First homeowners move into Quantock House over-55s independent-living community The first homeowners enjoyed afternoon tea and bubbles to mark their move into our new luxury independent-living community in Taunton town centre. The first homeowners move into retirement apartments in Taunton We have welcomed the first people to move into their brand new, purpose-built, low-maintenance retirement apartments within Quantock House, based on Paul Street, which is suitable for ages 55 and over. Homeowners can also enjoy a host of communal facilities including a bistro, bar, homeowners’ lounge, treatment room, and activity room, as well as private, landscaped gardens. Quantock House is based directly opposite the local shopping centre, with a library next door, doctor’s surgery less than half a mile away, and a golf course just a seven-minute walk away. Our community also boasts two dedicated onsite Community Managers, who organise a programme of activities for the homeowners to enjoy, as well as providing practical and emotional support. Celebrating our first homeowners moving in To celebrate our first homeowners moving into their retirement apartments in Taunton, we organised an afternoon tea event to bring the homeowners together in the bistro with live music. This enabled them to socialise while trying a range of activity taster sessions supported by businesses from the local community in the communal areas including tai chi and yoga led by The Sangha House in Taunton, massage, reflexology, and pastel painting. Laura Warwick, Director of Lifestyle, Wellbeing and Entertainment, said: “Throughout the afternoon, the whole community was alive with chatter as our new homeowners got to know their neighbours and really experience the best of what life has to offer at Quantock House. Our event was a proud moment for the team to see our first homeowners after they moved in as they were having a fantastic time. She added: “It was the perfect way to bring the community to life after a lot of hard work by our construction team to make a series of happy, healthy and affordable homes within our new apartment complex in the heart of Taunton.” What’s on offer at Quantock House?
