THE Linton Court Retirement Village at Foster currently has two two-bedroom retirement units available.
The retirement village is run by a Foster community non-profit association to provide on an affordable basis independent living accommodation suited for older people.
It is administered on a totally honorary basis by a board of local community people – so that the interests of the residents are fully aligned with those of the board.
The retirement village is situated on around 5 acres adjacent to permanent bush land owned by DWELP – and units are well spaced in this great setting.
It is also only 300 metres from the town centre, so residents are easily able to access all community shops and facilities.
Foster is well-served by a major medical practice, hospital and aged care facility, as well as most other ancillary medical services.
The retirement village has 23 independent living units and associated carports, with many features built in to make things easier for older people.
All maintenance issues are dealt with by the village, so residents are free to enjoy their retirement and come and go as they please.
Unit 21 (see attached floor plan) is a typical unit. It was extended and fully upgraded in 2017 and is now available.
Under normal financial arrangements village residents pay an ingoing contribution of around $80,000 for a two-bedroom unit and this fee is subject to refund where the resident vacates the unit within the first five years.
Residents also pay a very concessional fortnightly rental/maintenance charge and their phone and electricity or gas.
Anyone interested is invited to make contact with Hon. Treas. Lloyd McKenzie on 0439 559 579.
Lloyd is happy to show people around and provide an inspection of the units and the total site and amenities.
