Ian and Roz didn't want to move too far away so Queens Lake was the perfect decision and fit for them.

Before moving to Queens Lake, Ian and Roz lived in a two-level home only 10 minutes away and were starting to consider moving to a retirement community.  

They initially tried to start the process in 2009 by putting their house on the market, but it didn’t sell. Ifelt like a sign that it wasn’t the right timeso we stayed put for the time being.  They remained conscious of not missing the boat and waiting until they were too old, knowing they wanted to make the most of village life 

Then eight years ago, another sign! “Someone knocked on the door and offered to buy our home. The time was now right!”  

Having lived locally for 18 years, Ian and Roz had wonderful connections to the area and didn’t want to move too far. Queens Lake ticked everything off the list for them.  

“We didn’t look at any other villages. Once we looked at Queens Lake, we liked it straight away. The sense of security and the great open spaces.  As soon as they saw their three-bedroom, open plan unit on the ground floor, they were sold! 

They knew no-one in the village, but this didn’t matter at all.  The village environment encourages people to socialise, especially those on their own. “Living in the village, you don’t have to rely on family and friends.  There are staff on hand to assist which makes you feel independent. There is no time to sit idly by - you are too busy having fun!   

Their experience buying with Stockland has been very positive and they know they will stay with Stockland at Port Macquarie if they ever require a higher level of care. 

“We just love where we live, and like our friends always say, we have a million-dollar view!”
