Aviva Communities Officer is a community created especially for people aged over 55.

“When we started designing this community we threw away convention and started from scratch” said Managing Director of Aviva Communities Todd Strathdee.

“We didn’t want to follow traditional approaches where the old cottage or villa was the dominant housing form. We are thrilled with the end result which has seen the creation of modern energy efficient

homes and an outstanding contemporary clubhouse that is more reflective of a younger spirited retiree.

“For years the focus has been on downsizing where people move from the old oversized family home into smaller more manageable dwellings. That’s not how we see it. At Aviva Communities Officer we believe the relocation process is more about right-sizing life where people simply want smarter, intelligently designed homes that suit a new life-stage and the activities that accompany it.“

Central to the success of the community are the masterplanned architect designed homes that are unrivalled in the over 55 landscape in Melbourne.

Each home comprises a modern facade that blends organically with the neighbouring homes to maximise privacy and create eye-catching streetscapes.

Every home is also oriented to take advantage of a northern living aspect. Not only does this reduce the need for artificial heating and cooling, but it provides homeowners with the most direct sunlight during the day, especially in winter when the sun is at its lowest.

“All homes achieve a minimum 6-star energy rating created not only from the orientation of the home, but the insulation of the home’s walls, floor and roof spaces”.

Inside the home there is a sense of spaciousness created by 2.7m ceilings, integrated storage solutions and strategic window placement.

Improving the design outcomes of the community is the use of planting and fencing solutions to separate dwellings and create privacy in the home’s living areas and outdoor zones. No expansive tracts of confining metal fencing are used in the community.

Inside the homes are a range of inclusions such as stone benchtops, stainless steel kitchen appliances, engineered timber floors, tiles and carpets, ducted heating and cooling, window furnishings and all the extras that make moving in simple.

All homes in the community are within walking distance of the expansive Gum Scrub Creek Nature Reserve and The Lodge, a private clubhouse for Aviva Officer homeowners.
