Lauriston Park

91 Coleridge Street, Leamington, Cambridge

A perfect balance of town and country

  • Independent living Villas

Situated on the highest point in Cambridge, Lauriston Park is an Arivda Living Well Community with sweeping views of farmland and out to the Pirongia and Te Miro Hills.

In contrast with the community’s iconic Victorian homestead Whare Ora, new buildings feature distinctive contemporary architecture. Award-winning gardens are the finishing touch for one of New Zealand’s most eye-catching retirement communities. The lifestyle at Lauriston Park is equally captivating. Residents live in spacious architecturally-designed two and three-bedroom villas with vaulted ceilings, double glazing, heat pumps and outdoor living areas that are framed by landscaped gardens. It’s an easy walk to nearby Leamington village for cafés, shops, supermarket and medical centre, and cycling trails that lead you to Lake Karapiro which is only 10 kilometres away.

A community that makes it easy for everyone to feel right at home 

You’ll be totally independent at Lauriston Park, however you can put your home maintenance days behind you - we take care of that. There’s also the peace of mind that comes from having a 24-hour monitored emergency call system and security patrols a night. You can also simplify your life by organising help with housework.

Before too long, there will be a new care centre and Living Well apartment complex at Lauriston Park, to provide assisted living, rest home accommodation and specialised dementia care.

For recreation and entertainment on site, there’s a golf putting green and workshop, as well as a community centre equipped with heated swimming pool, spa, gym, theatre, dining room, bar, hair salon and meeting room. The historic Whare Ora homestead also has rooms for recreational pursuits, including billiards and board games and we have a wonderful homestead committee that organise plenty of functions for you to enjoy. If you have a motorhome, there’s a purpose-built vehicle park to keep your wheels safe.

Arvida. Living a life with soul.
