Aveo leads the charge into retirement heaven
THE race to retire in one of the most popular regions of Victoria is on and leading provider Aveo is helping lead the charge.
The retirement giant has invested a $20 million boost into its Cranbourne East community as the area continually grows as a preferred destination for Australian seniors.
The facility, Aveo Hunters Green, will feature 25 two and three-bedroom independent living units when the first stage of construction is completed this month.
The final two stages are expected to be completed by 2019.
Aveo executive general manager Angela Buckley said the need to grow with the region - the second fastest growing suburb in 2017 - was paramount for the company.
"Cranbourne East is considered a gateway to the Mornington Peninsula, so thanks to its prime location, our Aveo community is ideal for seniors wishing to spend their retirement in such a peaceful and relaxing environment," Ms Buckley said.
"The wider community has really come of age and the original vision of the region as one of the state's premier retirement locations has been achieved - Aveo Hunters Green has and will continue to grow with the local area.
"With all of our current units selling out, we're seeing locals really embrace the community, and because care is at the heart of everything we do, our residents at Aveo Hunters Green benefit from exactly that."
Hunters Green residents Brendan and Lerys Byrnes said the community's location and lifestyle aspects - such as a library and a hair and beauty salon - were two of their favourite factors since becoming residents.
"We are really enjoying the environment and sense of community involvement," Mr Byrnes said.
"We appreciate the excellent upkeep and layout of the building and gardens, as well as the proximity of shopping facilities, which makes it a pleasure to live here."
