Work begins on Glasshouse Mountains venture

The houses planned for Living Gems Glass House Mountains.

Work has begun on Living Gems Glass House Mountains, a $90 million over-50s lifestyle resort on the Sunshine Coast.

When complete, the resort will feature more than 200 homes centred around a multi-million-dollar country club and outdoor pool recreation precinct.

According to Living Gems CEO Adrian Puljich, Living Gems Glass House Mountains will set the standard for active over-50s living in the region.

“The resort, which is close to Beerwah, is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the best the Sunshine Coast has to offer,” he said.

“We’ve been inspired by the natural beauty of this location, so we’re going further in 2023 by raising the bar for active over-50s living at price that is also affordable.”

Stunning location with mountain views

The distinctly shaped Glass House Mountains will be the first thing visitors will see when driving into the resort. Living Gems Glass House Mountains is located close to the friendly, historic town of Beerwah, placing it near to local shops, restaurants, and hiking trails for both the active and the young at heart.

“Living Gems has a great reputation for offering outstanding value homes with quality resort facilities,” said Living Gems Glass House Mountains sales manager, Victoria Dent.

“People have always commented on the quality of our homes, and we look forward to showcasing designs that are perfectly rightsized for relaxed country living. Another area that will really impress will be facilities onsite for residents’ enjoyment.”

In addition to the well-appointed two-storey country club, set to include a grand ball room, bar and coffee lounge, ten-pin bowling, heating swimming pool, and gym, Living Gems Glass House Mountains will be the company’s first property to also boast a separate summer house with a resort-style outdoor swimming pool, pavilion, and barbecue facilities.

Fresh home designs

Living Gems Glass House Mountains will also feature nine brand new three-bedroom home designs featuring high ceilings, generous living spaces and quality appliances.

“We have created beautiful home designs especially for our subtropical lifestyle that are perfect for hosting family gatherings and for socialising with friends,” said Ms Dent.

The homes will offer an impressive level of inclusions as standard, including ducted air conditioning, solar panels, walk-in robes in two of the bedrooms. The kitchen includes stone workbenches and a walk-in pantry.

Explore a quality Land Lease Community

Mr Puljich said more and more people were looking at the land lease community model over traditional retirement villages or downsizing to an apartment.

“People find they get more value from a land lease community,” said Mr Puljich. “At Living Gems, residents own their own homes, pay no deferred management fees and keep 100% of their home’s capital gains should they decide to sell.

“They also enjoy a far greater range of facilities than are generally available in most strata communities. Best of all, the price of homes at Living Gems communities are surprisingly affordable. We don’t believe downsizing means compromising on lifestyle.”

“The Sunshine Coast has grown a lot over the years, and we’re delighted to have Living Gems Glass House Mountains join Living Gems Maleny and Living Gems Pacific Paradise to offer simply lifechanging resort living for active over-50s who are moving to the region for its unsurpassed lifestyle,” said Mr Puljich.
