Radius Care’s second village development, Elloughton Village, offers 54 architecturally designed retirement villas on 5.35 acres of private gardens and parkland bordering rural Timaru. The chalet style villas, with views out to the Southern Alps, are available with 1 or two bedrooms, starting from $390,000.

The $24 million development project was designed by Foley Group, was delivered in three stages by Mike Greer Homes. The villas available in stage two sold very quickly, and stage three properties are selling fast. We have only 5 new villas left.

The village is built adjacent to the well-established Radius Elloughton Gardens care facility, which provides rest home and hospital level care, ensuring medical support is available nearby for village residents. A shortage of rest home beds in Timaru will be partially alleviated, and many new health care jobs created, as the expansion of Elloughton Gardens is completed.

The existing Elloughton Gardens was also upgraded to include a new 30-bed hospital wing, which increased the available spaces for residents to a total of 86 – and opened up job opportunities for a further 30 staff.

The stately Elloughton Grange building, established in 1893, provides a striking landmark in the centre of the development, which also boasts a well-equipped community centre with games room, lounge, dining area and kitchen. It regularly hosts events for residents such as movie and games nights, classes, and private family functions.

Radius Care has received wonderful feedback from buyers who are impressed with the quality of the build and the layout of the villas. They appreciate the little touches, such as plenty of inbuilt storage and an additional room for visiting families, plus the community centre which helps build the friendly village culture.

“Now Elloughton Gardens is completed, we’re looking forward to building this small-community style of retirement village in other regions,” says Brien Cree, Managing Director, Radius Care.
