Resident Profile - Meet Petrie

Petrie has lived and travelled around Australia and overseas much of her life. Petrie was living in Holland before coming back to Australia again a few years ago to be close to her family here again. Petrie had been used to living in big houses with gardens but also in high-rise and apartment buildings in many different cities. She was very pleased to discover a similar apartment lifestyle option for her retirement when coming back to Adelaide. When she found Spence on Light, she fell in love with everything it offers: the cosmopolitan location, the beautiful sunset views from her balcony, the contemporary design of the apartment and friendly neighbours.

Petrie added “I don’t like traffic and I am used to good public transport, so this suits my lifestyle and not needing a car. I’m still working part time for myself and for the University of Adelaide which is walking distance. As I live on the top floor of Spence on Light, I feel as if I now have my own little penthouse.”

Petrie loves having easy access to all that Adelaide CBD has to offer culturally, plus the social interaction with other residents, but also enjoys her own space. She said “The beauty of living in an apartment is that you can be apart when you want to be. It’s so private and yet secure here!”
