55 + Communities

With so many active adult communities offering great amenities, homes, and social activities, it’s easy to see why Baby Boomers are making their move into 55+ communities across the Triangle. Homeowners in these active adult communities have access to beautiful clubhouses, walking and biking trails, on-site lifestyle directors, and endless social and recreational activities that keep them active and busy no matter what day of the week it is. These vibrant environments provide the ideal setting for anyone age 55 or better who wish to remain active, both physically and socially.

Active adult neighborhoods provide a sense of community with other like-minded adults in a welcoming and friendly setting. Baby Boomers can mingle and share their hobbies with others by participating in card clubs, writing groups, fitness classes, or faith-based studies for a robust social lifestyle while fostering lifelong friendships. Another reason why retirees are choosing to move into active adult communities is to be close to family. Additionally, the majority of age-restricted developments are built near prime locations like Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, and Wake Forest. There is usually easy access to highways and medical facilities as well as entertainment, shopping, and dining options.

Premier builders like Del Webb, AV Homes, Epcon Communities, Toll Brothers, Lennar, and others offer floor plans that cater to 55+ citizens by including features like zero-step entries, wide doorways, single-level homes, and energy-efficient construction. With homeowners having fewer exterior home chores to worry about, they can reap all of the benefits of living in a 55+ community. Residents have more time to pursue new hobbies or interests and take advantage of all of the amenities and recreational facilities offered in these exciting active adult developments.
