Selandra Rise Retirement Village is proving to be a great place to live, with Stockland unveiling the new state-of-the-art clubhouse this Saturday 21st February to residents and guests.

Filled with modern facilities and amenities the new 1,400 square metre clubhouse at Selandra Rise will soon become the beating heart of the village; providing residents with a place they can meet or enjoy a range of activities.

The Selandra Rise Clubhouse is available for use by residents and their guests.

Facilities include:

  • Beautifully landscaped surroundings
  • Hair salon
  • Library
  • Billiards room
  • Craft room
  • Theatre room
  • Residents’ work shed
  • Computer zone with Wi-Fi and Foxtel
  • Bar and self-service café
  • Gym, spa and heated indoor pool

Located within the master-planned residential community of Selandra Rise,residents enjoy everything they need on a daily basis on their doorstep, within easy walking distance. From barbeque areas, parks and playgrounds for visiting grandchildren to medical centres and shops. Selandra Rise is a highly inclusive community, which emphasises physical activity, social inclusion, safety and affordability – and is a happy place to call home.

Selandra Rise is also the first village in Australia to be awarded a 4 star Green Star certification from the Green Building Council of Australia. This certification encompasses not only the homes and apartments but also the new Clubhouse and open spaces around the village. This innovative approach to design fundamentally improves the way residents run their homes, both in terms of the levels of comfort and amenity within the homes and around the thermal, water and electrical efficiency of each home with proven cost savings.

Stockland’s Daniel Milentijevic, continues: “As an integral part of our design, we’ve considered energy, water, waste materials, transport options and the planting of trees that provide summer shade and allow winter sun. It all combines to create a better way to live, while reducing the cost of living with lower energy and water bills.”

“Our homes, apartments and new clubhouse at Selandra Rise require less heating and cooling due to the best possible ceiling and wall insulation, high-performance thermal glazing and good home orientation.”

The response to the overall Selandra Rise Retirement Village development had been very positive since opening in January 2013 with 139 residents already calling Selandra Rise home.

“Stage four of the development is nearing completion with stage five underway now and stage six to commence within the next two months. We are excited to continue to invest and deliver more for the Selandra Rise Retirement Village community offering future residents a modern, low maintenance home to suit their budget and lifestyle and a community that they can call home”, explained Mr Milentijevic.

To celebrate the Clubhouse opening, this Saturday from 10am-2pm residents, their guests and the public will have the chance to have a village tour and view the new facilities first hand. A barbeque, face painting and balloon artist for the grandkids will all be on offer, as well as an opportunity to meet radio host Peter Van, from Magic 1278 as he broadcasts live from the Clubhouse.

Julie Baxter, Selandra Rise Village Manager said, “Selandra Rise Retirement Village is a vibrant retirement living community which gives you the freedom to live the way you want to. You’ll enjoy the beautifully landscaped surroundings, modern affordable homes, friends just a door knock away and plenty of activities to get

involved in. We welcome anyone and everyone to come to the clubhouse opening this Saturday. It is a great opportunity to view our luxury apartments and Stage 3 home designs, meet the residents and see what village living is all about.”

Stockland Regional Manager, Retirement Living Development Victoria, Daniel
Milentijevic, said: “The Clubhouse at Selandra Rise is an extremely versatile space,
perfect for bringing people together on any occasion. There’s the Town Hall with
ample room for letting loose on the dance floor, hosting community events and
indoor bowls, the pool, spa and hair salon for some rest, relaxation and personal
pampering or the bar and billiard room where residents can catch up with friends
and enjoy a game of pool over a beer.”
