Seachange Riverside Coomera, Downsize to Luxury

More than half the homes in an over 50s riverfront community at Coomera have now sold as downsizers look to their future and embrace an environmentally-friendly lifestyle.

Seachange Riverside Coomera is a boutique development of 124 homes set on more than 6ha on the Coomera River.

Marketed as a “Lifestyle Resort” it offers a variety of home designs along with community facilities including a River House recreational centre, a newly completed Country Club, pools, a bowling green and an art studio.

Seachange Riverside Coomera is the third over 50s resort to be developed by Pradella Property Ventures and sales director Alex McMahon said it was designed to offer a sustainable active lifestyle.

The properties include premium finishes, high-end appliances and range in size from 140sqm to 235sqm.

Mr McMahon said the site featured green space on three sides, views to Mt Tamborine and a 20m environmental zone along the river.

The master-planned community also incorporated environmental features such as solar power, natural materials, water retention and landscaping.  “What this demographic wants is good quality homes in a pristine location, and if you can build a sustainable development you reduce the cost of living for residents in the future.” Mr McMahon said.

He said buyers now had a greater understanding of the difference between over 50s communities and retirement villages.

“When we started in the industry 10 years ago we had to educate people, but now a new wave of buyer is coming through.  Where once residents tended to be over 70, our youngest is 53”
