Shared ownership at Quantock House

At Platinum Skies Taunton we offer affordable and flexible purchase options through our government approved shared ownership scheme. With a Platinum Skies property, you purchase a share – typically 50% of the property – then pay the remaining balance in rent.

Along with a low service charge for upkeep and maintenance, the rent can be paid from your pension or by investing any spare capital from the sale of your current home.

Additional support for home owners

A helping hand, a watchful eye, it’s what independence is made of and it’s how our communities and your new neighbours look out for each other.

It’s a real weight off your mind to know you always have someone on hand to call on, not only in an emergency but for everyday matters too. With Platinum Skies, that someone is your Community Manager. Of all the new friends you’ll make, your Community Manager is the one we’ve handpicked to make sure you always feel safe, supported and special.

And in later life, if more specialist care is needed, our Care Quality Commission registered personal care team is on hand, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to support your independence.

“The best bit about living here is having a lovely apartment, being able to do what you want to do, take part in what you want to take part in. If you want to be alone, you can be alone. If you feel like company, you can have company.”
