Coming home to community living
Years after moving from an over 50s lifestyle community, Carol Wilson is looking forward to moving into a new home at Stockland’s Halcyon Rise in Logan Reserve (QLD).
“It feels as if I’m coming home,” Carol said. “I’ve already made some lovely friends at some of the meet and greets and I think I will fit in really well.”
Carol lived at Halcyon Waters on the Gold Coast with her late husband Barry before moving to an apartment in Wynnum, a bayside suburb of Brisbane.
She said she was looking forward to having her own freestanding home and in an area which is not as built up as her current suburban neighbourhood.
“I think country life will suit me fine,” Carol said. “I can’t wait to be far from the madding crowd, away from the pollution.
“It will be nice to have a peaceful and tranquil life and I can’t wait to have my own rubbish bin, not a chute.”
Carol said she was also looking forward to getting involved in lots of community activities and planned to continue her exercise routine.
“When my husband died his last words to me were ‘keep up the exercise’,” she said. “I’m a swimmer so I plan to make good use of the pool.”
The community facilities at Halcyon Rise are under construction and are due to be completed this year.
Homeowners will be free to explore, enjoy and connect within the community’s lifestyle facilities that are perched above the acres of open space.
The main recreation and lifestyle facility is called The Homestead and is perched above the acres of open space and will have spectacular views of rolling hills and the treeline of Logan River.
The Homestead will include a bar, kitchen, private dining room, dance floor, games room, gym, library, massage and treatment rooms, salon, 25m heated resort pool, outdoor showers, in-pool lounges and , floodlit pickleball courts and floodlit bowling green, covered BBQ pavilion and a firepit.
