“A positive and supportive approach to active and healthy aging means recognising seniors as valued members of society who contribute their considerable skills, knowledge and experiences to their families and communities,” says Phil Wilson, National Sales Manager for Evergreen Lifestyles, SA’s leading national retirement brand.
Evergreen strongly believes that a vital key to enjoying a happier and healthier retirement is through the development of supportive and age-friendly environments that provide senior residents with access to programs and services that fulfill their needs and interests. A true expression of this is a sparkling new leisure centre launched in November 2014 at Evergreen’s flagship village in Muizenberg.
“The leisure centre is a fantastic addition to this award-winning village,” comments Wilson. “It is a real asset to our village offering, and an exciting benefit for those lucky enough to call our village their home,” he says. “Splendid locations, high quality care and superb resort-style amenities are what our Evergreen retirement villages, such as Muizenberg, stand for,” he continues, “designed exclusively for those wishing to eliminate homeowner responsibilities, relax, and enjoy retirement living at its best!”
New facilities at the state-of-the-art leisure centre include a popular bistro, as well as beautifully appointed dining and lounge area, an indoor heated pool, a library and snooker and games room, with opportunities for residents to maintain a regular exercise and fitness routine in the centre’s new well-equipped gym and exercise area. One can also enjoy invigorating walks along the beach and nearby mountain reserves, dips in the warm Indian Ocean, while living in close proximity to amenities including theatres, nature reserves and shops.
Catering perfectly to a spirited community of fun-loving people. The new leisure centre also allows residents to enjoy regularly scheduled activities such as pool, bridge & photographic clubs, poetry and music appreciation groups and choir meetings. Drinks evenings and popular month-end dinners also form part of the vibrant social calendar at this popular village.
“Activities are only limited by residents’ imagination!” states Wilson, “and Muizenberg’s team of dedicated staff are always on hand to help people to socialise, exercise, explore or simply relax and enjoy their retirement in one of the most stunning and convenient Cape Coastal locations.”
The sought-after village also boasts excellent security, with manned access points, electric fencing, CCTV cameras, 24-hour patrols and push-button assistance. Phase 1 of Evergreen Muizenberg, which comprises 70 homes and cottages, with ample parking and private gardens, is sold out.
Those joining this established and burgeoning community will be able to tap into an enviable lifestyle and enjoy Phase 2’s selection of stylish studios, one- and two-bedroom lock-up-and-go apartments, available from only R550 000 – and selling fast! These apartments make for privacy and luxury living of the highest standard, designed to maximise space, natural light, and mountain or sea views.
