About this listing
This lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home is situated in the ideal position, within walking distance to all the variety of amenities available at Amber Valley. Watch the warthog, zebra and other antelope graze the banks of the wetland from the beautifully enlarged, fully enclosed verandah.
The village offers the elderly a multitude of facilities and excellent security, whilst maintaining an open, flowing aspect to their designs, and the best of care you may require in one's latter years.

Amber Valley prides itself on its substantial open areas, which allow for numerous large game (like zebra) to roam freely amongst the cottages. Game walks are also encouraged with a substantial wilderness area for walks, including numerous picnic spots, all within the bounds of the securely fenced village. Without the need for internal fences, all game is free to move and graze along the many watercourses that twist and flow through the village. Mostly, the eco focus of Amber Valley encourages a harmonious lifestyle within a largely natural environment.
​Amber Valley is situated to the north of Howick, just off the Karkloof road, overlooking numerous dams and streams and nestled comfortably into the surrounding countryside. All this, and only 2km from Howick's full range of amenities.

Howick is a quaint rural town on the Johannesburg to Durban route (just off the N3 highway) and a comfortable 25 minutes from Pietermaritzburg. The kick-off point to the well celebrated Midlands Meander route, Howick is also conveniently close to the best KZN beaches, the world heritage uKahlamba Drakensberg resorts, numerous historic battlefields and the best of KwaZulu-Natal's nature reserves. On Howick's doorstep is Midmar Dam, considered one of the finest inland sailing waters in the country. There are also many activities to be enjoyed in the immediate area, such as golf, hiking and bird watching (not to mention Karkloof Canopy Tours - for the brave!)
The Amber Valley Care Centre is situated within the Amber Valley Retirement Village in Howick, KwaZulu-Natal. It offers 24-hour nursing care, on-site laundry facilities, tasty meals and a cheerful, friendly atmosphere. The facility has 89 single rooms with phones, supported by 3 lounges (with TV's) and a large dining room. The setting is tranquil, with two secure, secluded gardens, whilst the facility is secure with electrically controlled outside doors. The facility itself is light and airy with wide corridors.

With the Amber Lakes development next door, the Amber Valley Care Centre has been effectively updated by Assisted Living Units to cater to the greater Amber residents (Amber Valley, Amber Ridge, Amber Lakes and Amber Lee).

Residents are encouraged, where feasible, to become involved in activities in the Village e.g. playing bridge, attending concerts, and church services in the chapel which is right next door to the Centre. There is an on-site library and hairdresser too.

The Community and Entertainment Centre with 10 Assisted Living Units has also been built across the road from the existing Amber Valley Care Centre block, as an added service and expansion to the needs of the greater Amber Community.
