The retirement community, known for its balance of historical charm and modern convenience, is expanding its offering with residences that echo the village's ethos of preserving heritage while embracing the future.
Closebourne Village boasts a unique architectural fusion that breathes new life into its heritage buildings while carefully interweaving contemporary elements.
At the heart of the village sits the restored Morpeth House community centre, including not only a lobby and grand tearoom, but also an indoor pool, gym, billiard and pub room.
The restoration of heritage buildings shows the village’s commitment to preserving its historic charm – while also not compromising on the conveniences of modern living.
For the new architecturally designed villas, buyers can choose between 2 bedroom villas with a media room or a 3 bedroom layout. All homes come with a double garage and feature spacious open plan living.
Close to the scenic Hunter Valley, Closebourne's location is incredibly unique. The village is not only right on the banks of the Hunter River, but also neighbours a golf course and is less than 1 kilometre away from the heritage town of Morpeth. It is fair to say Closebourne is a ‘village within a village’ – with everything you need at your doorstep, and even more things to do right outside it.
The town of Maitland is only 10 kilometres away, acting as the gateway to the beautiful valley and its esteemed vineyards and wine cellars beyond.
With so much to do and the many amenities to enjoy, it’s not surprising the retirement village also has a vibrant community life, once again underlining the notion of a village within a village.
The restored Morpeth House community centre acts as the starting point and offers space for activities such as arts and crafts, chess and cards, and a function room for village celebrations. This community focus continues in the outdoor spaces, including a communal BBQ area and a resident-maintained vegetable garden.
Closebourne Village offers seniors the opportunity to experience the best of both worlds - the rich, historical context of an established village, harmoniously intertwined with all the comforts of modern living.
