New Cambridge village

Summerset purchased 8 hectares in north Cambridge as the proposed site for a new retirement village, and once completed it will include approximately 300 homes.  

The proposed village is currently in the planning and development stage. We are following due process before commencing with development of this proposed retirement village and intend to apply for registration of this village under the Retirement Villages Act 2013.

A great location to retire

  • 8 hectares purchased
  • 2km from Cambridge town centre, with major retailers and supermarkets
  • 2min drive to Cambridge raceway and a 4min drive to Te Koutu Lake
  • 18km to Hamilton airport, 28km from Hamilton city, and 25km to Te Awamutu 
  • Close to State Highway 1 with quick access to Hamilton and beyond

Facilities & activities

Once the village is complete, residents will have access to a range of community facilities. Our villages are built for their environment and generally include the facilities below. Our on-site Activities Coordinator will also ensure there's always a calendar of events that cater to a wide range of resident interests and activities.
