The Stage is Set
Oak Tree welcomes you to Toowoomba
As the dust settles post the grand opening of Oak Tree Toowoomba last weekend, the consensus is Toowoomba seniors were successfully wooed, many stating the village more then measures up to the local competition.
Resulting in 5 immediate sales, and more in the pipe line, the 330 visitors who toured the village were welcomed through the furnished display homes and saw the plans for the village community facilities – a community centre, pool and bowls green – which also commenced construction last week.
Director Mark Bindon had these words to say:-
"The feedback from people viewing the village for the first time was overwhelmingly positive – the location is well regarded – a flat elevated block on the southern side of Toowoomba."
"Many commented positively on the finishing of the product and the welcoming, homely feel of the village."
The aim of an Oak Tree open day is to present the full package of what the Oak Tree retirement lifestyle has to offer.
"Whilst the villas themselves are critically important for people, our visitors over the weekend were very interested in the opportunities provided through a maintenance-free lifestyle," said Mark.
"It’s a big decision for people to undertake and we do our best to provide as much support as we can; downsizing and moving after many years in one spot can be daunting so we always attempt to assist you each step of the way."
The first stage of the village consists of 25 villas with a mix of one, two and three bedroom designs.
Once sold down Oak Tree will develop a further 33 villas in the second stage.
"We differentiate ourselves by the fact that our villages are always smaller in size ensuring our village communities have a more neighbourly, intimate feel, helping our residents to belong within a community of friends, rather then strangers," said Mark.
"We also firmly believe in ensuring retirement accommodation, such as ours, is available in regional towns – we have a strong focus on providing villages in regional areas to avoid the need for seniors to uproot their lives to move to the cities, apprehensively leaving the towns they have grown up in and loved all of their lives."
