YOU test drive a car, try on a new outfit and now there’s an invitation to live in your new home before committing to buy it.
There is the opportunity to stay in the actual cottage that could become your new home at The Priory retirement village near Abbotskerswell. This is the ideal opportunity to find out if the two bedroom property and the lifestyle on offer suit you.
The Try before You Buy scheme has proved popular at The Priory, and other Retirement Villages Ltd locations. It gives those interested in buying a new home the chance to enjoy a complimentary overnight stay, to get involved in village activities and to meet the neighbours over coffee.
Some guests have been so taken with the lifestyle and the properties they have reserved their new home before leaving.
“Some people find it difficult to imagine themselves living in a retirement village,” said Retirement Villages’ Sales and Marketing Director Sarah Burgess. “Owning your own home while having exclusive access to such extensive communal facilities isn’t the kind of lifestyle many people will have experienced before. I always describe the Try Before You Buy scheme as giving people the chance to ‘see and feel’ how it could work for them.”
Number 21 The Priory is a charming mid terrace cottage, currently the village’s show home. It is attached to the main Priory building and comprises a kitchen, sitting room, shower room and two bedrooms, the master with dual aspect windows and garden views. Outside there is a private patio.
The cottage is priced at £245,000 leasehold. To find out more visit the website To book your Try Before You Buy stay call 0845 5211857.
