There is no doubt that recent world events have caused us to reflect on our future. This particularly applies to the older Australians and key aspects of their life such as: where they want to live; why they want to live there; things to do; community; and, importantly, value for money. There might perhaps be more pandemics, so now is a good time to incorporate that possibility into our decision process. The bottom line is that people of all ages just want to be happy, want to have fun, want the companionship of others and to feel safe and secure. Most importantly, they want to stay healthy.
According to Mark Skelsey, of the national retirement site, Downsizing, he was already seeing the trend of people moving away from the capital cities to regional areas. Here, people can enjoy a relaxed way of life in a clean atmosphere, a real sense of community and, in many cases, far better affordability.
When you look at all the factors, there is no doubt that charming Braidwood, between Canberra and Batemans Bay, ticks all the boxes. That is why this unique town, filled with boutique cafes and speciality shops, arts and crafts, golf, so much to do, and a wonderful community in a beautiful rural country atmosphere, is now being touted as the best location in Australia to retire. Add to that mixture the Summerfield Estate with its affordable luxury, spacious three-bed, two-bath, two-car designer homes. along with key facilities already built – club house, indoor heated pool, and arts and crafts – you have a delightful cocktail for living life to the full. It should also be noted that a brand new $50 million public hospital is just being completed beside Summerfield. With the other three sides being heritage listed countryside never to be build out, Summerfield is a place where you can thrive.
Finally, the all-important ‘value’. At half of the price of Sydney and two-thirds of Canberra, these Summerfield luxury homes at less than $600,000 offer extraordinary value. Add to that that all these homes are freehold with no exit fees, making Braidwood and Summerfield a ‘no brainer’ as a place to live.
