Description
The Masonic Villages Trust is committed to Masonic beliefs and principles, and the advancement of Freemasonry as an effective force for good in the community.

It is therefore dedicated to enhancing the quality of living for older people appropriate to their individual needs and rights.

Woburn Apartments replaces the old 1960's Woburn Masonic flats. The Apartments opened on February 20th 2015 and are being completed in 2 stages. The first houses 47 apartments and the second stage, due early 2017 will add another 39. We will have a combination of 1, 2 & 3 bedroom apartments all sold under an ORA contract.

The first stage has a Bar, Conservatory and a Men's Shed as public spaces, Stage 2 will feature a cafe/lounge with alfresco dining, a second bar, health suite, business centre, snooker room, theatre and arts & crafts room.

The Apartments are finished to a very high standard and have all the features you might expect.

The theme of the Apartments is contemporary art-deco.

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. The DHB Shared Services website provides additional information about this service.
