Mayor of Christchurch Opens Monterey Retirement Apartments The Mayor of Christchurch Councillor Nick Geary has officially opened Monterey, our first Platinum Skies retirement development in Christchurch. Planting a Monterey sapling, the development’s namesake, to commemorate the opening, the Mayor commented: ‘It is my pleasure to open Monterey for the people of Christchurch, Platinum Skies have created much needed high quality retirement housing – I’m sure this would be a very happy place to retire.’ Located in the grounds of the newly revamped Christchurch Hospital, Monterey is a collection of 35 one and two bedroom retirement apartments, available for retirees through our exclusive part-buy part-rent scheme. David Hines, Platinum Skies Chief Executive, delivered a speech at the opening, thanking our early reservists, local councillors and the local community: ‘We’re delighted to officially open Monterey. This is a significant development for Christchurch and one I hope the local community take pride in. Platinum Skies believe all retirees deserve a high quality lifetime home, and so all our apartments at Monterey are available through our unique part-buy part-rent scheme which makes living here truly affordable.’ Everyone who attended the opening received a guided tour of the large, open-plan properties, built to adapt to changing needs with flexible layouts, lifts throughout and ample storage – crucial for all downsizers. If you were unable to attend the grand opening, our doors are always open. To arrange a private viewing of the show home, please call our sales team on 01202 471461 or drop in for a visit! Monterey’s interiors are elegant, designed to create a feeling of serenity and wellbeing and generous windows flood the spacious rooms with light. Each apartment has a shaker-style kitchen, fully fitted with integrated appliances and luxury finishes throughout. Many of the apartments feature Juliette balconies, giving the frontage a warm and welcoming feel. With each of the properties having their own distinctive features, including curved walls and high ceilings, there is something to suit everyone. For more information, call 01202 471 461.
