Why living at Lakeside Lara means more time for you: and six ways to spend it!

Time is arguably our most valuable resource. So if you had more of it, how would you spend it? Low-maintenance homes at Lakeside Lara are designed to reduce the stresses of upkeep and the overwhelm of a large property, and our community has been created with everything you need on your doorstep. Moving to Lakeside Lara means more time for you, so we’ve come up with six suggestions on how to use it wisely!

1. More time for holidays

Have you been dreaming about exploring our vast Australian landscape in a caravan? Or perhaps jetting off for an overseas adventure? At Lakeside Lara you’ll spend less time on home maintenance, and more time on adventures – especially because when you head off to explore, you can simply lock up and leave, knowing your home is safe in a secure community surrounded by like-minded people.

2. More time for family and friends

With neighbours destined to become friends, and beautiful community spaces to enjoy at your leisure, Lakeside Lara provides more opportunities to spend time with family and friends. Have the grandkids over for a visit and take them out to explore the walking paths and beautiful gardens, or enjoy scheduled Lakeside Lara activities like school holiday movie days. Plus there’s always someone close by to enjoy an event or activity with – whether it’s happy hour drinks, a seated yoga class, or a cuppa and a book by the fireplace.

“You sometimes just need somebody with you instead of always going to things on your own. And if you feel like a bit of company, there’s plenty here.” Carole, Ingenia Lifestyle resident.

3. More time for hobbies

There’s never been a better time than now to reconnect to your creativity. At Lakeside Lara our brand new community garden and workshed are perfect for green thumbs and tinkerers, and our art studio means you can explore your favourite mediums (or try something new for the first time!). We also have plenty of spaces to craft, knit or crochet, dedicated sports facilities like our golf simulator and bowling green plus regular events where you can upskill or try new things alongside your neighbours.

4. More time for exploring

Located within the Greater Geelong region, Lakeside Lara is a place that’s as surprising as it is beautiful. From fancy meals at wineries, to long walks on the beach, a birdie on the local links, or just a wander through the local shops, having everything you need closeby is a great opportunity to explore in your free time.

5. More time for wellbeing

Our resort-style facilities have been designed with your wellbeing in mind. From workouts at the gym and vigorous laps in the pool to a relaxing spa; from perfecting your swing on our brand-new golf simulator to connecting with friends in our shared community spaces, your wellbeing needs can be met on your doorstep. Whether it’s a solo sporting pursuit or a social connection that most boosts your wellbeing, there’s something for everyone at Lakeside Lara.

6. More time for relaxation

“Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” – Marthe Troly-Curtin

You don’t need to be busy all the time, so if you’ve got more freedom in your schedule, having your own private oasis within Lakeside Lara means you’ve got somewhere to wind down, enjoy the day, read a book, or just potter. Our spacious light-filled homes make relaxing at home a pleasure, and your private garden means you’ve got the option of unwinding indoors or outdoors at any time.

Time is a precious gift at every stage in life. So as you think about your next chapter, why not think about the things you love most to spend time on?

With more time for fun, and more time for belonging, we look forward to spending time together at Lakeside Lara.
