Celebrating 100th home with new homeowner

The Outlook Lifestyle Resort at Albany has officially welcomed Hazel MacKenzie as the 100th home sold at its over-50s lifestyle community.

Garry Holmes, Serenitas WA State Manager, was on hand to present the keys to Hazel MacKenzie’s new home, which is close to her mum Alison Smith, who is also a homeowner at The Outlook.
Rob Nichols, Serenitas CEO, is delighted that The Outlook Lifestyle Resort is celebrating this important milestone as it reflects not only the popularity of this community but the significant growth within the category. 
“Across Australia our portfolio of communities  have experienced unprecedented demand as people seek to downsize or as we prefer to say “rightsize”. All our communities offer low-maintenance homes in connected communities with the best of resort living,” Mr Nichols says.
“At The Outlook Lifestyle Resort, we’ve taken it a step further by creating a new standard of over-50s lakeside living with homeowners finding a picturesque lake and award-winning Clubhouse on their doorstep to enjoy year round.” 
With a cooler climate and a captivating coastline, Albany and the Southern Coast is an iconic WA destination that showcases the entire spectrum of natural coastal wonders, spectacular walking trails, historical sites, and delicious fine dining. 
Hazel MacKenzie moved into The Outlook after her mum purchased a home in the community. 
“Being near Mum was a key factor – but so too was being able to own a home, and to not have a mortgage. It offered me financial freedom. Now I can work if I want to work, rather than having to work, which was important to me,” Hazel explains.
“By buying into The Outlook, I was able to choose the home I wanted, with the features I wanted. I didn’t have to accept anything I didn’t want and I could add my own finishing touches. Best of all it’s in a beautiful location with the benefits of the lake, surrounded by an abundance of wildlife and close to the stunning coastal scenery – it’s a privilege to be able to live here.”
The Outlook Lifestyle Resort is a spectacular, gated, over-50s lifestyle community with luxurious resort facilities. Set on a scenic 45 acres, it offers tranquil contemporary living which has been master planned to showcase the beautiful lake, native wildlife and gardens.
Garry Holmes says, “We are thrilled to have Hazel join our vibrant community of homeowners. At The Outlook Lifestyle Resort, we offer resort-style living with the chance to do an activity you love or try something new, all while mingling with a community of like-minded people.”
