If you plan to downsize then your first port of call has to be the Alumuna Independent Living Houses.
Coming up in March is an open day at the estate off Scoullar St, Finley to find out all about the homes and how you can benefit from easy living.
Stage two of the estate has started with 14 blocks prepared, consisting of two two-bedroom and two three-bedroom homes.
There will also be a separate section with six one-bedroom apartments.
Stage one is already completed with six houses built.
Finley Regional Care CEO Ben Levesque said there is a wide range of options available to suit individuals or couples.
‘‘We have eight floor plans which the buyer can choose from,’’ he said.
‘‘At this stage we have the one couple who moved in recently and have already remarked it feels like home.
‘‘There has been plenty of interest in our other five properties and even on hot days people are coming along to have a look at them.
‘‘Once a few people can get their affairs sorted they’ve indicated they’re keen to move in so anyone interested should make a choice quickly.’’
Alumuna is perfect for over 55 lifestyle living.
The homes include garage, generous space — both indoor and outdoor — and are pet friendly.
All houses are built with no steps and have the space to include hand rails and other aids.
‘‘If you want to downsize a bit, have less maintenance and more travel then this style of living will suit,’’ Mr Levesque said.
‘‘We use the tag line ‘free to roam’ because we promote the fact if you want to travel and come back to a house the way you left it; not coming home to massive lawns, it’s all taken care of.
‘‘These are purpose built homes that can change to suit the residents’ needs.
‘‘We can provide transport into town and to the various clubs plus help arrange the social memberships to the clubs and cover the costs.’’
Alumuna open day is on March 6 from 10am until 2pm and will include tours, a barbecue and giveaways.
Display homes will be open every Wednesday from 10am until 2pm, all other times are by appointment only.
