Latitude One over 55s lifestyle community logo


Port Stephens residents snap up new homes

Port Stephens residents have leapt at the chance to become the first in Australia to experience Ingenia’s new concept in over 55s resort living. Locals have snapped up the majority of homes at Ingenia Lifestyle’s Latitude One community with the first release selling out in a matter of days and the next release nearly 75 per cent reserved. The community’s first residents are set to arrive in April 2018.

Cocktails Canapés and all that Jazz!

The VIP First Choice Club have been invited to enjoy an evening of Jazz by the Sea as they get to know their new neighbours and celebrate the next exciting chapter in their lives with wonderful food and drinks at the Anchorage Resort. 

The famous 8 piece John Field Band will provide a night to remember as these clients celebrate their exciting future at Latitude One.

How to make life plans, designer style

Design tends to be seen as a specialist skill that traditionally refers to areas like graphics, architecture, interiors, or computer software. Recently two Stanford University lecturers translated their design thinking, taking it outside the design box and brought it into life thinking.

Latitude attitude will create longevity

Most would subscribe to the view that they would like to live longer, healthier and happier lives. And it is this attitude that has influenced the vision for Latitude One, a vision that inspires everything from accessible design, ideal facilities, to energising outlooks.

Lifestyle communities – the Ingenia difference

For many active retirees, making the most of their retirement lifestyle involves a move to a lower maintenance home. A home designed with this in mind can be found in over 55s communities, or retirement villages, or gated estates. Deciding which option is best for your circumstances will involve understanding the various financial arrangements these communities have in place, as it is quite difference to a normal home purchase.

Does personality determine your retirement?

One of the interesting things we observe working with many downsizers, and evident at our recent events, is that retirement is not a one-size-fits- all. As part of your retirement journey it may be helpful to ask “what retirement personality am I?”

Breaking ground for the official start of construction

On Saturday 1st July we marked the momentous occasion to break ground and turn the first sod onsite of our new master planned community. Set on 29.2 hectares and located in the leafy suburb of Anna Bay, Ingenia’s new community will deliver 229 new homes and a $5 million clubhouse for over 55s which is anticipated to include a pool, library, lawn bowls green, cinema, gym and sports bar.

What is a Land Lease Community?

Lifestyle-focused land lease communities are one of the fastest and most popular living trends for downsizers, setting new benchmarks in lifestyle communities. They are specifically tailored to the needs of active seniors allowing them to secure a brand new home, and are playing an important role in the provision of affordable housing for over 55s.
