  • Location

    Balwyn is a highly sought-after area renowned for its period and art deco homes, private schools and tree-lined streets. Balwyn has many well-maintained public parks and gardens. Balwyn is well serviced by multiple tram lines, good bus networks and the Eastern Freeway which makes it easy to get around whether you’re heading to the city or the eastern suburbs.

  • Homes

    You’ll find one-bedroom apartments that offer plenty of natural light and an open-plan design, kitchen with dishwasher and split system heating and cooling. Each apartment has a private terrace or balcony.

    VMCH retirement living is special! We champion and celebrate the dignity of every person, with a community spirit that welcomes everyone. This results in friendly and vibrant communities, offering residents the unique opportunity to develop new friendships, participate in activities and enjoy a strong sense of belonging.
