The Kensington Park Lifestyle Village

Kensington-Park lifestyle village perfectly combines luxury apartment living and open, green outdoor space. This pet-friendly community is ideally located for bushwalking and walking to local shops, restaurants, and houses of worship.


It’s a life Marion enjoys, along with the rest of her neighbours who are drawn to the Hibiscus Coast’s beautiful Orewa Beach and bustling town centre. Their terraced double-level homes are close to the beach and in the heart of a friendly resort neighbourhood.



If you’re looking for the lifestyle of a gated community with access to luxurious apartment living surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens, then look no further than Riverstone Kensington. Our residents say they are lured by the community’s relaxed vibe and easy walkability. Many are couples downsizers from estate-size homes seeking lower maintenance to free up time for family and travel.


One of the keys to our community’s success is the strong sense of connection with your neighbours, thanks to a regular roster of social activities organised by a dedicated team. This allows you to meet people from diverse backgrounds and form friendships. Often, these connections turn into companies for life.


A wide array of residential amenities is also available onsite, such as a fully equipped gymnasium and sauna to help you keep fit, as well as a heated swimming pool and putting green for those who enjoy golf or tennis. Unlike most residential estates, these facilities are exclusive to the residents of Kensington Park. So, you can take full advantage of them without worrying about overcrowding.


In addition to the onsite amenities, you can access a broader range of local services, such as the nearby shopping centre with various restaurants and department stores. You can also enjoy the many parks, beaches, and bush walks just a short drive from your new home.


The Kensington-Park lifestyle village offers various recreational opportunities, from biking and boating to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Its 4,481 acres provide a scenic, wooded landscape dotted with lakes perfect for fishing or a picnic.


For a more cultural experience, you can attend concerts and art exhibitions at the historic Royal Opera House. There is also a range of eateries, including Japanese and French restaurants and coffee shops.


Orewa is a friendly, beachside resort town just 30 minutes north of Auckland CBD and is renowned for its beautiful sands and bustling village shopping. Marion Ellis, who lives at Kensington Park in Orewa, says the location is ideal. “I’m within walking distance of Orewa beach, the town centre and a collection of bush walks,” she said. “That really suits my lifestyle.”



A key benefit of living at Kensington Park is the community and social connections you’ll make with your neighbours. Whether it’s a chat over the backyard fence, getting together for lunch or participating in one of the regular rosters of social events, someone will always be around to look out for you and your well-being.

There are various independent living homes at Kensington Park, including Studios/Apartments and Villas. Each includes a spacious lounge/bedroom/kitchenette, nurse call buttons and a full ensuite with shower, toilet, and vanity.


Marion Ellis, a resident of the Orewa-based village, says life at Kensington Park is all about embracing a relaxed beach lifestyle. The empty-nester moved to the Hibiscus Coast township 30 minutes north of Auckland in 2016 and immediately felt at home in her new terraced double-level house. She loves the proximity of Orewa’s beautiful sands, a welcoming shopping village and the collection of local bush walks nearby.


In addition to various residential and communal facilities, Kensington Park offers an onsite doctor’s surgery, hairdresser, and physiotherapist. The village also has a bus that regularly stops outside the estate and a van that takes residents to Strawberry Square in St John’s for groceries or other errands.


The residential estate is surrounded by lush Kensington-Park lifestyle village park-like grounds, providing ample space for residents to enjoy a walk, a quiet afternoon reading, or spend time with family and friends. The calming atmosphere makes Kensington Park ideal for couples, who are often drawn to the neighbourhood because of its easy walkability and proximity to local shops and restaurants. It’s also an excellent choice for downsizers looking to free up their high-maintenance homes, while enjoying a quality lifestyle.



The onsite village facilities and community events will help you connect with your new neighbours and friends. If you prefer to travel, you can rest easy knowing there are plenty of transport options within proximity. You’ll find everything you need to live your best life at Kensington Park.
