Life begins at Halcyon

Life begins at 50

Are you sick and tired of that never-ending maintenance list?

11 December 2017 | by Halcyon

Do you have that never-ending list of chores and upkeep that you need to get to.. maybe it’s a fresh coat of paint for the bedroom, or fixing that crack you have seen in the brickwork? All those things that come with staying in your family home longer.

Have you ever considered downsizing or shifting homes to something new and lower maintenance? A Halcyon over 50’s lifestyle community is one option that provides a brand new, low maintenance home that will free up your time to enjoy the great things in life! I mean I even heard someone say that downsizing is the key ‘happiness’.

The multiple benefits of downsizing provide a compelling list of reasons to reduce the hassles associated with living in a large home.

In those earlier years, a big house made sense, with lots of bedrooms, a large backyard and swimming pool so the kids could play and have heaps of extra room for entertaining friends and family. But as you reach the ‘empty nester’ phase and the kids have moved out, thoughts turn to downsizing, de-cluttering and the future.

Firstly it’s the financial rewards that prove so attractive to downsizers including freeing up equity, lower running costs, rates and insurance premiums.  Plus a large home can be stressful, due to the constant demands of cleaning, upkeep and maintenance.

Downsizing can be the first step to a minimal, stress-free and streamlined lifestyle. Not surprisingly, reducing the daily chores and maintenance associated with living in a large home frees up more time for leisure activities, spending time with family, go travelling or do whatever your heart desires.

So the decision has been made… to downsize, but to what?

Choices abound for baby boomers that are looking to downsize. Should it be a smaller home, an apartment, a duplex or something else? Us here at Halcyon think the answer lies within our lifestyle model that is proving to be particularly attractive to Australian over 50’s.

The core of our concept appeals directly to downsizers who still want the privacy of their own home but wish to live more cost effectively, spend less time on maintenance and free up time for lifestyle opportunities.

Our gated over 50’s communities offer energy efficient, architect designed homes that are all about downsizing without cutting corners. The modern open-plan homes are easy to maintain, great for entertaining and feature the latest in green building technology.

With more time for the good things in life, Halcyon communities also include an extensive list of recreational facilities and an exclusive Recreation Club so home owners can play sport, keep fit or socialise, all of these things are at your fingertips behind the gates of your new home.

Low maintenance homes, gated security, CCTV cameras and on-site caravan and boat storage means Halcyon’s downsizing baby boomers can also pursue the dream of travel and new adventures. In fact, many often spend more time away from home than at home, safe in the knowledge that someone is keeping an eye on things while they are away.

We often hear people comment that this lifestyle option didn't even occur to them! If you’re one of those people, now that you do know, what’s to stop you from having a deeper look at how you can downsize to an even more fabulous life!

Happy house hunting!
