Pick an apartment in Victoria Park's new development

Renaissance Retirement will be showcasing its full plans and prices for its highly anticipated Fleur-de-Lis Victoria Park development on Thursday September 24, at Torbay Country Bowling Club.

The off plan event, is the first opportunity whereby local people will be able to reserve their apartment as the company gears up to a grand opening launch early in the new year.

The development of 38 luxury one, two and three bed apartments is seen by many as the number one retirement development in Paignton given its location and high specifications.

The apartments have been designed to offer a convenient lifestyle in a contemporary setting, some offering mezzanine floor spaces, en suites and balconies creating a modern and stylish environment.

Ideally suited to downsizers and those seeking to maintain a quality standard of independent living throughout retirement, each of the properties is connected to emergency call systems and 24-hour security, as well as an on-site concierge who is on hand to assist owners and oversee the development's daily operation.

A lavish owners' drawing room and guest suite are also accessible to all owners.

Just 450 steps to the beach and a five minute walk to town, Victoria Park offers potential owners a perfect location to enjoy everything the English Riviera has to offer.

Bradleys estate agents will support the sales and marketing at the development. The top-rated Devon agents were hand-picked for the role after a number of recommendations and an interview process.

Renaissance Retirement, who built the first retirement development at HRH Prince of Wales' Poundbury site in Dorchester, is advising interested parties to register early for more information and appointments.

Nick Watkins, development director at Renaissance Retirement, commented: "We are expecting a big turn-out of interested buyers on September 24 and hoping for some early reservations where people can hand pick their favourite apartment.

"We are delighted with the response for our development overlooking Victoria Park from people living in Torbay. It's a superb development in a great location which is why so many have registered their interest."

Chris Baxter, director at Bradleys said: "Offering a tranquil setting and high quality design, we knew that Renaissance Retirement's development would be popular; but the amount of interest we have already received has been staggering. It is clear that the area has a great need for quality retirement properties."

Location is at the heart of Fleur de Lis popularity, with many of the apartments overlooking the grounds of Victoria Park and just a short walk from the shops, boutiques, pubs and restaurants on Paignton high street. The Eastern Esplanade and some of the 'English Riviera's most beautiful beaches are just a short walk away.

Paignton is serviced by excellent public transport with regular bus services travelling to Torquay, Totnes and Plymouth.

The Paignton & Dartmouth Steam Railway runs from Paignton on the scenic seven-mile trip to Kingswear on the River Dart.

All buyers will benefit from Renaissance's complimentary SmoothMove service, which is designed to ease the pressures, stress and cost of moving home. New owners receive expertise and support from a specialist SmoothMove Consultant, including packing up their furniture, planning the layout of their new home and even arranging new utility services.

Fleur-de-Lis, Victoria Park, has also been commended for its design by the Mayor of Torbay, Gordon Oliver. He commented: "I've been to the site and judging by the plans for the development I think they will sell very well."
