Moving to the Arbour is a great decision for many reasons, but it is one that requires a great deal of thought and input. The Arbour was conceived in order to make this decision a little bit easier and we hope to be of assistance to you.
The Arbour offers independent over 55’s living with access to otherwise hard to reach leisure facilities, social networks, security and support services. Our dedicated team relieve you of tiresome home maintenance so you can concentrate on interests and activities that you care about. We maintain the extensive gardens, parklands and common areas so you can enjoy “acres without the ache”. The exemplary design of our homes has been thoughtfully considered to deliver privacy, solar orientation and space.
As well as your own home, you have access to The Enclave which houses resort-style private facilities that you and your guests are encouraged to enjoy at your leisure. You have access to a diverse range of activities and social events on offer – the freedom is yours to participate in as little or as much as you like. The Enclave is also fully maintained by our team so you can simply enjoy the incredible facilities without any hassle.
YES, we are a pet friendly Village
At The Arbour we welcome pets within the guideline of ‘good neighbour’ principles. We understand the significant role pets play in our Residents’ lives as companions and how they promote physical and emotional well-being. Your furry friends will relish the extensive parklands as you head out and explore.
Supporting your quality lifestyle
Our team is there to support your needs and endeavours, providing a sense of security and fostering a vibrant community life that engages seamlessly with the broader Berry community. We take care of the little things like mowing the lawns and cleaning high windows – plus each house has an emergency call system that provides 24/7 assistance if you need it. Everything has been designed with over 55’s in mind.
Privacy and community
The privacy of our homes is complemented by opportunities for a diverse range of social, physical and intellectual pursuits. Our Residents may choose to participate in such activities as exercise classes, Bridge Club, morning teas, gardening, social BBQ’s, bushwalking, woodworking, progressive dinners, bookchat, golfing, charity work and Landcare to name but a few.
