Growing demand for Cape Town’s luxury retirement apartments

An increasing number of SA’s senior individuals and couples are opting to move into retirement homes and apartments within ‘retirement lifestyle estates’, a term that denotes far more than just accommodation. It includes a large number of lifestyle benefits as well.

Says Phil Wilson, National Sales Manager of Evergreen Lifestyles, SA’s first national award-winning retirement brand, “Evergreen Lifestyles retirement villages, situated throughout the country, offer a variety of homes, cottages and now apartments – all catering to a range of tastes and preferences, and offering the benefit of numerous upmarket facilities.” 

“The apartments, which have been introduced more recently to the market, have been selling extremely well,” he explains. “At Evergreen Diep River, launched in April 2013, 80% of units in this apartment-only complex have been sold, with only 10 remaining,” says Wilson. Lock-up-and-go 1-bedroom apartments are available from as little as R600 000, with sought-after large 2-bedroom apartments also available from  R1,650,000. All offer the purchaser immediate occupation. 

Evergreen Diep River apartments boast spacious balconies with wonderful mountain views. Facilities include a popular bistro, TV and open plan lounge, bar, library and large entertainment areas. All this plus the benefits of an indoor heated pool, well-equipped gym and nurses’ station. This sought-after complex is also fully secure, with underground parking and manned security, including 24-hour patrols, which provide total peace of mind.

“Phase 1 of Evergreen Muizenberg, which comprises homes and cottages, with ample car-parking space and private gardens, is sold out,” continues Wilson. “Phase 2 now introduces a wide selection of stylish studios, one- and two-bedroom lock-up-and-go apartments, available from R500 000.”

Lifestyle benefits include all the very latest in modern facilities, 24-hour manned security, all in close proximity to medical facilities, shopping malls and entertainment attractions.

With today’s retirement villages having made big shifts away from merely serving the aged to now meeting the requirements of a more active and discerning society, these retirement lifestyle apartments offer all the privilege of a convenient, lock-up-and-go lifestyle (perfect for those who travel more frequently), within a safe and secure environment that fosters community, but also values privacy. 

Evergreen's integrated approach to healthcare also caters for changing needs within a continuing-care community – providing the ability to relax in the knowledge that, should you need it, help is at always at hand.
