Creating Australia’s finest retirement living
From humble beginnings at Davistown, NSW in 1992, Living Choice Australia has grown to become one of the largest and most respected retirement village companies in Australia.
The directors, Adelaide born-and-bred businessmen Ian Tregoning and Graham Hobbs, have extensive experience in the hospitality industry through their company Hotel Consultancy Services. They purchased Living Choice Australia Ltd in December 2003 and over the years, have expanded the Living Choice portfolio to more than 1,651 retirement homes and 2,065 residents in three states.* (*Correct as at March 2016.)
Ian and Graham are not only committed to creating highly desirable independent living communities where residents can embrace all the opportunities to enjoy their retirement – they are also mindful that residents may need more care in the future. Together with Estia Health and Arcare, aged care facilities are being built on site, where possible, and alliances have been formed with aged care providers to enable our retirement village residents to access a range of services.
“We offer the ‘choice of luxury and the luxury of choice’ and the increasing demand at our villages around the country tells us we’ve got the formula right.”
There are now nine operating Living Choice villages in Australia.
Sunshine Coast Villages:
The Sunshine Coast is renowned for its laid-back lifestyle, warm sunshine, pristine beaches, sub-tropical forests, freshwater lakes and rivers – it’s the perfect place to enjoy your hard-earned retirement. Located just one hour and 15 minutes north of Brisbane, with easy motorway and rail access, the area has become a haven for retirees seeking a warmer climate and relaxing lifestyle, yet be close to excellent medical, shopping and sporting facilities.
Living Choice’s retirement villages at Kawana Island and Twin Waters take full advantage of their picturesque locations and their well-designed luxury homes have become the benchmark in the industry. Plans for the company’s third Queensland retirement community at Sunshine Cove in Maroochydore are also underway.
South Australia’s cosmopolitan coastal capital, Adelaide, is home to renowned museums, vast green parklands, bustling markets and exceptional wineries.
Living Choice Fullarton is a luxury retirement village superbly located in Fisher Street, Fullarton, an upmarket, quiet, tree-lined suburb which is close to the city, parklands and the prestigious King William Road and Unley Road shopping precincts. If you don’t feel like venturing out, you can enjoy a superb meal at the on-site restaurant, Damien on Fisher, incorporating Hudsons Coffee. Living Choice Fullarton has won several awards, including the UDIA 2015 Award for Best Retirement Living Development and the Property Council of Australia’s Award for Best Development in South Australia in 2016.
Most of the apartments have a north/south orientation with views to the city at the north and sweeping views of the Adelaide Hills to the east and south.
Living Choice Woodcroft is located on an elevated plateau in Pimpala Road, Woodcroft, within walking distance of the recently upgraded Woodcroft Plaza which has a Woolworths Supermarket, pharmacy, news agency, bakery, food outlets and hair and beauty salon. The Woodcroft Town Centre and Mall, medical centres and schools are also close by.
The largest shopping complex in Adelaide, Westfield Marion, as well as leading shopping centre, Colonnades, are 15 minutes away and the village is only a 30-minute drive to the Adelaide CBD. There is easy access to Brighton Beach, with its art deco shops, jetty, cafes and restaurants.
Central Coast Villages:
With its golden, sandy beaches, idyllic lakes, beautiful National Parks and State Forests, the Central Coast of NSW is the perfect place to enjoy relaxed retirement living.
Located just one hour north of Sydney, with excellent motorway and rail access, the area has become a haven for retirees seeking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, yet be close to excellent medical, shopping and sporting facilities.
Living Choice’s villages, Alloura Waters at Davistown, Broadwater Court at Kincumber and Deepwater Court at Woy Woy, take full advantage of their picturesque locations and their well-designed retirement homes are always in demand.
Living Choice Glenhaven retirement community is situated in the picturesque Hills District with the stunning Blue Mountains in the background. The Glenhaven area has retained its rural village charm, even though it’s only 15 minutes from the vibrant and cosmopolitan suburb of Castle Hill.
The Hills District boasts modern shopping and entertainment venues, great restaurants and cafes and a number of renowned golf courses, bowling clubs, country clubs and nature reserves.
Living Choice Glenhaven takes full advantage of its great location, offering luxury retirement homes in beautiful, award-winning landscaped gardens. It has won many awards, including Best Multi-Unit/Housing Residential Development at the Hills Building and Design Awards, Best Commercial Garden at the Orange Blossom Festival Awards and being placed in the top 6 in Australia in the 2014 Property Council of Australia Innovation and Excellence Awards.
Set in award-winning gardens in the heart of Sydney’s sought-after northern suburbs, Leisure Lea Gardens Retirement Village is a peaceful, pretty haven with all the advantages of being only 18km from Sydney’s CBD.
For those who want peace of mind in their retirement and the option of care around the clock, Leisure Lea Gardens is the sensible choice. There are staff members on-site seven days a week, 24 hours a day to respond to any emergency.
Living Choice also recently purchased a third retirement living site in Sydney – at 330 Galston Road in the beautiful fruit orchard area of Galston. Although it’s in a peaceful, semi-rural area, it’s within walking distance of a shopping centre, including an Aldi Supermarket, medical centre and restaurants. Plans are currently being prepared for submission to the local council.
