Bream Bay Village Residents are settling into their new homes…

More and more people are moving in to Bream Bay Village!

Only 90 minutes from Auckland, with breathtaking views of Mt Manaia, Bream Bay Village is set to be the retirement destination of anyone looking to escape the rush of Auckland. If embracing a semi-rural lifestyle, close to idyllic white sand beaches, boat ramps and markets is your idea of a great retirement, then you need to take a trip to Bream Bay Village.

Construction of the third stage of the village is well underway, and already some stage three villas have been put under contract. Residents have obviously been enjoying the build progress and seeing their new home come alive.

The thing that becomes quickly apparent at Bream Bay Village is the thinking and planning that has gone into the layout and the wonderful community facilities. The Club House is the centrepiece, it’s under construction and it’s big, spacious and very inviting.

It’s obvious that the The Club House and its facilities will be the hub of the village. Its lounges, decks and admin centre looks like being a place where things will really happen, but also ideal for sitting in front of the fire reading on a cold winters day.

Along with The Club House build, residents of the Village will have use of an all-weather five lane bowling green, golf putting area and pétanque piste.

As you walk along the village avenues, it’s the large size of the site and the lovely spaces that you quickly become aware of. The villas themselves are already very spacious but they are not crammed together and it’s easy to walk or ride  around the village on the flat terrain and wide paths.

So, if you haven’t taken a trip to Bream Bay to check out the display home you should.

From the moment you step over the “Hello” mat at the front door, you’re struck by the light and spaciousness of the Villas.

More and more villas are being sold or put under contract and the pace of sales has picked up in the spring. Owner Paul Gray has responded to this increased growth by appointing a village manager and stepping up the construction rate. The existing residents are also establishing their own ‘residents committee’ to help run the community facilities and gardens.

The Villas have a bright and airy feel, thanks to open plan kitchen/dining/living. Sleek kitchen design, complete with stone benchtops and Fisher & Paykel stainless appliances give the kitchens a distinct European feel. Top quality materials have been used throughout and attention to detail makes you feel as if you’re walking into a substantial, quality home.

Villas come with a single garage with internal access, plus additional parking on your own private driveway. North facing outdoor living flows seamlessly from the villa and then on into your own private, landscaped garden.

The usual style villas come in a range of layouts. Each have two bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of those a spacious ensuite. If you’re looking for a three bedroom option, Paul says, “we’re building one now you can have a look at and we have some double garage options as well.”

Up to the minute construction, which features painted brick and Linea weatherboard, guarantees warm, dry homes. Windows are double glazed.

There’s already a great feeling of community at Bream Bay Village and we believe that’s only going to grow over time.

Is Bream Bay Village for you?

Have you met John and Annie? They’re a perfect example of the people who are moving into Bream Bay Village.

They have both worked hard all their lives, Annie was a teacher and John had a small home handyman business. They have three adult children, Mike, Leanne & Steph and four grand children.

Annie and John owned their own suburban home which had increased in value over the years and although, far from wealthy they are financially comfortable.

Annie and John knew that they needed to fund their future travel and lifestyle plans, but to live in the city villages would take all their available cash. They were sick of living in the city anyway with all its hustle and bustle.

John & Annie sold their suburban home which had increased in value over the years and purchased a Villa at Bream Bay Village.

They had considerable equity in their old home and that means that now they have a brand new home at Bream Bay Village and a substantial amount of cash in the bank.

The first thing they did after they purchased their brand new, two bedroom, 2 bathroom villa at Bream Bay Village was buy a campervan, because at Bream Bay Village, they have free campervan parking for life.

Annie and John are looking foward to the freedom of campervan travel around New Zealand, but what they’re most looking forward to is knowing that their home is safe and secure while they are away enjoying themselves.

John & Annie’s family are happy to visit them at the Village because they’re living only a short distance from their old home.

Their old life seems like a distant memory and Annie and John have their eyes fixed firmly on the busy work of retirement.
