It’s all taken care of for you
Even more affordable if you receive a pension
A huge benefit of our proven land lease model is that if you’re on a part or full pension, your Centrelink Rent Rebate will be deducted from your weekly rent. For example, If your weekly rental fees at an National Lifestyle Villages are $177 then after the weekly rebate from Centerlink the cost is reduced to $115 per week making it a compelling option for people on a fixed income.
A secure investment and a proven resales market
Like any other property, you have freedom to sell or will your home to someone else. The popularity of the National Lifestyle Villages model, combined with the increasing demand from Australia’s growing baby boomer population, means that if you buy an National Lifestyle Villages home there is a high likelihood you will have an increasing market of future buyers for your home.
However, before you proceed, we recommend you seek independent financial advice to ensure that purchasing one of our home and lifestyle packages suits you and your personal circumstances. As part of our sales process we will refer you to an independent financial expert to assist you in assessing the financial benefits compared to other options you may be considering.Enquire Now
No stamp duty when buying and no selling fees when selling!
As part of your lease agreement, the service of reselling your home is provided for you, at no extra cost. Your home is yours, a will-able asset that you are free to sell whenever you please.
Over the last 15 years, resale values of National Lifestyle Villages homes have tracked similarly to normal real estate and National Lifestyle Villages home-owners have realised good returns on their investment.
With the growing ‘Baby Boomer’ population, Lifestyle Villages are gaining popularity and we anticipate that over the next 20 years, our Villages will continue to become an increasingly sought-after option. Though some of our communities are currently sold-out, you can buy an established home and lifestyle package where, as with traditional real estate, the usual laws of supply and demand apply.
"I have always loved to dance"
I have always loved to dance.
It still makes me smile to remember when I was about 18, I used to be a Go-go Dancer with Milto and the Beat Girls. We travelled to other countries often (mainly Belgium and Germany) and we were treated like celebrities wherever we danced.
Even when I was a little girl growing up in the Netherlands, I have always been active. I have been working out in the Gym for the past 30 years and was so happy to be able to continue my workout right here at Bridgewater (free of charge too, no Gym Fees!). Since moving here
6 years ago, I have also taken up Tai Chi, Tap Dancing and Lawn Bowls. You wouldn’t believe what a workout Tap Dancing is, I just love it!
Living in the Village has also allowed me to indulge in my other passion with is art, painting and sketching (which I adore doing).
But my story starts last year in Barcelona, when I was sitting having a drink with my sister (who I had treated to a holiday) thinking about what I could do for the Annual Bridgewater Variety Show.
And I’m not sure if it was the Spanish air or the Rioja but I decided I was going to do a Pole Dancing Act as a comedy performance at the Show.
"It was, pre our 1st tour of duty, that this story begins"
I was part of the 1st National Service Ballot back in 1965. My intake was actually deferred for 6 months as I was studying in my role with the National Bank.
Being called up for National Service, meant that, like lots of other young Australian Men, I was sent to Puckapunyal for my military training. I was part of the 7th Battalion, which was made up of us National Service guys plus some fellas from the 3rd Battalion who had fought in Malaya.
At the time, we were a battalion without a mascot. The 5ths were known as the Tigers, the 8ths were known as the Stud Marinos (which Stan the Ram as their mascot) and so on.
It was, pre our 1st tour of duty, that this story begins. We had spent the February of 1966 day preparing for deployment, as our training had been completed. We were filling our days with medical examinations, equipment checking, marking our bags for easy identification etc.
We would do all this before the usual parading before Stand down at about 4pm. After Stand down, we would rush to change out of our uniforms and into some comfy tshirts and shorts, then retreat to the old Nissen Hut building for our evening fun.
