Churchill Retirement Living will host a launch event for its latest Somerset development on Thursday 20 January to introduce buyers to Riverain Lodge in Taunton.

House-hunters will have a first chance to learn more about the collection of one- and two-bedroom retirement apartments in person at the event at The Castle Hotel in the town. They will be able to see details of the plans and be one of the first to reserve a property at Riverain Lodge.

Conveniently located on Tangier Way with a beautiful riverside setting, this development is within walking distance of the town centre shops and amenities. A Show Complex will be available to view soon with first occupations anticipated in March this year.

The apartments are completely self-contained with their own front door, providing you with privacy and peace and quiet when you want it, and some come with the bonus of a private balcony with views over the River Tone. There’s a landscaped garden and communal lounge/coffee bar for residents, and the free parking cones with some EV charging points. A guest suite is available to hire for a nominal fee to welcome family and friends for an overnight stay.

Residents have lift access to all floors and a there’s a lodge manager to help day-to-day. A 24-hour emergency line and the security of a camera entry system offers peace of mind.

The choice of one- and two-bedroom apartments have layouts and fixtures and fittings carefully chosen to suite older buyers, with features such as easy-turn lever taps and illuminated light switches. The specification includes double glazing and energy-efficient heating to provide comfort and reduce bills, the kitchens are tiled with colour-coordinated worktops, and come with integrated appliances, there are tiled shower rooms as standard and some properties also have separate en suites, cloakrooms and walk-in wardrobes.

Taunton is the county town of Somerset and has recently been awarded Garden Town status. Its shopping streets offer a good range of high street brands alongside a selection of independent stores and cafés, and there’s also a twice-weekly market in the high street and a weekly Farmers’ Market. There’s a theatre and arts centre and Taunton hosts numerous cultural events throughout the year.

The town is located between sheltered by the Blackdown Hills and Quantock Hills Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty) and with the river and canal running through the centre, there’s the offer of plenty of walks locally, making it a great location for people who like to spend their time outside enjoying walks and nature.
