Advantages of the Balmoral Lifestyle

An Independent Lifestyle

Imagine coming home through a tree-lined, private road entrance. Your newly renovated home is in a 20 acre garden estate. Your magnificent club house with a pool and competition bowling green awaits. A team of gardeners take care of the lawns. If the stove breaks it gets fixed for free and there is always someone around to share a smile with.

Don’t imagine it…

This is the lifestyle you could enjoy.

Security & Comfort

Security & Comfort

Balmoral is surrounded by well-established quality housing whilst its single entry off Mockridge Street creates a secluded and private oasis.

CCTV cameras monitor the comings and goings from the village's main entrance and the Balmoral Club providing residents with peace of mind.

Safety lighting, illuminated paths, and wide brick paved driveways ensure  easy access for both residents and their guests.

All maintenance included

The gardens are lovingly kept by our team of dedicated groundsmen. For you, gardening is an option. The units are maintained by us, inside and out. If there is storm damage or your stove fails or a light bulb goes out or the road needs resurfacing - we fix it! You don’t have to worry.

A culture of care

A culture of care

Staff and residents work together to ensure a strong culture of care. Balmoral is a community within a community — a place where the traditional values of village life are of paramount importance.

It’s like a holiday resort, an active adult community that caters for couples and singles in the third age. Whether you are working, semi-retired, retired or stepping up for your encore career, Balmoral is designed for you to have the time of your life.

Our thoughtfully minded residents often donate their time and efforts for the benefit of the local communities, establishing a strong sense of belonging and care.

A rich family of friends

The first-class facilities are for the exclusive use of residents, their friends and relatives. Whether you are dining with friends, playing bowls, socialising or just relaxing and taking in village life around you — Balmoral has something for everyone.

With such a strong sense of community, a spacious garden setting and complimentary services to match its hardly surprising people at Balmoral seem like they don’t have a care in the world. The friendliness of the village is obvious from the moment of your first visit.

Dedicated and friendly staff

Our Village Manager and our staff are at your service to make life at Balmoral an easy going and enjoyable experience.

The operating budget for the village is presented each year for discussion and approval by the Residents’ Committee and then tabled at the Annual General Meeting of Residents.
