Family duo find new friends
Thangam and Meera Nair hadn’t planned on downsizing so soon, but when the upkeep of their four-bedroom home and pool in Springwood became too much, Meera said she was sold on the Halcyon lifestyle concept.
“I looked into Halcyon and I liked the fact that the house belongs to you and if you sell, the capital gains are yours as well with no exit or management fees,” Meera said.
The Nairs were among the first homeowners at Halcyon Rise, located in Logan Reserve, nestled between Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
The duo selected a three-bedroom, single-level home that would allow easy accessibility for Thangam, who has difficulty with stairs.
Meera said the spacious and comfortable home is light and bright with plenty of space for peace of mind as they age and require additional mobility assistance in the future.
“It feels like a home – like you are coming home to a normal house in a normal suburb, but with the added benefits of security in a gated community,” Meera said.
Thangam and Meera have settled into Halcyon Rise and enjoy the warm and welcoming community atmosphere and getting to know their neighbours.
“We lived in our old house in Springwood for 10 years and hardly knew our neighbours – we didn’t have the time as our lives were moving so quickly and separately,” Meera said.
“We’re at a stage in our lives now where we are mostly at home, so when we do walk around Halcyon Rise and bump into others it makes a difference – and that’s what this community is about.
“It makes you feel good to have a conversation with people who have time for you as well.”
