An affordable retirement village alternative in the City of Playford, Adelaide.

According to the 2014 Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) survey, the “dream downsizing home” is:

  • Smaller in size (such as having a more manageable yard) than the current home
  • Easy to access and to move around in, and preferably with only one level
  • A lifestyle improvement, particularly in terms of good entertaining areas
  • Close to shops, health services and public transport
  • Located in an area which is desired by the downsizers, often close to where they currently live, or offering lifestyle benefits
  • Something which delivers financial savings, as a result of discharging a mortgage or collecting capital gain
  • Alongside likeable neighbours

Downsizing into a lifestyle village like Northern Community Residential Village (NCRV), in Adelaide’s Northern Suburbs, offers all of the above and more!

Come and take a look at our Village and discover what downsizing into our village can do for you!
