Hi everyone, my wife and I are retirement age and we are looking for a nice quiet place to live. We live on the Central Coast of NSW right now and our suburb is younger to middle age working class. All in all not too bad except for one thing, there are more and more kids being born into the suburb and they are very noisy. All I hear is skateboards, footballs and kids screaming from the street all day and I think it's time for us to move somewhere quiet.
We lived in apartments in Sydney before and it was much more quiet than living in a house, reason being not many couples with kids lived in them.
We are a child free quiet couple who keeps to themselves. No wild parties or domestic arguments from our house.
Where can we go? What kind of retirement living can anyone recommend? We understand kids will be kids so our desire is to live in a place/location where it is essentially a child free zone.
Happy to go into a retirement place if need be
Happy to live in a quiet apartment block
Prefer somewhere warm (Tasmania would be too cold for us)
Must have shopping not more than 10 minutes walk away
Prefer an area with a train station or regular transport within walking distance
Must have a public hospital within a 30 minute drive
Must have local GP's in the area
An area with low crime rate, little graffiti and have a clean respectful community
Any ideas would be appreciated, even overseas is not ruled out. Quiet is our first and foremost requirement.
