High demand: 12 sought-after retirement villas go on the market on Central Coast

Australia’s property boom, along with the Central Coast being a highly desirable location, is driving demand for local retirement villas.

RetireAustralia expects the release of 12 retirement villas at Forresters Beach will sell fast with a waitlist already growing.

RetireAustralia’s CEO Brett Robinson said there were 25 people already on the waitlist and two deposits had been secured.

“The property boom most certainly will play a key factor in the overall sell, but what we have seen in the past and at this present moment is the villas at Forresters Beach are incredibly popular; we’re consistently getting enquiries about this village,” Mr Robinson said.

Mr Robinson said the last release of new villas was in 2017 when 158 villas sold within 24 months – an average of 6 – 7 villas each month. There has been a steady interest in this village, with over 175 enquiries in the past 12 months. However, only 15 villas have been available for sale in the past three years.

“The enquiries we are getting about Forresters Beach reflects the standard of services and amenities available at the village which is magnificently set around a network of lakes.

“Our Home Care Services for instance, offers residents a number of opportunities including household chores, meal preparation, showering, dressing and medication support to name a few. It’s the perfect setting for residents to live life on their terms.”

The latest, and second last, release of 12 premium villas at Forresters Beach is worth $10 million.

When the project is complete, the retirement village will cater for 450 residents.

Mr Robinson said it was a proud moment to see the project’s evolution come to fruition following a 20-year period.

“It’s really exciting to see the village’s growth after the first Development Approval was granted back in 2002.”

Mr Robinson said the Forresters Beach villas, which ranged in price between $550,000 and $950,000, were also favourable because of its ‘beautiful neighbourhood character’.

“No two villas are the same and each one is beautifully fitted; it’s the simplicity of the design that makes it really attractive to residents.

“The best part is that the village is close to beaches, boutique shopping, charming cafes and is just a short walk to Wyrrabalong National Park’s coastal trails and lookout with sweeping views.”
