"We live with friendly and likeminded neighbours in our gated community, and the lifestyle is as social or private as you want it to be." - James & Marlene

"We are James & Marlene Hastings, who purchased 12 months ago at Aspire, which is an innovative concept, and a one off in WA, designed and built by Stockland. 

We are both active 73 year olds and have been reviewing our future options after deciding to downsize. Then along comes Aspire which ticked all the boxes for us. We now have a beautiful home with 203sqm of living on a 302sqm block. The home is double brick with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms in an open plan design, with a double garage, family, meals and modern kitchen. 

Another major feature is the security that is offered to the development. It is totally secure with electronic entry gates and passcode keypads on all access gates, a swipe card for the clubroom and pool, and full village CCTV. It allows for peace of mind security when you are away, just lock and leave. It is a high-quality build, in which we own both house and land in a strata arrangement with flexibility to sell or bequeath in the future – without any retention fees.

We have a fantastic clubroom fitted out with a pool, gym, billiards room, library, alfresco patio, craft room, conference room and theatre, all adjoining the main function hall. We live with friendly and likeminded neighbours in our gated community, and the lifestyle is as social or private as you want it to be.

Our lifestyle has moved to a new dimension in retirement living and are both so happy with our home, our life and our decision to be part of the Aspire community. In all, 157 homes are planned for our community in staged development and the demand and sales are positively high for each release. The village will be sold out within another 18 months.

The housing development product is unique in WA, is a credit to Stockland in vision, design and delivery of a superb development of our current 100 or so village neighbours. It is reassuring that not one person/s has had doubts in their decision to purchase, and none have re-sold which is a testimony to what has been created here.

Well done to Stockland, it’s our absolute pleasure to be part of this community and thank you for your vision to create a lifestyle for over 55s". - James & Marlene Hastings
