We moved here in October of 2017 and I could not be more pleased with our purchase. The community is everything I thought it would be and more. Ellen Kaptain was our Realtor and did a fantastic job for us. The Club House is fantastic and while I have yet to use the pool, I can not wait for summer. It is smaller than the other 55 and older communities, but that is a plus. Everyone you meet is so friendly and helpful.I can only see me leaving here when I go feet first.

55 Places website was so easy to find when I started my search for a new home. I love everything about Ardiente, the people, the facility, the activities and most important I feel secure and finally at home.

Great place to live. It's an active and fun community. Pickleball twice a week with four courts. Great clubhouse with wifi, kitchen, awesome gym, steam sauna, two heated pools plus a jacuzzi, 2 outdoor barbque gas grills for residents near covered area by pool. Lots of community scheduled activities, and geographically near lots of fun places.

We have one of the newer homes built by Shea and we're really happy with it. The prices are affordable and the homes are really well built. We use the clubhouse often and we are involved with (or have at least tried) lots of different clubs like the poker club, dominoes and pickleball. I kind of wish we had a golf course on-site but of course there are plenty of other courses in the area to play and we do have a nice putting green here.
