Three great Victorian locations

Melbourne’s northern suburbs are surrounded by natural beauty whilst still being close to a plethora of amenity and transport options. Our new community in Beveridge, Ingenia Lifestyle Springside, is just 50 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD with the Hume Freeway close by connecting you to the city and anywhere else you want to go. Ideally located next door to Mandalay Golf Course and a short drive from Merrifield, Craigieburn and Wallan, where there are plenty of shopping options, health services, restaurants and sports facilities.

Victoria’s second largest city, the City of Greater Geelong, has plenty to offer downsizers who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city without moving to a remote location. Greater Geelong is 75 km from Melbourne and while a large and populous city, it’s home to many quiet, rural localities, perfect for a relaxed retirement in a friendly community.  

Ingenia Lifestyle currently has a thriving community in the Greater Geelong area, Ingenia Lifestyle Lakeside Lara, situated in the peaceful rural town with shops and amenities nearby. Our residents enjoy all the benefits of living in a safe and secure community environment just 20 minutes from Geelong and 40 minutes from the Melbourne CBD.

The Ballarat region of Victoria continues to prosper with the new suburb of Lucas just 7km from the CBD. Our Ingenia Lifestyle Parkside Lucas community is located close to the central park precinct of the Lucas master planned suburb.

What is the Ingenia lifestyle like?

When you join an Ingenia Lifestyle community you’re joining like-minded friends who, like you, understand the importance of setting your own pace and living retirement life on your own terms. You’ll enjoy:

  • Professional on-site management
  • Access to exclusive resort-style facilities
  • A range of stylish, low-maintenance home designs to choose from

The Ingenia lifestyle is whatever you choose it to be. Whether it’s taking advantage of the secure nature of our communities to lock up and leave on the trip of a lifetime, or relaxing in your modern, easy-to-manage home and benefiting from programs and events designed to keep you active, you’ll find a life that’s perfect for you.

The smart choice...

Downsize and enjoy greater financial confidence

As a senior Australian, feeling financially confident is likely something that’s very important to you. By downsizing to one of Ingenia Lifestyle’s communities you’ll enjoy greater financial confidence. You’ll own your own your low-maintenance home and lease, rather than buy, the land. This means you won’t pay:

  • Stamp duty or council rates
  • Deferred management or exit fees
  • Strata or community levies or charges

What’s more, unlike retirement villages where exiting can be expensive, you won’t have to return your unit to its original condition or split your capital gains with the operator — 100% of any capital growth made on your home is yours. When you’re ready to downsize and live life at your own pace and on your terms, arrange a tour of one of our communities in Victoria.
