Only 4 apartments available!

1 bed apartments now from £112,000* in partnership with Homes England.

You can now purchase apartments at Kingfisher Court with Homes England. There are many advantages to purchasing an apartment in this way. For example, if you purchase a 75% share of the property, there will be no rent to pay, meaning you can retain home ownership for less. Purchasing a 50% share would require a monthly rent.

Currently the most affordable property at this stunning development is apartment 44.

•              Purchasing at 75% is £168,000 with no rent

•              Purchasing at 50% is £112,000 with £257 pcm rent

*Qualifying criteria apply. Shared Ownership is available on selected apartments at participating developments only.

Located on South Street, this development of retirement properties in Taunton consists of 62 one and two bedroom apartments, with each providing good access to the local facilities and amenities of central Taunton. 

Our Retirement Living PLUS properties are a great solution if you're looking to free yourself from the burden of managing and maintaining a large family home. When you buy one of our retirement homes in Taunton, you still get to own your own apartment, but you have a little bit of extra help on hand, in case you require it. We also take care of all the exterior maintenance of your home and our development includes great features such as a communal lounge, guest suites for when friends and family visit, and an on-site bistro.

All of our retirement Living PLUS properties are built specifically with the over 70s in mind. They allow homeowners to live independently while also providing tailored help and support. Each homeowner at our retirement properties in Taunton can choose the help they'd like, too. Whether that's help with grocery shopping, hoovering or cleaning is entirely their choice.

This means that, should you purchase one of our retirement properties in Taunton, you'll have more time to spend enjoying the communal areas, the landscaped gardens and the beautiful surroundings of Taunton.

THE LOCAL AREA

Living in Taunton

The largest town in Somerset, Taunton contains over 1,000 years of religious and military history, including a 10th century monastery and Taunton Castle. Taunton itself has also been home to many historically important events, including the Second Cornish Uprising of 1497 and the coronation of the Duke of Monmouth, who crowned himself king of England in 1685. 

You'll also discover a thriving community spirit here, too. So you'll find it easy to make new friends. Central Taunton is part of the annual West Country Carnival circuit and hosts the Taunton Flower Show. Within Taunton, you'll also find the Eat Wellington Food and Drink Festival, and Fake Festival, which is home to some of the UK's most popular cover bands. 

In the evenings, you'll find plenty of opportunities to enjoy some local theatre, arts and culture. The Brewhouse Theatre & Arts Centre stages regular and varied performances throughout the year, while Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre hosts theatre, dance and comedy shows, as well as a range of performances from schools and colleges. If you're keen to take up a new hobby in your golden years, then you'll also find community classes here and at the Creative Innovation Centre in the town centre. 

Sports fans are well catered for as well. Taunton is home to Somerset County Cricket Club and occasionally hosts the England men's and women's national teams. The town also contains a rugby union club, a rugby league club and a football club. Elsewhere, Taunton Racecourse is only two miles away from the centre of Taunton. 

Transport links surrounding our retirement homes in Taunton are strong, which makes the development perfectly situated for when family and friends come to visit. Taunton Railway Station is located on several mainlines, providing national services to locations such as Manchester Piccadilly, Birmingham New Street and London Paddington. Locally, you'll also find regular buses to Minehead, Bridgwater and Weston-super-Mare.
