Imagine waking up every day in a peaceful bushland haven to the sound of birdsong. Sprawled across 3.3 hectares of natural bushland in Frenchs Forest, the Northern Beaches will soon be home to a brand-new luxury retirement village called The Falls Estate. With 41 stylish and predominantly north-facing two and three-bedroom apartments, this suburban escape is already hot property for those over 65 seeking an active and independent lifestyle.

What truly sets The Falls Estate apart is its boutique approach to retirement living, and there’s a beautifully furnished preview apartment that allows people to envisage what living at The Falls Estate will be like.

Stand out features include elegant timber flooring and ample storage for clutter-free living.  A sandstone-surround gas fireplace creates a warm and inviting ambience, while natural light floods through the rooms, bringing the outside in. The kitchens are fitted with top-name appliances from Miele and Fisher & Paykel, with Smartstone benchtops and splashbacks adding an extra touch of sophistication.

Each apartment also comes with two secure basement car spaces, plus a spacious lockup cage for additional storage.

“The design was done by a specialist in retirement living, Marchese Partners,” says David Leiton, Senior Marketing Director. “For example, there are no raised surfaces, which means its wheelchair friendly and safer from trip hazards.”

The beauty of The Falls Estate also lies in its natural surroundings. Here, residents can enjoy the best of both worlds – the peaceful seclusion of and the spectacular views across the bushland and the convenience of being located just a stone’s throw from the town centre, a mere 10 minutes from Dee Why Beach and a half-hour drive from the CBD.

“Our location is in a natural valley so you feel like you’re in the bush, but in reality, you’re close to everything you might need. You have the new Northern Beaches Hospital, the beaches,  shops, cafes and restaurants right at your doorstep,” says David.

Residents can escape the hustle and bustle with private walking tracks, an onsite waterfall, extensive outdoor spaces and an off-leash dog area (yes, pets are welcome). They will also get to enjoy a gazebo with an outdoor kitchen and barbeque, communal indoor kitchen and lounge, snooker room, gymnasium, indoor 20-metre lap pool, a reception staffed on weekdays, and a concierge to take the stress out of day-to-day requests.

“We will also have a community bus to help shuttle people to local shops,” adds David. “And there are already discussions with purchasers about what they are interested in, yoga, walking clubs, swimming, seniors’ gym, photography… it’s about consulting the people living in the community and working with them to deliver the life they want. We have already had events for purchasers too, and they are forming friends and looking forward to community life.”
