Renaissance Retirement releases apartment of the month in Abingdon – with £5,000 off the asking price!

Renaissance Retirement has announced its Apartment of the Month for February at its Fleur-de-Lis development in Abingdon, with £5,000 off the asking price.

The one bedroom south facing apartment, priced now at £251,000, comes with a well-appointed kitchen, fitted wardrobes, and a lovely sunny aspect. For a reservation taken in February and March this apartment will also include furniture to suit your choice from our selection as well as £1,000 of John Lewis vouchers.

It’s the first time since the launch of the site on Wootton Road that the company has discounted any of its apartments.

The luxury retirement development designed for independent living is now 80 per cent sold and the company now has only four units left to sell.

Development Director at Renaissance Retirement, Nick Watkins, explains: “There has never been a better time to buy a brand new apartment in the Oxford area. Abingdon is a great town and has all the amenities you would want in your retirement years.

“We have very few apartments left and are keen to sell them quickly. We believe our Apartment of the Month represents excellent value. It’s a great time of year to buy, with people looking to move and be in for the spring.”

It’s not just the added security of being in a purpose built development and free from all the hassles of owning a bigger home that has attracted buyers at Fleur-de-Lis.

Renaissance concierge Rachael Galloway explains: “The community feeling between the owners is evident as you walk around the building. There is a lovely togetherness feeling here and they look out for each other. I’m here most days to help where I can and organise a number of trips out in the seven seater car. We want our owners to be happy, enjoy their lives and relax.”

Having noticed an increase in demand for luxury retirement housing, Renaissance design, build and manage top end retirement developments, with communal areas of the sites meticulously cleaned and maintained to ensure a level of comfort that one would expect in a 4 star hotel.

Current owner, Rex Paske, 77, said: “It’s wonderful living here – I couldn’t be happier and the best decision I made. I don’t have the issues of security and up-keep of a big house and I’m near my family which means I see them more. All the owners are very friendly and we try and look out for each other.”

To assist new owners downsizing and moving in, Renaissance offers its own SmoothMove service at no extra cost. This is a bespoke service designed to ease the pressures and hassle of moving home.

New owners opting to use the fully inclusive free service benefit from the expertise of their own SmoothMove Consultant, who can offer advice and assistance with downsizing, the planning and setting up of their new home and take care of the often time consuming administration of arranging new utility services.  SmoothMove also includes a complimentary removal service to transport your existing possessions to your new home.
