Southern Cross Care Queensland (SCCQ) is pleased to announce that the practical completion on the final stage of development at Stretton Gardens Retirement Estate was achieved on 7 February.
Featuring two-bedroom and two-bedroom plus study homes, new residents have already started moving in and are overwhelmingly positive about their move to Stretton Gardens. With eighteen homes in Stage 4 and sixteen homes in Stage 5, prices start from $495,000 and are proving to be very popular.
The completion of the final stages will be celebrated with an event on Thursday March 5, where refreshments and live music will accompany the official opening.
Village Manager Cameron McAlpine said that the opening event was an opportunity for anyone to appreciate the low-maintenance lifestyle and friendly community for themselves. “We’ll have units open for display, and everyone is invited to come along and see for themselves.”
Chief of Property and Asset Services Scott Bird thanked the builders Stokes Wheeler for their work on completing the final stages of Stretton Gardens.
Chief Executive Officer Jason Eldering said that while it was a big decision to make the move to a retirement living community, the friendly sense of community only added to the on-site amenities, which include a heated pool, spa, gym, library, and function room. The $15 million development over two stages complements the existing residential care facility at Stretton Gardens, allowing couples with different care needs to live close by.
“The integration of retirement living, community care and residential aged care is an outstanding feature of our Stretton location and makes planning into the future so much easier,” said Mr Eldering.
