In Later Life Choice Really Does Matter

Issue 61

At every stage of life, there are many questions that homeowners must answer. With more than one in five of us now aged 60 or over, one such question is where to live later in life. Specialist property developer, Pegasus may well have the answer, especially for Newcastle's later living market.

Pegasus’ Jesmond Assembly is Lifestory’s latest development in the heart of Jesmond, one of Newcastle’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. Designed by award-winning Newcastle architect FaulknerBrown, the exclusive collection of one and two-bedroom homes epitomise an innovative and stylish approach to later living: your own apartment in a place you can truly call home thanks to an ethos driven by community, exceptional service and wellbeing. Pegasus quite simply creates high-end homes ideal for a new generation of later living home buyers who want to remain independent.

Part of Pegasus’ ethos has also been rethinking and reinventing the communities and ways in which we live as we get older and Jesmond Assembly takes this to a whole new level with interiors that convey contemporary chic, elegance, and an understated wow factor. We are not getting old in the way that we used to, which is the appeal of Pegasus Jesmond Assembly. It is about moving or perhaps relocating to start the next chapter of your life and providing the opportunity to downsize to move up the luxury property ladder, the opposite of how many of us have come to view the concept.

Living at Pegasus Jesmond Assembly is a lifestyle choice and can be whatever owners want it to be. A secure “lock up a leave” while you travel on your next adventure or an enviable location from which to make the most of Newcastle’s incredible culture, cuisine and entertainment. Whatever your reason for moving home, this beautiful neighbourhood in the heart of Jesmond has everything discerning and independent over sixties might look for in their next move.

The development enjoys a prime position on one of Jesmond’s elegant, leafy avenues. As anyone in Newcastle knows, the neighbourhood has become one of the city’s finest districts with boutique shops, cafes, restaurants and many attractions. Jesmond Metro is a two-minute walk from the development making it easy to get wherever the fancy takes you.

The new building is designed to enhance the character of Eskdale Terrace and the wider Conservation Area, using modern forms influenced by traditional architecture. The site on which Jesmond Assembly has been created is of historic interest having once been home to Central Newcastle High School for Girls. The name Jesmond Assembly celebrates the trailblazing heritage of the school perfectly evoking the area’s history while the architecture reflects its future.

Stepping through the impressive entrance, owners will be greeted by a series of elegant and welcoming shared areas which offer a high-end experience. Here, owners will be able to make the most of socialising or entertaining guests in the inviting communal lounge or the beautiful landscaped terrace to the rear of the building. Owners of one of the contemporary and spacious homes will also enjoy a 24-hour concierge style service, where the on-site team of ‘Lifehosts’ make all the difference to living at Jesmond Assembly. The development provides a guest suite for visiting family and friends offering a place to retreat after enjoying a delicious bite to eat in the on-site social kitchen or the delights of Newcastle.

The stunning show home due to launch this September, will give potential purchasers the opportunity to see first-hand the light, contemporary and spacious homes available. The selection of one and two bedroom homes, some with Juliet balconies or terraces, offer open plan living areas, beautiful contemporary kitchens, well-appointed bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and bright, modern bathrooms. To view the development is to discover the exceptionally high specification and high standard of service which owners at Pegasus Jesmond Assembly can expect from taking care of building maintenance inside and out to ensuring the support provided is always tailored to owners needs.
