FES­TI­VAL TO KICK OFF NEXT STAGE

The Courier-Mail - Home - - AFFORDABLE OPTIONS - BELINDA CHILTON

Cel­e­bra­tions are in full swing at In­ge­nia Life­style’s Cham­bers Pines project, with a street fes­ti­val set for June 3 to cel­e­brate a new stage and new home de­signs.

The cel­e­bra­tion will run from 10am-2pm, com­plete with soul­ful live jazz, a se­lec­tion of food trucks and ex­pert ad­vice on the down­siz­ing process.

Down­siz­ers are jump­ing at the chance to be part of the land lease home own­er­ship model, with the Cham­bers Pines over 50s liv­ing com­mu­nity set to launch its new stage de­vel­op­ment as well as a range of in­no­va­tive homes.

Project sales man­ager Lynda Rud­dell said the land lease model of­fered by In­ge­nia Life­style was be­com­ing a sought-after op­tion for down­siz­ers, with the fi­nal few mo­du­lar homes in the cur­rent stage sell­ing fast.

“The ma­jor dif­fer­ence with these new homes is the tra­di­tional con­struc­tion method of homes be­ing built on site and with­out stairs, of­fer­ing over 50s an al­ter­na­tive hous­ing so­lu­tion with all the ben­e­fits of qual­ity, speed and af­ford­abil­ity,” Ms Rud­dell said.

The min­i­mal use of stairs helped the home own­ers with age­ing stay in place, she said.

“The land lease own­er­ship model is al­ready an­swer­ing the af­ford­abil­ity de­mand and is now set to help ease the re­ported pain on the short­age of suit­able homes for Lo­gan’s se­nior pop­u­la­tion,” Ms Rud­dell said.

She said the homes en­abled res­i­dents to down­size but still re­tain their eli­gi­bil­ity for gov­ern­ment rental as­sis­tance on the weekly site fees.

“Due to the strate­gic place­ment of the homes on site, res­i­dents are able to down­size to a more man­age­able home while still be­ing able to take full ad­van­tage of fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance from the gov­ern­ment,” Ms Rud­dell said.

In­ge­nia Life­style Cham­bers Pines of­fers buy­ers new mo­du­lar homes from $239,000 and new tra­di­tional-built homes from $247,000.

The next stage of the com­mu­nity is set to in­clude such ameni­ties as a mod­ern club­house, a re­sort-style swim­ming pool and a com­pe­ti­tion-stan­dard bowl­ing green for res­i­dents to en­joy.

Home de­signs at the In­ge­nia Life­style Cham­bers Pines de­vel­op­ment fo­cus on en­sur­ing res­i­dents can eas­ily age in one place.
