With the incredible amenities, fun atmospheres and energetic lifestyles offered by many 55+ communities, it’s no secret why they’ve become such a popular place to call home in the Mid-Atlantic region.
These “active adult communities,” as they’re often called, are all about fun, relaxation and connecting with the people around you. If that sounds like a place you could see yourself calling home, these are four such communities we absolutely recommend you take some time to explore this spring.
Regency at Ashburn (Loudoun County, VA)
Toll Brothers, one of the nation’s leading homebuilders, is no novice when it comes to designing active adult communities. And as the developer of this private, gated community in the heart of Ashburn, VA, they’ve created one of the region’s premier 55+ communities right near the D.C. metro area.
Whether it’s because it includes private clubhouse, pool and fitness center or it’s because it’s all accessible from a supremely luxurious new condo, Regency at Ashburn just makes every day feel like vacation.
Regency at Creekside (Prince William County, VA)
If you’re looking to downsize without having to compromise, you’ll absolutely love what you find at Regency at Creekside in Gainesville, VA.
Toll Brothers offers two luxury single-family home collections that include six distinct home designs at this master-planned community, so you’ll have no problem finding a home that gives you everything you need and more of what you want. Plus, with a 9,000-square-foot clubhouse, pool, tavern, sport courts and miles of walking trails, you’ll never have trouble finding something fun to do when you want to get out and about.
Trilogy at Lake Frederick (Frederick County, VA)
The Trilogy line of communities from Shea Homes is all about authenticity — a place where you can connect with others and share new experiences that will transform your ordinary days into an extraordinary life. Trilogy at Lake Frederick is no exception.
Located just 90 minutes from D.C., this active adult community features new homes from the low $300’s and an enormous expanse of naturally beautiful woodlands. It’s all nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains together with the beautiful Shenandoah Lakeside Lodge and countless opportunities for recreation.
It’s a hidden gem in the Shenandoah Valley, but it’s no secret why it was named one of the best master-planned communities by Where To Retire magazine in 2017.
Heritage Shores (Sussex County, DE)
Developed by Brookfield Residential, Heritage Shores is a 55+ community located in one of the area’s most tax-friendly states.
In addition to its world-class 18-hole golf course, this active community is also home to three on-site restaurants, a fully equipped wellness center, an 18,000-square-foot clubhouse, plenty of sport courts and so much more. And because it features stylish, accessible home designs from both Brookfield Residential and Ryan Homes, you know you’ll have a fantastic place to come home to after every full day of fun.
