Renaissance Retirement has announced that they sold over £2m of top end retirement apartments off plan at their launch event in Marlborough. The English cream tea event attracted over 30 interested parties and the retirement developer is hoping for more reservations next week.

The development, consisting of 28 one and two bed apartments (with one apartment boasting 1,500 square feet) are priced between £295,000 to £630,000.

The superior apartments, which will be known as Fleur de Lis, are being built on the site of the former Old Yard on London Road.

Renaissance Retirement sales manager Matt Smith said: “We are delighted with the start of our sales launch. Our message is clear – ‘Who says you need to downsize when you want to move out of the family home?’ With apartments up to 1,500 square feet, which is the size of a three bed house, we have some very spacious apartments on sale.”

Matt added: “Our message is not to think ‘downsizing’ but ‘rightsizing’. We have some very spacious apartments on offer which, we think will surprise people and are really suited to senior living.”
