'With less to do around the house we now spend our time on activities and hobbies.'
People and Place
The site of Sugarwood Grove Garden Villas was selected by property developer Mr Alan Tesch as ideal to provide a community-style lifestyle for people ready to downsize and retire into a secure gated over 55's community where they have freehold ownership of their residence.
The western suburb of Bellbowrie (near Moggill) provides all the conveniences of city living. Shops, schools, markets, restaurants and cafes are available in Bellbowrie and the nearby suburbs of Kenmore and Indooroopilly.
Public transport is within easy walking distance. Frequent services operate daily to Kenmore, Indooroopilly, Roma Street, the CBD, QPAC and GOMA with connections to the University of Queensland.
Surrounded by parkland, the site at 119 Sugarwood Street, Bellbowrie, 4070 is also environmentally desirable, with a gentle slope enabling the preferred northerly aspect to all villas.
The site also allows space for visitor parking, and a secure area for parking of residents RV’s.
Construction of the 80 villas and over 55's community facilities is complete, allowing residents to enjoy the ambience of their surroundings free of the distraction of building works.
Over 55's Community
Our community offers many over 55's social events and activities for residents, which you are welcome to join in, or not as you please. Some of the things on offer include regular dinners, a book club, gardening club, carpet bowls, trivia nights, barbecues, bingo, and movie screenings.
A well-stocked bar, operated by volunteers is a popular meeting spot at the end of the day, with Friday night’s happy hour drawing a big crowd. Residents are kept informed of upcoming activities by a regular newsletter.
The hub of the village is the Community Centre, a purpose built facility which facilitates the wide range of activities enjoyed by our resident retirees. A committee, elected by owners each year manages the operations of the centre, and organises the program of events.
Associated with the centre are a heated swimming pool, gymnasium, well-equiped workshop, community vegetable garden plots, and a croquet lawn.
There's really not much more you could want or need for the ideal retirement lifestyle in Brisbane.
