Our latest project has been the 57 apartment Betty Pyatt building which opened in July 2016 and the new residents are all asking each other why they had left it so long .They are having a ball.
Built to maximise the views of the Waitemata Harbour, these outstanding one, two and three bedroom apartments were designed by multi-award-winning New Zealand architects, Archimedia and have modern conveniences included in the price and offer amazing value in a central Auckland location.
Located in the north west corner of the Village, the Paterson apartment building consists of a two storey block of nine apartments and a three storey block of twenty-four apartments connected by a bright atrium.
In the centre of the Village you will find Lichfield Tower. This building captures magnificent harbour views and every 1 and 2 bedroom apartment is north facing.

OCCUPATION RIGHT AGREEMENT
There are 50 free-standing, independent ‘Occupation Right Agreement’ villas situated in Kenneth Small Crescent , Bambury Close and Harbour View and 250 apartments in six separate multi-storey buildings which form part of the Selwyn Village retirement complex.
The ‘Agreement’ allows for the occupancy of an unit for as long as it may be needed. However occupants do not purchase the land on which the dwelling stands. The ORAs are secured by a first charge encumbrance granted in favour of the statutory supervisor (Covenant Trustee Services Ltd).
Residents have the support of The Selwyn Foundation Group in terms of governance, management and administration.
Independent villas have the following design features:
Two double bedrooms; an open plan kitchen / dining / lounge area; an attached carport/garage/storage; a separate laundry; a garden area for personal use; a twenty-four hour emergency alarm system which connects to staff.There is a registered nurse on site 24hrs per day.

Selwyn Village is responsible for exterior maintenance – ie; painting, repairs to the roof and guttering, etc and is also to maintain the lawns, driveways, footpaths and common garden areas.
Residents are responsible for internal maintenance, and for care of their own garden, should they cultivate one.
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 refuse 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 entry price of the dwelling is determined by the Village. A percentage of this price is retained by the Village upon termination of the ‘Agreement’ and this varies according to the length of time the dwelling has been occupied.

THE SELWYN FOUNDATION GROUP
- The Selwyn Foundation has been around for a very long time.
Selwyn’s residents mirror New Zealand society as a whole, having people from all kinds of backgrounds, life experiences and interests. These days, people entering our retirement villages are older - now that people are living and remaining active for much longer.
Nevertheless, people residing in Rest Homes as well as those living independently, are encouraged to live as full a life as is humanly possible through maintaining existing links with community activities such as the RSA Club, local churches, Probus, U3A and sports clubs. Organised activities are on offer too – and managers are always interested in hearing of new ideas for activities, outings and social gatherings.
Today’s retirement villages are the culmination of over 50 years of progress. It was towards the late 1940s that the Anglican Church’s Auckland City Mission became very concerned about the plight of elderly people to cope in sometimes dilapidated houses, often too large for them once children had grown up and moved away.
The Mission had already done considerable work with older people by 1954 when the first 20 retired people became residents at Selwyn Village in Point Chevalier. This was the first rest home and retirement complex of its kind built in New Zealand. It still exists, although almost grown beyond recognition.
In 1967, the Mission arranged for the creation of The Selwyn Foundation as a separate charitable trust, specifically set up to look after this special concern for the needs of older people in our society.
Named after George Augustus Selwyn, first Anglican Bishop of New Zealand, the Foundation is an independent perpetual trust and not-for-profit organisation. Selwyn owns or manages retirement facilities in Northland, throughout greater Auckland and in the Waikato. It continues to grow and flourish - it is here to stay!
- Providing quality Christian care for the elderly.
The Selwyn Foundation Group invites you to take a closer look at our commitment to Christian values, quality care, accommodation and services, which continue to make us a leader in the provision of a wide range of accommodation and service options for the elderly in New Zealand.
It is committed to promoting the health and wellbeing of all residents through the ‘Selwyn Way’ wellness concept.
The Selwyn Foundation Group owns and manages a number of facilities throughout the North Island, and is one of the largest not-for-profit providers of aged care in New Zealand.
We place a high value on honesty and mutual respect. We strive to see our people fulfilled through the creation of work environments, where openness, communication, teamwork and safety are paramount. Our staff and volunteers share a specific interest in older adults, and undertake ongoing training in the particular needs of those in their care.
We strive to achieve excellence, continually seeking means for improvement and innovation in our care and services. Furthermore, we will, with integrity, adopt the highest standards of ethical behaviour in all our activities: care, legal, financial, environmental and all business practices.
