Village status

In May 2016, Summerset purchased 8 hectares on Hill Street in Richmond as the proposed site for a new retirement village.  When complete, we hope the village will be home to around 400 residents.

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

A desirable location with an enviable climate

  • 8 hectares purchased
  • Bathed in sun
  • A short drive to Richmond town centre, outdoor attractions and wineries

Facilities & activities

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