PAGE 16 I LAKES COAST VISITOR GUIDE PHILLIP ISLAND WONTHAGGI INVERLOCH LEONGATHA WILSONS PROMONTORY FOSTER TOORA Love a unique and boutique community With only 45 villas on its completion, boutique lifestyle retirement village, Mountain View Leongatha, is unique compared to the many larger villages in existence. It is for this reason many have made the move into this exclusive community - a lifestyle village for the active retiree or semi-retired who embraces life. With 45 residents currently occupying 27 villas, Mountain View Leongatha offers resort living every day. Its community centre has operated right from the start, which in turn has brought new residents in sooner rather than later. Family and friends are often seen using the salt-chlorinated pool, bowling green, lounge/dining and games areas - it really is the hub of many activities. It is also a pet friendly village. Much thought was given to the interior design of the villas. Contemporary kitchens, stylish living areas, spacious bathrooms and comfortable bedrooms, parking spaces or garages and 24-hour emergency call systems all go towards the focus of the villas to enhance lifestyle, security and freedom. Mountain View Leongatha helps personalise your retirement. Not sure about the legal, financial and service aspects when considering the benefits of a lifestyle change? Mountain View can assist there and can answer any queries you may have regarding retirement living. And the money saved when buying in at a lower price due to its regional location allows residents the opportuni- ty to invest their savings and fund their lifestyle. Mountain View Leongatha is a lifestyle investment and has had many residents move from the likes of Merimbula, Mount Martha, Bendigo, Lilydale and Pakenham. Many have chosen Leongatha as their new address because they know what South Gippsland has to offer - they may have holidayed here in the past or have just decided to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet not be too far to return to Melbourne for day trips. Many have decided on the sea-change, tree-change and me-change. Leongatha township is a lovely country town with a range of facilities including a great local hospital, which recently had a $30m redevelopment. Great day trips are available within the Gippsland area and Melbourne is very accessible if the city beckons. Thirty minutes from Leongatha is the coast with Wilsons Promontory National Park, and Philip Island is not too far to explore also. The choice is yours - either sea-change or tree-change all in one. With only a few villas remaining, management suggests you consider the option to purchase soon as the opportunity is reducing almost by the day. Make an appointment or check out their website to view the villas and this exciting new village. Enjoy the friendship that comes with life at Mountain View. Live a boutique lifestyle at Mountain View Leongatha.
