Goodwin is excited to announce the first stage release of Goodwin Village Downer.

Goodwin Village Downer, the organisation’s fifth retirement village in the ACT, builds upon Goodwin’s 67-year history and expertise in creating thriving communities for Canberra’s seniors.

Located in Canberra’s Inner North, the village promises a vibrant lifestyle, connecting residents to their neighbours and surrounding community. With shared facilities including a clubhouse, arts studio, library, activities room and a gym, Goodwin Village Downer is an exciting opportunity to make the most of retirement.

The 2- or 3-bedroom apartments are beautifully appointed, light-filled and spacious, rich in contemporary architecture and intelligent design details.

Erik Boddeus, Goodwin Executive Manager Retirement Living, Property and Development says Goodwin has spent decades listening to the wants and needs of seniors. We’ve taken the learnings from our existing villages and have designed a retirement village that we know is going to offer an outstanding lifestyle balancing luxury, privacy and connectivity.

“Goodwin Village Downer will be a unique place to live with a wonderful location within easy reach and close to the city. The village will offer a complete, carefree lifestyle, where residents can live life independently or access support when it becomes needed.”

“Units are designed to grow with people’s changing needs. They’re built to the adaptable housing standards, and offer a variety of on-site supports to meet residents’ changing needs, allowing people to age in place and remain active for longer.”

Designed by the award-winning, Canberra based team at CK Architecture, Goodwin Village Downer is also built to be environmentally conscious, with a strong emphasis on water and waste management, solar power and energy efficiency.

This focus on sustainability is not only great for the environment and surrounding landscapes, but will also enhance the year-round comfort and wellbeing of residents.

The village celebrates its peaceful garden suburb location, surrounded by flat, level streets and siding the well-kept Downer ovals – making staying active and healthy a breeze. The canopy trees offer shade in the summertime and a cacophony of colour when the weather starts to cool, all with Mount Majura and Mount Ainslie visible in the distance.

With Goodwin, you can be confident that you’ve selected an industry leader known for providing residents with the best in retirement living. The organisation is independent (owned by members who are predominantly residents), and is not affiliated with any other business, organisation, property developer, or religious or political body – purely existing to provide seniors with the best care and accommodation possible.

Stage 1 is expected to be completed in 2023 and apartments are now available for sale.
