​Apartment Living Right Choice For Couple

Posted on January 28, 2019.


The desire to determine their own lives has been the hallmark of a generation of Australians who have worked hard, known good and bad times and now, in retirement, seek to live life on their own terms.

This philosophy, combined with the benefits of a village life and ‘ageing in place’, are cornerstones of Juniper’s lifestyle village in Menora, where a friendly new community is taking shape.

The latest phase at Juniper Elimatta Retirement Living is the contemporary Orana Apartments featuring self-contained units in a range of layouts, in open-plan, each overlooking a large bowling green and elegant clubhouse.

An apartment lifestyle holds great appeal for retired couple Peter and Carol Bradbrook and it has enabled them to spend time together, with their family and with new friends they’ve made at the village.

“We didn’t look anywhere else, we just loved this apartment,” Carol said. “It’s just so lovely here, it’s done nicely and the people are all so friendly.”

With three adult children and six grandchildren a big part of their lives, downsizing to an easy-living lifestyle was the icing on the cake.

The couple’s grandchildren look forward to visiting and love the apartment as well as the village’s clubhouse that features a big, covered underground pool which is perfect for summer.

Both Carol and Peter said they enjoy the companionship that village life offers and, like many of their peers, also greatly prefer to determine their own lives.

“We have had a number of events here already,” Peter said. “You can be part of things if you want to and if you are out and about, you can lock it up and feel safe.”

This latest Juniper retirement living project successfully promotes apartments for life and ‘ageing in place’ – a concept where housing and community design enable residents to live and enjoy their home for as long as possible.

And thinking of the future, both Carol and Peter wanted to feel secure in knowing there are supports in place should their circumstances change.

“The main thing was that if anything happens, we needed to be in this sort of environment where there is company,” Carol said.

Juniper Orana, meaning ‘welcome’, features 40 self-contained apartments in a range of one, two and three bedroom or two-bed plus study layouts, each with a bathroom and air-conditioned open-plan living and dining area. Residents also benefit from:

  • Contemporary interiors, chic finishes and quality kitchen appliances
  • Balconies with views on upper levels
  • 24-hour duress alarms plus secure parking.

Located on Mount Lawley’s doorstep, the new apartments complement the existing 17 two-by-two plus study villas which surround a contemporary clubhouse where all residents can enjoy its bowling green, lounge and outdoor entertaining areas, a reading room, café, covered pool and craft room.

Residents also enjoy some of Perth’s best shopping, restaurants, entertainment and sports complexes, all accessible from nearby transport.
