Discovering the right size home for empty nesters


The kids have grown from precious little babies to completely independent adults and have now flown the coup, leaving you with a huge, empty house.

With retirement possibly just around the corner, now could be the time to start considering resizing your large home for one that provides for your specific needs both now and as you grow older.

“Right sizing your home is a big step in any family’s journey, but sometimes (depending on your previous abode) it is an essential one,” Building and Design Consultant at Gregory Hills, Ceri Kirkendoll said.

“I think the most important thing for couples and singles looking to find the right home to provide for their needs throughout the rest of their lives is that while they are looking for a smaller more manageable home, they shouldn’t have to sacrifice on all the lifestyle elements they love. That’s why our affordable GenOne Range has been a big hit with empty nesters,” Ceri said.

Our GenOne homes have been designed to offer all the best features of modern architecture and craftsmanship at an affordable price.

Without sacrificing the lifestyle elements or spaces that modern families desire, the GenOne Range perfectly caters to smaller blocks of land as well as to both first home buyers and empty nesters looking for a living solution that meets their unique needs and provides true value for money.

For families looking for a little more space in their new home, the Nova Two has become a popular choice for empty nesters.

“The stunning design aspects and versatility of the Nova makes this beautiful home a popular choice for couples at a range of lifestyle stages, including those who are in the process of transitioning into retirement,” Building and Design Consultant at Bells Reach, Bobby Hetherton said.

“This home offers the best of both worlds – the seamless flow of indoor and out in a variety of spaces fit for vibrant entertaining with the added bonus of a sumptuous private home theatre, plus quiet accommodation retreats that perfectly provide for homeowners as well as for family and friends who pop in for a visit or overnight stay.”

As is the case with every home design in the ever-growing GenOne Range, we have made the most of every space in the Nova to ensure practical family living requirements and entertaining essentials are easily met.

“The GenOne portfolio is a fantastic choice for growing families as well as couples who have already watched their family grow and move on to discover their own home ownership dreams,” Bobby said.
