Not-for-profit aged care and retirement living provider Bethanie has released plans to build apartment blocks at its Bethanie Esprit site in Eaton.

The new development will comprise 26 independent-living apartments in two buildings, with construction expected to start midyear and be done by late 2016.

Each contemporary-styled apartment will feature two bedrooms, a full-sized bathroom and kitchen, laundry, big living areas and one covered car bay.

Some apartment configurations will also have semi-ensuite access from both bedrooms to the bathroom.

A 24-hour monitored emergency call system and European appliances are also part of the high-quality fit-out.

Residents will also have access to the recently built clubhouse, which will form the heart of the South West development.

It includes a bowling green, golf putting course, courtyard, barbecue area and a heated swimming pool and there is also a workshop nearing completion.

The village, which is just 200m from Bethanie Fields, is also close to medical facilities, shopping facilities, beaches and public transport.

Bethanie chief executive Chris How said Bethanie Esprit offered residents the chance to enjoy quality living and a sought-after lifestyle.

“Bethanie Esprit offers South West residents, and those looking to move to the South West, the chance to enjoy a warm and social lifestyle associated with our Bethanie villages, ” he said.

“Residents will benefit from both coastal and country living, plus the bonus of exclusive residential access to the new state-of-the-art clubhouse on site.

“Following on from the success of the villas at Bethanie Esprit, we are delighted to be able to offer this apartment option for those looking to downsize and/or join our friendly Bethanie community in Eaton.”

There are currently 54 villas at Bethanie Esprit with a further 10 under construction.

Seventeen more villas will be built along with the two new apartment blocks (where there will be 14 apartments in one building and 12 in the other — in the next stage of works).

When complete, Bethanie Esprit will have 108 villas.
