Pinnacle Living celebrates 15 years
This year marks the 15th anniversary of Pinnacle Living, the family-owned business behind Yarrbat Place, Tudor Village and Bellarine Springs retirement villages.
It all began for Pinnacle Living back in 2004, when CEO Geoff Reeve, a qualified civil engineer, set out on a journey to establish a new benchmark in retirement living, centred on a genuine commitment to creating high quality villages and driving positive outcomes for residents.
Starting with the acquisition of Tudor Village in Lilydale, followed by the creation of new villages at Yarrbat Place in Balwyn and Bellarine Springs in Drysdale, Geoff has used his energy and determination to create homes and communities that are second-to none in quality, presentation and reputation.
Opened in 2008, Yarrbat Place is now regarded as one of Melbourne’s most exclusive retirement villages, offering just 42 premium apartments and villas set among tranquil gardens in one of Melbourne’s best streets. Home to a friendly, active community of residents, homes at Yarrbat Place rarely become available.
When purchased by Pinnacle Living in 2004, Tudor Village had 200 homes, but within five years, Geoff and his team had added a further 56 homes. Continual improvements (including a new community centre in 2015) have since made it the region’s most highly regarded retirement community. Work is now underway on 48 architect-designed homes so that others may enjoy the best retirement possible.
Pinnacle Living’s newest village, Bellarine Springs welcomed its first resident in 2016, and has been growing rapidly ever since. Located in the heart of the thriving seaside township of Drysdale, it is a very friendly, active community, with facilities that include a modern MBA-Award-winning community centre set within a picturesque site.
On this 15th anniversary of Pinnacle Living, Geoff says he and his wife Elissa are proud of each village, and are “constantly humbled” by the strength and support of the community and the improved wellness of residents. “The improvement to people’s lives in the villages is the source of motivation for all that we do, and we’re thrilled to have achieved a milestone of 15 years helping that come about,” Geoff says.
