Rest assured that at Clifton Old Bar you’re in experienced hands. Clifton Lifestyle is a specialist developer, owner and operator of active lifestyle resorts for over 55s. Our master-planned developments offer beautiful new homes and resort-style facilities in friendly and harmonious settings.
We care about the people who choose to live in our communities, so we do all we can to design facilities that meet the needs of over 55s and to foster friendly and supportive cultures within our resorts.
At Clifton Lifestyle, we maintain a strong social conscience and operate with the highest levels of integrity and good faith. We do all we can to protect our residents’ financial futures by offering luxury at affordable prices, and operating with a simple, fair and transparent business model.
Clifton Lifestyle is a member of the Land Lease Living Industry Association NSW.
The three of us – Kenny, Richard and Dean – came together with a vision to create a new standard in land lease community living for over 55s.
We had a shared belief that the traditional retirement village model in this country was fundamentally flawed, with its complex financial structures – including deferred management fees and capital gain sharing for operators – which have proven to be financially onerous for thousands of residents and their families.
We felt that these traditional retirement villages weren’t giving over 55s a fair go, and we shared a firm belief that land lease communities – with their simple, fair and transparent business model – provide a far superior alternative for the modern retiree.
Drawing on over 50 years of combined experience in property investment and development, architecture and design, home building and construction, property finance, and the development and operation of lifestyle communities for over 55s, we established the Clifton Lifestyle brand.
Our mission was to establish ourselves as a new benchmark for affordable luxury in the land lease community sector, through the delivery of world class, purpose-built lifestyle resorts.
The three of us share a strong social conscience and we are genuinely motivated by a desire to contribute positively to society and to help our residents improve their lives, through the following key features of the Clifton Lifestyle offering:
• We offer luxury at affordable prices, allowing over 55s to downsize into a beautiful new designer home and enjoy resort-style facilities, whilst still freeing up capital to supplement their retirement savings.
• We operate with a simple and fair business model which helps our residents to protect their financial futures.
• We recognise the enormous value of community and friendship. Our resorts give residents the opportunity to become part of friendly, thriving and supportive communities of like-minded over 55s.
• As a developer, owner and operator of lifestyle resorts, we are committed to operating with the highest levels of integrity and good faith at all times.
We are deeply passionate about what we do, and we are excited about delivering on this vision, helping our residents to truly get the most out of their retirement years.
