Stylin’ Martha Stewart Goes Active Adult Community

Category: Active adult communities

Bulletin: 25 Best Places to Retire (follow this story to find link). If you are one of those folks who loves Martha Stewart, your new retirement community dream just got a lot more interesting That’s right, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and KB Home have teamed up to create an active community for adults 55 and over in La Quinta, California. LaQuinta is one of the fanciest neighborhoods in Palm Springs.

“I’m very excited about our newest Martha Stewart community with KB Home created especially for mature adults who lead active lives,” said Martha Stewart. “As in all of our communities, these homes will be affordable and beautifully designed with an eye to practical details.”

Designer Cupcakes
To celebrate the occasion approximately 100 guests and local officials gathered in full Martha-mode. Topretirements was sorry to not only have missed a fancy luncheon, but we’re we especially mourn the opportunity to participate in a cupcake-decorating contest judged by Martha Stewart. Stewart chose winners who received gift baskets including an autographed copy of her latest book, Martha Stewart’s Cooking School.

The community will feature one -story ranch style homes ranging in size from 1,300 to 1,800 square feet, offering two to three bedrooms, two to three baths, and two-car garages. The community will be gated and include an expansive clubhouse. The homes will feature new exterior elevations inspired by Martha Stewart’s many trips to Mexico, and the local landscape. Classic California Spanish style facades will be enhanced with ceramic tile work, awnings, eight foot shutters and expansive covered patios with great outdoor living spaces. The interiors will be open, cool and bright, with thoughtful design options like wainscoting, picture-frame molding, open shelving, and bead board. The community is projected to open in fall 2009, and KB Home is taking names now.

The homes in La Quinta will also be environmentally friendly. All homes will be ENERGY STAR® qualified and engineered to heat and cool efficiently and use less energy resources. Additionally, all homes will include low-E windows and ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances.

  2. it doesn’t appear the community in La Quinta as is mentioned in the blog article was ever built. However, there is a Martha Stewart community that we have on our site -Twin Lakes, in Cary NC.

    And there appears to be another community- Hampton Oaks in Fairborn, GA but they do not have a website but there is information if it is Googled with real estate agencies.
