With the wraps still covering the building along the western boundary of the Somerset County Cricket Ground, it is hard to imagine that, beneath the scaffolding and covers, there lie the stunning new Pegasus retirement apartments and a restaurant.
In the new Pegasus Court there will be 65 apartments for the over-60s, including 44 one-bedroomed apartments, 19 two-bedroomed apartments and two Penthouse apartments. Residents will also have secure, under cover parking and there will be a communal roof top garden that promises panoramic views over the countryside and over the cricket ground. Being in the centre of Taunton, Pegasus Court is also within walking distance of the main shops, train station and public amenities.
Development sales manager, Jane Briscoe, explains why this development is attracting so much attention: “Although the site is still under wraps, I am getting enquiries from people around the world who are fascinated to know what is going on and once they see that they can downsize in style here – as well as watching the cricket from the luxury of their own balcony – they want to reserve their apartment. Also, SCCC membership is complimentary to all owners at Pegasus Court.
“However, people who are not interested in cricket need not worry as they will find that they are amongst like-minded neighbours here and, with the lifestyle we offer, there is much more to this development than cricket!” Jane adds.
Pegasus Court is designed to meet the changing needs of the over-55s. The development incorporates a number of shared facilities including fully-maintained landscaped gardens, an owners’ lounge with library and kitchen area, secure parking, recharging facility for electric mobility scooters and cars and a luxurious visitors’ suite where owners’ guests can stay overnight.
The development is equipped with 24-hour careline services and a friendly estate manager who is on-hand during the day to ensure that the development runs smoothly and provides help and advice for owners and their families.
Currently, there is a Star Buy one-bed apartment selling for £219,950. For more information on the development and services Pegasus offers, call freephone 0800 583 8844 or visit the Pegasus website: www.pegasus-homes.co.uk.
All the Pegasus sites have 24-hour staff, a handyman pack to help people when they move in, lifts, security, visitors' suites (based on 5* hotels) and many more options. They are built for active people over 60 and the apartments on the Taunton site have the added bonus of views over the cricket ground. The armchar umpire has never been so well catered for and any cricket widows have like-minded company down stairs in the resident's living room!
