Margaret thrilled with spacious Romsey retirement apartment with view

Having left Haslemere for Romsey to be closer to family recently, Margaret Monger reflects on her move to Renaissance Retirement's Fleur-de-Lis development on Duttons Road.

Home is now a spacious one bed apartment with all the mod cons and a balcony. "I love my flat and the view from my balcony. I get the morning sun and can sit out there taking the world in."

Margaret has enjoyed the first few months at her new home but mention the word 'retirement' and there's a wry smile. The 89 year old might have slowed down but still enjoys working. For over 40 years, Margaret has pursued a career in genealogy. Although she takes on very few private clients these days, she still spends hours researching on-line and at the College of Arms in central London.

"I've loved my work and why should I give it up? I still go up to London on the train to meet people and do some research. I've been doing it for 40 years so some things don't change!"

"The lifestyle of retirement living suits me. There's a lovely family feel to Fleur-de-Lis and I enjoy the social scene," said Margaret. "Romsey has a village feel to it and the location couldn't be better for me. It's a very short walk to the station, the library, Waitrose and the shops."

Margaret added: "Rachael our concierge is superb at organizing activities and events as well as ensuring Fleur-de-Lis is run smoothly."

The development, built on the former magistrates' court on Duttons Road, is now over 90 per cent sold. Comprising 52 one and two bed apartments, some featuring mezzanine floors, the company has been attracting a wide range of interested buyers.

Renaissance Retirement's sales manager Matt Smith said: "We are delighted Margaret has settled in so well to our lifestyle. We are now over 90 per cent sold out and it's been our fastest selling site ever.

"There is very strong interest in the Romsey area for good quality retirement apartments.
We are responding to the market with our development which offer bigger more spacious retirement flats."

The luxurious properties will provide an exceptional standard of independent living for those considering downsizing from a larger family home.

The spacious one and two bedroom apartments are impeccably finished with contemporary interiors, whilst owners also have access to an owners' drawing room and landscaped gardens.
