Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village named top KZN retirement opportunity

The recent reveal in research conducted by New World Wealth and AfrAsia Bank has reported Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village to be one of the top 5 retirement estates within South Africa; based on the homes and facilities that are featured. This incredible achievement places Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village as the number one retirement offering in KwaZulu-Natal. 

Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village gained its accolade from its design and space, top medical services, immaculate garden areas and lush landscape, prime location, security features, as well as their activities and facilities offered in the broader estate. While Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village ticks all the boxes, we believe there are 5 top reasons that separate this product offering from others and explicitly shows why it’s leading in KwaZulu-Natal.

There is no mistaking that the team behind Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village have a lot to do with its success.  “It goes without saying that we are backed by leading experts, from South Africa’s leading specialist bank Investec to top medical partners TotalCare. More importantly, Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village has one of the largest private residential developers within South Africa, Collins Residential, behind this entire creation,” states David Cameron, Developer Representative of Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village.

Cameron further emphasises, “It’s critical that Collins Residential delivers on what they promise to their clients. This is the very foundation of their success to date. Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village is a prime example of the incomparable work Collins Residential creates, and shows how they affiliate with the right brands to create an incredible product, in a market where there is an exceptionally high demand.”

This retirement estate is setting a new precedent in health and wellness in retirement, as they are in the process of building the biggest Care Centre in KwaZulu-Natal to date. This facility alone is one of the standout features, especially as it is set to be just under 6000m² in size and provide 112 beds, as well as have up to 100 employees. “TotalCare is a trusted senior care service provide, with years of experience and a successful track record in South African estates. This will be TotalCare’s first introduction into KwaZulu-Natal, and we are thrilled to have played a part in bringing their expertise to this region,” shares Cameron.

The addition of this care centre is a cost to the developer, making it an even more rewarding addition to the estate, and bonus for residents. Access to convenient and comprehensive healthcare, as well as home-based care is a leading reason so many invest in retirement estates. This is why Collins Residential have made sure that this game-changing health offering is being built within the first phase of construction.

“This sizeable healthcare offering is just the tip of the ice-berg when considering the amount of facilities on offer to its residents. Due to Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village being situated in the esteemed family-focused Kindlewood Estate, residents benefit from having both their own exclusive facilities within the retirement village and those within the larger estate. This means that they have a choice of clubhouses to enjoy, vast green open space and wetland areas to walk or jog, cricket nets, tennis courts and swimming pools and much more,” explains Cameron.

As a result of the prime location the retirement village is set within, there is the benefit of multi-generational living; ultimately giving residents an opportunity to live close to their families, as well as having regular contact with other people.  “It is common for people to dislike change, especially when they have been settled in a home for many years and have become familiar with their surroundings. Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village offers the opportunity for families to keep that continuity, with the same friends, family and people, whilst being able to take optimal care of themselves,” says Cameron.

The design of Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village is to ensure all its residents have accessibility to the best, and this doesn’t exclude the quality of home design. Cameron shares, “Collins Residential have put in a great deal of research to ensure that retirees are provided with what they need, this includes single-level, stepless living, the clever use of living space and the ability to retro-fit the homes to their needs when the time arises.”

There is no limit to what you can expect at Mount Edgecombe Retirement Village. These reasons alone are why Mount Edgecombe Retierment Village has been referred to as KZN’s leading retirement village and why it stands proudly amongst other reputable retirement offerings throughout South Africa.
