Many older adults share a close-kept secret: the retirement years can be an especially fulfilling and invigorating phase of life. Their children have moved on to establish families and careers, the demands of the workplace are finally behind them, and, after many years of responding to other people’s needs and expectations, they finally have the freedom to pursue their own interests.
Whatever seniors’ passions may be, their opportunities to explore them are even greater if they don’t have the chores and burdens of homeownership tugging at their time. This realization persuades many seniors to make the move to a retirement community, and it’s a decision that few regret. In fact, those who choose the maintenance-free lifestyle available at Fieldstone Villas at Sunset Village quickly discover that a very bright future of possibilities lies ahead.
Gayle Young, Director of Marketing, Communications and Public Relations for Sunset Retirement Communities, emphasizes that Fieldstone Villas residents can expect their monthly fee to cover all aspects of home maintenance, both inside and outside, including lawn care and snow removal, preventive maintenance, appliance repair and other repairs associated with home ownership, and even bi-monthly housekeeping. “Our residents are thrilled to leave behind all those chores, which in the coming warmer months can mean a lot of lawn maintenance, allowing them more free time to pursue the activities and pastimes that bring joy and fulfillment to their lives,” she adds.
Fieldstone Villas at Sunset Village was launched in the fall of 2016 with six villas, 12 units in all, and it wasn’t long before those original villas were occupied by independent seniors. So, to meet this overwhelming demand, Sunset began construction on five new villas (10 homes in total), which were unveiled to the public in June of 2019. Those homes have been selling quickly, but a few units from the new phase of construction are still available in this Life Plan Community (formerly called a CCRC) that redefines the traditional image of senior living. “When we finished construction on the first phase of villas, we knew interest would be high, and that proved true beyond our expectations. Those original homes filled up quickly, so we’ve constructed additional villas to ensure that more area seniors have the opportunity to experience the flourishing, maintenance-free, independent lifestyle that the Fieldstone Villas community has to offer,” explains Young.
Several different villa styles are represented at Fieldstone Villas at Sunset Village. Ranging in size from just over 1,200 square feet to 1,800 square feet, each barrier-free home includes a full kitchen with all new appliances, two bedrooms, two baths, and a gas fireplace. All the homes also feature a two-car garage, with the exception of the smallest floorplan, which has a one-car garage.
Residents of Fieldstone Villas at Sunset Village also enjoy access to the community’s clubhouse, which opened in 2018. The clubhouse features an indoor swimming pool, an area for exercising, chef-prepared dinners served to residents Monday through Friday, and ample opportunities to gather and socialize with friends and family.
