THE STORY

The architecture and planning of this community aims for unique character and a neighborhood backdrop that generates diverse opportunities for casual and planned social interface. Innovative concepts were vital for economic viability on a small, triangular site. Each home provides first-level living for the 55+ Active Adult market. Raised front porches yield outdoor entertainment space and connection to the commons that strengthens community. Luxurious owners’ suites and flexible guest, tech, office, den, bonus or loft spaces highlight well-differentiated floorplans. Thoughtful attention to aging in place includes accessible interiors and side or back entrances that accommodate wheelchairs. One plan features an optional elevator. Updated bungalow court concept strengthens desirable internal focus and supplies garages for all homes, plus additional parking for guests.

 

All homes also feature private, fenced yards. In two-story form, a Craftsman style promotes a modest silhouette.  Four-sided architecture and intricate, reversible color schemes add depth and richness to every vantage point. Community garden, commissioned artwork, outdoor kitchen and a community room with kitchen complete unified concepts that treat shared areas as inviting, natural extensions of individual living spaces.
