We also own/live in an older (by 15 years) Del Webb community in central Florida.
Pulte listened to every improvement we suggested and built models in Carolina Arbors with more storage, easier access to the attic (optional), larger closets, bigger kitchens, better floor plans, optional basements, and optional second floors.
From the gorgeous clubhouse and fitness center to the grass dog park, Carolina Arbors is fabulous and the residents are warm and welcoming.
And the location! Unlike many Del Webbs, CA is moments away from Brier Creek!
Love it!! ♥️
