Pioneer Concept of Lifestyle Retirement Living
A first-of-its-kind integrated retirement village in Peninsular Malaysia, GreenAcres is crafted by TI Homes in a close collaboration with Australian consultants and design architects in order to bring an international level of wellness facilities similar to Watermark in Sydney and Rylands in Melbourne to Bandar Meru Raya, Ipoh.
If Ipoh has long been recognised as an ideal destination for retirement, then GreenAcres would be the crème de la crème where independent like-minded residents can age gracefully with full dignity in a vibrant community interwoven with freedom of choice and peace of mind.
VIBRANT COMMUNITY – TRUE INDEPENDENCE
“GreenAcres is purpose-built for seniors. The units have elder-friendly features like wider doorways for wheelchair access, more ergonomic handles and an emergency response system. At the clubhouse, services and facilities are provided such as a shuttle bus, gym, games room, reading areas, mini-cinema, exercise sessions, and karaoke. These are advantages and benefits that you cannot find in any other residential development,” John Chong, its Executive Director shared.
Run by a professional management team trained in first aid with detailed knowledge in senior living, the premier retirement village also maintains a 24/7 emergency call system.
Living a quality resort-like lifestyle, elderly could engage in community fellowship via stimulating activities or travel freely without worries as their landscaped common areas in the gated and guarded community are taken care of.
THE DAWNING OF PHASE 1
Described as a “paradigm shift” and “timely” by Dato’ Dr Mah Hang Soon, Executive Councillor for Health, Public Transport, Non-Islamic Affairs, National Integration and New Villages during the show units unveiling back in October last year, its first phase is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2017.
Phase 1 consists of the clubhouse and 26 units of landed villas, out of which 22 are two-bedroom units (of 889 sq ft, 942 sq ft and 1105 sq ft) while the remaining are one-bedroom units (of 734 sq ft). To date, 40% are sold to both local and international buyers. Do take note GreenAcres run on a simplified lifetime lease system with monthly general service charge. Prices range from RM300,000 to RM452,000 a unit while the monthly fee starts from RM371 (additional rebates when you introduce a friend to GreenAcres!). Free to move out anytime, it offers 100% refund of the lease during exit.
Tailored for mobile and independent retirees of 55 years and above, GreenAcres also beckons to those who come under the Malaysia My Second Home programme.
For the upcoming phases, there would be an on-site aged care facility for the less mobile, two blocks of low-rise apartments of four storeys each and more landed units. Upon completion, the 13-acre site could accommodate up to 400 seniors.
Established in 1993, TI Homes is an Ipoh-based property company synonymous with quality, integrity and responsible development. GreenAcres, their pilot venture into the field of retirement living, will be the next standing testament to their philosophy.
