The Wellings Concept
Where common sense and commonalities unite
According to recent statistics, there are more Canadians over the age of 55, than there are younger folk. As the population tables turn, Nautical Lands Group (NLG) is addressing the changing demographic with the Wellings concept.
This concept has not only been embraced by those who choose to live in a Wellings’ community, but it has also been recognized by Global Awards for creating outstanding housing alternatives for those who are over the age of 50.
For many, the responsibility of owning a home in terms of maintenance and expenses (as it relates to time and money), becomes more than they are willing to spend. Both of these assets would be better directed to doing things that they really want to do, and going to places that they’ve always dreamed of going to.
The Wellings of Picton is one of the communities by NLG, and is located in Prince Edward County, just minutes from downtown Picton. A total of 88 one- and two-bedroom apartments are offered at the Wellings, with rents starting in the mid $2,000s. These upscale apartment communities include a full kitchen, appliances, a walk-in shower and in-suite laundry, as well as a full-time concierge and management team.
At the centre of the community is the Atrium – a four-storey, 8,000-square foot area with natural light and full-size trees. The Atrium is, most-definitely, the residential hub, where residents socialize with neighbours in the dining room or games area, enjoy the theatre space or relax in more-intimate conversation areas.
Healthcare is provided by VON, and residents can make their own arrangements, as needed. In a Wellings’ community, personal preferences are chosen by each resident, and they only pay for the services that they want. “Each new community evolves as a result of the the previous one ,” says Kevin Pidgeon, president and COO of Nautical Lands Group. “We’re not just the designers, we’re the operators of the communities as well. We are a nimble company, always striving to bring a next-level experience to our residents.”
Prince Edward County has become a sought-after destination, offering a unique blend of peaceful calm, along with a vibrant village atmosphere. Just minutes from the town of Picton, the Wellings is ideally situated to take advantage of all that the county has to offer, including well-known wineries, beautiful beaches and the area’s other natural attributes. Pidgeon goes on to say, “When you’re building communities like the Wellings, which focus on comfort and convenience, as well as an a-la-carte living model, our residents have more choices, and more control, of their own expenses – and of their lifestyle.”
