Bethanie a winner with lifestyle village
AGED-CARE and retirement-living provider Bethanie received two accolades for its Esprit lifestyle village at the recent 2017 Master Builders Building Excellence Awards South West.
The Eaton development for over-55s was awarded Most Liveable Homes in recognition of its accessibility and design features that took into account the needs of an ageing population.
Access considerations, such as flat-level entrances to wide front doors and an accessible toilet and shower on the entry level, were included in the design phase to avoid the need add them at a later time, with extra cost.
Esprit also took home the award for Multiresidential Developments over $2 million.
“The planning process for Bethanie Esprit has focused on how we can offer our residents a wider range of accommodation options than previously offered at any other lifestyle village in WA,” Bethanie CEO Chris How said.
“The new clubhouse, in the heart of the community, with accompanying bowling green, putting course, men's shed, barbecue area and heated swimming pool, provides the perfect place for residents to get settled into the vibrant Bethanie community lifestyle.”
The lifestyle village is ideal for people who are looking to downsize, while the central South-west location provides access to some outstanding recreational opportunities.
“Choose a direction and you'll find worlds of discovery,” Mr How said.
“South to the coastal hinterlands and vineyards, east to the picturesque Ferguson Valley and the hills of the Wellington District bushlands, north to Mandurah and Perth, west to clean beaches and the estuary with all the delights of swimming, diving, crabbing and fishing – all before returning to the Esprit village to catch up with friends over a glass of wine.”
There are 13 villas for sale, with prices starting from $399,000 and each feature two double bedrooms, a study, bathroom, powder room and double-lock-up garage.
The Bethanie Esprit lifestyle village, at 97 Illawarra Drive, Eaton, is open Fridays from 24pm.
