It has been a busy summer here at Woodlands!
Woodlands is rapidly maturing into the Village we always wanted it to be. This year the building program continues unabated with the construction of the clubhouse, hobby shed and the building of the community garden. We are also underway with the construction of the Serenity Garden area which will consist of a waterfall, flowing stream and pond features which will meander through our mature native tree area. We are all very excited to see the progress over the upcoming months as the design concept translates into reality. The Village is moving into its final stages with the last homes of stage two underway. We are currently building the duplex villas, each of which will consist of:
-2 bedrooms, an en-suite, separate main bathroom and guest toilet;
-a study, with north facing kitchen/dining & living areas;
-an extra-large single garage.
-Solar panels, the rainwater collection tank for secondary water use, are standard as are the other environmentally friendly features such as;
-LED lighting, north facing living areas and fully insulated garages.
Our backdrop of a stand of native trees (some being over 100yrs old), its associated birdlife gives us an unique setting for Woodlands. The tranquillity offered in such a setting coupled with the close proximity to the centre of Tauranga being our location here in Bethlehem, makes us doubly unique. Our residents awaken to the songs of our birdlife and the buzz from our own beehive. Residents gardens are overflowing with blooms this Summer which have definitely been a contributing factor in our heavy honey harvest this year. And it must be very convenient for our bees not to have to travel too far to collect their delectable nectar.
The fruit trees, especially the avocado tree has also been bountiful this year, much to the delight of Woodlands residents. Residents are also looking forward to the completion of the vegetable garden plots and hope to get their seasonal vegetables in soon.
Our club house design has been finalised and it will be going into Council for building consent. We are very excited to be at this stage and now looking ahead to the interior design and decorating aspects for this building. Even though the design has had many iterations we believed it was very important to get it exactly right for it to be the perfect place in which to entertain, socialise, exercise or just while away a few hours reading on the spacious balcony with views to Mount Maunganui and surrounding areas.
Woodlands really is the place for the discerning retiree to enjoy their golden years to the maximum, for those who wish to 'Retire in Style'. Call us or come and visit us soon to see our dream and your future home.
Stage 3, our final stage, is selling now.
