Somerset Lifestyle & Retirement Village cares for retirees
For those entering their golden years, The Somerset represents a unique investment in lifestyle, well-being and peace of mind.
Situated on prime Somerset West property and enjoying vistas across False Bay, The Somerset Lifestyle & Retirement Village offers over-50s a wide range of brand new homes, each tailored to their unique needs, tastes and budgets. “For many retirees, the unfortunate truth is that the demand for accommodation in quality villages or estates totally outstrips supply,” says Okkie Potgieter, Chairman of property development company, Westacre Property Group. “The Somerset gives them the opportunity to sidestep the queue and gain the security needed to embrace the later chapters of their lives.”
A family-run company with over 26 years in the business, Westacre has completed no fewer than 20 gated villages in Somerset West and boasts numerous industry awards. Exacting professionalism, then, is synonymous with the company’s offering and it is this that truly places The Somerset in a league apart. Set in landscaped gardens, each home is built to the highest specifications, with solar-heated water, energy-efficient temperature control and LED lighting making this the first retirement village in South Africa to be fully compliant with the latest National Standard Building Regulations.
Designed to blend seamlessly with the classic-contemporary aesthetic of luxury Winelands homes, each residence features generously apportioned rooms and state-of-the art kitchens and bathrooms. Air-conditioning comes as standard, as do optical fiber cables to every home, making Internet and satellite TV accessible to all residents. Under-floor heating and wheelchair-friendly customisations are other available options.
Offering a choice of freehold homes, sectional-title cottages, one- and two-bedroom apartments and Life Right assisted-living units, The Somerset also comes with a wide variety of amenities, including a clubhouse with restaurant, gym and heated pool, and even a chapel. An on-site health-care centre caters to medical needs, while Vergelegen Medi Clinic is less than a kilometre away.
Also reassuring is The Somerset’s sophisticated security system, which includes a 24-hour manned entrance, CCTV, and electrified fencing.
“Today’s seniors view retirement as a whole new opportunity to engage with family, community, and the world with vigour and purpose,” says Potgieter, “The Somerset caters specifically to this market.”
