The Parks Villages - Family takes the bridge at Bridgewater Retirement Estate, Roxburgh Park

Under the management of successive owners over recent years, a fair bit of water has passed under the bridge at Bridgewater Lake Retirement Estate. And, while the original families have experienced a comfortable lifestyle with all the facilities you could want in a brilliant location, it’s fair to say that the estate has not advanced in quite the way it deserves. That’s why the acquisition of Bridgewater Lake in mid-2015 by the Martens family, operating under The Parks Villages, is such great news for all concerned.

Importantly, they represent the first family to own Bridgewater Lake. Managing Director, Ben Martens was quick to meet the residents to answer their questions before discussing his plans. And the smiling faces all around the estate are proof positive that the future is looking very sunny for what should have always been a star retirement attraction in Melbourne’s northern suburbs. At last, its potential can be realised for current and future residents.

The Parks Villages, brings two generations’ experience to Bridgewater Lake. They have a proven track record running a select portfolio of retirement villages with their trademark enthusiasm, professionalism and unswerving personal commitment. In fact, the Martens family has been directly involved in the development and day-to-day running of retirement villages for nearly 30 years. The Parks Villages currently operates the very successful Elms Retirement Estate in Kilmore Victoria as well as Langton Park Village in South Australia.

With their arrival at Bridgewater Lake, the estate is – like its residents – taking on a new lease of life. The clubhouse, with its community-run bar, and exhaustive list of sporting and leisure facilities, stands ready to welcome new members, and a choice of spacious, two-bedroom-and-study homes are ready to build to the client’s specifications and finish.

Surrounded by parkland and adjacent to the Broadmeadows Valley Trail, Bridgewater Lake is a little oasis of green in the convenience of suburbia. It’s something of a surprise to find just how close it is to Sydney Road, the Western Ring Road, the ultra-modern Roxburgh Park railway station and the recently refurbished Roxburgh Park Shopping Centre.

With an eye to the future, residents can enjoy a completely independent lifestyle here, reassured by the knowledge that the Moran residential aged-care facility is just next door. Then again, the future has never been more assured at Bridgewater Lake, where you’re invited to join the contented residents already enjoying a very special lifestyle as part of the Martens’ extended ‘family’.
