Active Adult 55+ Communities | Triangle Area

Active Adult 55+ Communities in the Triangle Greater Raleigh area are growing fast because who wouldn’t want to retire in the Triangle? As our community grows we find more older adults moving into the area, often following their children, so we shouldn’t be surprised by seeing large developers like Del Webb and Epcon putting developments in all parts of this region.

One popular type of home within these communities is Ranch homes. Ranch homes are single-story homes that offer a convenient layout and are typically designed to be easily accessible for seniors. These homes often feature open floor plans, wide doorways, and low thresholds, which are ideal for retirees who may have mobility or accessibility concerns. Additionally, ranch homes offer the added benefit of having all of the living spaces on one level, eliminating the need to navigate stairs.
