The Elements story began in 2003 when founder Chiou See Anderson secured the block in the Daisy Hill koala habitat with a vision of building a retirement village that is a community within a community.
The village was painstakingly planned and designed to promote resident wellbeing in five key areas; physical, spiritual, social, psychological and financial.
In 2010 the vision came to life when Elements Retirement Living at Springwood opened its doors and welcomed its first residents.
Chiou See Anderson’s hand-on approach to management and close relationships with Elements’ residents has seen the success of her design philosophy evolve to include 123 single storey villas hidden among a spacious 48,100m2 of land.
You may have heard of the term, Third Age Living. Elements is retirement living for this stage of your life.
To help achieve that fuller enjoyment of life during your third age, the design and development of retirement living at Elements has looked at all the “elements” Physical, Spiritual, Social, Psychological and Financial.
At Elements, we have designed a beautiful Clubhouse on the edge of the Daisy Hill Forest dedicated to our residents' physical wellbeing.

Elements is conveniently located in close proximity to a variety of places of worship of any religious denomination. We have compiled a list of churches, temples and mosques in our vicinity. Additionally, for those times when you want to simply walk out your door and retreat for a moment of relaxation and a place to think quietly and possibly ponder upon life, we have created a Japanese-inspired Zen garden. It is a haven to escape to and perhaps find some peace and harmony.
The garden is complete with water features, a bridge and is filled with colorful planting which on the one hand is beautiful and relaxing and on the other hand, stimulates the mind’s creative side. It's yours to enjoy.
Entertaining at home is a pleasure with our generous courtyards/balconies with parking for your visitors.
Your grandchildren will love the pool and wide safe streets to cycle or scooter in.
There are many social events at Elements to enjoy including weekly 'happy hour' drinks on a Friday afternoon, craft and chat, music and singing groups, catching up in the community gardens, or a game of cards at the work shed or community centre.
It’s well proven being outdoors and in nature is good for mental wellbeing and you have access to the beautiful Daisy Hill Forest walking paths.
Club Elements plays host to a diverse range of activities from University for the Third Age (U3A) classes to public seminars covering topics like Living with Alzheimer’s and Advanced Care Planning.
We support local clubs, charities and volunteer groups and encourage residents to stay involved to stay mentally active.
At Elements we recognise the importance of maintaining financial well being and independence.
We have kept our starting base price below the median house price with our two bedroom homes starting at $480,000. In most cases, this will allow you to sell your existing house and have enough equity to move into your brand new home which has been specifically designed and built for you at Elements.
We have adopted water wise and power wise measures to ensure that your monthly fees are minimised.
