Monte Christo ensures the worry-free retirement its residents deserve
“There are three core securities one looks for in retirement: financial security, physical safety and the maintenance of one’s health. Monte Christo ticks all three boxes.”
So says Mark Teuchert, Director of Lazercor, Property Development Manager for Monte Christo Retirement Village, which occupies part of a pristine 54-hectare eco estate 15km from Mossel Bay.
Begun eight years ago, Monte Christo is today a fully operational retirement village offering a range of single-title homes, apartments and assisted-living units, not to mention a state-of-the-art healthcare facility and communal clubhouse with licensed bar, hair salon, library and computer room.
“We are not selling a promise; we are selling an established village,” says Teuchert, adding that Monte Christo is now wholly financially secure and even boasts a levy-stabilisation scheme which serves as a guarantee to residents against disproportionate price hikes.
Homeowners are also assured complete peace of mind when it comes to their physical safety. Not only is the Village itself fully gated, with biometric access control, but the estate in which it is situated has full perimeter electric fencing.
Similarly reassuring is the fact that residents’ healthcare needs are taken care of. A variety of assisted-living and frail-care options offer everything from select medical services to 24-hour nursing, all within easy access of the Village’s healthcare facilities, clubhouse and other important amenities.
In perfect keeping with the immaculate grounds, meanwhile, are Monte Christo’s contemporary-chic homes, all of which are fitted with solar-powered geysers and LED lights. But, while the village itself embodies homogenous architectural aesthetic, prospective buyers have the option of customising their own homes with a wide choice of top-end finishes. What does come as standard, however, is DSTV and telephone connection, email and Internet access and a personal emergency management system.
Situated at the gateway to the Garden Route, on a hill between farmlands and a nature reserve, Monte Christo is peacefulness personified. Yet it is far from isolated: the well-developed infrastructure of Mossel Bay is on the doorstep, while George, with its regional airport, is a stone’s throw away.
As such, Monte Christo Retirement Village truly offers the best of both worlds or, in the succinct words of one satisfied resident: “We can sit on our hill and observe the madness, or we can join in at our will!”
Prices in the Monte Christo De Caravel assisted-living sector start from R517 000 for a single bedsitter with open-plan living-bedroom area and a kitchenette. A 73 square-metre one-bedroom sectional-title home, complete with lounge-dining room, kitchen, bathroom, garden and carport, starts from R1.303 million.
