Single family attached home community in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Attached homes mean less maintenance and lower energy costs.

There are plenty of reasons for active adults to look at attached homes, such as condos and townhouses, when moving to a 55+ community. As an empty nester, more space isn’t just unnecessary, it’s a hindrance. All that empty space means higher energy costs and more time spent on maintenance and cleaning.

If you’re hoping to be near the excitement and entertainment of Philadelphia, here are some 55+ communities with attached homes that should be on your radar.
