Reasons to Move to a 55+ Community Now and Not Later

At Cornerstone Homes, we believe in the magic of simplifying your life. In any one of our low maintenance communities across Virginia, you can wake up every morning knowing that new opportunities and experiences are waiting for you wherever you go. And you have more time to savor your newfound freedom.

You don’t have to be retired to move to a 55+ community. Yes, many people have already made the big move, but there are so many ways that "right-sizing" your life before you retire can significantly improve your health, happiness, and well-being. Whether you’re currently retired or will be in the future, take a look at our top reasons that moving to a 55+ community in Virginia really does and can change your life: 

Happier and Healthier Lifestyle

Our 55+ communities make it easy to stay active and healthy. Enjoy a lifestyle enhanced with fantastic health and wellness amenities that can only be found in a Cornerstone Home community.  A clubhouse for gathering and enjoying meals together, fitness center to stay in shape, pool and outdoor grills for cookouts (and exercise!).  Walking trails, sidewalks, and numerous outdoor gathering areas to enjoy nature or catch up with friends.  Corner Patch Gardens, our professionally maintained community gardens with fresh veggies, fruits, herbs, and flowers are just steps from your front door.  Or a community built around a professionally managed 10-acre farm.   Whatever makes you happy!  

Low Maintenance and Homes Built with Timely and Lasting Features

At Cornerstone Homes, we believe that life is best lived when you can dedicate your time to yourself — that’s why we take care of yard work and exterior maintenance for you.   And, our homes are built for easy and comfortable living now and in the future.  Extra wide doorways, no thresholds, open living concepts, comfort height counters and toilets, and other safe and secure features. Features you can’t find in older homes! 

Meet New People 

Finally, it’s your time to choose exactly what you do and have fun doing it. Think of this adventure as a new style of living — one that’s focused on you. From social events, clubs, and classes to cooking demos and tastings,  to private courtyard get-togethers, there are so many ways to interact and connect with your like-minded neighbors. At Cornerstone Homes, we believe that connecting with friends and family makes you happier.   And happier means healthier.  

Strong Sense of Community

One of the many things that sets Cornerstone Homes apart is the strong sense of community that’s cultivated among neighbors from the start.   Just the right size so when you move here, you have an instant social circle.   You will automatically feel a sense of camaraderie with people who are in the same stage of life as you and are ready to explore and have fun.

Lock and Leave

In every Cornerstone Homes community, we offer the “Lock and Leave” lifestyle that lets you travel  without having to worry about the upkeep of your home, like cutting the grass or pulling weeds. No matter if you’re gone for three months or three days, you’ll never sacrifice a single moment of joy on your trip.  Now is your chance to check off that vacation on your bucket list! 

Happiness is contagious.  And at a Cornerstone Homes community, the lifestyle you will experience brings out the very best in life.  There are so many reasons to love living here.   Click here to see 55 reasons why our homeowners love where they live.  

Moving to one of our 55+ communities in VA is one of the best decisions you’ll make, and you’ll soon be asking yourself, “Why didn’t I do this sooner!"  Take that first step to a more fulfilling life now.  And speaking of sooner, click to see  Quick Move In Homes and Model Homes for sale in these communities:   Chickahominy Falls in Hanover County, Virginia; The Grove in Chesterfield, Virginia; The Cove in Chester, Virginia and Barley Woods in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
