Connectivity and community draw downsizers to Morisset


The Morisset region has become a sought after location for seniors looking for a lifestyle change.

Nestled in the gateway to the Hunter Valley, on the shores of Lake Macquarie and just one hour drive north from Sydney, the region has become a destination of choice for many seniors moving away from the city to free up the equity in their old home.

Leading creators of land lease communities, Ingenia Lifestyle has delivered a new benchmark in affordable yet stylish living for Morisset, attracting many downsizers to the region who are seeking to maximise their active lifestyle.

To celebrate the success of the community and showcase its new community clubhouse, Ingenia Lifestyle The Grange is opening its doors to locals looking to downsize, hosting an Open Day on Saturday 10 March from 10am – 2pm.

Guests are invited to sit back and enjoy a soulful Saturday with entertainment from a Beatles tribute band and a delicious selection of local food trucks.

When Ingenia Lifestyle residents Barrie and Norma Ross decided to downsize from their home in Sydney, they didn’t realise how much they would love the community and their new lifestyle.

“After living in Sydney for most of our lives, we wanted to get out of the city for a more relaxing lifestyle. Living at The Grange gives us the option of enjoying the serenity but still being close enough to important amenities and just a 90 minute train ride to Sydney if we do want to head in,” Mr Ross said.

“If anyone is considering a move to The Grange, come in and really experience the community life, social events and location for yourself – you’ll never want to leave.”

Ingenia Lifestyle Project Sales Manager Jason Webb said residents have the best of both worlds in Morisset, with the amenities of Lake Macquarie at their doorstep combined with the serenity of the suburbs.

“Downsizers have snapped up more than 70 per cent of stage one with the second stage launching at this weekend’s Open Day as the demand for over 55s housing and age-appropriate living requirements skyrockets,” Mr Webb said.

“Our regional and coastal communities are benefitting greatly from Sydney’s peak property market, with the enquiry levels from Sydney couples increasing over the past few months.”
