Sunshine Coast locals come “home” to B by Halcyon

September 06, 2020

When longtime Mountain Creek residents Sue and Gary Hadenham listed their home for sale in the height of COVID-19, little did they know just how fast it would be snapped up.

“It had literally gone on realestate. and our agent called to ask if someone could come and inspect, not tomorrow but today,” Sue said.

“Within two hours, the deal was done.” Sue said the buyers originally wanted a two-week settlement but ended up agreeing on three weeks. “It was actually great as it meant we had to get organised very quickly, there was certainly no mucking around.

"Keen golfers, Sue and Gary had made the decision to move into an over 50s community as the maintenance on their large home had become a chore. “I didn’t want to move, I loved our home and I’d said I was never leaving,” Sue said.

“But it was on 1000m2 and even though we’d done a massive renovation 15 years ago, everything was looking like it needed updating."

After visiting a competitor, the pair drove into Whites Road to take a look at B by Halcyon, which Sue said took her breath away and she said to Gary: “I’m home.”

The active couple are looking forward to being able to participate in all of the health and wellness activities on offer, including the gym, pools and yoga lawn.

“I am really excited about the Creative Arts Pavilion as I’m a botanical artist and I run quite a few workshops and classes.”

“To have this beautiful new facility to enjoy is just wonderful.”

The countdown is on for the Hadenhams to move into their new home at B by Halcyon later this month.

“We’re excited, but it’s a bit daunting as we are the first group into the community,” Sue said.

“There are a lot of people from the Buderim area moving into the community, so there will be people that we know.”
