Kensington Gardens Albury Retirement Estate
Relax and enjoy the ultimate in retirement living
When you visit Kensington Gardens Albury, you’ll immediately notice the strong sense of community. Our 190 homes are situated on wide streets, that help to give you the impression that you aren’t in a retirement village at all.
In fact, our Estate feels just like a normal suburb anywhere in Australia – except that the lawns and gardens are maintained so much better!
At Kensington Gardens Albury we’re often told “nothing else compares”. And when you visit us, you’ll see why.
The complete facilities for your chosen retirement lifestyle
At Kensington Gardens Albury you’ll have the convenience of all our estate facilities within an easy stroll of your home.
The vibrant regional city of Albury is just 10 minutes’ drive away. Or, if you’d prefer to leave the car at home, use the convenient council bus services or perhaps arrange carpooling with your neighbours.
And there’s always the option of getting out and about and exploring our beautiful country setting on foot, with direct access to many paved walking tracks — something our residents enjoy doing regularly.
You’ll find our estate’s first class recreation facilities contribute greatly to your lifestyle at Kensington Gardens. Our Country Club and facilities include:

…all available for your enjoyment at no extra cost. And if you’re looking for “a perfect way to ruin a good walk”, Thurgoona Golf Course is located right on our boundary, with direct access from the Estate.
Note that we do not provide aged care at Kensington Gardens, but you are welcome to source your own external home care services.
Quality, affordable homes offering the retirement lifestyle you deserve
When you come to live at Kensington Gardens, you can select your new home from our range of 17 award-winning three and four bedroom floor plans.
Our luxurious homes feature quality brick veneer and tile construction, and range in size from a spacious 18 squares (171m2) up to 27 squares (256m2). They offer you a relaxed standard of living rarely seen in a lifestyle estate.
Once you’ve chosen your preferred home from our 15+ designs, you then have the flexibility to make changes to the plan so that it perfectly suits your lifestyle. You can move the position of practically anything within the footprint of your home – even the bathroom and kitchen.
Enabling you to create the home you really want to enjoy is very important to us. That’s why you can also completely customise the colours of your home to ideally suit you – or talk to our New Home Co-ordinators who can help you ensure your design is practical and suited to your lifestyle.
Whichever home design you choose, you’ll have generous space between you and your neighbours – not crammed together like traditional retirement villages or some new housing estates. And when you look out your back door, you’ll enjoy the view of a beautifully maintained lawn, garden, and instead of a fence, a gorgeous ‘living screen’ or hedge.
It all works to create a feeling of space and luxury that’s unique in retirement living.
Fully maintained retirement living
Once you move into Kensington Gardens Albury you can throw your lawn mower away! All your internal and external maintenance is taken care of.
The Estate is beautifully maintained, and kept clean and tidy just the way you like it. It all adds to the feeling of quality and the sense of community pride that’s part of our DNA.
Family is important to us – which is why your loved ones are welcome to come and stay with you and enjoy the hospitality of your beautiful home. And if you have the grandkids to stay, they won’t be short of things to do – take them to a movie in our luxury cinema for starters!
A family owned business that’s focused on quality
One thing you might not think of when you’re comparing your retirement living options, is the importance of investigating the ownership structure that different villages operate under.
Kensington Gardens is a family owned and run business. We think that’s the best way to ensure we provide the highest standard of service to our residents.
We’ve taken great care to assemble a team of warm, friendly people who take a genuine interest in helping you to enjoy your retirement lifestyle.
We’re proud of our reputation as a high quality over 50’s estate – and we work hard to maintain it.
A safe and secure retirement community
Once you’ve retired, you want to feel safe in your own home. At Kensington Gardens Albury you can relax, knowing that when you’re away our close-knit community will keep an eye on your home for you.
There is an emergency phone system in every home, and with our staff on-site 24 hours, 7 days a week, you’ll always have a responsible person available for your peace of mind.
Easy-to-understand retirement village costs
When you’re enjoying your retirement, you don’t want to spend a lot of time thinking about bills and tracking your expenses. That’s why we’ve worked hard to make our fees transparent and easy to understand.
Our residents pay a low recurring monthly operating fee to cover general outgoings, including:
- Council rates and taxes
- Water rates
- Lawn mowing, common garden maintenance
- Insurance (including both your home and public liability in all common areas)
- And of course, full use of our Country Club facilities
