Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEW LIVING -

NOT-FOR-PROFIT aged care provider SwanCare has launched a dis­play apart­ment in its new $20 mil­lion re­tire­ment com­plex Akora in Bent­ley Park.

The pub­lic is in­vited to view the ground-floor unit, which fea­tures an open­plan de­sign, two bed­rooms, a study and two bath­rooms.

SwanCare chief ex­ec­u­tive Gra­ham Fran­cis said the dis­play apart­ment re­flected the next gen­er­a­tion of re­tire­ment vil­lage ac­com­mo­da­tion, where the em­pha­sis was on se­cu­rity, com­fort and life­style.

“The hall­mark of Akora is con­tem­po­rary apart­ments built for res­i­dents who want to be able to lock up and leave if they like to travel, but who also want the peace of mind of know­ing that care as­sis­tance is avail­able,” Mr Fran­cis said.

The com­plex will be eco-friendly with an av­er­age seven-star rating for each apart­ment’s en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and ther­mal com­fort, as well as in­cor­po­rat­ing wa­ter­ef­fi­cient fix­tures and fit­tings, LED light­ing, mo­tion sen­sors, rooftop so­lar sys­tem and an elec­tric­ity mon­i­tor­ing pack­age to re­duce en­ergy con­sump­tion and running costs.

Res­i­dents will also en­joy Akora’s com­mu­nal ar­eas, in­clud­ing a pro­posed ground­floor cafe, res­i­dents’ lounge, mez­za­nine area and out­door pi­azza with land­scaped gar­dens, all smoke-free.

De­signed by Sil­ver Thomas Han­ley and Hil­lam Ar­chi­tects, the Akora com­plex will fea­ture 44 stylish apart­ments to be com­pleted in Oc­to­ber, with one, two and twobed­room with study con­fig­u­ra­tions start­ing from $475,000.

The dis­play unit on the cor­ner of Adie Court and Jar­rah Road is avail­able for in­spec­tion by ap­point­ment.
