Renaissance Retirement herald Grand Opening of new £9m luxury retirement apartments in Paignton a success

The Mayor of Torbay, Gordon Oliver, officially opened Renaissance Retirement's prestigious Fleur-de-Lis development in Paignton at the weekend.

The 38 spacious one and two bedroom apartments next to Victoria Park offer a number of special features including balconies, en-suite bathrooms, patios and mezzanine galleries.

The company has already reserved a good number of the apartments on the opening weekend including the most expensive, fetching £485,000.

Prices for the one bed apartments start at £180,000 and Renaissance Retirement's sales manager Matt Smith is advising interested buyers to book an appointment to view. Matt said: "It's been a very successful launch with over £1m of apartments sold in the opening weekend. We are advising that interested buyers get in touch for a tour as soon as possible.

"We have some very special apartments and we anticipate we will attract buyers looking to downsize from the Torbay area and further afield."

Mayor of Torbay, Gordon Oliver added: "I've been very impressed with the finish inside and outside. It's a spectacular development and blends in beautifully with its surroundings. Renaissance Retirement has done a wonderful job and it should sell well."

Location is at the heart of the company's apartments located next to Victoria Park. Only five minutes' walk from the High Street, it will provide luxurious living spaces ideally suited for downsizers looking to maintain a quality standard of independent living in the region.

The owners' drawing room is the centre piece of the development. Wall to ceiling glass, patio doors that open onto a landscaped garden and a fresh, bright interior, with a hint to its nautical location will be one of the main features of Fleur-de-Lis.

The stunning room will also boast a kitchen for owners to use, as well as the on-site concierge to host regular tea and coffee mornings.

Fleur-de-Lis has been built on the site of the town's old library building, which was re-located to the town centre. The stylish development has been built with local architecture in mind.

Existing owners also benefit from a dedicated concierge, who deals with the day to day running of the development whilst also helping to assist with those small jobs that become difficult in older age.

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.

Prices start from £180,000. Interested buyers can book a tour by calling 0800 625 0026.
