Shortland Waters Retirement Living is set within a peaceful golf course in NSW’s Hunter Region providing residents with a leafy and secure lifestyle that appeals to golfers and non-golfers alike.
The vibrant master planned community in the idyllic Shortland Waters Golf Club is developed and managed by leading retirement living provider Aveo.
Located 12km from the bustling harbour city of Newcastle, the modern community has been so popular with retirees seeking to be part of the unique lifestyle that only limited villas remain for sale in the new stage due for completion in late 2023.
To meet this demand, Aveo has brought forward construction of the next stage, a collection of villas overlooking the fairways of Shortland Waters Golf Club.
Aveo’s regional sales manager Cameron Bayles says Shortland Waters has become the most sought-after community in the Hunter Region.
“Shortland Waters is redefining retirement living in an unmatched location that’s perfect for independent, active and social retirees,’’ Mr Bayles says.
“The location is really something, perched on a gentle ridge surrounded by the course’s fairways. It provides the perfect tree change in close proximity to a sea change, with the area’s stunning sandy beaches including Merewether.’’
Residents Peter and June Turnbull say they felt instantly at home when they moved to Shortland Waters more than two years ago.
“It was a big decision to sell our lovely family home but the time had come,’’ Mr Turnbull says. “We straight away had a sense of belonging, with a village atmosphere, sweeping views of the fairways of the golf club and our beautifully designed, low-maintenance villa.”
Residents enjoy a vibrant social calendar with a café, restaurant, bar, cinema, community centre, residents’ lounge, pool, gym, craft room, salon, library and communal vegetable garden.
For golfers, life doesn’t get any better than a stroll outside to the course. The 18-hole Shortland Golf Club recently underwent a multimillion-dollar redevelopment with a modern clubhouse and bistro.
The light filled villas are spacious with two bedrooms, a full-size kitchen, premium finishes, two bathrooms, a main bedroom with a walk-in robe, air-conditioning and ceiling fans, and a large undercover alfresco area perfect for entertaining friends and family. A lock-up garage and parking space are provided for a second car or visitor.
Designed for accessible living without stairs and trip hazards, the villas allow residents to age in place in their homes independently for longer.
Two-bedroom villas are available with a price range $630,00 to $735,000. Shortland Waters is located at 33 Shearwater Drive, Shortland. For more information visit:
