Exciting Times at Elmswood


It’s thrilling times ahead for Elmswood Retirement Village as they finally move into the first phase of a makeover renovation, starting with their classic villas and the serviced units wing within the main building.

 

 

The villas’ remodelling and interior overhaul will see each villa fitted with an impressive designer kitchen, spacious open plan living and a new guest toilet. The outlook to the beautiful established trees, garden and green spaces will remain.

Soon available is one classic villa that’s had its renovation and remodelling work nearly completed and will be ready to move in to for Christmas.

The serviced units within the main building are also in their first stage of renovation. The work will be carried out in stages so that the transition is smooth and seamless.

Mid-2020, newly renovated apartments and studios will become available and are now pre-selling.

The renovations of these apartments and studios will see some major changes designed to enhance the living space, while at the same time original features will be retained. The renovations will give a fresh look and feel very much the same as the new attached hospital.

Sales Consultant Donna Monk says it’s exciting to see the changes happening day by day. “We’re working on similar footprints as before, but the renovations will bring the village up to where it needs to be for our residents going into the future.”
