New housing options for South West seniors

3 May 2017

Construction is nearly complete at new Access Housing developments in Boyanup and Dardanup that will give local seniors the option to ‘right size’ and remain in their home town as they grow older.

Boyanup units

Through our Royalties for Regions funded South West Ageing in Place Housing Pilot projects, Access Housing is building 14 new units for over 55s at Mitchell Way, Dardanup and a further nine new units at Thomas Street, Boyanup. Three existing over 55s units at the Boyanup site will also benefit from modern refurbishments.

The new homes range in size from 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom units to 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom units and feature high quality fittings and finishes. The homes also include special Liveable Housing Design features to suit residents’ abilities and changing needs.

Twelve of the 26 units will be made available for sale to local seniors, with sales proceeds used to fund another seniors housing project in the South West. Access Housing will retain 14 units for affordable rental purposes.

The new Boyanup units will reach completion in May, with the Dardanup units reaching completion shortly after in June.

Local seniors can register their interest to purchase or rent one of the units by contacting Access Housing’s South West office on 9722 7200.
