Home prices vary depending on the size of the home, other design features and whether it is new or pre-occupied. Prices for homes currently available will be provided on request. There may also be a range of upgrade options possible if construction of your home is not yet completed.

Our contract form is a Long Term Lease so when you move in, you pay a lump sum in return for the right to occupy your home for up to 49 years and to access the village facilities. The underlying ownership is retained by the village owner and no stamp duty is payable.

In addition, you will pay a monthly service fee which covers the ongoing operational costs of the village. Annual increases in service fees are generally limited to CPI in accordance with the Retirement Villages Act.

Our clubhouse

Bridgewater Lake is dedicated to providing an exclusive home environment with carefully curated facilities. At the centre of this enviable lifestyle is the Café overlooking a central courtyard and tranquil water feature. It's positioning creates a central hub to meet family and friends. The residents humorously named the cafe "Geri's" some years ago.

The beautifully landscaped grounds of Bridgewater Lake are fully accessible throughout the property via easily found walking paths. You can also feel secure in the knowledge that your safety is a priority, with external video surveillance and boom gate entry control to the village.

One of the best decisions of our lives...

Frank - Bridgewater Lake Resident

My wife and I moved to Melbourne from a small community in rural Victoria. Since moving in, we have enjoyed many of the facilities, including Club Bridgewater, bowls, water aerobics and the café. We have made new friends and found the residents warm, friendly and inviting. The staff have been great in helping us settle into our new home and the Melbourne environment. I think in choosing the Bridgewater Lake Retirement Estate my wife and I have made one of the best decisions of our lives.

One look at our now home and we were sold...

Lyn - Bridgewater Lake resident

After watching both our parents struggle in housing was that was not suitable for their age we made the decision to move from our home with steep stairs and high maintenance garden. We were impressed by the community facilities, common areas and of course, one look at our now home and we were sold before driving out of the village. We have made a circle of firm friends and watching the village grow has been both interesting and exciting.

I have absolutely loved shifting here...

Cheryl - Bridgewater Lake Resident

I have been living at Bridgewater Lake Retirement Estate for 11 years now. I lived in my family home until I could no longer look after it. I had friends that live at Bridgewater Lake before I shifted in and I was coming up frequently at weekends and enjoyed getting to know everyone. It is the best thing I have ever done and my family love coming to visit. There is always something happening - I have absolutely loved shifting here to Bridgewater Lake.
