RE­TIRE WITH BEN­E­FITS

The Courier-Mail - Home - - STAGE ONE SELLING - BELINDA CHILTON

The pent­houses have been snapped up and more than 50 per cent of stage one has sold, at Wes­ley Mis­sion Queens­land’s new­est over 65s de­vel­op­ment.

Rose­mount Re­tire­ment Com­mu­nity will be built over two stages, with stage one – the seven-storey, 70-apart­ment Mad­den due for com­ple­tion in early 2019, and the four-storey, 65-apart­ment Ty­nan set to fol­low.

A vil­lage green will sep­a­rate the two build­ings, with res­i­dents also en­joy­ing re­sort­style ameni­ties such as an out­door heated swim­ming pool, gym­na­sium, cafe, li­brary, lounge area and cin­ema.

Wes­ley Mis­sion Queens­land Re­tire­ment Liv­ing sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Jenny Horne said lo­cal down­siz­ers were the main buy­ers get­ting in early.

“The ma­jor­ity of buy­ers are down­siz­ing from their fam­ily homes,” Ms Horne said. “They are lo­cals not want­ing to leave the area, but want­ing a life­style where they don’t have big yards and swim­ming pools to look af­ter or big houses to clean, but still want the life­style and fa­cil­i­ties with rea­son­ably large apart­ments.”

The one, two and three-bed­room apart­ments have se­cure un­der­cover car park­ing, lift ac­cess, a 24-hour emer­gency call sys­tem, am­ple stor­age and re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing, while most have a study area.

Ms Horne said one of the big­gest ben­e­fits of mov­ing into a re­tire­ment com­mu­nity was be­ing part of a friendly en­vi­ron­ment. She said it was bet­ter to move while still young enough to get the most en­joy­ment out of the fa­cil­i­ties.

Ms Horne said res­i­dents from Wes­ley Mis­sion’s other com­plexes of­ten told her they wished they had made the move sooner.

The Rose­mount com­mu­nity will be colo­cated with Wes­ley Mis­sion Queens­land’s Sin­na­mon Vil­lage res­i­den­tial aged-care com­mu­ni­ties and well­ness cen­tre, giv­ing res­i­dents the abil­ity to age in place.

Apart­ment prices start at $385,500, with con­struc­tion ex­pected to start in Septem­ber.

Rose­mount Re­tire­ment Com­mu­nity has launched to the mar­ket, with 50 per cent of stage one, in­clud­ing the pent­houses, al­ready sold.
