Premier Lawn Bowling and Sportsman Club facilities just 2 minutes drive away An absolute waterfront village on the Bellarine Peninsula situated only 9km from the heart of Geelong is offering possibly the cheapest waterfront homes in Australia! Selling from just $130,000, Pelican Shores Estate, a secure, friendly and established community for the mature aged, not only offers a range of new homes but has newly available home sites that are situated a stone's throw from the water 's edge. If you can picture yourself relaxing on the deck of your brand-new home enjoying the beautiful waters of Corio Bay, being the envy of all your friends, then Pelican Shores Estate could be the place for you. Like many baby boomers heading towards retirement, you may be at the stage where you are starting to consider your future lifestyle. This is a major life decision and, after considering all the options available, more and more baby boomers are making the move into over- 50s lifestyle villages like Pelican Shores Estate. At Pelican Shores you can enjoy an amazing waterfront location, downsize to hassle-free living and become part of a vibrant, active and likeminded community. You may also be able to free up extra cash to spend on the more enjoyable things in life like travel. Another big attraction of this lifestyle option is that there is no limit to the variety of designs and styles of manufactured homes from which to choose. Where established retirement villages often have homes that are already built and the buyer has no real opportunity to customise the design, a Pelican Shores Estate home is built in a quality controlled factory and can be easily personalised to reﬂect your individual tastes and needs. That means you can specify exactly what you want in your new home. An important feature for many new residents at Pelican Shores Estate is that their manufactured home and residential site has been designed to require the minimum of maintenance, leaving you free to enjoy the wonderful waterfront lifestyle on offer. We asked Andrew Hoffman of Hampshire Property Group, which is a supplier of manufactured homes to resorts in NSW and Victoria, why anyone would buy a manufactured home in a lifestyle village rather than a place in a retirement village. "That's easy," he answered. "When you buy a manufactured home in a lifestyle village there are minimal additional costs involved and the home design can be tailored to your speciﬁc needs. You may also be eligible for Commonwealth ﬁnancial assistance and it makes better ﬁnancial sense because you can avoid the additional cost of deferred management fees. In fact, the better question to ask would be, 'Why buy in a retirement village?'" Pelican Shores Estate has additional storage space for residents' caravans and boats. This means that you can lock up your home, hook up the caravan or boat and hit the open road at the drop of a hat, safe in the knowledge that the gated community, onsite professional and caring managers and friendly neighbours will keep an eye on your home for you. Being a petfriendly village is also a greatly appreciated beneﬁt to our residents. Those seeking the fun and companionship that a community such as Pelican Shores Estate has to offer can take advantage of the active social committee, boat club, village facilities that include a jetty, boat ramp and swimming pool, and a community centre that caters for all your social and recreational requirements. Pelican Shores Estate is situated on the stunning shores of Corio Bay in Geelong. Come and visit with our friendly sales staff; soak up the atmosphere of our beautiful waterfront location; take a stroll along the boardwalk and through our newly planted village gardens; inspect our new homes and discover how you too can enjoy a true waterfront lifestyle. You are guaranteed to fall in love with the Pelican Shores Lifestyle!
