Halcyon Rise celebrates settlement of 150th home
At the end of May, Stockland’s Halcyon Rise settled its 150th home, when Donna and Per Ingvorsen moved into the community designed for over 50s at Logan Reserve.
The couple both had their own homes before marrying five years ago which they’ve sold and are now happily settled, mortgage-free, in a new place of their own.
In her mid-50s, Donna is still working as a teacher’s aide and Per, in his early 60s, works full-time as a photocopier technician.
While looking for a house and land, they came across the Halcyon Rise community. They kept returning and by their third visit, realised the lifestyle community had everything they were looking for.
“I think our friends thought we had moved into a retirement village but it's more like a resort,” Donna says.
“We have them over to visit and they can’t believe it!”
“We are getting to know the neighbours, we’ve tried our hand at pickleball and we’ve taken a dip in the spa. We are regulars at happy hour and look forward to going to the cinema soon. Plus we can’t wait for the weather to warm up so we can relax by the pool with a cool drink.
“We now have our caravan stored in a designated location on-site and can bring it down to the house a day or two ahead of our trips to load it up. It’s so convenient.”
Donna has adult triplets who all live in south-east Queensland and Per’s four adult children also live close by in the Logan area.
“Getting the dogs settled into their new home was a bit tricky but we are enjoying all the lovely places to walk them,” says Donna.
Fronting the Logan River and framed by gently rolling hills, the secure gated community offers an idyllic, private and energised lifestyle.
Remaining true to the region’s rich agricultural heritage, Halcyon Rise is thoughtfully designed with spacious homes and unique sporting and leisure facilities rising above the community’s vast open spaces and riverfront parkland.
