Seniors living opportunity on offer at Huntlee

Huntlee is the first new town to be built in the Hunter in more than 50 years. On completion, it will be home to around 20,000 people. The township’s 7500 homes will be spread across four villages surrounding a 200ha bustling town centre.
With off-the-plan residential land sales about to hit 200 and Coles already committed to a full-scale supermarket and associated retail stores, the town of Huntlee is taking shape. The next commercial offer to the market is a major Seniors Living Development site which will be for sale by Expressions of Interest.
Commenting on the opportunity, Huntlee Sales Director, Adam Lotherington said a significant parcel of land had been earmarked for the site and the Huntlee team is eager to see what ideas potential partners have for the concept.
“We’re offering up to ten hectares of land adjacent to the $10m Town Park and just a short stroll from the town centre,” said Adam.
“Zoned B4 Mixed Use, all utility services will be made available to the level site and the shape of the final parcel of land is open to negotiation based on the requirements of the purchaser.
“First class, resort-style Seniors Living facilities are coming online across the country in response to the demands of an ageing population. They cater for the over 50 market who are looking to down-size and simplify their lifestyle, reduce the demands of maintaining a large family home and pursue more leisure activities.
“These usually gated communities are the ideal solution, they provide affordable, quality living options, outstanding communal facilities, a wide range of services in close proximity and all in an area populated by like-minded residents at a similar stage in their lives.
“The parcel of land we have earmarked at Huntlee opens up an extensive range of options to deliver a Seniors Living lifestyle offering of a standard not currently available in this area and all on the doorstep of the world famous Hunter Valley Wine Country.
“The location is sure to appeal to current residents of the area and tree-changers alike looking for an all-new, fully serviced, Seniors Living resort with a wide range of home options. We are excited to offer the market this opportunity to create a unique over 50s community which will grow alongside the vibrant, 21st Century community that is Huntlee,” concluded Adam.
