“The Lodge” – Private Residents Facility

The Lodge is our beautifully appointed Private Resident’s Facility that opened officially in December 2015. The centrepiece of Wivenhoe Village, The Lodge is centrally located and architecturally designed with warm interiors, intended to feel like an extension of your own lounge room. Below are just a few of the features you’ll no doubt enjoy at The Lodge.

Lodge Facilities
Wivenhoe Village Pool

Pool

The indoor heated 18m pool will be perfect for exercise such as aqua aerobics, a few laps or pool walking. Alternatively, why not take a leisurely dip? And better yet, you don’t have to worry about cleaning out the leaves or the PH balance, we take care of all of that for you.

Gym

A fully equipped gymnasium is available and includes a generous area dedicated for class exercise such as pilates, tai chi and yoga. Equipment is selected with your requirements in mind and includes the latest cardio equipment and free weights. Work out at your leisure, with a group or arrange a session with your personal trainer.

Bar Lounge and Deck

Bar, Lounge and Deck

The Lodge features a large bar and lounge area, perfectly designed to be cosy, warm and inviting but also opens up to accommodate larger groups and functions. The lounge and dining areas flow out onto an expansive covered sandstone deck that takes full advantage of the peaceful bushland setting. Multiple fireplaces feature throughout. Grab yourself a cuppa and read the paper that’s delivered daily.

Billiards and Library

The library features its own fireplace with beautifully fitted bookshelves for you to fill with some of your favourite books to share. Snug lounges and arm chairs present the perfect opportunity for curling up with a great read and a cup of tea or glass of vino. The full sized American billiard table affords an ideal opportunity to challenge your new neighbour to a round of pool or brush up on your skills before taking part in a Wivenhoe Village pool tournament.

50 Seat Cinema

50 seat cinema

Let’s face it, all the buzz is about the cinema. And with not many people, perhaps with the exception of maybe George Clooney holding bragging rights to their own gold class cinema, you can understand why. So picture yourself with your own 50 seat cinema available for your use whenever tickles your fancy. You can watch a classic flick on movie night, watch a state of Origin match or show your neighbours and friends a slideshow of your latest holiday snaps. The choice is yours.

Community

Wivenhoe Village is your neighbourhood the way it used to be. We offer our residents a home, world class facilities, companionship, security, peace of mind, care and above all a community.
Wivenhoe Village offers the ability to join in a community of like-minded Residents and undertake as much activity or have as much privacy as you like – you decide.

As part of the Premier Residential community of Kirkham Rise, you have neighbours close by that could even be family members. You will benefit from being a part of this boutique residential neighbourhood that is surrounded by bushland and provides tranquillity but with a connectedness – we think of it as “privacy without isolation”.

Wivenhoe Village benefits from excellent proximity to both Narellan and Camden’s services, facilities and social and community groups. Camden has a very strong and deep history of community engagement and involvement, whether it is Probus, Inner Wheel, Rotary or social woodwork and sewing groups. As a Resident of Wivenhoe Village you’ll maintain existing ties, create new bonds and friendships and have great input into how your community at Wivenhoe Village develops and continues to be shaped.

Privacy

Many of our Residents will be re-locating from larger properties where privacy, space and peace and quiet are the reasons why you loved your home. We don’t want you to lose this and think you’ll be impressed with how spacious and private the homes at Wivenhoe Village are. All the homes are freestanding and enjoy bushland and parkland views. Neighbours are close by when you want them there but aren’t on top of you. At Wivenhoe Village you can be as social and involved as you like or enjoy your privacy as you see fit.

 

Security

We understand feeling safe and secure in your home is a big part of choosing to call Wivenhoe Village home. Your home will have fly screens on the windows and metal screens to your front door. The homes have been designed around the concept of passive surveillance, meaning windows face the street, there are no blind lanes and the streets are nice and wide so you can keep an eye on what’s happening in your community. There is a state of the art 24hr emergency call system in every home and in other key locations around Wivenhoe Village. You may also have access, should you choose, to your own personal alarm system within your home.

We anticipate that many of our Residents will be avid travellers. We hope you’ll enjoy your travels knowing that we are looking after your home’s security, collecting your mail and mowing the lawn.
