- Premier builder David Weekley is developing a new 55+ community in Chapel Hill, North Carolina this year that’s designed for active retirees. Encore at Briar Chapel will provide Baby Boomers with an intimate setting of 185 low-maintenance single-family homes within the master-planned Briar Chapel community. In addition to a private clubhouse in the 55+ neighborhood, homeowners will also have access to the master-planned amenities found throughout Briar Chapel for an invigorating and vibrant lifestyle year round.
- Getting around Heritage Shores is a lot easier these days thanks to the most recent Decero Designed York Timber Structure from York Bridge Concepts (YBC). This luxurious 55+ community recently unveiled a state-of-the-art waterfront timber promenade that winds along the lake at Heritage Shores.
- Excitement continues to build around Trilogy at Ocala Preserve’s second clubhouse - Oak House. With construction underway at Trilogy’s second clubhouse, residents and prospective homebuyers can visit the community to get a glimpse at the progress of Oak House during sneak peek tours every other Friday for a limited time. These exclusive tours offered by Shea Homes will allow people to see the construction progress first-hand while walking through the clubhouse grounds and learning about the rich amenities that will be offered in all of the spaces.
- A new 55+ community is coming to the Boston area in 2017 called Four Winds at Union Point. This age-restricted neighborhood, which will be located at the former South Weymouth Naval Air Station, will be specifically designed for Baby Boomers who want to live a vibrant, active lifestyle.
- Summer is over, but that doesn't mean that fun in the sun needs to come to an end. In fact, it's easy to argue that autumn is the very best time to enjoy the great outdoors. With the heat of summer past, but before the frigid winter cold has settled in, fall is the perfect compromise. Plus, it tends to be a bit drier (and less muddy) than the spring! If you're looking for some perfect ways to take advantage of fresh air before you'll need to bundle up to do so, here are five fantastic ideas.
- Master-planned communities are becoming more popular for retirement because they not only include 55+ subdivisions, but they also offer everything a homeowner could want or need within its community boundaries. Some of the best master-planned communities are typically built around resort-style amenities like golf courses, tennis courts, clubhouses, outdoor pools, and recreational areas, which appeal to many active adults. But some developers are taking it one step further by including jaw-dropping amenities like zip lines, organic gardens, and zoos within their master-planned communities that set them apart from the rest. If you’re looking for something extraordinary to do during your Golden Years then check out these master-planned communities with unique amenities.
- It can often seem as though the shift from our parents’ generation to our own is more than just a generational change. Indeed, it is our generation which came of age as the digital age came into being, and our adulthood has been shaped by the new information age in which we live. And so too will the differences of the 21st century affect our retirement. There's no reason to rely solely on the pastimes of our parents’ days of retirement, which too often was looked at as an ending. Instead, with access to the technology that this new millennium affords us, there are so many new pursuits to try that retirement can only be looked at as a new beginning.
