Active Adult +55 Communities Got It All!
Many people over 55 feel like they are living in a house that is too big or not properly laid out, has too much upkeep, or just does not provide them with the lifestyle they want or need. Adult communities are often a great compromise for individuals that still want to live on their own, but want to live in a community that will offer them fun as well as support from people their age.
Active adult communities are for households that have at least one member over the age of 55. Most of these communities offer low maintenance housing with one level living areas. A lot of these communities offer planned activities for socializing as well as access to the outdoors. Some of the adult communities offer condos, single-family homes, or even beautiful villa style residences. Some of the real estate is so beautiful that these active older adults will feel as though they are living in a resort!
Active adult communities are not hard to find at all. In fact, builders know that most active adults want to remain close to the city or town that they have been living in. Because of this they keep the communities right in or outside of major areas. For instance, in the Washington area there are several adult communities in Loudoun, and Prince William County. There are also other active adult communities being built in Dunbarton and Braemar. Having the community nearby will allow active adults to take advantage of the activities and lifestyle offered by such a community. It also allows them to continue with activities outside of the community as well as nurture existing relationships with friends and family.
The features will vary from community to community but a great example of what active adults will find in these communities can be seen in The Dunbarton Club outside of Washington. The club overlooks Broad Run and has an indoor pool and spa that can be used year around, a expanse fitness center, game and meeting rooms, as well as a professional business center and even a parlor! Residents will also be able to take advantage of marvelously landscaped grounds that include tennis courts, putting greens, bocce and shuffleboard courts, as well as gorgeous hiking and biking trails. The Club will also organize several social events for the residents to mingle and get to know new people and try new things.
Prices on homes in these active adult communities will vary from community to community all around the country. Specifically in the Dunbarton area prices start at about $350,000 and go up to almost $500,000 depending on the type of home one wants.
