How to Find the Best Active Adult Community

Are you looking to move to a 55+ community that can keep up with your active lifestyle but not sure about the best way to evaluate your options?

The first thing to consider when searching for the ideal active adult community is location. Proximity to family, friends, or favorite activities is important to consider.

Enjoy an ideal balance of serene living with easy access to shopping, dining, and cultural attractions. This new-construction community’s prime location near major highways ensures that you can stay connected to the broader region while enjoying the tranquility of your new home.

New vs. Old Homes

When deciding between new and old homes, consider the benefits of new construction. New homes often feature the latest in design and technology, offering better energy efficiency, modern appliances, and fewer maintenance issues. The Parke at Foulkstone is a new townhome community in Delaware that exemplifies these advantages, offering luxurious townhomes equipped with the latest amenities and designed for comfort and style.

Types of Homes

The type of home you choose—whether a condo, townhome, or stand-alone house—can significantly impact your lifestyle. Condos offer the convenience of low maintenance, while stand-alone homes provide more privacy. Townhomes strike a balance, offering spacious living areas with less upkeep than a stand-alone home.

At The Parke at Foulkstone, our new construction townhomes in Delaware offer the perfect blend of comfort and convenience, designed specifically with the needs of active adults in mind.

Activities and Amenities Nearby

An active adult community should offer plenty of opportunities to stay engaged and entertained. Look for communities that provide a range of amenities such as shops, fitness centers, walking trails, and socializing opportunities.

Size of the Community

The size of the community can also play a role in your decision. Larger communities may offer more amenities and social opportunities, while smaller communities can provide a more intimate, close-knit environment. The Parke at Foulkstone strikes an excellent balance, offering a vibrant, yet intimate community where neighbors quickly become friends.
