Only 2 weeks until Fleur-de-Lis retirement Grand Opening

Spaces for Renaissance Retirement’s Grand Opening in Christchurch on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29th March are fast running out with the company urging interested buyers to book their appointment now.

Ringwood-based Renaissance Retirement is holding its official Grand Opening of its prestigious Fleur-de-Lis retirement development on Saturday 28 March and Sunday 29 March.

Fleur-de-Lis’ perfect location is at the heart of the company’s collection of 26 new retirement apartments located to the rear of Christchurch High Street, overlooking Druitt Gardens. The apartments will provide luxurious living spaces ideally suited for downsizers looking to maintain a quality standard of independent living in the region.

The much anticipated opening of the entire site has been limited to 80 people with a special event. With 30 per cent of the apartments reserved off plan, the company is hoping to be sold out within the next six months.

Nick Watkins, Development Director said: “We are expecting to take a number of reservations over the weekend but the main point of the event is for potential buyers to get a real feel for the development. Renaissance Retirement launched two show apartments and a sales office in October last year, but this will be the first opportunity to view the entire development.”

As well as being able to view the stunning owners’ lounge and internationally themed tea rooms, guests will be able to view a number of one and two bedroom apartments and the grounds of the site.

The show apartments demonstrate the luxurious specification that home owners can expect. Features include fully integrated Neff appliances throughout, granite work tops with Ovolo mouldings, luxury showers with digitally controlled thermostats, Premium Villeroy Boch sanitaryware and Porcelanosa wall and floor tiles.

The properties will be double glazed throughout and also offer bespoke fitted wardrobes, electric heating, illuminated light switches and fresh air filtration systems, providing luxurious living spaces ideally suited for downsizers looking to maintain a quality standard of independent living.

Renaissance Retirement managing director, Robert Taylor, added: “We are looking forward to our Grand Opening on the 28th and 29th March. It’s a special development and we had some exceptionally good feedback from many of the people who have visited the site so far. I am looking forward to showing people around the development and hopefully, taking reservations on the day. ”

Fleur-de-Lis has been built on the site of the town’s old Cornfactor building which was originally the central hub of the district’s corn market dating back to the 1800s. The stylish development will be partially built using local Portland stone.

The building itself has also been conscientiously designed to preserve the view of the stunning 19th century spire of the Christchurch Christian Centre. In order to achieve its vision of preserving this heritage view, Renaissance Retirement has removed two units from the center of the building and replaced them with a glass link through which the church spire is visible from Druitt Park.

The development comprise 1 and 2 bedroom luxury retirement apartments, and many featuring private balconies as well as a sumptuous Owners' Lounge and Guest Suite.

Nick Watkins added: “If it is luxury and location people are looking for we have the perfect site. Backing on to the thriving Christchurch high street and within easy reach of all the stunning amenities and attractions the New Forest has to offer, our luxury apartments with their high specifications will be hard to beat.

Owners will also benefit from a dedicated Concierge, who will deal with the day to day running of the development whilst also helping to assist with those small jobs such as simply changing a light bulb or helping to carry the shopping to your front door.

Nick added: “To avoid disappointment we advise anyone who would like to be on the guest list for the Grand Opening weekend to contact us immediately. It will be on a first come, first serve basis.”

Renaissance Retirement was handpicked by HRH Prince of Wales to build the first ever retirement development at Poundbury, Dorchester in the 1990s, and has an enviable reputation for quality build and finishes.
