Independent living in apartments and villas
Set in lovely gardens on a commanding site at 42 Herd Road, Hillsborough, Auckland, the village is next door to Monte Cecilia Park and some apartments have views to the Manukau Harbour. With easy access to the Southern Motorway and ten minutes from the airport, residents find its location to be very convenient. It’s close to supermarkets and a range of shops, banks, pharmacies and so on at Royal Oak and Onehunga.
There are 24 villas around the east and north side of the 12 acre site and there are 221 apartments in seven buildings. Car parking is provided for each villa as a part of the dwelling and for most apartments in underground car parks.
A monthly service fee is levied on each dwelling to cover maintenance costs, insurance on dwellings, street lighting, rates and other related costs such as rubbish removal. The service fee also includes a contribution to a sinking fund which is used to pay for long-term external maintenance of the dwellings and infrastructure. The monthly fee is currently $665 and is fixed for life at the time of signing the agreement.
More information about the villas, apartments and life at the village can be obtained through the sales office: phone 8450791
Selwyn Heights’ care home provides rest home and hospital level care.

NOTE: The Retirement Villages Act 2003 (The Act) is designed to provide improved protection for people who ‘buy’ into a retirement village. If you intend to ‘purchase’ you must get independent legal advice before signing your occupation right agreement as required under The Act. Some Retirement Village type facilities are not required to register under The Act so different legal requirements apply. Please make sure you investigate fully.

 

In some villages there may be some Retirement Village units that have multiple uses e.g. a Serviced Apartment may also be used as a Residential Care Suite. The same unit may therefore show in several places on Eldernet.
