Enjoying the lifestyle
While coming to live at Carseldine was Pat’s dream, her husband Les is another of the village’s biggest advocates.
“You could never find surroundings [like this] of nature to look at,” he says.
“It’s like you’re out in the bush here.”
“There’s no gardening. There’s no painting the house. Maintaining the house. Maintaining the yard. There’s none of that. It’s all done for us,” Les adds.
“It’s relaxing. You can make your life as hard or as soft as you like.”
“There’s always something to do. The chapel, the swimming pool. And there are mountains and mountains of activities you can do.”
“If you want to start a chess club for example. You find a half dozen people and you’re right. That’s what’s good about this place.”
“Best decision we ever made.”
