The Best Of Both Worlds

Property Type: Villa

Villa 34 is currently undergoing a top to toe renovation and will be ready for its new owners in Mid- August.

Situated on our northern boundary line, not only will it be brand spanking new inside, it has the added benefit of an already established garden and trees.

You do not need to compromise on your own private, outdoor space, yet you can still be a part of a thriving, friendly community of likeminded residents, offering you the best of both worlds.

When the full refurbishment is complete, the lucky new owners of this beautiful villa will enjoy;

• A large, modern kitchen with brand new appliances, stone benchtops, breakfast bar, and an abundance of storage
• Two toilets, new carpet, curtains and blinds throughout plus modern LED lighting.
• Under tile heating, double glazing and ceiling heating as well as a heat pump.
• Internal access garage with automatic door opener and carpet
• 24 emergency call bell access

Elmswood is small, boutique village community that offers residents a friendly and welcoming environment. Our central location allows residents to readily take advantage of the many amenities that Fendalton, Riccarton and central city Christchurch has to offer.

Our villas come in an array of different designs and floor plans, all surrounded by lovely established gardens that are beautifully maintained on your behalf.

Peace of mind is important for our residents and their families knowing there is 24-hour emergency call system and a variety of living options, from the independence of our villas, serviced apartments and studios to personalised care in our boutique hospital.

Call Jules on 021 241 9979 for further information.

The qualifying age to purchase an ORA at Elmswood is 75+

Visitors as usual (but not if you're unwell or recently returned from overseas)
Elmswood Retirement Village is centrally located in Christchurch, we are literally 15 minutes from almost anywhere – close to town and Fendalton Village, a short drive to the airport, and easy to reach for families as they travel to and from home and work. Our luxurious and comfortable boutique village is privately and locally owned, therefore close attention is paid to the smooth day to day running of the village.

Set amongst tranquil and established gardens, our and spacious village offers a wide variety of living options from the independence of our stunning villas through to serviced apartments that also offer rest home level care, as well as personalised care in our newly built hospital. Our residents say that not having to worry about going somewhere new, if they need extra care, brings them great peace of mind.

At Elmswood, we provide a genuine community and home for people. One where there is love, joy and laughter, as well as excellent care and the ability to be as independent as you are able to be.

If you would like a tour of our village, please contact Jules on 021 241 9979 to arrange an appointment.

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.
