Australian grey nomad’s now more than ever have the best of both worlds, spending their retirement travelling but not compromising on a home base, somewhere that’s theirs and they can enjoy with family.

The Medowie lifestyle offers the perfect mixture of being close to local amenity whilst being a peaceful place to call home on generous sized blocks. Hunter based property company the McCloy Group create national award winning masterplanned communities and are the developers behind the popular Bower estate in Medowie. Their passion of creating quality and sustainable environments in which people love to live is clear with The Bower homing a 1 hectare park with playground equipment and above average homesites, with blocks up to 5000m2! For the Spithill family, residents of The Bower the mixture of a rural lifestyle with modern necessities was high on their priority list. They wanted a home close by family that offered the option to safely store their caravan whilst away from home.

“We decided to move to Medowie for a change in lifestyle. The Bower at Medowie by the McCloy Group has exceeded all our expectations, we were looking for a rural lifestyle but still close to all the modern necessities. The estate has a rural and relaxed feeling while still providing a great lifestyle for families with a state-of-the-art playground and beautiful art sculptures throughout the estate. The attention and care taken to ensure the estate is always looking its best is just one of the reasons we love living here. The Bower is a community which we are proud to be a part off and the large block sizes gave us the space we needed for storage.”

The new park facilities provide hours of entertainment when the grandchildren visit and security of living amongst like-minded neighbours is a benefit when travelling about Australia in the caravan. For the Spithill family the flat blocks, quality of development and location nearby Medowie shops and facilities made The Bower the ideal place to enjoy their retirement.
