Meet you on Main Street

Farm World News - - Farm World 2016 -

Re­tire­ment Com­mu­ni­ties Aus­tralia (RCA) wel­comed the first res­i­dents of Main Street Vil­lage, Pak­en­ham in De­cem­ber. Lo­cated lit­er­ally in Main Street, this bou­tique style vil­lage of­fers easy ac­cess to lo­cal shops and the train sta­tion on foot, with med­i­cal ser­vices and hos­pi­tals just down the road, and a plethora of lo­cal at­trac­tions in the wider area. Foun­tain Gate Shop­ping Cen­tre is just 20 min­utes away, and Mel­bourne CBD is less than an hour via the free­way or train.

With metropoli­tan Mel­bourne to the west and ru­ral Gipp­s­land to the east, cool moun­tains to the north and the coast to the south, liv­ing in Pak­en­ham of­fers the best of all worlds. A day at the beach, a drive through the majestic forests of the Dan­de­nongs, or a pic­nic and a day trip through Gipp­s­land's rolling land­scape are all within an hour’s drive. For those who en­joy the good things in life, gor­geous lo­cal pro­duce from the Farm­ers Mar­kets or straight from the farm gate is read­ily avail­able.

Main Street Vil­lage is be­ing built on the for­mer Pak­en­ham Con­sol­i­dated School site. The iconic Al­ge­rian oak tree that graces the en­trance was planted by a for­mer pupil at the school in 1901 to com­mem­o­rate Fed­er­a­tion. The tree is pro­tected through its her­itage sta­tus and will be a beau­ti­ful land­mark at the en­trance of the bou­tique style vil­lage.

Main Street Vil­lage will pro­vide a bou­tique liv­ing en­vi­ron­ment, with just 129 in­de­pen­dent liv­ing vil­las and a choice of four dif­fer­ent floor plans. All vil­las have 2 bed­rooms, 2 bath­rooms, a study, a dou­ble lock-up garage and range in size.

As in all RCA vil­lages, the com­mu­nal fa­cil­i­ties will be sec­ond to none, with a re­sort style Club­house of­fer­ing in­door pool, gym­na­sium, pam­per cen­tre, con­sult­ing rooms, li­brary, bar, lounge and much more. A lawn bowls green will sit ad­ja­cent to the exclusive Club­house.

Con­struc­tion is well un­der­way, and the on­site sales of­fice is open ev­ery day from 10am till 4pm. There are three new fully fur­nished dis­play homes to in­spect and the Club­house is due for com­ple­tion in late 2016. The ket­tle is al­ways on, and visi­tors are wel­come to en­joy a cuppa and a chat af­ter a tour of the vil­lage!
