The Sycamores

The Sycamores, Muirs, Kinross

property description



The Sycamores was built by McCarthy & Stone purposely for retirement living. The development consists of 33 one and two-bedroom retirement apartments for the over 60s. You can relax, knowing that there's a House Manager on hand during office hours as well as the added benefit of having security features. These include a 24 hour emergency call system should you require assistance and a camera door entry system linked to your TV, so you can see who's calling before letting them in. There's no need to worry about being weighed down by maintenance costs either as the service charge covers the cost of external maintenance, gardening and landscaping, window cleaning, buildings insurance, security and energy costs of the laundry, lounge and other communal areas. The Homeowners' lounge provides a great space to socialise with friends and family or relax in the sun room and roof terrace with pleasant views. If your guests have traveled from afar, they can extend their stay by booking into the development Guest Suite (usually for a fee of £25 per night - subject to availability).
