Quantock House new exclusive over 55s apartments in the centre of Taunton

The eight-storey luxury apartment complex in the town centre features purpose-built one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments with balconies, which are available to people aged 55 and over. Each low-maintenance property in Quantock House has been built with accessibility in mind. Features include easy-to-use kitchens with energy-saving appliances, bathrooms with automatic lighting and step-free showers, extra-wide walkways for wheelchair access, balconies with views over the Quantocks and Blackdown Hills, and secure onsite underground parking. All construction work is due to be completed by October.

Prices start from £117,500, based on the buyer paying 50% of the property’s full market value. The homes at Quantock House are made affordable as part of a government-backed shared ownership scheme delivered in partnership with Homes England. Commonly known as part-buy, part-rent, shared-ownership homes enable people to move and potentially downsize from their existing home which may no longer be suitable for their needs while freeing up money from the sale of the property to use on other life events.

Mike Lyons, Operations Director, said: “As the government lockdown restrictions ease, we have a long list of people who are looking to move into Quantock House. They have told us that they have been stuck in their family home which is too big for just themselves and they are looking to take the next step towards a more independent, financially-secure future. Our team are specialists at enabling people aged 55 and over to live happy, active and healthy lives in a friendly community where they can feel supported by their neighbours.”

Communal facilities and Community Manager

 

Quantock House Taunton Bistro

Homeowners at Quantock House will be able to use a range of communal facilities including enjoying a meal in the bistro, a drink in the bar area, and the opportunity to socialise with their neighbours in the residents’ lounges. They can also take part in a range of classes in the activity room and enjoy some pampering in the treatment room. Pets are welcome at all of our properties, which also feature plenty of space for family and friends to stay and visit.

All of our homes have a dedicated onsite Community Manager who helps to build a dynamic community amongst our homeowners and organise fun activities such as chocolate tasting workshops, cheese and wine evenings, themed bistro meals, yoga, quizzes, and crafts. Our Community Managers also offer practical and emotional support to the residents.

A part-exchange scheme is available for all of our properties, which enables our homeowners to move into their new home before the old one has been listed for sale, as well as guaranteeing that they will receive the full market value for their old property.
