Exciting things are happening at Kissing Tree. This popular 55+ community in San Marcos, Texas is unveiling even more unique amenities in 2020. Kissing Tree currently offers a clubhouse like no other, giving residents access to many uncommon amenities, including a biergarten and a live-music stage.
This year, homeowners can look forward to the opening of a brand-new pool and fitness center. Read on to learn more about these new amenities coming to Kissing Tree in 2020.
A New Pool and Fitness Center
Kissing Tree broke ground on an innovative new pool and fitness center that's unlike anything else found in Austin's active adult communities. With design elements that bring the outdoors inside, this project will create a unique spa-like atmosphere for residents and their guests. The fitness center will include locker rooms, a movement room, and an indoor lap pool. The outdoor pool will feature lounge seating, sunning sofas, and a jacuzzi.
Whether homeowners want to work out or socialize with friends, they’ll feel right at home in the modern atmosphere that features living walls and plenty of greenspace. Residents who have come to know and love the community’s Welcome Center and Independence Hall will enjoy knowing that the project is being put together by the same interior designer: Jenelle Lovings of Creative License International.
Lovings says that she tapped into nostalgia for some of the project’s abstract design elements, such as oversized dimensional figures doing activities such as working out or swimming. As far as design elements, Lovings particularly enjoys the sofas that sit on the sun shelf in the pool area. In the fitness center, Lovings likes the bold graphic on the wall and the area’s fun tile patterns.
The Kissing Tree pool and fitness center uniquely blend indoor and outdoor elements and provide the look and feel of a spa. Residents can move effortlessly from the outside to the inside, whether they’re relaxing at the pool, chatting with neighbors, or doing some yoga while facing wide-open doors that allow sunlight to stream into the studio.
The outdoor, resort-style pool features in-water lounge chairs, abundant shaded seating, an infinity edge, a beach entry, and party cabanas. Residents can also enjoy fire features and a separate jacuzzi area.
Kissing Tree plans for construction on the outdoor pool to be completed in Summer 2020. The indoor pool is projected to be open early this year.
