Here is the best of both worlds for 55+ buyers: upscale new homes with luxury club amenities and a charming enclave location in a thriving master plan. Boutique concepts address transitioning lifestyles, with four single-level plans of up to three bedrooms, plus diverse, optional lofts for all plans.

Views, volumes, and great rooms generate expansive, light-filled ambience in every home. Patio yards and outdoor access strengthen resort ambience, and maximize everyday enjoyment and social gatherings. Bar seating highlights sleek island kitchens; some homes feature separate dining.

LED lighting and WiFi controls are among the builder’s smart home features, optimizing savings, comfort, and convenience. Moderate density and smaller lots support attainable pricing; thoughtful window placements optimize views and privacy. Steep roof pitches, stamped concrete, wood details, and rich palettes enhance a cost-effective stucco base.

A private club provides versatile indoor/outdoor amenities: a resort style pool/spa, outdoor kitchen, a lounge and social bar with personal wine lockers, a community garden, a fitness center, and WiFi stations. Connectivity with four family neighborhoods underscores a vibrant environment of open spaces, parks, and trailheads, and a recreational/social center for all residents. Dining, retail, entertainment, and services are minutes away.

From the Judges
This community has been thoughtfully designed, and judges particularly appreciated the separate 55+ amenities and central green space connection from all the cul-de-sacs. The architecture fits within its surroundings and is very nicely done.
