Taylor Street offers a relaxed and independent lifestyle in a low maintenance property where you can enjoy regular social activities, the companionship of new friends (and old friends as pets are welcome) and the security and peace of mind of living in a gated community perfectly positioned close to the centre of Armidale.
Inside the village you will find 44 two and three bedroom fully self-contained villas that are perfectly positioned to catch the northerly light and the warmth it provides. The warmth that comes from a close-knit community is created in the Village Centre and nurtured by the Village Manager. The Village Centre is open to all residents and the facilities include:
We want you to enjoy all that our Taylor Street Village has to offer so we remove the burden of home maintenance by taking care of the gardening, upkeep of each home and all village common areas.
It’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy the lifestyle you have worked so hard for.
Anyone can build a Retirement Village, but not everyone can create an environment that residents love to call home. That’s what drives us at Oak Tree and that’s what we do best. To help residents receive the lifestyle they deserve at Taylor Street is Village Manager, Kate Pigram.
Kate Pigram’s family have called Armidale home since 1967 and since then Kate has garnered close ties with many community groups and has got to know many local residents through her connection to St Mary’s Church, former role at University of New England and as Village Manager of Oak Tree Armidale in Armidale and Area Manager for New England.
Kate says, “I believe Armidale is a wonderful regional city with such a diverse range of people. My family are privileged to have had the opportunity to grow up here and now I’m excited to be helping people to retire here.”
Kate is in charge of coordinating social activities and events, managing incoming and outgoing residents, arranging contractors and helping transition incoming and outgoing residents.

The winters may be frosty due to the elevation of Armidale, but the summers give warm relief without the humidity you find near the coast. Residents can enjoy four noticeable seasons here with the colours of Autumn and Spring bringing the countryside, private gardens and parks to life.
Our Taylor Street Village is perfectly located to soak up the natural beauty of Armidale whilst remaining conveniently close to the City Centre. The retirement village is across the road from vast parklands which are home to a thriving Community Garden, off-leash dog park and playing fields.
Within walking distance you’ll find the New England Regional Art Museum, the Conservatorium of Music and a number of cafes for you to try.
Just minutes away by car or bus is the Armidale Golf Club, Armidale City Bowling Club, Armidale Private Hospital and a fortnightly Farmer’s Markets where you can pick up fresh and locally grown produce. Also, if you’re that way inclined, there’s a Bunnings just down the road!
Armidale is known to be a University town as it is home to the University of New England. Close to our village is a University for the Third Age which encourages retirees in their third ‘age’ of life to learn for pleasure and study subjects that take their fancy.
There is a local bus service with a stop across the road and there will also be a village community bus which will take residents to town and on monthly social jaunts.
