Independent living

Overview

IMG_8713_10perOutlook Gardens Christian Retirement Village consists of 52 uniquely designed units spread around four homely courtyards.  The design of the village seeks to balance homeliness, privacy and community, all in a welcoming and relaxing garden setting.  Christians from all walks of life enjoy the Village’s loving and caring community.

The units vary in size from 7.5 to 11 squares and are equipped with modern amenities designed to make life in the Village relaxing and stress-free.  To provide further reassurance, each unit contains an emergency call button system.

Village units operate through a Licence Agreement which gives you the right to live in your unit for a lifetime.  A monthly Resident Service fee is also charged, which covers the ongoing running costs of the Village.

Licence Fee

Currently the licence fees are:

  • $190,000 for a 1 bedroom unit;
  • $225,000 for a standard 2 bedroom unit; and
  • up to $240,000 for a larger than standard unit.

Once a unit is vacated, Outlook Gardens will seek to secure a new licensee as quickly as possible.  When Outlook Gardens receives payment of the new licence fee, we will refund the vacating resident with the amount of the original licence fee less a “deferred management fee”.  This fee is reinvested in the Village.  The amount of the deferred management fee increases progressively for the first five years, to a maximum of 30%.IMG_8717_10per

Residence Service Fees

Currently the Residence Service Fees are $285 per month.  This fee covers building insurance, water rates, security lighting around the village, garden maintenance, lawn mowing and external maintenance of the units.
