Frequently asked questions about Warrendine Court
Q: Is Warrendine Court a village for over-55's?
A: No. While the most senior owner-occupiers are around 80, the youngest is only their 20's, and resident children range from baby to teenage. As with any village, people of all ages find their place in the community. The elder residents of Warrendine Court live independently, but with friendly neighbours to keep an eye out, and maybe lend a hand if needed, there's no reason to feel isolated. There are no steps anywhere in the Warrendine Court complex, and with ramped footpath access all the way from Warrendine Court to Orange City Centre, Warrendine Court is as practical for parents needing to push strollers as it is for seniors wanting to zoom around town on mobility scooters.
Q: Are pets allowed at Warrendine Court?
A: Yes. Some residents keep pets as companions. With not mere 'courtyards' but fully-enclosed backyards for each townhouse, and close proximity to the leash-free dog area in Elephant Park, Warrendine Court is a great place to live with small, good-natured dogs, for example.
Q: How much does it cost to buy a townhouse at Warrendine Court?
A: It depends. For a renovated 2-bedroom townhouse, the desired price is typically upwards of $200,000. A basically-renovated 3-bedroom townhouse usually has an asking price of around $220,000. We are yet to see any of the more recent, high-end renovation examples reaching the market, so the anticipated upper benchmark of $230,000-250,000 is yet to be realised. On rare occasions, townhouses in original condition might come up for sale, and those with tired-looking interior finishes tend to sell more cheaply than renovated townhouses.
Q: What is the proportion of renters to owner-occupiers at Warrendine Court?
A: At the present time, approximately 60% of residents at Warrendine Court are owner-occupiers. Most tenants stay long-term and move for genuine reasons such as purchasing their own home elsewhere, or relocating for work. Only townhouse owners can attend Body Corporate meetings and vote on decisions, however within the community itself, there is no social distinction between 'owners' and 'renters'.
Q: Can anyone use the Village Green for picnics, weddings, parties, anything?
A: No, only residents and their guests can use the Village Green. Access to any common area by uninvited public is prohibited. Although the Village Green would make a lovely garden wedding venue, it is not available for hire (due to insurance and public liability considerations).
