The Perfect Lifestyle Change For An Empty-Nester

When it comes time for your not-so-little ones to pack up and leave the nest, you may find yourself with a little extra freedom to consider a lifestyle change. In today’s blog, we highlight the many advantages of a brand new build for empty-nesters – offering all the comforts you want, with space to entertain. This approach to purchasing property could be perfect for your next adventure!

Low maintenance.

All homes require an investment of elbow grease and financial input to keep in ship-shape as they age. That said, in a brand new build – everything is perfectly pristine so you know that you have a number of years before you will need to start repairing and replacing. When setting up a new home, you can also take advantage of latest technology and best practice to set up the lifestyle you are chasing. Low maintenance gardens can be established at the start to require little or no assistance from you, meaning you can enjoy your sunset spritz on the alfresco all during summer without getting your hands dirty.

First floor living

There are a number of perks that come with building a brand new, single level home. As well as allowing for freedom of movement at any age, maintenance is far simpler across a single storey. In a single level home, you’re able to access all areas of the property without huffing and puffing or excess pressure on aging joints to get up the stairs with the vacuum! There are so many additional benefits to a single-level home. You can read more on the Aston Homes blog.

Energy saving.

If energy-efficiency is at the top of your list when considering a new home, you’re not alone! Many empty-nesters are looking for a home that has the 6-Star Energy Standard tick. Building a new home with this in mind will ensure you are taking advantage of the latest innovation in energy efficiency to slash your heating and cooling costs and as an added bonus is better for the environment!


Empty-nesters who choose to build in Melbourne’s outer suburbs will discover that there are so many wonderful social activities available all year round. There are sporting clubs to join, local libraries, great retail opportunities as well as regular community picnics and events to attend with friends and social groups of all ages. Whether you build in an established or new build community across Melbourne’s north and west, you will be in the perfect postcode for getting out and about!
