An app that is exclusively for Samford Grove residents will empower you and your family with smarter ways to make the most of your retirement lifestyle.

The Samford Grove app is easy to download on an iPhone or iPad and is packed with plenty of clever features to connect you with the community!

Want to read up on news from the local area? Maybe you want to share photos of The Homestead’s swimming pool, library or cafe with your chosen family and friends? This will all be at your fingertips.

Once you become a Samford Grove resident the app will expand to keep you informed about the many activities and interest groups on offer. You can enjoy a new level of convenience as you tap to view our cinema screening times, vote on your preferred movie option then book your attendance.

Our residents’ safety and comfort are at the heart of this innovative approach. You can expect to receive an alert if a storm is approaching or a local power outage is scheduled, and you can contact the Samford Grove management team directly via the app with any maintenance queries or general feedback.

Should you choose to share a scaled-back version of the app with your family members or friends they can have added peace of mind by seeing when you stay active by attending village events.

Reside Communities Operations Manager, Craig Syphers, said the bespoke app had been in development for more than six months before the innovative technology was perfected.

“During the design phase we were very conscious of meeting the changing needs of our residents,” said Mr Syphers. “When using the Samford Grove app you will see it is very visual, with more graphics and less text making it accessible and easy to navigate.

“We are delighted that it has been so well received within our community. More than 80 per cent of residents within the community have already used their app to stay connected with a few taps of their fingers.

“The Samford Grove team is committed to finding innovative new ways for residents to interact with their fellow residents, their own families and with our management team,” he said.

Of course, we ensure that anyone who prefers not to use their Samford Grove app doesn’t miss out. All community information will be accessible on our display board and anyone who doesn’t respond via the app will always be contacted directly by our team when necessary.

This innovative approach to creating an outstanding retirement lifestyle is typical of Samford Grove, where residents live within easy walking distance of Samford township’s shops, cafes and health services.

The team at Ausmar Homes has taken out the Master Builders Queensland award for best ‘Commercial building from $5 million up to $50 million’ for their work on Samford Grove’s community centre, The Homestead!

The prestigious awards showcase excellence in Queensland’s housing and construction industry. Ausmar Homes’ award-winning project was judged across four criteria, including quality workmanship and use of innovative building solutions.

The achievement reflects the quality of The Homestead’s premium amenities that are designed to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for Samford Grove residents. The resort-style centre features everything from a cinema to a lap pool and gymnasium.

With a café, hair and beauty salon, and a large library with an open fireplace, residents can make the most of their retirement without having to leave the community they know and love. As the centrepiece of the Samford Grove community, The Homestead has strengthened community connections and created stunning new spaces for people to spend their time.

Samford Grove’s highly anticipated community expansion has received overwhelming approval from local retirees with all stage one homes and townhomes now sold out.

Construction of stage two has now been fast tracked and is already underway.

Adding to the already strong sense of community spirit, the expansion has included a new recreational facility, The Homestead, and a range of new on-ground homes, multi-level townhomes and low maintenance apartments.

Offering the largest variety of home types within a retirement village anywhere in Brisbane’s north, Samford Grove’s new on-ground homes and townhomes have all been snapped up and only a limited number of apartments remain.

For resident Adele Allan, Samford Grove’s new on-ground homes were the perfect choice for her downsize from her large home of the past 37 years.

“My new home at Samford Grove is lovely. It’s a big difference from living on acreage but it has room for all my furniture and my golden retriever, Coco,” Adele said.

“There was a lot of maintenance required at my old house but now I feel like all those issues are gone and I can concentrate on things I haven’t done in a long time, like nothing at all.

“All of the staff have been wonderful, from the sales team to the receptionist. Nothing is every too much trouble which has made it all very simple and easy.”

Along with the amazing resort-style facilities,  visitors had the opportunity to inspect brand new apartments, townhomes and villas – all while enjoying an action-packed program of fun for all ages.

Free freshly brewed barista coffee, choc-topped ice cream and fairy floss, live music, a jumping castle, face painting, a balloon twister and magician all kept the young and the young at heart entertained.

Visitors also munched their way through a couple of hundred sausages and more than six kilograms of onions as the Rotary Club of Samford Valley kept busy at the barbecue.

Two new display townhomes featuring contemporary light-filled floor plans and expansive views were unveiled on the day as part of a multi-million dollar expansion.

Samford Grove’s new luxury community hub, known as The Homestead, was the centrepiece of the day’s celebrations.

Featuring an amazing array of exclusive facilities including a 21-seat cinema, beauty salon, bar, gym, indoor heated lap pool, private dining room, lounge and library, residents’ kitchen, café, outdoor barbecue and entertainment spaces, it sets a new standard for retirement facilities on Brisbane’s northside.

So many village residents on hand to chat’

Denise Quinlan and her daughter Alison, pictured above, were among the many visitors who came along to discover all that Samford Grove has to offer as well as chat with village residents to gain a first-hand impression.

“I’ve always wanted to have a look,” said Denise. “It was great to see all the facilities and we checked out all the different levels of accommodation.”

“One of the really good things was that there so many village residents on hand to chat to as part of the day – which meant we were able to get a genuine account. We were impressed,” said Alison.

Former Sydneysider and Samford Grove’s newest resident Christina, enjoying the day with daughter Justine and grandson James, above, said that although she had only moved in a week ago she was already getting to know the other residents.

“Everyone is so friendly here,” she said.  “When you buy into somewhere like Samford Grove, you buy into a lifestyle.

“I was living in a large home in Sydney that required a lot of maintenance.  When we sat down to work out all the figures, we were surprised by the amount of savings just on maintenance costs alone.”

Rotary club stalwart Bob Millar said Samford’s genuine sense of community spirit contributed to its enduring appeal.

“It’s such an active community as well, with many popular ways for people of all ages to be involved, including service clubs, a very popular Men’s Shed, as well as an archery and bowls club to name just a few,” he said.

If you’re considering downsizing from your large family home in search of a more suitably sized option, new changes just announced in the Federal Budget could mean a generous boost to your superannuation.

Although the scheme for downsizers has already been in place since 2018, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg has announced the minimum age will be lowered from 65 to 60 meaning more retirees can access the benefit.

The changes will allow those aged 60 and over to contribute up to $300,000 to their superannuation when they sell the family home. The figure doubles for couples – up to $600,000.

In place from 1 July 2022, the change will make it easier for Australians to prepare for retirement and to be more secure once in retirement.

For retirees interested in accessing the superannuation boost before 1 July 2022, the scheme is still available now for those aged over 65.

With no compromise on superior quality, Samford Grove sets a new standard of luxury retirement living. Our apartments and homes offer everything the modern downsizer needs.

At Samford Grove, choose between established homes, brand-new villas, townhomes or apartments – there’s something to suit every lifestyle.
