Connells estate agency has won the race to be the selling agent for Taunton’s newest upcoming community – Riverside at Coal Orchard. This mixed-use development of homes, leisure facilities and restaurants is located on the waterfront, next to the Somerset County Cricket Club in the centre of the town.
Part of a contemporary riverside regeneration scheme, the new plaza will consist of various commercial opportunities and attractions, plus 40 one and two bedroom luxury apartments above. The site is expected to launch in spring 2020 with a show apartment due in the autumn.
“Connells is delighted to be the sole residential agent marketing this exciting development, and to assist in the successful regeneration of this enviable area into a wonderful new community,” says Paul Matthews, Connells New Homes Board of Management Partner. “With so many fantastic amenities on its doorstep, Riverside at Coal Orchard creates a unique place to live, work and play, and we look forward to sharing it with our customers next year.”
Cllr Marcus Kravis, Executive Councillor for Economic Development at Somerset West and Taunton says: “This development respects the character of Coal Orchard and will bring new vitality to the area putting the River Tone at the heart of Taunton. The plans are carefully created to strike a balance between retaining the character of the Coal Orchard, enhancing the environment reflecting our Garden Town status, and delivering our aspirations for growth.”
