Why A New Build Is Perfect For Retirement Living

Australia’s population is aging. Our baby-boomers are heading in to their golden years and incredible medical advances mean that we’re all living longer. So, many members of our ageing population (and their children) are left wondering – where to from here? In today’s blog we offer our best advice – retire to a brand new build! Why is this a greater option than an aged care facility? Let’s explore!

Choice In Design

While many aged-care facilities and retirement villages offer impressive amenities and lifestyle options, there’s little to no choice in the design of the space you’ll be living in day-to-day. In a new build, there’s all of this and more! You have the freedom to select from a wide range of beautifully designed floorplans AND facades. From expansive and elegant designs like the Austin, to contemporary designs that favour visitors like the New York, you’ll be spoiled for choice in your spacious retirement home. As an added bonus, all Aston Homes designs are single level, making for easy access for all levels of physical ability.

Easy Care Lifestyle

There are a number of perks that come with building a brand new single level home. As well as allowing greater freedom of movement and having new appliances, you have the ability to set up your home up to suit your individual needs from the get go.  A well planned low maintenance garden requires little input, meaning you can enjoy your sunset spritz on the alfresco without getting your hands dirty!

Proximity to Necessary Amenities

Having a range of medical facilities close to home is an important consideration for families at later life stages. There’s a range of excellent hospitals, general practitioners, pharmacies and health centres in Melbourne’s north and west. You can find helpful information on local hospitals here, general practitioners here and a variety of support services here.

Fantastic Social Opportunities 

Older generations 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 local libraries, social clubs (like Probus) and regular community events to take advantage of, such as Aurora Estate’s Neighbour Day. 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!

Transport needn’t be an issue with Westbrook Estate’s modern transport hub providing residents direct train access to Melbourne and Geelong, as well as a major bus interchange and taxi rank.
