Shilling Place is a Retirement Living development, brought to you by McCarthy and Stone. The development offers a selection of one and two bedroom Retirement Living apartments and is situated on London Road in the heart of the picturesque village of Purbrook providing you with easy access to many of the amenities you may need. Here, you can enjoy a variety of eateries including a village bakery and a pub. There is also a post office and Co-op Local right on your doorstep. The popular recreation ground, Purbrook Heath is only a few hundred yards away and features a bowls area, tennis courts and cricket green. Travelling further afield is convenient too, with good connections to surrounding towns including Waterlooville, Havant and Portsmouth. Gunwharf Quays is approximately 15 minutes by car and 40 minutes by bus (via Southsea), for leisurely afternoons by the water or panoramic views from the Spinnaker tower.
McCarthy and Stone apartments are designed to make it easy for you to live independently with every home comfort. Shilling Place has everything you need to enjoy a full and active life. There is a stunning communal lounge which provides the perfect place to socialise with friends, located on the ground floor and extends out onto the landscaped garden terrace.
Designed exclusively for the over 60's, 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 there's support from a dedicated House Manager if you need help with anything. With so much attention to detail, it's no wonder McCarthy and Stone is the UK's leading retirement housebuilder.
