Harbord Diggers retirement village: the new benchmark in ‘community’ – and price

Published on

Anyone interested in the retirement village sector (including Fairfax and Four Corners) should check out this video for Watermark Freshwater, the centrepiece of the new Harbord Diggers club at Freshwater, adjacent to Manly and the North Heads of Sydney Harbour.

Click on the July News section to get the video. Watch it to the end to see the ‘luxury residences’ identified – which is the retirement village.

It is fairly described as the country’s first intergenerational hub, combining childcare, allied health, stupendous gymnasium and aquatics centre, family entertainment plus club facilities adjacent to surfing beaches and village shops – all on the cliffs looking out to sea.

Watermark Freshwater retirement village is the only residential space, with 96 apartments. They are being marketed at $1.5M to $3.8M. 74 have been sold off-the-plan.

The community Not For Profit Harbord Diggers had a blank sheet of paper for the redevelopment of the unique site and chose this intergenerational model. Our prediction is it will become the world benchmark for a seniors’ accommodation development that integrates all ages of a family into a sense of community.

It will be managed by the Watermark group, led by partners Enzo Marchione, Tony Olding and Chris Wall.
