More than half the units were reserved at the recent launch of phase one of Evergreen Noordhoek Lifestyle Village, says Arthur Case, CEO of Evergreen Lifestyle.
“The quick take-up of units at this initial launch reflects the pressing need for more accommodation for retired people.”
The retirement village is set on a site of over 16 ha, large enough to allow the developers to include plenty of private open space and walking trails, and with views across the Atlantic Ocean towards Chapmans Peak.
The village will consist of 150 houses and 200 apartments on a hillside site near Noordhoek and Fish Hoek. In addition to the housing units, a lifestyle centre is planned, with facilities that include a gym, a heated pool, a care centre offering primary healthcare services and frail care, and various recreational services.
An on-site bowling green and tennis court will also be available, according to Case.
“The starting price is a life right of R2.1 million for a three-bedroom house with two bathrooms and a double garage,” says Case. “And, since there are so many units in this complex, the benefits of scale mean that monthly levies should not be subject to major inflation.”
Case says the development is ideal for residents from their late 50s.
“Looking towards retirement, if you move into a village like this you can live independently in a secure residential estate with facilities available on your doorstep at no extra cost, enjoying the nearby beaches and mountains. At a later stage, should you suffer health issues, no other move is needed, since the lifestyle village offers medical and frail care services.”
Homes in the first phase of the development will be available to move into from the end of this year, with a further rollout following.
