On Wednesday 3 June 2020, the first sod was turned at the over 50’s community, Freshwater by Ingenia Lifestyle, in Burpengary East for the new luxury clubhouse.

Once completed, the clubhouse will become the communal heart of the community and boast an array of state-of-the-art facilities including a fully fitted-out gymnasium, pool, alfresco barbeque area, luxury spa, community cinema and lawn bowl area.

Ingenia Communities Chief Executive Officer Simon Owen said the new facilities would help to further expand the newly developed community and give residents a dedicated space for activity.   

“As the Freshwater community grows, the clubhouse will be incredibly valuable in creating an engaging and enjoyable space for residents to get to know one another,” Mr Owen said.

“Freshwater residents are looking forward to an easing of the current health restrictions and to spending time together as a community.

“We are dedicated to maintaining Ingenia over 50s communities as safe, secure and welcoming places to live and the clubhouse sod turning symbolises a brighter future ahead.

“Residents who downsize to our communities are looking to stay healthy, active and social alongside a low-maintenance and relaxed life − these new facilities will go a long way in giving our residents this opportunity,” Mr Owen said.
