Construction will start on the next stage of Bethanie Beachside Retirement Village in Yanchep, with 16 two-bedroom villas to be built.
Located next to the Bethanie Beachside Aged Care Home and 45 existing independent living units, the new villas, each with a study, will be built by the YHB Group and are expected to be completed by June next year.
Starting from $399,000, the villas will feature high quality finishes, lots of storage, high ceilings, courtyard and alfresco areas and a well-designed streetscape. There are four floor plan options.
Bethanie chief executive Chris How said the villas would expand on the established Beachside retirement community.
"Beachside Retirement Village offers a friendly, safe and social environment where residents can meet new and like-minded people, enjoy engaging activities, learn new skills, or simply just relax," Mr How said.
"A third stage comprising a further 17 villas is also being planned after considerable interest has been shown in the latest development, where 80 per cent of the project has been sold off the plan."
Denise Willoughby moved into her Beachside home with her husband after he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.
She said the co-located aged care home meant the couple could plan for the longer term.
It was their daughter who initially brought the couple to visit the village after seeing a newspaper advertisement. They instantly fell in love with the picturesque location.
The new villa suited them both with the ease of driving or walking to nearby locations, including one of their favourite places, The Lagoon, where they enjoy a coffee.
"My favourite moments are driving down to The Lagoon and getting a coffee," Denise said. "I love the social aspect. All I have to do is walk over the road and there is always company. The biggest thing for me has been peace of mind because there is always somebody at the village that will give you a hand."
