When you think of downsizing to an apartment, more often than not the option is for all your living requirements to be on one level and perhaps you might think you'll be compromising on space. This isn't the case with mezzanine living which is available in a selection of apartments at our Marlborough, Wokingham, Sandhurst, Crowthorne and Poole communities.

The design of a mezzanine is an innovative approach that allows greater flexibility and more space to create an additional area which can be used in many ways in a home. This means when choosing to move to an apartment it doesn't mean you'll lose space; in fact, our mezzanine apartments are some of the largest retirement apartments available throughout the country.

All our mezzanine apartments offer large, open plan living spaces up to 1,600 sq. ft, and provide additional height and space to the home. Typically, our dual level apartments comprise generous sized living and dining rooms with an adjoining kitchen, perfect for entertaining friends and family. Homeowners and tenants can make use of two large double bedrooms - one with an ensuite bathroom - a main bathroom, built-in wardrobes, and ample storage space. Some of the dual level apartments also boasts dressing rooms, offices and mezzanine galleries overlooking the floor space below with some balcony views.

What you choose to do with the extra space is entirely up to you! Whether you wish to use the additional floor as a large master bedroom designed like a luxury hotel suite, a hobby room, a snug, extra storage space or a fun spare room for grandchildren to stay, the space can function to suit your lifestyle and requirements and is completely flexible.

With mezzanine apartments available across four of our communities, the space is ready and waiting for you to move into, you just need to choose the location that suits you...

Renaissance Marlborough has just two mezzanine apartments remaining, one boasts beautiful views of the neighbouring bowls green and the other overlooks the stunning gardens at the community. The community is set in the heart of the historic market town offering the perfect combination of countryside and community. The town has a rich heritage and abundance of everyday amenities, shops and restaurants and if you're wanting to escape to nature, it's easy to head out for a country walk from your home without having to drive. The homes are ready to move into now, with a flourishing community to welcome you.

Renaissance Wokingham has been designed for independent living, with wonderful social spaces to enjoy time with like-minded neighbours, friends and family including a lounge and landscaped communal gardens. The community also boasts a town centre location with pedestrian access to all amenities of the high street.

If you're looking for a home in the ever-popular county of Berkshire then Renaissance Sandhurst and Crowthorne both offer stylish mezzanine homes and beautifully landscaped gardens and communal spaces to spend time with neighbours, whether that's at the regular coffee mornings or for an evening drink together before retreating back to your personal space. 

For those looking for an idyllic retirement by the sea then Renaissance Poole offers the perfect choice.
