Beautiful homes, perfect location!

Thank you for your interest in our beautiful Brindabella Court Downer, and welcome to Independent Retirement Living at its very best!

Our gorgeous Community Centre in the heart of our village is now fully renovated, and we are also very excited about our fresh new look both externally and inside our beautiful villas.

Here in our warm and welcoming community, all of our villas have lovely private courtyards and most offer the option of a garage. Our light-filled two bedroom homes offer the lifestyle and comfort you would expect from one of Canberra's most respected retirement communities. When these do become available, many of our homes are now fully renovated with open plan kitchens and living areas, and beautiful bathrooms. We are also proud to offer a very small number of one bedroom villas - so there is always an affordable option for you. Our gorgeous fully renovated two bedroom villas range from $480,000 to $510,000 - and naturally no Stamp Duty is payable.


Financial Information

Departure Fee

A Departure Fee is payable to the Operator and is calculated on your Ingoing Contribution (the price you PAID for your home). This fee is calculated on a daily basis to a maximum of 30% after five years of occupancy, as follows:  

 Year 1 - 10%

 Year 2 - 5%

 Year 3 - 5%

 Year 4 - 5%

 Year 5 - 5%


Share in Capital Gain

You will also share in any capital gain when you leave our Community. A capital gain occurs where the next Resident of a home pays a higher Ingoing Contribution than the former resident of that home. Any capital gain is shared as follows:

 You receive 70%

 The Operator receives 30%

Please note: you DO NOT share any Capital Loss (that is, if the next Resident pays a lower Ingoing Contribution than the former Resident).


Recurrent Charges

The fortnightly recurrent charges are cost recovery only, and full details are provided to all residents annually. These recurrent charges cover your rates, water rates, building and Public Liability insurances, our 24/7 emergency call system, 24/7 on-call staff, operating expenses for the village bus, repair and maintenance to your home and items that we have provided in your home, and common area building and grounds. You pay for your own phone/data, electricity, and home contents insurance. These recurrent charges increase in line with annual CPI adjustments, and are finalised in consultation with our Residents.

Valuation of homes

An Independent Valuer is contracted every year to provide current valuations for each of our homes.

Please contact me for our General Information Document and full Disclosure Statement for further details, and I will be delighted to discuss further.

Please also bear in mind we are in the very fortunate position of being able to offer you up to three months to market your current home. Everything we do is designed to make your move as simple and easy as possible. Our emergency call system is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and we also have our own staff on call - just one more reason to feel safe and secure in your new home. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Now is a perfect time to consider a fresh new start.

Of course there is never any pressure, but if you would like to meet me for a chat and explore your options, I would be delighted to meet with you and welcome you to our beautiful community. I am available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please give me a call on 0447 618 789, and let's arrange a convenient time to catch up.
