you feel like company, and it’s a lovely place to meet up with friends or join in the many activities organised by residents and the Estate Management team. The lounge is also the perfect space to invite friends and family over for a special celebration.
Open every day, our table service restaurant serves tasty and nutritious lunches for our homeowners and their friends and family, at a very reasonable price. All the food is freshly prepared and we can cater for special dietary requirements. For a special occasion or celebration, you’re also welcome to book our function room and there is a computer available to use here.
With all this and more, Austen Place really is the ideal place to enjoy your later life.
