Woburn Masonic Village

Inspiring new development  

A modern boutique retirement community is taking shape at Woburn Masonic Village, in the heart of one of the most pleasant residential areas in Wellington. Stage 1 of Woburn Apartments has been completed, with residents moving into their new apartments from 20 February.

The residents of the 47 apartments in Stage 1 will enjoy grandstand views of the Hutt River, north to the Tararuas and south to Wellington. They will have access to two conservatories, a small library, a 'men’s shed', and a bar and lounge looking over the Hutt River.

When the 39 apartments in the second stage are completed in early 2017, the full range of village amenities will be available. A spacious entrance lobby will lead to reception, a hairdressing and beauty salon, café and dining area, snooker room and an indoor bowls and games area.

On the first floor, serviced by lift and stairs, there will be a library, an IT and office suite, arts and craft room, theatre for movies and live entertainment, exercise room, gym, spa and sauna, and a large lounge and bar opening out on to a deck. 

The one to three bedroom apartments, which range in size from 53 to 122 square metres, offer a superb environment for living and enjoying life. The location also means residents are within easy reach of the many recreational and social amenities that Lower Hutt offers.

Most of the apartments overlook the Hutt River and many have direct external access to a deck or small patio.The buildings are constructed in reinforced concrete and timber, with natural wood being used to add character to communal areas.

The impressive entrance lobby will feature a two storey height window bringing natural light into the foyer, with many of the internal 'streets' also featuring skylights for natural lighting and to provide a sense of spaciousness. 

Prices for occupation right agreements for the Stage 1 apartments range from $238,000 to $627,000. About two-thirds have been sold or are under offer, with a limited selection still available in each price range.

The main boundaries of the development are the Hutt River, Whites Line West and Wai-iti Crescent. Only landscaping remains to be completed before residents move into their Stage 1 apartments.

The Woburn Apartments are the most ambitious development yet for The Masonic Villages Trust and its operating companies. In all five villages – in Woburn, Palmerston North, Foxton, Levin and Masterton – it is actively building and upgrading its retirement offerings. Its largest previous development was the Glenwood Masonic Hospital, a state-of-the-art facility built in Masterton in 2010.

The existing Woburn Masonic rest home and hospital – with its 34 continuing care hospital rooms and 23 rest home rooms – will continue to operate during and after the build of the apartments. This will enable apartment residents to access care services whenever they are needed.
