Retirement Homes With Pizazz.

I recently tour the 10 model homes set up in the  Levitt & Sons new Active Adults 55 Plus communities on Lake Lanier in Northeast Georgia.  A number of features were impressive and nice to see all in each home. Each was decorated with dazzling style, even flamboyance. 

Besides the furnishing, they were build with the livable designs in mind, those things that make a home more livable, that is more comfortable, easier and safer for independent living. These were nice!

Most were ranch style homes (one level) with no steps.  A deck or screened porch is also a nice feature when you are spending a lot of time at home. This gives up a place to go outside the normal living space to breathe some fresh air and get a change of pace.

Several have finished basements suites to die for!  One had a large bar, pool table, game table, and full bath and bedroom for guests. Some had a full media room complete with stadium chairs. These terrace levels didn’t look like a basement at all. They had nice Berber carpet, recessed lightening, and colorful walls trimmed expertly. Bay and other windows gave plenty of lights and visuals to the outside.

The back yards had fireplace, sitting groups, gazebo and professional landscaping.

Interior floor plans include the open kitchen, an extra room or two that could be used as a den family room, or office.

These active adult communities really are offering up some attractive features that us baby boomers will appreciate.
