Oakland Village will offer 147 freehold, two and three-bedroom villas with a choice of four floorplans, some including side access for a campervan, priced from $299,000.

Developer James Robinson said while there had been strong inquiry from local buyers, downsizers from Brisbane and the Gold Coast were seeing the value in making the move to Beaudesert.

“Oakland Village is Beaudesert’s first independent retirement living community, so it’s really filling a gap for people who want to downsize and move to a quieter area within easy reach of the city,” Mr Robinson said.

“The big selling point for our buyers is the fact we will be building our community hub in the first stages of development, so residents will be able to enjoy these facilities as soon as they move in.

“Research has shown that remaining active and social has numerous health benefits for retirees, so we have carefully planned our community hub to offer amenities that will be of interest to people at all stages of life.

“I know some men are reluctant to downsize because they don’t want to lose access to their workshop, so we have included a men’s shed to allow them to continue to work with tools while creating new friendships.

“Likewise, the vegetable garden will give people a place to connect and reap the benefits of growing their own fresh produce in the community backyard.”

Oakland Village is being developed in stages, with the first seven villas under construction.

A future stage of the retirement village will include 120 beds in a high-care facility with staff on site.
