Southern Cross Care's Thornton Park retirement village is set on a quiet tree-lined street close to the Penrith Central Business District. It offers a range of spacious one, two and three-bedroom apartments.
However, it's the sense of community that appeals to many residents, especially those who want to connect with others and enjoy the friendly village lifestyle the new development offers.
Residents have access to a cafe serving coffee and light meals, along with a hairdressing and beauty salon, library, media room, multi-purpose community centre and a rooftop barbecue terrace and hobby garden.
Thornton Park was cleverly designed to bring people together but also allows you to retreat to your own private oasis when you choose.
All the apartments feature contemporary, open plan living spaces that lead onto spacious balconies for indoor-outdoor living at its finest. The quality is evident in the details, with beautiful contemporary finishes of wood, stone and textured floor coverings, complimented by high-end European fixtures and appliances.
Lorraine and Robert Greig are residents at Thornton Park and are living their best lives with real peace of mind.
"It's so nice knowing that as part of a community, we'll always have someone to talk to," Lorraine said.
"It wasn't like that at home, where things were much more quiet. The kids were working, and we were often on our own. One of the other things that really puts my mind at ease is that if Rob or I got sick, or our circumstances changed, there's an aged care facility about two seconds away - it's brand new and lovely."
The Thornton Park retirement village is located alongside a new 100-suite state-of-the-art residential care home. This is particularly convenient when one partner needs to move into full-time care, while the other can continue to live independently in an adjacent retirement village apartment.
Thornton Park is a relaxing retirement oasis that feels a world away yet is within walking distance of all that a cosmopolitan centre like Penrith has to offer.
