Your retirement lifestyle choice
Here at Lansdowne Park, residents have the freedom to pursue their own interests, happy in the knowledge that their home and garden is maintained, to the extent they wish and that their welfare is uppermost in the mind of management and staff.
A strong sense of community exists in the village and living in wonderful, comfortable surroundings amongst like minded people makes Lansdowne Park the ideal place to enjoy life after work - worry free.
We have a selection of homes available, from spacious one bedroom serviced apartments through to exclusive three bedroom villas. Most have views of the spectacular Tararua Ranges.
A weekly fee allows unlimited access to the Community Building, heated swimming pool, spa, gym, library, and covers the on-going maintenance of home exteriors, lawns and gardens as well as 24 hour monitoring for fire and personal medical pendants.
We’d like show you around and let you see for yourself how good life can be!
Life at Lansdowne Park
Is your image of a retirement village one of a row of boxes all the same where everyone seems to be old and frail?
Well, nothing could be further from the truth at Lansdowne Park.
With each villa individually designed so that no two are the same, including stunning views of the Tararua Ranges for nearly every home and apartment featuring beautiful landscaped grounds and an amazing community centre, combine that with friendly residents and you’ll be amazed at the life you could live here.
As for the residents, they really are a friendly and social group; not only respecting each other’s privacy, they also enjoy the company of their neighbours’ at the many events within the village. Many of the residents only spend a short time in their individual homes as they are often travelling and some are still working or involved in community projects. Lansdowne Park in Masterton is only a short rail or road trip to Wellington and Palmerston North.
Lansdowne Park units are available under the “Occupation Right Agreement” (ORA). Lansdowne Park is a registered retirement village and is a full member of both the Retirement Villages Association (RVA) and the New Zealand Aged Care Association (NZACA). If you are 65 or over and you need further care, a Government allowance may be available to assist with fees in your Serviced Apartment. Work and Income New Zealand will explain the assistance available and eligibility criteria.
