My wife and I moved to Melbourne from a small community in rural Victoria.  We built a home in the Bridgewater Lake Retirement Estate and we were thrilled with the flexibility offered to tweak the design of our home to best suit us.  Since moving in three months ago we have enjoyed many of the facilities, including Club Bridgewater, bowls, water aerobics and the café.  We have made new friends and found the residents warm, friendly and inviting.  The staff have been great in helping us settle into our new home and the Melbourne environment.  I think in choosing the Bridgewater Lake Retirement Estate my wife and I have made one of the best decisions of our lives.
