Bloom Living: the true meaning of freehold retirement in Henderson

Bloom Living’s new freehold apartment complex just up from Henderson town centre offers Henderson and Auckland wide residents an alternative option to traditional retirement villages.

The key difference with Bloom apartments is that they can be owned outright, which means owners retain any capital gains. “The freedom to own our own homes is something that’s very dear to New Zealanders. We don’t believe that should change in retirement.” says Bloom director James Klein. “Our model is designed to ensure that, when our owners choose to sell, they get to keep 100% of the proceeds.”

Easy, low-maintenance living for those aged 55+

The other notable difference is that Bloom’s low-maintenance, easy care apartments are specifically designed for retirees – so much so, that it’s a requirement that they must be occupied (although not owned) by people aged 55 plus.

“We’ve found from experience that our owners love living in a small community of like-minded people with similar lifestyles and values” says Klein. “It means they have companionship and friendship close at hand - or alternatively they have a ‘lock and leave’ lifestyle if they prefer.”

Safe, solid, secure & close to amenities

The site has been carefully selected for its proximity to local transport and public amenities – it’s also adjacent to CHT Carnarvon Hospital on Lincoln Road, a private hospital for the elderly, which will soon be refurbished.

As well as a communal garden area and residents’ lounge, each of the ground floor apartments have their own garden areas. Higher-level apartments have large, functional decks – and every apartment comes with a car park.

There is a strong emphasis on security within the development, including resident-controlled entry to the complex and to individual apartments.
