New retirement villas to be built at Yanchep

Construction will start next month on the next stage of Bethanie Beachside Retirement Village in Yanchep, with 16 new two-bedroom, 1.5 bathroom villas to be built.

Located adjacent to the Bethanie Beachside Aged Care Home and 45 existing independent
living units, the new villas will be built by the YHB Group and are expected to be completed by June next year.

Priced from $399,000, the villas will feature high quality finishes, lots of storage, high
ceilings, courtyard and alfresco areas and a well-designed streetscape, Bethanie said in a statement. There are also four floor plan options for purchasers.

Bethanie Chief Executive Officer, Chris How said the new villas would expand on the
established Beachside retirement community.

“Beachside Retirement Village offers a friendly, safe and social environment where residents can meet new and like-minded people, enjoy engaging activities, learn new skills, or simply just relax,” Mr How said.

“A third stage comprising a further 17 villas is also being planned after considerable interest has been shown in the latest development, where 80 per cent of the project has been sold off the plan.”

The retirement village is located near the beautiful northern suburb beaches and Yanchep
National Park, offering a balance of beach and bush living.

Bethanie Beachside is already home to a vibrant community which enjoys a busy social calendar of quiz nights, movie nights, barbecues, bingo and sundowners.

Resident Denise Willoughby (pictured) moved into her Beachside home with her husband after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Mrs Willoughby said the co-located aged care home at the site meant the couple could plan for the longer term.

It was Mrs Willoughby’s daughter who initially brought the couple to visit Bethanie
Beachside. They instantly fell in love with the picturesque location close to the beach and national park.

The villa suited them both with the ease of driving or walking to nearby locations, including one of their favourite places ‘The Lagoon’ where they enjoy a coffee while overseeing the coastline.

“My favourite moments are driving down to The Lagoon and getting a coffee,” she said.

“I love the social aspect. All I have to do is walk over the road and there is always company. The biggest thing for me has been peace of mind because there is always somebody at the village that will give you a hand.”
