Luxury retirement developer consulting with the public on former police station and magistrates court in Wantage

Renaissance Retirement is conducting a public consultation for local people to showcase its plans to re-develop the former Police station and Magistrates Court on Court Road, Wantage into 32 luxury retirement apartments.

The public exhibition will be held at Vale and Downside Museum, Church Street, Wantage, Oxfordshire between 3pm and 7pm on the 20th January 2015.

Renaissance’s heritage dates back to the first retirement apartments at HRH Prince of Wales’ flagship Poundbury development in Dorchester. The apartments, if planning is approved by the council, would provide luxurious living spaces ideally suited for downsizers looking to maintain a quality standard of independent living.

The company is already well known in the Oxford region through its popular development in Abingdon.

The spacious one and two bedroom apartments will be impeccably finished with contemporary interiors, whilst owners will also have access to a sumptuous lounge and guest suite, which will be available to visiting friends and relatives.

If planning is granted, it is anticipated that the build would start later in the year, with a show home available to view in early 2016.

Nick Watkins, Development Director at Renaissance Retirement, comments:  “We are looking forward to meeting local people and hearing their views on our proposed scheme.”

Nick continued: “Research estimates over £400 billion of housing wealth is tied up in properties where owners desperately wish to scale down. Renaissance’s proposed retirement development in Wantage offers an ideal opportunity for those people approaching their later years who aspire to downsize.

Noticing a demand for luxury retirement housing, Renaissance Retirement design, build and manage retirement developments, with communal areas meticulously cleaned and maintained to ensure a level of comfort that one would expect in a 4 star hotel.
