Quantock House’s new homeowners get together to meet each other over afternoon tea

Scores of homeowners for our new Taunton independent-living community came together to meet each other while enjoying afternoon tea. This was the first opportunity for all new homeowners to get together ahead of moving into our new independent-living community, Quantock House.

Living in the heart of Taunton

This luxury apartment complex for people aged 55 and over is being constructed by Platinum Skies in Paul Street, which will comprise of one and two-bedroom apartments for people who would like to live amongst like-minded, sociable neighbours in Taunton town centre.

Homeowners enjoyed the event, hosted at The Castle Hotel, which enabled around 30 people who have purchased a new home in Quantock House to get together to meet their neighbours and form new friendships before they all move into their purpose-built apartments.

One homeowner commented during the afternoon tea: “This event has been uplifting. It has given me the boost I needed today. I am really excited about moving into our new apartment.”

Another homeowner commented: “We feel like we are already part of the community after coming to this event, rather than only starting the process when we move in.”

Taunton retirement homes

Apartments within Quantock House are available to purchase off-plan featuring a host of communal facilities including a bistro, bar area, homeowners’ lounges, activity room, and treatment room. Pets are welcome in all Platinum Skies communities, which also feature a visitor’s suite for family and friends to stay in.

The community at Quantock House

Laura Warwick, Director of Lifestyle, Wellbeing and Entertainment at Platinum Skies, said: “The room was filled with laughter all afternoon at our afternoon tea event as our new homeowners got together to meet each other.

“They are looking forward to starting the next chapter of their lives at Quantock House where they will have fantastic, friendly neighbours to chat with over coffee in our homeowners’ lounges or a meal in the onsite bistro. They have been missing the sense of togetherness and fun that we offer within our communities, which is boosted further by a whole programme of organised activities such as cocktails and mocktails, board games, and pilates.”

A dedicated onsite Community Manager for Taunton will organise events and trips out for the homeowners, as well as providing practical and emotional support.

Quantock House is positioned in the centre of Taunton’s historic town centre, with the shops right on the homeowners’ doorstep, with a three-minute walk to the nearest supermarket, and just a two-minute walk to Vivary Park. Prices for a Platinum Skies home in Taunton start from £105,000 with the Platinum Skies flexible shared ownership option.
