With new bowling greens under construction, Signature Gardens at Rutherford is literally on a roll.

Stage 9 has sold out entirely and expressions of interest in stages 10 and 11 are high.

“The take-up has been overwhelming,” Signature Gardens General Manager Jo-Anne Dryden said.

“People are thinking about that next step in life. We are finding that with such a high level of interest we can’t build our units quick enough.”

Stage 10 will comprise 14 villas being a mixture of two and three-bedroom designs. 

Construction will commence later this year with prices expected to range from $375,000 to $455,000. 

The first eight stages of the resort have sold out with over 120 residents now calling Signature Gardens home. 

The resort features a magnificent clubhouse building which includes: billiards room, consultation/medical/hairdressing room for visiting practitioners; kitchen/ bar/ dining areas; library/computer/ craft areas; barbecue area; lounge/activities areas; TV/entertainment area; and dance floor.

In addition to the clubhouse, the village currently includes a heated swimming pool, gym and a caravan parking area. Future facilities will include a residents' workshop, bowling green and putting green.

“Construction of a three rink synthetic bowling green is underway,” Jo-Anne said. “We’re hoping they’re ready to roll by Christmas.”

Word of mouth among the over-55 demographic has been a strong seller.

“We’re seeing family members moving in – brothers and sisters, best friends” Jo-Anne said. “They love what we do and the atmosphere we have created within the community.”

The team at Signature Gardens have a real empathy and passion about what they build

 ”We have a genuine compassion for our buyers, they’re not just another number, they are part of part of the community we’re building,”  Jo-Anne said.

 Signature Gardens Retirement Resorts was awarded the Hunter Aged Care and Disability Retirement Village of the Year 2016. 

Signature Gardens is located in Rutherford, close to Maitland Hospital, Maitland City Bowling Club and Rutherford Shopping Centre.
