Introducing Living Choice’s first Over 50s Lifestyle Resort

Plans for Living Choice Mount Barker, billed as “Mount Barker’s finest lifestyle resort”, were unveiled at two Information Sessions held at Aston Hills Golf Club on 2nd February. Well-known personality, Keith Conlon OAM, who has been Living Choice’s Ambassador since 2012, was the MC for both sessions.

The Over 50s lifestyle community is a first for award-winning retirement village company, Living Choice, which has 10 operating villages in three states and two more under construction. The owners, Ian Tregoning and Graham Hobbs, also own and manage award-winning hospitality venues through their companies, EDP Hotels and Hotel & Club Specialists.

Both owners gave presentations at the Information Sessions and both were well-received. Ian gave a brief overview of their companies and design experience, stressing that the pursuit of quality was the driving force when designing homes and leisure facilities. Graham highlighted the many benefits of community living, including the opportunity to make new friends and live a sociable, healthy and happy life.

Craig Eyes, Head of Design, presented the site plan, Country Club and Recreation Centre plan, plus the 12 two and three-bedroom home designs, many with a choice of facades. Group General Manager, Jason Sack, also gave an overview on the financial and legal aspects of living in an Over 50s community and said a sales office was scheduled to open onsite in May/June. “At that stage, we will have our contracts ready and will be able to accept deposits,” he added.

Regional Manager, Katherine Stacey, said there had been an enthusiastic response by those who attended the Information Sessions and she continued to receive many enquiries.

Living Choice Mount Barker will comprise 215 homes, a Country Club and Recreation Centre with a wide range of facilities, a BBQ area, putting green, pickleball courts, bocce court and caravan storage.
