the beginning of a successful
With an uncompromising vision to improve people’s lifestyle by providing better living solutions during their retirement, Wivenhoe Village was created through a successful joint venture between the long-term owner of the land, the Sisters of the Good Samaritan, and award-winning retirement village developer, Mbark.
The Sisters have been custodians of the land at Wivenhoe for over a hundred years and retain a strong attachment to it. That custody is now shared with those who choose to call Wivenhoe home and their families.
