Mezzanine living is the perfect fit for Marlborough couple

When local residents Anne and Robin were looking to downsize, they didn’t have far to go when moving into their brand new two-bed home at Renaissance’s Marlborough development. The couple viewed more than a dozen properties over the years when looking to move from their four-bed detached house, but knew they wanted to stay in the area.

“We chose this particular mezzanine home because of the space it offered us,” said Robin. “The additional space means we can fit a super king bed in our bedroom and the kitchen is twice the size of many others we looked at. Anne wouldn’t move anywhere without a decent size kitchen!

“With the mezzanine level, the layout of the home is just right. Every apartment here is different too so it’s nice that each has its own character and style. For example, we particularly liked that our kitchen leads off the hallway, rather than the lounge. The oriel window in the dining room is also a nice design feature.”

“We had actually reserved at another retirement development the year before but when our building phase was postponed, we decided to keep looking” added Anne. “That’s when we came across Marlborough. We love that it’s much cosier and intimate compared to some of the larger developments and is designated for independent living so does not have a “care” home feel. We’re very happy with the size of the communal facilities and enjoy socialising with the friends we’ve made.”

Even before they moved into Marlborough, Renaissance had started to make Anne and Robin’s lives easier with Lifestory Homemoves. “It’s an excellent service and the removal men worked like trojans on the hottest day of the year. We were very grateful for all their help,” added Anne.

Renaissance’s Marlborough development sits at the former Old Yard in the heart of the town, offering a stunning collection of one- and two-bedroom homes, owners’ lounge, landscaped gardens and luxurious guest suite.

With homes available to rent or buy, Renaissance Marlborough offers both freedom and flexibility, prices for a one-bedroom apartment start from £295,000. To book a private tour, contact the team on 01672 340012 or email [email protected].
