After spending 20 years living in a large family home, followed by another 10 years in a 3-bedroom multi-level townhouse, Sylvia and Richard decided it was time to leave the empty nest in search of a low-maintenance alternative.

With the family all grown up, the new Live City residents decided to swap house maintenance for a convenient, one-bedroom apartment close to everything they need and love.

“We’ve never lived in an apartment before but we don’t need such a big house anymore for just the two of us,” Sylvia said.

“Because we’re getting older we wanted to move somewhere with less housework involved so we looked at quite a few apartments around Melbourne.”

“We really liked Live City because it’s so close to the city and the apartment was very well laid out. It’s very modern and the kitchen is also quite generous compared to other apartments we saw.”

It wasn’t just the apartment design that attracted Sylvia and Richard. The couple enjoy heading out on the weekends so being located in Footscray also came with a lot of benefits for their lifestyle.

“Because we won’t be spending time looking after the house, we’ll have more time for ourselves,” Sylvia said.

“We like to go to the casino and out for dinner or to see a movie. We’re so much closer to the city now compared to our last house which was near the airport so it’s very easy.”

“When our family comes to visit there are plenty of great parks nearby which our grandson will love. Footscray is also a very multi-cultural area while we really like a lot.”

Downsizing for Sylvia and Richard was also about extra peace of mind. The couple enjoy travelling interstate on short holidays which they say is now easier than ever.

“We like to travel instate every so often on a long weekend and we used to worry about leaving our big house empty for that long, Sylvia said.

“Now that we’re living here we don’t worry about going away. We enjoy having that extra security and peace of mind. It’s just right for us.”
