Welcome to Chatsford - The Lifestyle Choice

From aesthetics to infrastructure, Chatsford – The Lifestyle Choice ticks all the boxes for stress-free living.

Many of Chatsford’s 320 residents recall when they entered the spacious grounds, that this is somewhere special – somewhere friendly and warm, and felt that indefinable sense that this was a place they would be proud to call home.

One of the most common comments residents make is, “I wish I had made the move sooner – I love it here”.

Throughout all of Chatsford's 30 years of planning and evolution the focus has remained firmly on giving its residents an unsurpassed lifestyle.

From the outset the plan was bold and visionary with amenities such as a 20 - metre indoor heated swimming pool, library, hairdressing salon, bowling green and large community centre.

Proudly standing as one of New Zealand’s largest and best appointed lifestyle communities, Chatsford is a registered retirement village as defined by the Retirement Villages Act 2003, and an accredited member of the New Zealand Retirement Villages Association.

Chatsford’s 11 hectares of immaculately maintained gardens surround the attractive homes, and apartments many of which have an outlook to the attractive rural landscape.

Residents can choose to be completely independent and for example, maintain their own gardens, or take advantage of Chatsford’s gardening team. Additional services such as cleaning, meals and laundry provide a welcome respite if needed, and these can be arranged if, or as, required.

The thriving Chatsford community offers a diverse and interesting range of activities and gatherings.

Located within easy access to Mosgiel, and a comfortable 15 minute commute to Dunedin city, Chatsford’s residents are well positioned to enjoy many cultural and rural lifestyle benefits.
