Sisters Make the Perfect Housemates!
There’s nothing quite like the love shared between sisters… At one Cornerstone Homes community, three sisters are sharing this love with each other in their Canterburyhome and proving just how strong a sibling bond can truly be. We caught up with Ruenette, Lorraine, and Elaine recently to hear their story of living together and how The Canterbury is the perfect home for all their lifestyle needs.
Before moving to the charming Villas at Ashlake in Chesterfield, Virginia, Ruenette, Lorraine, and Elaine lived together in New Jersey. Lorraine was more than eager to get out of the city. While she didn’t want to live without her sisters (and best friends), she knew she wanted a private and peaceful community to call home.
Soon enough, Elaine and Lorraine decided it was time to make the move as well.
Ruenette’s daughter and son-in-law, who lives near the Villas at Ashlake, knew the sisters were thinking of relocating. While searching for communities in Virginia, they came across the virtual tour of the Canterbury and thought it would be perfect for them. Plus, it would be great to be close to their Mom and Aunts. They sent the virtual tour to Ruenette right away. And guess what? They loved it! The sisters made plans for a trip to see the home and check out the Villas at Ashlake community.
After touring the gorgeous home in person, Elaine immediately said, “Maybe you should have brought your checkbook to make a deposit,” to which Lorraine replied, “Don’t you worry, I have my checkbook!” And they were on their way to being homeowners in the Villas at Ashlake.
As the owners of a 3-story home in New Jersey, they immediately loved the single story and flexible space the Canterbury offered as well as a ton of storage areas. In their new Cornerstone home, each sister has their own bedroom and bath so that privacy is never an issue. They love their courtyard and can’t wait to enjoy their new patio furniture and do some container gardening in the Spring. The wide open great room is their gathering space to cook and share meals, entertain their family and new friends, or just relax. Today, they still have a ton of space to fulfill all of their needs, and happily have almost all new furniture: “We right-sized alright!”
Ruenette, Lorraine, and Elaine are regulars at the clubhouse, where they enjoy fun social events with their new friends and neighbors and are planning on enjoying the community garden events and pool this summer. The sisters love that the clubhouse is just a short walk from their front door!
Their favorite part about living together? Laughing, closeness, and company. And when they need their alone time, they can simply just go to their rooms, where they each have enough space to satisfy their individual needs. Funny enough, people keep asking them, “How is it living with your sisters... do you fight?" but they’ve never fought while living together! Getting to live with their best friends that they grew up with is something they could have only imagined as little girls. If you ask me, that’s love!
