Eden Village: Central Auckland Living In a Boutique Environment
Tucked away amongst the leafy Mt Eden streets, Oceania’s Eden Village has added brand-new apartments and community facilities to create a luxury boutique village in the heart of it all.
Situated in the highly-sought-after central suburb, residents can enjoy the convenience of popping out to their favourite shops and eateries and living close by to family and all the things they love. For many, village life ticks a lot of boxes in terms of being able to maintain the vibrant Auckland lifestyle they’re accustomed to, something that Oceania resident, Trisha, really appreciates. “It is always important to know that if things change you are still able to get around,” she says. “And having the shops and public transport nearby is a sense of relief if I could no longer drive.”
Eden Village’s one-, two- and two-plus-bedroom apartments have been architecturally designed and feature open-plan living areas, designer kitchens and quality fittings. They’re private and modern and — music to any homeowner’s ears — there’s no upkeep to worry about in a village. “Not having to worry about any maintenance issues or putting the bins out each week is one less thing to think about,” explains Trisha.
Outside the front door there’s plenty more on offer. A purpose-built community centre for independent living residents is destined to become a hub of activity. Boasting its own café, gym, cinema, library, dining and barbecue area with fantastic indoor-outdoor flow, residents can look forward to the convenience of having a workout at the gym, then grabbing a coffee with friends without stepping foot outside the village.
And that community aspect is a real drawcard for the Eden Village lifestyle. Specially designed as a boutique village, and significantly smaller than many retirement villages with only 89 apartments in total, its size makes it easy for residents to get to know their neighbours. Equally though, privacy has been considered from the get-go and independence is something that is highly valued in a village. “You can do exactly what you want to do, which allows you to pick and choose what you want to get involved in,” says Trisha.
Just a hop, skip and jump from Ponsonby, the Eden Village lifestyle will appeal to many central Auckland dwellers looking to get the most out of their retirement years.
