Freeman House

Freeman House, Keepers Close, Canterbury

property description



Freeman House is a Retirement Living development, brought to you by McCarthy & Stone. The development offers a selection of one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments and is situated in the picturesque Cathedral city of Canterbury. Bordering The Spitfire Ground, home of Kent County Cricket and located less than a mile from the city centre, Freeman House has all the amenities you could want close by. What's more, McCarthy & Stone apartments are designed to make it easy for you to live independently with every home comfort. A much talked about feature of Freeman House is the communal lounge on the first floor with an extensive terrace for a ringside seat to enjoy the cricket on match days.
Designed exclusively for the over 60s, our Retirement Living development gives you the best of both worlds. You have the benefit of owning your own home, free from worries of external maintenance or gardening - and the dedicated House Manager oversees the smooth runing of the development.
