If you’re over 55 and weighing up your retirement options, there’s a lot to consider.
Will you sell the family home and downsize? And if you do, will you move somewhere picturesque and quiet so you can enjoy a relaxing lifestyle?
If this sounds appealing, Village Lifestyle Park in Traralgon could be the answer. For just $225,000 (at the time of writing) you can purchase a house and land package, featuring a brand new, quality home built to order on your own private fenced block.
The Rawson boasts a bright and airy open plan living area. The lounge is situated at the front of the house and features large windows that let plenty of natural light in. The meals area is central, and has the option of a reverse-cycle split-system heating and cooling unit to keep the indoor temperature just right.
The kitchen is set at the back, overlooking the living area, which allows for plenty of conversation while meals are being prepared. It boasts a large corner pantry, plus ample cupboard and bench space, so the cook in the house will have plenty of room to create their favourite cuisine. Large sliding doors provide direct access to the back decking, which is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cuppa or relax with a good book.
There are two generous sized bedrooms, and both feature built-in robes. And with a bedroom situated at either end of the house you can also choose your outlook. Having a second bedroom means you’ll have room for friends and family to stay, or extra space for an office or hobby room.
Bathroom and Laundry
The bathroom is fully tiled and features quality fittings throughout. The large shower and neutral tones add class to the already stylish design. Conveniently located between the two bedrooms, there is also a second, separate toilet next-door. The laundry is a good size and includes extra storage space and outside access.
To match the character of your home to your own personal taste, you can choose either the Coastal façade (as shown here) or the Traditional. The front entry has a small, covered deck to protect you from the elements while you look for your keys, plus, you can also make your way inside via the outside deck which has stairs that lead directly to the carport. The large carport is spacious and the concrete driveway and path make access easy, and keep everything neat.
Outside, the covered deck is an ideal place to relax or entertain. The Colorbond fencing provides privacy and looks great, plus you can also include a Colorbond lock-up shed to store all your outdoor tools and gadgets.
Come and See for Yourself
For those who decide to move when they retire it’s a big adjustment. When you relocate to a retirement community, your neighbours have all had a similar experience, which makes adapting to the change that little bit easier. Having a brand new, affordable, low-maintenance home is also a big plus – and the Rawson ticks all the boxes.
For $225,000 (at the time of writing) you can purchase the Rawson package and retire in comfort, in the beautiful Latrobe Valley. So, if you’re over 55, and are looking for value and a quality new home in a great location, book a tour and come and see for yourself.
