Western Suburbs Weekly - - Coastal & Country -

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.
