Residents Thrilled as New Community Clubhouse Unveiled

More than 90 people joined the State Member for Oxley, Ms Melinda Pavey and Mayor of Kempsey, Cr Liz Campbell, to celebrate the opening of Ingenia Lifestyle South West Rocks’ brand new community clubhouse this month.

The brand new clubhouse features a modern open plan design with expansive wrap around deck, alfresco entertainment areas, large kitchen, social activities space, lounge with fireplace and library and will become a social hub for resident events and gatherings which is all designed to encourage a balanced, social and active lifestyle for residents.

Performing her official dignitary duties on the day Ms Pavey was proud to present the plaque saying she loves nothing more than to spend her weekends in South West Rocks.

“To have affordable housing that compliments South West Rocks’ lifestyle, downsizers now have more choice, control and flexibility.

“When you’ve worked hard all your life and contributed to this state, with real community members contributing to this region, it’s this lifestyle that you’re able to have now to help reflect on the past, and it’s lovely to be able to have you choose to stay here in South West Rocks,” Ms Pavey said.

Recognising the valuable ongoing support provided to the local community, Cr Liz Campbell thanked Ingenia Lifestyle for their hard work and investment in building the community clubhouse.

“It’s been two years since I’ve visited here and what Ingenia has created in this time makes it a more attractive place to retire and downsize to.

“We are so lucky in the Macleay to have this investment, as facilities such as these can only attract more seniors looking for a sea-change to come to our valley. We all know that South West Rocks is home to some of the most spectacular beaches and coastline in Australia, but we also need great facilities that promote a healthy and active lifestyle if we are to encourage more people to move to the Macleay.

“The new community clubhouse will be an asset to this community for many years to come. Ingenia Lifestyle has created quality facilities for socialising with like-minded people that only enhances the wonderful living centre you provide to local residents,” Cr Campbell said.

Ingenia Lifestyle South West Rocks’ Sales Manager Wendy Hobson said residents were thrilled with the new community facilities, which will encourage the community to come together and foster a sense of belonging.

“The nautical themed interior design of the clubhouse draws on the beautiful forest-fringed beaches nearby and provides a calm and inviting space for residents to enjoy,” Ms Hobson said.

“Adding to the social events calendar and Ingenia Care wellbeing program, we’ve now incorporated several resident run activities such as book club, ukulele classes, craft & mah-jong for the residents to make the most of our brand new facilities.

“The quality of our homes and communal facilities is always a pleasant surprise to downsizers when they come to visit our community for the first time, and I’m sure these new facilities will not disappoint,” she said.

Ingenia Lifestyle South West Rocks’ affordable and lifestyle focused community offers residents the opportunity to live in a brand new home in a land lease community where you own the home and lease the land. Brand new homes selling quickly, from just $239,000.
