Perfectly positioned in the sought-after suburb of Essendon along Moreland and Pascoe Vale Roads, you’ll find the idyllic location for Ryman’s proposed new Essendon Retirement Village. Leafy streets, friendly vibe, and endless convenience offer a taste of what this village location will offer. Melbourne CBD is merely 9km away and the Essendon shopping precinct is less than 2km from the village. If you’re wanting to venture a little further, a bus stop is located right outside the village, both Glenbervie Train Station and the local tram stop are within walking distance, plus a Citylink entrance is less than 1km away. It’s your gateway to easy living.
Weaving its way alongside an extensive portion of the village is Moonee Ponds Creek, surrounded by trees and lush green spaces. The village will offer a direct accessway to Moonee Ponds Creek Trail, which follows the creek for approximately 25km. With Five Mile Creek Reserve also bordering the village, you’ll have the perfect setting for walking your furry friend or tiring out those energetic grandkids.
As a Ryman village, the proposed Essendon Village will offer living options to suit everyone, giving you the freedom to live the way you want. You can choose from an independent apartment, and if you need a little extra support, an assisted-living apartment could be just what you need. A state-of-the-art aged-care centre will also be located within the same village community offering residential aged care (low care and high care), and specialist dementia care.
The village will epitomise what it means to live life to the full in retirement. Along with all of the top-notch amenities, activities and events Ryman villages are renowned for, you’ll gain a lifestyle and a community you can thrive in. And for those local to the area, it’s the perfect opportunity to enjoy our village within your local village.
Essendon Village will offer living choices to suit everyone, so residents can live the way they want and blaze their own trails. Our two and three-bedroom apartments will be light and spacious, with clean lines and a clever open plan design layout that provides an easy flow throughout.
If down the track you need more support, we will offer assisted living apartments and a full range of residential aged-care options. That freedom and flexibility is empowering for residents and knowing care can be dialled up as needed means, quite simply, ‘no worries’. It's all part of what we like to call the Ryman Difference.
Our resident-friendly terms are designed to protect you and your family. Our base weekly fee is fixed for the entire time you occupy your apartment*, and our deferred management fee is capped at 20 percent – one of the lowest in the retirement sector.
*Some conditions apply.
Community is central to the lifestyle so we offer amenities that encourage that sense of togetherness. The village will include a café, dining room, bar, hair and beauty salon, and shop.
Retirement is a great time to sharpen your skills on the passions and pastimes that you love. Spend time in the workshop, craft room, billiards room, and library.
Incorporate regular activity into your everyday routine or enjoy the camaraderie of a little game time. We will offer a swimming pool, spa pool, terrace, gym, bowling green, and village walkway loop.

Enjoy all the upsides of living independently in a Ryman village. Easy living, security, plus a huge bonus – the support of a vibrant village community.
Assisted-living apartments come with support you can count on. A chef-prepared meal, housekeeping – it's great for you and reassuring for your family.
Aged care is not an ‘add on’ at a Ryman village, it is built into the fabric of our villages from the very beginning. It’s comforting for couples and friends to know they can still be near each other even if their health needs are different.
Essendon Village will offer a full range of aged-care options including residential aged care (low care and high care) and specialist dementia care. Like all aspects of our villages, we constantly look for ways to improve both the aged care we provide and the innovation behind it. Aged care is customised using our myRyman Care app and residents love the food in our seasonal Delicious menu, which is prepared fresh on site by village chefs.
You will be able to treat yourself to a pamper session in our hair and beauty salon or a sweet treat in the shop.
Lounge and dining areas will provide spaces to relax and enjoy mealtimes. The food tastes great and the social interaction is good for the soul.
Tranquil outdoor spaces dedicated to our care residents will allow you to relax and meet with family and friends.
