Description
Exceptional retirement living now has a new home.

To keep the wonderful heritage of this site it is named The Orchards, which preserves its link to the days of the strawberry and peach orchard growers. In making this a unique and charming retirement village, we have spared no detail to ensure this is as good as retirement living gets.

The Orchards is home to a vibrant new community. This intimate village has become a home to a community where you know your neighbours by name, yet still maintain your privacy.

The village also offers a continuum of care with rest home and residential hospital level care on-site and a maintenance-free lifestyle with a security call system, all for your peace of mind.

Call Jan today to arrange an appointment to view.

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.
