Why is Greenhaven Estate called a "Lifestyle Estate"?
Padfield Park, a quiet suburb of Durban, South Africa, offers a plethora of social opportunities for its residents. Greenhaven Estate, nestled on the border of Kloof and Pinetown in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, stands as a testament to an idyllic over 50s lifestyle estate.
While the terms "retirement village" and "lifestyle estate" are often used interchangeably, Greenhaven distinguishes itself by striking a perfect balance between healthcare support and promoting an enriching, active lifestyle. Greenhaven Estate stands out as being more than just a ‘retirement village’ but as an exceptional over 50s lifestyle estate, offering residents a unique blend of tranquility, community, and an active lifestyle.
