A half-built retirement complex is proving hugely attractive to mature home-buyers.

Templars Court has been so popular with buyers that more than 30 per cent of its 40 properties have already been reserved off plan.

Prices start at over £180,000 and stretch to in excess of quarter of a million pounds at the McCarthy & Stone development.

Marketing manager Suzanne McElhiney said: “Usually we’d expect to sell most of our apartments once the development is complete.

“However, we had an incredible amount of interest as soon as we started work on Templars Court, particularly from local people who wanted to stay in the area but were looking for a more manageable property.

“Buyers are enjoying the flexibility of choice here.

“It allows them to personalise their apartment and our professional advisors are on-hand to take them through the range of choices.”

Since going on sale in August, 12 apartments have already been reserved in the Linlithgow High Street development.

Each apartment offers the independence of retaining full home ownership while living in an apartment that’s specifically designed for later life.

Facilities include a lounge for socialising, a guest suite, landscaped gardens with two seating areas, car parking, a mobility scooter charging point and a lift to every floor.

A dedicated house manager will ensure its smooth running and there will be a security entrance system with 24-hour emergency call points to provide peace of mind for residents.

Templars Court boasts 40 one and two bedroom retirement living apartments.
