Relax in the simple life.
Laid back, and with a tight-knit community, The Orchards retirement village is built on the site of an old citrus orchard, and rises gracefully along the North Shore’s green belt.
Spacious, easy-care apartments offer quality fixtures and fittings, with a 6 Homestar Built rating, making them twice as efficient and sustainable as standard New Zealand homes.
At The Orchards, there’s no end to the social gatherings and quality new amenities, including a state of the art care home. An onsite café is open to the public in the beautifully restored Cox family homestead.
Outside the village gates, enjoy the bush and bird song of the Kaipatiki Scenic Reserve, or take a stroll up the road to the great selection of shops and services at Glenfield Mall.
