Introducing Yarra Rossa

BaptistCare’s newest Retirement Living Community is underway in Canberra and is due for completion late 2021. It is called BaptistCare Yarra Rossa.

Drawing inspiration from nearby Yarralumla community (“Yarra”) and its location in the prestigious suburb of Red Hill (known for its rich, red “Rossa” soil), BaptistCare Yarra Rossa is a new luxury community exclusive to over 55s.

BaptistCare Yarra Rossa is comprised of 100 architecturally designed apartments spread across five low rise precincts in a resort-style community. There are one, two and three bedroom apartments available that feature open plan living, modern fixtures and appliances and private balconies.

The community facilities are many, including a pool, gym, café, community garden, bocce court, a clubhouse (called “Conjola”, after the National Park familiar to many Canberrans) and bowling green. There’s also a library, hair and beauty salon, a private village green, a walking track, outdoor chess, a workshop and an alfresco dining area with a pizza oven and BBQ for residents to enjoy.

BaptistCare Yarra Rossa has been designed to enrich the lives of those who live there, with a range of activities offered by the Community, so residents can be as social and active as they want to be. The many communal spaces allow people to mix and use them at their pleasure with their family and friends, ensuring a retirement on their terms and a home they can love.

The site is beautifully situated in the bushy suburb of Red Hill, near nature reserves and within a friendly local community. With sweeping views of Red Hill Nature Reserve to the west and beautiful district views to the east, village residents will enjoy the tranquil surrounds of the local area while being only 8km from the central business district.

As well as peaceful and tranquil vistas, Yarra Rossa offers peace of mind too, with a Village Manager, support staff and maintenance on site and two high quality aged care centres only two minutes away, plus access to our significant range of home care services in the ACT.

Creating a deep sense of community has been central to the vision of Yarra Rossa. Its two-hectare site is the old Morling Lodge aged care facility site – which was the first Residential Aged Care centre in the ACT – it has a strong history of community and care, which aligns strongly with the ethos and values of BaptistCare as a not-for-profit organisation that genuinely cares for the people we serve. BaptistCare is a trusted brand that has been operating in this sector for over 75 years.

Yarra Rossa is open for enquiries and building completion is set for late 2021.
