Stockland's Somerton Park Community Wins National Retirement Living Award
Stockland’s Somerton Park Seniors Living Community has been recognised by the Retirement Living Council at the inaugural National Retirement Living Awards winning the category for best village refurbishment.

The award which recognises excellence in the refurbishment of retirement village units and facilities while ensuring minimal disruption to residents, was awarded to the village’s Souter & Zelling buildings which provide affordable 1 bedroom options for seniors. 

The units have been upgraded from their original 1970’s décor to stylish and modern apartments to suit the changing needs of ageing South Australians, and beat six other finalists from across the country. The refurbished units remain at an affordable price point for retirees with prices starting from only $199,000 

Michael Wappett, General Manager of Sales, Stockland Retirement Living said: “We are exceptionally proud to see the Somerton Park refurbishment recognised by the Retirement Living Council at this year’s inaugural awards.

“These units provide seniors in Adelaide with a great opportunity to move into the sought after Somerton Park address and join one of our thriving retirement communities.” 

“As one of Australia’s top operators in Retirement Living, with over 12,000 residents living in 65 Stockland villages across Australia, we’re consistently striving to offer our residents the highest possible standard in retirement living and look forward to improving and growing our South Australian villages to offer our residents a better way to live.”

Somerton Park Seniors’ Living Community is currently home to over 210 residents and provides a wide range of accommodation options including serviced apartments, independent living apartments and villas. 

The village offers an onsite restaurant, range of village activities and a village bus service. Located 12km south-west of the Adelaide CBD, Somerton Park is only 3km from Glenelg, one of Adelaide’s most popular tourist destinations, the village is also close to retail shops, transport and medical facilities. 

Stockland continues to respond to strong demand from the growing number of retirees in South Australia who want to buy a low maintenance, well appointed, self-contained home within a dedicated retirement community.
