Location, location, location – for 50+ retirees, Mount Edgecombe’s newly launched upmarket Kindlewood Estate, “The Village” pivots on its prime location in every sense of the word.
Set within the multigenerational Kindlewood Estate, Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village recently threw open its doors to The Village, its second and final phase of this resoundingly successful residential estate. Life at The Village is all about stylish, contemporary, open-plan, maintenance-free living, with a choice of eight semi-detached two or three-bed maisonette configurations – with gardens and upstairs green views – or three airy designs of three or four-bed freestanding homes.
Location is certainly immensely appealing in that The Village is within Kindlewood Estate and its established facilities, high-level security, and green, mature landscape, but the connotation of “location” in the retirement space has a far bigger, broader meaning.
Living close to family is a far cry from dependency, and it’s that independence which retirees relish. Being able to visit those close to you – and reciprocate – yet celebrate independence, keeps important relationships on a strong, healthy footing. It’s shared experiences, not a shared living situation, which allows everyone space to breathe and retain their own individuality and lifestyle.
When choosing a home in which to enjoy retirement, there’s always a strong focus on on-site facilities. Yes, they’re important, but equally so should be those in the vicinity or neighbourhood. It’s about continuing many great elements of an existing lifestyle, enjoying easy access to beaches, golf courses, international airports, world-class medical care, entertainment, and even award-winning eateries. It’s as wonderful to go out to an art exhibition, as it is to enjoy a birding walk on the Estate – every life needs a balance, and that involves venturing out one day to friends and activities, and the next enjoying your own garden and home-ground comforts.
At The Village, retirement is about making the one you have, better and easier. It’s about creating an environment where you can retain your friends, pets, hobbies, and lifestyle, yet have wonderful security and a safety net for the future. A well-chosen central location puts you right in the heart of all the people and places you value, yet still with independence high on the list of priorities. As developer Geoff Perkins says, “The Village is custom-made for the younger, active retiree who may or may have retired from work, but certainly not from an active life! These homes and the estate facilities are crafted for those who want a live-out-loud lifestyle.”
Traditionally, “location, location, location” refers to investment. A good location equates to a good investment, which sees your property grow in value. Living in The Village, you have the right North Coast address and the perfect position, secure within a well-established gated estate. Location means you’ll never have to worry about struggling to sell your home, or even a diminished inheritance for your children. The key element which drives value, is location. You’ve worked hard for this – now it must work for you.
“Purchasing a quality property of this nature will always provide a good return on investment,” says Perkins, “whether it’s financial or the value it adds to your life. At The Village, we envisage it offering both.”
With the launch of MERV’s final phase, The Village, discerning buyers have the perfect range of properties from which to choose and live the good life within Kindlewood Estate. Priced from R2,95-million, this is where your story continues, right in the heart of the Mount Edgecombe area.
