Platinum Skies is continuing to challenge convention and raise the standards of retirement living with its latest development Esprit, located in Poole town centre. A range of apartments starting from £99,500 are available on a shared ownership basis, where the company is pioneering an accessible and affordable route to a dream retirement.
Esprit is a collection of 55 well-designed apartments conveniently placed on High Street North. It’s aimed squarely at those over-55 who are fed-up with the usual isolated locations and high costs of average retirement developments.
Bursting with character, Poole and all it has to offer will be Esprit residents’ playground with shops, theatres, libraries, restaurants, marina restaurants and cafes all within easy reach. For a day out or holiday getaway, both bus and rail stations are also just a short walking distance from their High Street North location.
Esprit’s own impressive facilities include an on-site bistro, adjoining the communal private lounge, an area perfect for meals and after dinner drinks. Friends and family wishing to stay overnight can be booked into one of the self-contained guest suites, creating a comfortable and stress-free home environment for residents and visitors alike.
Each of the one and two-bedroom apartments have been carefully designed with resident independence at the forefront. The open-plan homes are flooded with natural light and the kitchens and bathrooms have all been equipped with the latest in low-maintenance, energy efficient technology. Balconies in the higher apartments offer sweeping views of the Dorset countryside and the harbour, where another British pioneer, Sunseeker, have built their game changing yachts for decades.
As with all Platinum Skies homes, there is an on-site lifestyle manager helping to build a dynamic community as well as offering support to each of the residents. Platinum Skies are committed to long-term partnerships with their buyers, whatever support or care may be required.
Taking the stress out of moving, the company can manage the sale of residents’ previous property and assist with packing, removals and unpacking. Handling every last detail, the committed after-care service can even assist with selling, donating or disposing of unwanted furniture, and provide a handyman to perfect any finishing touches in the new home – making residents’ move to Esprit as straightforward and stress-free as possible.
Platinum Skies also manage and maintain all elements of their developments, ensuring that the exceptionally high standards are maintained.
Chief Operating Officer of Platinum Skies, David Hines told Location: “Older people hesitate to move into retirement communities because it can feel as though they are surrendering their lifestyle rather than enhancing it in their later years. We believe maintaining control and independence is important to everyone, regardless of age. We aim to create an environment that feels less like retirement and more of a lifestyle choice.”
Platinum Skies’ flexible ownership scheme makes this lifestyle accessible and financially smart. Residents do not have to sacrifice their independence and the convenience of a bustling town centre for the comforts of serviced living.
Rental payments, service charge, ground rent and event fees apply. Purchasers must meet age and eligibility requirements. Platinum Skies is a Registered Social Landlord regulated by and registered with Homes England (No.4836).
