Retirement is not an end but a beginning – an opportunity to experiment and explore, to engage in pursuits you value, and perhaps to reinvent your legacy.
For decades 65 was the typical retirement age. Starting in their early fifties, but certainly by age 70, people were expected to end their careers and embrace a life of leisure. But in the past 20 years, that paradigm has shifted dramatically. Half of today’s 60-year-olds will live to at least age 90.
No longer are we interested in the old adage of a “retirement home”, but there are certain practical aspects to consider in terms of living conditions, health concerns and the general freedom which comes from scaling down and unlocking a whole new phase of living.
With the overarching viewpoint of offering a lifestyle offering based on hospitality, contemporary homes and modern, world class facilities, Oasis Life is set to stand apart from the crowd. See it as ultra-comfortable living, with benefits. Depending on the development, free-standing homes or luxury apartments are designed and finished with care and attention to detail.
“Our lifestyle centres are managed by experts in the hospitality industry”, says John Chapman, Director at Rabie. “Whether it’s a delicious meal at the restaurant, drinks on the terrace or attending events like movie screenings, the standard of living and community aspects found in an Oasis Life development is aimed at allowing our residents to live their best lives.”
There are three Oasis Life developments in the pipeline in the greater Cape Town vicinity, with Oasis Life Clara Anna Fontein in Durbanville well underway. Three showhouses are currently under construction, on show in October.
Sophisticated and modern living with everything at your fingertips, is the theme of Oasis Life Century City’s luxury apartments, planned for launch before the end of the year. Oasis Life Century City will rise along the water’s edge of the previous Ratanga Junction development. Not only will the water body be rehabilitated, but its size will be increased, aiming to create a new recreational destination for water activities and additional habitat for the exceptional bird life that is already established in Century City.
Oasis Life Burgundy Estate, planned to launch in November, will enjoy being part of the well-established Burgundy Estate, situated in Milnerton between Plattekloof and Table View. A combination of free-standing homes and two and four storey apartment blocks (with lifts of course) will be complimented by a modern lifestyle centre.
“We want you to love your retirement” says Chapman. “It’s therefore important to us that you enjoy independence and autonomy with a fabulous lifestyle being a key focus.”
