RETIRING TO ACTIVE LIFESTYLE
More than $7 million worth of sales have been recorded within the final stage of developer Halcyon’s Sunshine Coast project.
Project director Chris Carley said the latest and final stage at Halcyon Lakeside, known as Elevation, was fast-tracked due to demand.
He said more than half of the release had sold to Sunshine Coast and Brisbane retirees, with buyers snapping up 14 of the 22 sites.
“Elevation represents the final opportunity for buyers to secure their spot in the spectacular resort-style community which has translated to quick sales,” Mr Carley said.
Adam and Irene Brunner were among the buyers, after 10 years of maintaining a 6000sq m property in Buderim.
Mr Brunner said he and his wife wanted to make the downsizing move on their own terms and looked for something to fill the void left after a 45-year career as a civil engineer.
“It’s important to me to have relationships and activities as I get used to this new lifestyle, and I have been able to find that and more at Halcyon Lakeside,” he said.
“Irene and I are mindful of how important it is to maintain physical health and mental wellbeing, so we wanted to be somewhere
with like-minded people, that still live healthy and active lives and have a positive outlook, regardless of their age.
“We will definitely be utilising the gym to maintain the fitness that comes with owning a large property that required plenty of physical labour,’’ he said.
Mr Brunner intends to use the metal and woodwork shops to keep his brain active, while Mrs Brunner, a keen clay sculptor, will use the creative arts precinct to keep her artistic skills alive.
Mrs Brunner said she was looking forward to getting involved in the community garden.
