Kandahar Village, Masterton – a destination not just a location.
Masterton, the largest town in Wairarapa region, offers a myriad of attractions from local eateries and farmers’ markets to boutique shopping – there is always something to do. The centre of town is the beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park, which has one of the best children’s playgrounds in New Zealand, perfect for when the grandkids come and stay!
If you enjoy a cold glass of chardonnay or perhaps a full bodied merlot, you are just a short drive to Wairarapa’s wine country. Nearby Martinborough and Gladstone boast dozens of predominantly family-owned vineyards.
For a change of pace, the town of Greytown is home many award-winning cafes and restaurants, boutique owner-operated shops, a number of museums and art galleries and even the 2020 New Zealand Chocolate Awards gold winners Schoc Chocolates.
To top it off the development will boast an impressive village community centre – perfect for performances, social gatherings and recreation activities.
Independence, freedom and lifestyle.
Retirement is not about slowing down; it’s about having the time to do the things you enjoy most. At Kandahar Village we will help make this a reality.
Residents at Enliven villages often tell us they love having the freedom to travel; all the while knowing their home is secure. Others tell us they love having time to pursue favourite pastimes, while we take care of the hard work like property maintenance. However for many retirees it’s the companionship of others at a similar stage of life.
