Mt Eden Gardens

467 Mount Eden Road, Mount Eden, Auckland

A boutique retirement community in Central Auckland

All the charm and convenience of leafy Mount Eden

Few people realise there’s a boutique retirement living community only 400 metres from much-admired Mt Eden village, with its café culture and attractive shops. At the road frontage, Mt Eden Gardens has a low profile but on entry you’ll discover 35 gracious apartments and some excellent on-site facilities, including a gym, workshop, restaurant and barbecue courtyard. This community really is a wonderful surprise, if you’re looking to downsize without giving up the pleasures of urban life.

The pleasures of inner-city living; the feeling of a close-knit village

Mt Eden Gardens is like a village within a village. There are only 35 apartments in total, so you really get a sense of knowing your neighbours. What’s more, elegant Mt Eden Village - one of Auckland’s most-loved traditional shopping centres - is just 400 metres away. Whenever you get the urge, you can stroll along for coffee, fruit and veggie supplies, a loaf of bread from Olaf’s and a browse around Time Out bookshop. Everyday life is so easy and enriched in this special neighbourhood.

Within Mt Eden Gardens you’ll find a range of facilities and activities that help you to maintain fitness, stay healthy and make friends with other residents. There are other recreational amenities close by, including Mt Eden Tennis Club, Epsom Remuera Croquet Club, and swimming pools in Bellevue Road and Newmarket. For fitness walks, there are tracks up Maungawhau. A daily hike to the summit, if your health allows, is an excellent base for your fitness regime.

For the practicalities of life, Countdown Mt Eden is a five-minute drive away. There’s also a handy supermarket within the 277 Broadway complex. Major shopping centres in the area include Newmarket, St Lukes and the Heart of the City retail precinct. There’s also a medical centre just two minutes’ walk from Mt Eden Gardens.

Culture is easy to find too. Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, Gow Langsford Gallery, the Civic Theatre, SkyCity Theatre and Q Theatre are all a quick bus ride away – and the bus leaves from right outside the gate!

Arvida. Living a life with soul.
