Living at Karaka Pines Rototuna
When you visit Karaka Pines Rototuna for the first time you’ll feel an immediate sense of how much simpler and easier life could be.
When the Clubhouse is built as part of Stage Three of the development of the village it will become the focus of community activities. It will include a gym, library and billiards room for you to enjoy as you please. Its delightful village green inspired gardens will feature a croquet lawn, petanque court and lovely tranquil seating areas.
There’s a lot to do here. But of course you can be as involved in community life in the village as much, or as little, as you like. It’s your home, so it’s entirely up to you.
Family and friends are always welcome to visit or to stay. They’ll love how spacious your home is. There’s plenty of room for grandkids to play and space in the kitchen to create memorable meals for family gatherings, like Christmas and birthdays.
As rewarding as living at Karaka Pines Rototuna can be, it doesn’t mean you’re disconnected from the wider community. Many people who live in Karaka Pines Rototuna are closely involved with local sports and social clubs, and some are still working and running businesses.
Your flexible options at Karaka Pines Rototuna extend to how you pay the fees. You’ll find more on our fees, why you pay them, and why we think they’re fair, here.
There are two options.
- The first option is a facilities fee of 12.5% of the sales price of your home in the village paid out of the proceeds when it’s sold. This fee is incurred at 6.25% per year, capped after two years. There is also a weekly fee, which is currently $165/week (but will rise as external costs increase). There is a $50/week discount which applies until the bowling green is available to use. Included in this fee is a contribution to a long-term maintenance fund that will ensure the village is kept in top condition in the years ahead.
- Alternatively, you can choose to pay a fixed weekly fee for the whole time you’re in the village. If you choose this option the facilities fee is increased to 25% of the sale price of your home – incurred at 6.25% per year, capped after four years.
Like all properties that come under the Karaka Pines Villages umbrella, when the time comes to sell, you are the one who benefits from the capital gain in your home, not the management. We think that’s only fair.
