June and John McLean have called Coalfields home for over 15 years, and they say relocating to the friendly, secure residential park was one of the best decisions they’ve ever made.
Safe and secure at Coalfields
IF YOU were ever wondering what life is like for permanent residents at Coalfields Caravan and Residential Park, all you need to do is ask the locals.
John and June McLean have resided in their comfortable two-bedroom cottage for more than 15 years, and they say investing in a property in the safe and secure park is one of the best decisions they’ve ever made.
“It’s wonderful, we feel like we’re on holiday all the time,” John laughed.
“There’s a great atmosphere here no matter what time of year it is.
“We just love it.”
Former Brighton residents, the McLeans first moved to Bass Coast after John retired in 1989.
After spending 11 years at Inverloch, the couple decided it was time to downsize.
They chose Coalfields because it represented fantastic value.
“We knew we needed a smaller place, but we didn’t want to give up all the things that make a home feel like a home,” June said.
“There’s space for a lovely garden here and John even has his own workshop out the back.”
In close proximity to Wonthaggi Hospital, shops and the added bonus of some great park amenities (such as a solar heated indoor pool and handy little convenience store near the entrance), it’s easy to understand why Coalfields is consistently a popular lifestyle choice for elderly locals.”
The only thing better than the park itself, the McLeans say, is the amount friends they’ve made over the years.
“Everyone here is like our extended family,” June said.
“We all support each other and you couldn’t ask for better friends.
“Lately, we’ve been sharing apple cucumbers we grew in our garden with others.
“It’s really nice to do things like that with your neighbours.”
The benefits on offer to over 55s choosing to live permanently at Coalfields are numerous, including:
* You can own your own unit and pay no stamp duty upon purchase
* No land or water rates to pay
* Family welcome to visit with no fee charged to visitors
There are more than 100 units on site, and the park has almost reached its full capacity.
A further nine luxury units are scheduled to begin construction soon, so now is the time to seize the opportunity to stake a claim and become a resident in this vibrant community.
If you don’t want to wait, there’s a very affordable, brand new two-bedroom unit on site now that’s available to purchase.
Built by Coldon Homes, the unit includes a large car park, water tank and air conditioning.
The unit is available now for just $150,000.
A select few pre-loved units are also currently for sale.
