Jean and Alec Berrington, homeowners at Sapphire by Living Gems, share a glimpse inside their lives in this resort community designed for over 50s.
Once you step inside a Living Gems resort you enter a whole new world and escape the surrounding suburbia. The supportive community within is committed to a different lifestyle, with regular social activities. Security is uppermost; there is even a resident-run “street watch”.
The gated resort offers peace of mind for homeowners, especially for Jean and Alec who often enjoy travelling by car. Close neighbours help each other and ‘keep an eye’ on properties when residents are travelling or in hospital.
“We have lived here for 16 years and in that time, we have travelled extensively. Our most recent trips were down to Adelaide to visit some friends, then up to Cairns.”
After discovering a better life at Living Gems, Jean and Alec couldn’t wait to tell their friends and anyone else!
“We enjoy a quiet neighbourhood, stairs-free home, local shops and a lovely community. There is so much to love about our lifestyle at Living Gems.”
“When we first took a look around the resort all those years ago, we thought: we could live here! Each home is individual, which drew us to selecting a home in Sapphire by Living Gems above other resorts.”
“The public just doesn’t know what is available in the over 50s housing market – we love to use our home as a referral tool to sell our friends on the idea of living within this type of community.”
Although every Living Gems resort has a very busy social calendar, it should be noted that you have the freedom to do as little or as much as you like.
Jean and Alec enjoy a peaceful life in their beautiful, open plan home. They have a great position within the resort, it captures the summer breeze beautifully and is surrounded by lovely gardens.
