Independent living

Overview

IMG_8713_10perOutlook Gardens Christian Retirement Village was completed in 1992 and consists of 52 units of different designs grouped around four courtyards.  The design of the units and the general environment give an impression of cosiness and intimacy, yet each unit ensures privacy.

Christians from all walks of life and from many different denominations have found the village to provide a loving and caring community.  All units are provided with up to date features and fittings and are specially designed to make life easy and comfortable.  There are different design and layouts, size varying from 7.5 to 11 squares.
Emergency call button systems are fitted to each unit.

Village units are “resident funded” via a Licence Agreement which gives you the right to live in a particular unit for a lifetime.  A monthly Resident Service fee is also charged, which covers all outside maintenance and lighting, gardening, building insurance and internal equipment.
