Sandy Creek at Sugar Valley Construction Update – Sep 2020

Construction is progressing rapidly on Stage 1 of the Sandy Creek extension to Sugar Valley Lifestyle Estate, with 50% of the apartment-style homes already reserved.  They will be ready for occupation early in the new year, so be the first to enjoy the value, amenity and service at Sandy Creek.  If you would like to find out more, or attend our display room at Sugar Valley you can call Gerry on 02 4953 3322.

Over the past six months, retirement communities have provided a special blend of support and security to their residents.  This village has always offered an independent, secure and low-maintenance lifestyle combined with a beautiful and flourishing community atmosphere.  “Sandy Creek will take this to the next level, offering even more choice in our homes, along with more services and support,” says Gerry Kilby, Manager of Sales. “We believe that, like-for-like, we offer the best value in the region.”  New two-bedroom Sandy Creek homes start from $415,000.

The estate already offers a variety of homes.  “We have a rare 3-bedroom ‘Hunter’ available which has been refurbished to be near-new.  And there will soon be a 3-bedroom ‘Yarra’ and ‘Barossa’.  The ‘Yarra’ that was recently available found a new owner within a couple of weeks, so we advise people not to wait if they are considering the move to Sugar Valley,” says Gerry.

Sugar Valley Lifestyle Estate surrounds the Sugar Valley Golf Course and is set within the picturesque backdrop of Sugarloaf Mountain.  The estate is on the border of Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, with easy access to the Hunter Valley.  It is currently home to a vibrant, established community.  There is an existing Community Centre with activity and lounge spaces, a library, a hairdressing salon, a podiatrist, and the new Welcome Centre at Sandy Creek will add a café, dining room, pool, gym, concierge, more consulting rooms, new club facilities and much more.

Retirement living homes should offer a fit-for-purpose environment for the residents.  “Residents should be able to enjoy level, step-free access throughout the village and their home.  Whereas so many older (and some new) villages have steps and hazards throughout, Sugar Valley and Sandy Creek pay intimate attention to these important details,” says Michaela Endicott, Project Architect at AEH.

“Over the past six months, we have been very focused on ensuring that we offer the best possible support to our residents to help keep them safe during this time.  We know from experience that the residents at Sugar Valley, and many other villages, have appreciated having their own homes, but within a community that cares for their wellbeing,” says Warren Bradshaw, the Village Manager. “We believe that this trend will continue and grow.  The Sandy Creek extension will help us deliver even more comprehensive services and support, with a greater choice of homes for independent living.”
