Special Features
Stevenson Village is exceptional in that it provides, for physically idependent people of limited means, low cost rental units in a village atmosphere with the security of daily attending Managers.

In 1977 a joint venture between Howick Returned Services Association and Sir William and Lady Stevenson saw the development of the Stevenson Village which consisted of 35 Home Units, a Village Hall and Manager's residence.

The units, designed to maximise the sun, are built in blocks of two,three or four. They are constructed in a style that resembles the early Fencible cottages in the original settlement of Howick Village.

Although residents are encouraged to maintain their independence and outside interests there is regular opportunity to enjoy the companionship of others in the Village and friends and family are welcome to visit. The carpeted Village Hall with its well stocked library, piano, organ, kitchen and recreational facilities is a focal point for this.

Our on site Managers make daily contact with residents, and as well as attending to grounds and maintenance ensure the smooth running of the Village.
