For a long time, Canada’s population has been getting older. Baby boomers are beginning to retire or prepare for significant life changes. There was a time phrases such as empty nesters or retirees, implied a low-key life of hobbies and relaxation. Once upon a time, grandparents were thought to age gracefully if they golfed, joined a walking group or baked the best cookies around.
But in recent years things have begun to change. Technology and changes in the economy have made the prospect of retirement less of a defined life event. The semi-retired population continues to increase as work/life balance becomes attainable and highly desirable to both employers and their experienced workers.
More people are downsizing to free up time and resources, to travel or take up new hobbies. Baby boomers are increasingly exchanging their large aging homes and properties, for transitional communities. While still healthy and active, they are freeing themselves from the ongoing maintenance that larger homes and properties require. Many seek tight-knit communities that encourage social experiences and the convenience of in town amenities.
The best transitional communities have a few things that set them apart, and Edgewood Homes believes that our new community High Crest will provide all of these desirable features.
Community spaces and parking
For many in transition, there is a desire for a robust social life. Keeping this in mind the High Crest community plan
incorporates guest parking and a common space for owners to plan social gatherings.
Proximity to Health care
Conveniently located only four minutes from the Huntsville hospital, and adjacent to Chartwell Retirement Residence, High Crest is ideally suited for the health interests that accompany transitional living.
A critical piece for the success of new communities is convenience for day-to-day and leisure activities. Located four minutes to grocery shopping, five minutes from golfing, and six minutes to the boat launch and Hunters Bay Trail, this location is ideal for everyone.
Incorporation of natural elements
Utilizing natures curves and retaining vegetative buffers between High Crest and its closest neighbours will create a community that is as interesting as it is beautiful.
Understanding the transitional demographic is extremely important. We at Edgewood know that many of our owners are specifically looking for bungalow living and will be offering 33 Bungalow Townhomes in our Phase I Release.
Quality selections and service
During the selection process, Edgewood staff have curated an offering of modern clean finishes that come standard. Bearing in mind the transitional element, options to improve accessibility and safety have been incorporated as choices where possible. Our catalogue will clearly indicate items identified to improve quality of living, keeping the process simple and convenient.
Having addressed the initial concerns of traffic flow, the revised site plan at High Crest is slated for public review. With the meeting currently anticipated to occur Mid August, we are getting prepared begin sales starting this Fall.
