Siteworks are underway on the new Margaret River Lifestyle Village located south of the Margaret River townsite, between Boodjidup and Rosa Brook roads.
The development will consist of 91 individual homes, the majority of which will be secured within the gated community in what Village Project Director Adan Nicholson said was a balance between safe retirement living and “a sense of freedom”.
With designs such as The Injidup, The Meelup and The Contos, homes promise a distinctly down-south style in keeping with the overall plan for the community.
The first display home is expected to be onsite by October 2017.
“This is not your average retirement community,” Mr Nicholson said, “We know that people who live in this part of the world want to remain active and seek out hobbies and interests they may have wanted to take on their whole lives.”

Winemaking, beer brewing and olive oil production will be available onsite with the help of local experts, as well as a workshop, vegetable gardens, chicken run and electric “fat bikes” for residents to use.
The centrepiece of the development is the Brewhouse-inspired Clubhouse, where residents will be able to hone their barista skills, enjoy darts competitions, music and theatre as well as the proposed barbecue pit and entertaining area.
The Clubhouse is due to start in August 2017.
Much of the existing natural environment will be retained thanks to a concerted effort from developers to position the homes with conservation in mind, with a number of the homes planned to overlook the existing creek system.
Margaret River local Fiona Edwards has signed on as a local representative for the development and said it will tick a lot of boxes for retirees.
