Aviva Communities has commenced work on what will be a ground breaking residential community for people over 50 at Officer.
Managing Director of Aviva Communities Todd Strathdee said the $55million project is all about reinventing retirement and creating a community that is more suited to a young-spirited retiree.
“The innovative design of the community and what we are able to offer our homeowners is very different to other options in the market,“ Todd said.
Designed by award winning Wolveridge Architects, the homes and clubhouse reflect modern housing styles that are based on the history Officer and embody design practices that optimise liveability for homeowners.
“All living spaces are oriented to the north and achieve a minimum six star energy rating,“ said Todd.
“Genuine master-planning means that every home has private open spaces that are achieved without tracts of imposing fences.“
All homes at Aviva Officer come with access to a stunning clubhouse known as The Lodge. The Lodge design reflects the brick kilns and timber mills that were the foundations of enterprise in Officer. With statuesque brick chimneys punctuating stunning timber facades, The Lodge will be home to a range of amenities that support an active social and physical life.
Whilst the community is outstanding in its design credentials, affordability was one of the most important considerations in its creation.
“People living in retirement have fixed incomes and worry about how far their money will go. We have invested a lot of time in developing ways to provide our homeowners with financial certainty and a greater level of control over their cost of living,“ explained Todd.
“At Aviva Communities Officer we are able to offer our homeowners financial peace of mind by rethinking the traditional way these communities work. One example of this is managing electricity costs through a market-leading energy system. We didn’t want out residents to be scrimping on the heater in winter and A/C in summer, so we did something about that. We are able to offer our residents energy in a way that provides certainty and protects them against the ever-increasing electricity price hikes.“
Located on McMullen Road, Aviva Communities Officer is within walking distance of the future planned Officer Town Centre and has the added benefit of being adjacent to the Gum Scrub Creek Nature Reserve.
Aviva Officer will be launched in mid 2019. To register your interest and to take advantage of pre-release purchase benefits call 1800 961 585 or register on https://www.avivacommunities.com.au
