Apartment living on the rise

As more and more Australians embrace apartment living, many retirees are beginning to follow suit.

The Rise at Wood Glen - Apartment living on the rise - RetireAustralia

‘Vertical’ villages–where residents live in apartments rather than freestanding homes but enjoy all the same benefits–are growing in popularity, particularly in metropolitan areas.

RetireAustralia is bringing this unique style of living to the coast, building a luxury vertical village at Wood Glen Retirement Village in addition to its 94 existing villas.

Sales Manager Glenn Attenborough says The Rise at Wood Glen is an exciting new offering for both RetireAustralia and the Central Coast.

“Our Central Coast villages have been in operation for more than 30 years and they are renowned for their new and refurbished independent living villas,” he said.

“For the first time, we’re expanding by adding luxury apartments.

“These apartments will be integrated into the existing village and offer residents access to its elegant community facilities, as well as being close to shopping and professional services and just a short drive to Terrigal Beach.”

Apartments at The Rise will have two or three bedrooms, two bathrooms, an open plan kitchen, living and dining area and a private terrace with sweeping bushland views.

Residents can expect exceptional quality throughout, from floor-to-ceiling windows to European appliances and high-end fittings and fixtures.

“The fit-outs will be of an excellent standard with luxury kitchens and bathrooms,” Glenn said.

But the backbone of the project, beneath the contemporary finishes, is its expert, age-friendly design.

Designed by specialist seniors’ living architects Marchese Partners and guided by leading industry standards, the apartments will be purpose-built for older residents and include features like wide hallways, easy-turn tapware and thoughtful lighting.

Residents can also have services delivered into their apartments, from assistance with household chores to care, for added convenience and support.

Glenn anticipates The Rise will attract interested buyers looking to downsize from family homes in the local area as well as Sydneysiders seeking a change of pace.

“I believe the biggest drawcard is the knowledge that you are living in an environment of like-minded people and that the style of living is easy,” he said.

“The Rise is perfect for those looking to enjoy luxury apartment living with the community, security and peace of mind of village life.

“It’s an incredibly exciting project to be a part of.”
