RE­LAXED BUT AC­TIVE

North Coast Weekender - - Invest or Nest -

A YANCHEP life­style vil­lage has for sale a lim­ited num­ber of vil­las, al­low­ing over 55s to en­joy re­laxed coastal liv­ing.

Priced from $450,000, the Beach­side Bethanie homes each fea­ture two dou­ble bed­rooms plus built-in robes, study, bath­room, pow­der room, spa­cious kitchen with high-qual­ity fix­tures and fin­ishes, and laun­dry.

A dou­ble garage and re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing are also in­cluded, while a 24hour mon­i­tored emer­gency duress sys­tem in­stalled in all vil­las and on­site vil­lage man­ager help pro­vide peace of mind.

Bethanie chief ex­ec­u­tive Chris How said mod­ern re­tire­ment liv­ing must of­fer choice and free­dom.

“We want to en­sure the res­i­dents have the free­dom to do as much or as lit­tle as they please,” he said.

“One ex­am­ple of this and a real bonus of life at Beach­side is the res­i­dents’ club­house.”

Ex­clu­sive to res­i­dents, the club­house is the so­cial hub of the vil­lage, of­fer­ing life­style ameni­ties and ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a cov­ered heated swim­ming pool, bowling green, fully equipped gym­na­sium, crafts room, hair sa­lon, li­brary, din­ing room and bar, and men’s shed.

Mr How said there were also con­sid­er­able ad­van­tages to liv­ing on the coast.

“Just a stone’s throw away, res­i­dents can ex­plore mag­nif­i­cent caves, marvel at birdlife or en­joy na­ture at Yanchep Na­tional Park,” he said.

Noel and Glenda Shea moved to the vil­lage three years ago and have no in­ten­tion of leav­ing.

“Be­fore mov­ing, we searched through all the life­style vil­lages from Yanchep to Bun­bury for four years be­fore fi­nally mak­ing our de­ci­sion,” Mr Shea said.

“We first liked Bethanie Beach­side be­cause there was car­a­van park­ing avail­able and we like to travel around, but af­ter liv­ing here for about a year, we sold the car­a­van as liv­ing at Bethanie Beach­side is a hol­i­day ev­ery day. We’ve made many great friends since mov­ing in and en­joy all the so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties on of­fer. Glenda is in­volved in arts and crafts with the other ladies and I en­joy the men’s shed.”

Bethanie Beach­side at 629 Two Rocks Road is open Fri­days, 2.30-3.30pm or by ap­point­ment. For de­tails, call 131 151 or visit bethanie.com.au.

Vil­las of­fer in­de­pen­dence and flex­i­bil­ity of a pri­vate home with the ad­van­tage of a 24-hour emer­gency call sys­tem.
