At Springwood Living Group we believe that retirement living should be the most enjoyable years of your life. We are deeply focused on ensuring that our communities provide you the opportunity to actively be involved in as many or as few things as you desire.
All our senior team members have over 15 years’ experience in national organisations that own and develop retirement villages. This gives us the experience and unique ability to craft the lifestyle that retirement should be; promising connection, freedom, security and financial peace of mind.
Furthermore, it ensures we can identify the best architects, interior designers and landscape specialists—to deliver the lifestyle our hand-picked village managers will be proud to maintain and refine.
Our history and evolving story
Springwood Living Group is a boutique owner and manager of retirement villages. Our first flagship community (or asset) was The Woniora at Wahroonga (NSW), which we commenced in 2014.
From day one, we worked proactively with the existing residents to undertake a significant refurbishment which transformed the village. Often enjoying full occupancy, this community of 52 independent living apartments is much loved by residents and their families alike. Unit prices have appreciated significantly, as we continue to work hand in hand with the resident committee to constantly enhance the quality of life for all who live there which increases the demand of others looking to join our community.
Welcome to living the Springwood way
A new address. A familiar lifestyle. Our first challenge. We’re proud to say our first retirement village, The Woniora, combines the highest quality architectural design and finishes with uncompromising service and excellent security, to create a luxurious retirement lifestyle option. It is an enriching start to Springwood Living Group’s future vision—creating the freedom for residents to do everything they enjoy now, and opportunities to discover something new.
We believe retirement is all about immersing yourself in more of what you desire. At The Healey everything blends together just perfectly to achieve this. With 55 boutique independent living apartments we are creating just the right amount of privacy and community. The Healey combines contemporary character with a distinctive local coastal flavour. Each of the one, two and three bedroom apartments, in this architect-designed community, promises lifestyle flexibility now and in the future.
