Welcome to our occasional weekend newsletter, which focuses on interesting active adult and 55+ communities and the issues surrounding them.
The photo above shows the marina at Hawthorne at Leesburg, a cooperatively owned community near Leesburg, Florida.
The member input to our article about what people want in a retirement community was so rich that we thought we would take that idea to another level. Specifically, if you were the chief designer of the home you build for your retirement, what would it be like - for type of home, outside design, interior features, and materials? We are particularly interested in the differences between what boomer guys and gals want in their next homes.
We invite you to explore more communities - there are over 1500 in this directory:
The origin of Hawthorne at Leesburg is one of the most interesting we've seen. It was founded jointly by the AARP, the National Teachers Association, and an insurance co. This cooperatively owned community is on a river with a marina, more than 1100 homes, and a lot of nice people.
Heather Gardens - Aurora, CO
Heather Gardens near Denver has a lot of the usual good things going for it: there's a 9 hole golf course, more than 100 leisure activities, indoor and outdoor pools. Prices are reasonable, and it's a mile from a light rail station.
Windsor Hills - The Woodlands, TX
