Downsizers looking for a sea change are flocking to the NSW Mid North Coast to purchase a retirement home. 

Retirement village, Ingenia Lifestyle South West Rocks said just eight new homes remain in its precinct with more expected to sell at the upcoming Open Day on Saturday 21 October from 10am to 2pm.

Project sales manager Wendy Hobson said, “The community’s popularity among downsizers, from both the local region and those seeking a sea change is on the rise, and our First Choice Club has seen more than 60 per cent of homes already reserved or contracted.” 

“Our community is perfect for active downsizers with the local Country Club, bowling greens and golf course all within close proximity for residents.”

One couple who are eager to move into their new home are Brian and Doreen Clune who said they cannot wait for their new coastal lifestyle to begin.

“The decision was to make the move now for our lifestyle and to plan ahead to make this our last move as we’re not going to move again,” Mr Clune said.

“South West Rocks’ coastal lifestyle sold it for us. We are within walking distance to everything, we are surrounded by other active seniors and we can park our caravan at home so we can go travelling whenever we like.”
