RE­TIR­ING TO AC­TIVE LIFE­STYLE

The Courier-Mail - Home - - LOOKING FORWARD - EMILY BLACK

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.
