New retirement homes in Secunda from R550k

07 Jun 2017

The bustling town of Secunda in Mpumalanga will soon have its first ever retirement village.

The Terra Nova Retirement Village in Secunda, Mpumalanga, will offer residents access to a gymnasium, library and outdoor boma and braai area. Full and sectional title units are on the market from R550 000, and full title from R1.8 million - click here to view.

This is according to Billy Fick, Seeff’s licensee for Secunda, who says this is a most welcome addition to the area’s property market.

“We have never had a retirement village before, and the closest to the area used to be in Bethal, some 40km away from Secunda, so this is a very exciting development. The town is in real need of this since many people have spent their entire lives here and do not want to move away to retire,” says Fick.

“An affordable option for retirees around here is Davies Court, a block of flats, which are old and semi-neglected. Residents do a lot of fundraisers themselves to pay for the upkeep of the building. It was originally built by the Govan Mbeki Municipality, and the rent is very affordable, which results in a long waiting list.”

Fick says the new retirement development, Terra Nova Retirement Village, is currently being built, and the first occupations are expected towards the end of 2017.

According to Fick, the village will include a Curro-Health sub-acute hospital, medical assistance, dining hall with daily meals, functions hall, library, gymnasium and more.

“There are various options, with one, two and three bedrooms to choose from, and these options include full as well as sectional title units. Prices range from R550 000 (sectional title) to R1.8 million (full title),” says Fick.

Secunda is well under two hour’s drive from Johannesburg, he says, and it offers a very laidback lifestyle.

“It is renowned as ‘Cosmos Country’, and the surroundings explode with colour when pretty pink and white cosmos flowers bloom in the summer,” says Flick.

“The town also has a beautiful waterfront, called Lake Umuzi, that offers and excellent outing with many restaurants, ten-pin bowling, water games, a basement theatre and more. Lake Umuzi has the Umuzi Lodge for visitors, and there is also a casino and country club and excellent facilities on hand for residents and visitors.”
