With homes in Sydney among the most expensive in the developed world, baby boomers living in the city’s west do not need to compromise when looking to downsize into a smaller home.
Active Lifestyle Estates Stoney Creek in Marsden Park is an innovative senior’s lifestyle community offering affordable and flexible living options that appeal to many over 55s.
Brand new homes with three bedrooms are selling from $375,000, almost half the median house price in Blacktown.
Stoney Creek resident, Anne Fidler and her husband downsized earlier this year from a large two-storey, five bed, three bathroom home in western Sydney, only 15 minutes away from Stoney Creek.
“We just felt the family house was too big for the two of us and really wanted to downsize in the same area.
“We chose Active Lifestyle Estates Stoney Creek as the community is for our age group, and we didn’t have to pay stamp duty!
“Initially I choose a two bedroom home, but at the last minute I changed my mind and decided the three bedroom would be better; the Active Lifestyle Estates team were very accommodating with us.
“We now have a three bedroom home here and although we have downsized we still have plenty of room and it is just great. We are very happy with the size of our place,” Anne said.
Project Sales Manager Rachel Pullicino said enquires for the new three bedroom floor plan had increased substantially.
“The extra room provides the opportunity to downsize without compromising on space or location.
“Residents like that they are able to retain ownership of a home, while continuing to live in the same or nearby suburb, close to friends and support networks and have that extra space.
“They also love the resort-style feel and to complete that, residents are eagerly awaiting the new community clubhouse later this year with a brand new pool and gym, BBQ and alfresco dining on the deck,” Rachel said.
The new clubhouse, Stoney Creek Estates, will play an important role in bringing residents together to encourage connectedness in the community.
This was a major factor that drew Anne to the community as her husband is retired, while she works full time.
“Everyone is very friendly and there is already a great sense of community so most of us just socialise with each other and at each other’s places. I still work five days a week but my husband is retired and really enjoys socialising with the others during the week when I am at work,” Anne said.
Homes are selling from $259,000 and brand new from $295,000.
