Popular Latitude One community now complete

Proving why the Port Stephens region is one of the top 10 regional growth areas, Ingenia Lifestyle’s over 55’s community, Latitude One, recently poured the final slab on its last home.

Construction began on the 270-home community back in late-2017 and, four years on, has become a successful and sought-after place to live.

Ingenia Lifestyle General Sales Manager Kate Melrose said the community – now home to nearly 400 residents – had been a success from day one. “We’re thrilled to see one of our first premium Star Collection communities reach completion and become well-established in the region,” said Ms Melrose.

Set upon 29.2 hectares, downsizers have flocked to Latitude One, with its first release selling out in a matter of days and the majority of its second release fully reserved by eager buyers shortly thereafter.

Port Stephens’ ideal coastal location has made it one of the best residential opportunities[1] as Aussies continue to drive up demand for regional homes.

“Many of our residents move to Latitude One from within a 20km of the area, showing that people want to live out the best years of their lives locally − that’s a real testament to the location and the wider community,” Ms Melrose said.

“Locals want to stay in the area and embrace the coastal lifestyle so it’s important that they have retirement living options that meets their needs as they start to wind down their working life and kickstart a life of ease and leisure.

“A recent survey of Ingenia communities across Australia showed that staying independent, having a low maintenance home, and physical and financial security were the key influencing factors for downsizers – that’s what residents get here at Latitude One.”

The success of Latitude One and the continuing popularity of regional and coastal areas has Ingenia Communities setting its sights on new greenfield sites in New South Wales to meet the demand of downsizers across the region.
