Abingdon Retirement Village, Whanganui
Enliven’s Abingdon Village offers a wonderful lifestyle opportunity in the heart of St John’s Hill.
Abingdon Retirement Village offers old-world English country charm, right in the centre of Whanganui.
Abingdon’s attractive and freshly renovated one-bedroom villas are set on picturesque grounds, nestled amongst native trees and beautiful sunny gardens overlooking the Whanganui township.
The 14 villas at Abingdon Village surround the historic Abingdon House, designed by famous Kiwi architect James Walter Chapman-Taylor.
The house is now the village’s community centre and includes a shared dining room, shared lounge and guest accommodation. There are many social occasions and friendly card games enjoyed here!
Abingdon villas have been designed and constructed to provide comfortable, affordable and quality retirement living. If you value a vibrant, active and enjoyable retirement lifestyle, then Abingdon Village should be your first choice.
One of the best things about a move to Abingdon Village is that you can focus on enjoying your retirement while we take care of the rest. We’ll look after the property maintenance and gardening; we even offer meals and housekeeping services.
Of course, the amount we do is up to you. For example, if you’re a bit of a green thumb or enjoy pottering in the garden, you’re welcome to take care of the area around your villa. Many residents have created glorious gardens around their homes.
