The Avenues at Fairfield Grange, Townsville’s newest boutique retirement community, will provide much-needed accommodation for the city’s seniors and the region’s growing ageing population.

Lorna Mead, whose family once owned a plant nursery in Idalia, the site of Fairfield Grange, was one of the first people to put her name down to move into The Avenues.

She decided it was the retirement community for her after being “very impressed” by the care given to her late husband at Carinity’s existing residential aged-care community on the site.

“The care he received there was exemplary, they did a wonderful job and they were so compassionate and accommodating,” Lorna says.

Lorna was also attracted by The Avenues at Fairfield Grange’s focus on lifestyle, the contemporary design of its villas, and being within walking distance of conveniences and public transport and just 6km from Townsville CBD.

The Avenues at Fairfield Grange is across the road from Townsville’s first urban village precinct, with boutique retail sites including gourmet butcher, gourmet fruit shop and juice bar, and full-line delicatessen.

“We’ve deliberately designed these homes to ensure residents have space for themselves while being able to enjoy the company of like-minded people,” James Woods from Carinity says.

“We started out wanting to deliver incredible value for people and we’ve been able to achieve that with the Master Plan, the contemporary design and interiors, security, and community features including walking distance to restaurants, convenience stores, and health services.

“With The Pavilion community centre, aquatic area and bowls green to be completed in the first stage, there’s no wonder we’re seeing strong interest from outside of Townsville.”

The first stage of The Avenues at Fairfield Grange, 76 retirement villas, is expected to be completed by September 2019.  The villas are priced from $425,000.
