A Community Clubhouse
At Whittingham, the 30,000 square-foot clubhouse is the central hub of social and recreational activity. Shared with residents of the adjacent Greenbriar community, the clubhouse features Federal-style architecture with mature landscaping and an impressive porte-cochere entry. Its beautifully appointed library and billiards and card rooms create a comfortable atmosphere for socializing, while the Tap Room restaurant is an ideal spot to share a meal with friends. Hobbyists can express their creativity in the arts and crafts center, which includes a woodworking shop and pottery studio.
The clubhouse also contains a large fitness center with state-of-the-art cardiovascular and strength-training equipment, an aerobics studio, and an indoor pool which is ringed by a second-story indoor walking track. After a workout, residents can relax in the spa or sauna.
Residents who enjoy outdoor recreation have many options at Whittingham. During the warm summer months, the outdoor swimming pool and surrounding sundeck is a popular gathering place. Sports courts support tennis, bocce, basketball, and shuffleboard, while resident golfers can play a round on the 9-hole course or practice at the putting green. There is even a shaded picnic area and a lot for RV parking.
Since Whittingham shares a clubhouse with the adjacent Greenbriar community, the two communities are often collectively called Greenbriar at Whittingham, but they maintain separate homeowners associations. Lawn care, snow removal, and community maintenance are all included through each of the respective homeowners' associations.
