RETIREMENT VILLAGE: STARCKWOOD

Almost fifty years ago the late George and Annie Starck resolved to make an extraordinarily generous gift – that of bequeathing their magnificent home for the benefit of the elderly. The result was the establishment of a fine retirement complex in the grounds of the Starck homestead that has provided many residents with a caring home.

A brand new retirement village known as Starckwood consisting of six blocks built on open portions of the spacious wooded grounds. Starckwood Retirement Village consists of 60 high-quality one and two bedroomed units as well as a healthcare facility which can accommodate 52 residents and which also has 2 acute wards of 4 beds each to assist residents in short-term recovery. Lock-up garages are available to be purchased. Meals can be ordered at a fee.

Age qulitfication for residence is 60, however 10% of residents may be between the ages of 50-60.
