The Villa Life Awaits You in Roanoke and Christiansburg Virginia
Active Adults Choose Quality, Convenience and Value for an Exceptional Lifestyle at Cornerstone Home Communities
“Our single-story, maintenance free villa communities have been popular with boomers and active adults since we built our first one in 2000,” said Roger Glover, principal of Cornerstone Homes Development, LLC. “Our market knows what it wants, and people have decided they aren’t waiting to get it. They are taking advantage of a great opportunity to embrace a new and more attractive home and lifestyle. That lifestyle includes easier, more gracious living in a community of peers with all the amenities. We have given them that in our Cornerstone Home communities, and the result is a resort lifestyle that they can enjoy today—and every day!”
Glover goes on to say that they are currently building out communities in Roanoke and Christiansburg. He expects Christiansburg to be sold out by the end of the year, and Roanoke is in the final stages of development.
“We have surpassed most others in this market. We offer the most value by combining quality and affordability, especially at the Villas at Pepper’s Ferry in Christiansburg where we stand out because there are no other communities that come close to offering this kind of lifestyle for active adults.”
Donna Vitaliano, community marketing director of the Villas at Peppers Ferry in Christiansburg, said there are only eight homes left to sell in Pepper’s Ferry. “They are selling so well and are so popular because they offer a winning combination of single-story, well-designed floor plans and a ‘small town,’ neighborly atmosphere that appeal to adults seeking regular and wide-ranging social activities at the pool, fitness center and clubhouse, freedom from outdoor maintenance, and the best of active adult living.
In addition to a desirable floor plan and solid construction, Cornerstone Homes customers find they have bought a home in a true, old-fashioned American neighborhood that offers green spaces, beautifully maintained landscaping, and a lifestyle reminiscent of simpler times. “Residents live among peers who are ready to customize their future and share a zest for and ability to enjoy hobbies, grandchildren, and continuing education,” said Kathy Gentry, community marketing director at Orchard Villas in Roanoke. “They enjoy more of life because they enjoy each other and they aren’t burdened with the hassles and expense of owning a big house and yard.”
She adds that Cornerstone Homes communities are designed to be small and cohesive, with tree-lined streets, sidewalks, park benches and walking trails. Monthly book clubs, barbeques, classes in the clubhouse and fitness center, and enriching discussions by the pool further a sense of community and support the common goals of enjoying a rewarding lifestyle. “As well, those who are working and planning for retirement enjoy getting a jump on the life they envision. Cornerstone Homes have proven to be a good investment on a number of levels,” Gentry said.”
And to make the transition easier for home buyers, Cornerstone Homes offers the Own a Villa Today Program. “The program is designed to make the transition from your old home to your new one in the Villas completely stress free,” said Gentry. “It provides assistance with everything from selling your home to downsizing to moving in. There is no reason to wait.”
