Exceptional aged care in prestigious surrounds
Heritage-listed BlueCross Yarralee stands tall among the exclusive mansions of Kew’s leafy Sackville Street.
This is a home with history, and all architectural features have been retained, from the splendid entrance to the original fireplace. The décor is of the highest quality, with generous areas for socialising as well as courtyard gardens to enjoy quieter pursuits. From its stately gazebo, fountain and palm trees as you enter to the gilt mirrors, stained glass and bay windows, vaulted ceilings and antique furniture indoors, Yarralee offers stylish and prestigious accommodation.
Offering 48 places, Yarralee caters to people with high level care needs with a focus on life engagement, health and wellbeing.
At Yarralee, we believe second best is not an option and invite you to experience our unrivalled care in a setting of period grace and charm.
BlueCross Yarralee is inviting from the moment you pull up to its doors, with the grand gazebo, fountain and manicured garden leading to its impressive façade.
Yarralee has two storeys and a mezzanine floor. In the original building, it features a formal lounge and sitting room on the ground floor. Flowing through towards the rear of the building is a spacious open plan dining, sitting and multipurpose room, and a residential zone with courtyards set either side.
Upstairs is a large sitting room that extends onto a balcony. Another smaller balcony overlooks one of the courtyards below.
Further amenities include self service tea and coffee stations, reverse cycle air conditioning and gas log fires to ensure comfortable spaces indoors.
Outdoors, two private courtyards and a secure garden are perfect places to indulge a green thumb or enjoy tea with family. The mansion’s rare combination of relaxed and Victorian-era elegance makes it a unique place to call home.
BlueCross Yarralee has 48 generous rooms with Standard, Deluxe and Mezzanine accommodation. Rooms enjoy views of our private courtyards or garden or overlook our beautiful landscaped frontage with gazebo and soaring palms and may also have sliding door access to the courtyards or garden.
At BlueCross Yarralee residents’ wellbeing is always front of mind. The wide range of leisure and lifestyle programs and diversional therapies are designed to encourage participation and engagement of all our residents.
These include art and craft, card and board games, quizzes, bus outings, cooking classes, music therapy & piano entertainment. Animal lovers will enjoy the daily visits from our two little dogs, feeding our resident bird or the serenity of the fish in our tropical aquarium.
BlueCross Yarralee offers hairdressing, podiatry and physiotherapy services which may attract a fee.
