About the Retirement Village

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.
