Downsizing in the pristine and tranquil South West is a tempting possibility at Bethanie’s Espirit Cottages at Eaton.
With 34 new cottages currently under construction, the established village will soon offer even more room for those seeking a peaceful retirement living option and a bit of a tree change.
“Bethanie’s Esprit Cottages are best suited to all those who are retired, or semi-retired, over the age of 55,” Espirit Cottages Village Manager Colleen Fitzgerald said.
“These cottages are designed for those who value their independence and want to be part of a vibrant, friendly and supportive community as they enter their senior years.
“You don’t just enter a great new home here, you enter into a great lifestyle, as this community provides so many opportunities for socialisation and recreation on a long-term basis.”
The cottages come standard with modern kitchens featuring Essastone benchtops and ample storage space, as well as high ceilings in all living areas with plenty of natural light, especially with the inclusion of ceiling skylights and a large private courtyard and alfresco area.
They also feature a built-in Telstra Velocity system providing phone, internet and free-to-air TV services from one cable, split-system air-conditioning units in the main bedroom and living areas and adjustable downlights and many two-way switches.
“The cottages are designed to have all the necessities without the fuss,” Ms Fitzgerald said. “They have great low-maintenance living spaces.
“Some of these low-maintenance features include hybrid timber flooring to all living areas and level surfaces, walk-in showers, spacious ensuites and a second powder room.
“The cottages come with a focus on resident safety, as they offer a 24-hour emergency system and a security patrol every evening.”
But it is not just the cottages that will leave you impressed, according to Ms Fitzgerald, the surrounding community is just as good.
“One of our most attractive features includes the lock-and-leave benefits of the village, including the onsite caravan parking,” she said.
“This is great for those retirees who want to up and leave for an adventure whenever they please.
“Retirement living at Bethanie Esprit allows you to downsize whilst living safely, independently and in the company of like-minded people.”
The cottages are located near plenty of amenities, only a short car ride to the Bunbury city centre and surrounded by beautiful rivers, wildlife and wineries.
