Irene and Ken Elliott Another of the couples to take advantage of the ‘Early Bird’ discounts and incentives on offer in Halcyon Landing’s Foundation Release is Ken and Irene Elliott. With Irene overseas on a special holiday with one of the couple’s grandchildren, we caught up with Ken for a chat about moving to Halcyon’s latest lifestyle community. Put simply, the Elliotts are literally counting down the days until their new home is completed and they can move in. “We’re absolutely rapt in the whole concept at Halcyon Landing, and we’ve already met about half a dozen of our new neighbours,” said Ken. So excited about this new phase in their lives, Ken loves nothing more these days than suiting up in his leathers and jumping on his BMW Sports Tourer, heading up the Highway to check out the latest progress at Bli Bli. Funnily enough, when they move into their Coolum design home, one of the allnew designs unique to Halcyon Landing, 3 Life begins at Halcyon Early Bird Elliotts are rapt in Halcyon Landing the Elliotts will actually be up-sizing! With the range of choices available, they were immediately drawn to the Coolum home design for its contemporary lines and a handy one and a half car garage that’s perfect for the bike. “We’re really looking forward to living in the open plan layout,” said Ken. Having spent a number of years in Sydney before taking early retirement at 55, the Elliotts initially moved to the Sunshine State before ‘un-retiring’ to work together overseas. The couple managed a business supplying and servicing generators in Bangladesh for two years and then went on to help train nationals in small business development among less advantaged communities in Bangladesh, India, Egypt and Thailand amongst others. Describing this period of their lives as both “rewarding and a great experience,” they were keen to come back to Brisbane to set up a new home base with a view to spending time doing more of the things they wanted. After eleven years on and off living in a villa complex at Carindale, the Elliotts got itchy feet again, this time focussing their attention on the Sunshine Coast. Then about six months ago while on a weekend drive scouting around the Sunshine Coast, Ken and Irene spotted a billboard for Halcyon Landing. “Straight away we both thought this could be for us,” said Ken. “We knew about Halcyon because we actually helped a friend move into Halcyon Waters at Hope Island a few years ago. Back then we were really impressed with what we saw, so we couldn’t believe our luck when we found out they were building a new community on the Sunshine Coast.” Another reason the Elliotts chose Halcyon Landing was for the location right in the centre of the Sunshine Coast. “It’s so central and close to everything we need.” As for the future, Ken is looking forward to long rides through the beautiful Sunshine Coast hinterland. Then it’s home to safely garage the bike before catching up with new friends and neighbours at the Rec Club. Irene loves the idea of being part of a new community and plans to get involved in special interest groups, and enjoy some long walks with their Bichon Frise ‘Jazz.’ Another reason the Elliotts chose Halcyon Landing was for the location right in the centre of the Sunshine Coast. “It’s so central and close to everything we need.”
