Are you thinking about moving into a retirement community? Embarking on the journey to find the ideal retirement community can feel overwhelming – where do you begin?  Finding a new place to call home that has the perfect mix of comfort, companionship and peace of mind later in life isn’t always easy to do on your own.

As the popularity of retirement communities continues to soar, the benefits they offer have become increasingly evident.

Let’s explore some important considerations for selecting the right retirement community to ensure the next chapter of your life aligns seamlessly with your needs and lifestyle preferences.

How great would life be like living on one level? That's what you get with this property. Even the back door off the kitchen leads to an outdoor deck. Oh, and yes that includes laundry, which is perfectly tucked into the walk in closet in the primary bedroom. Are you ok with laundry being in the basement? That's fine too, because the basement laundry hookup is there. You chose! As soon as you walk into this property you'll notice the cathedral ceilings, opening up the living space to make it seem even larger. A raised ceiling offers more natural light as a well. Everyone says it doesn't feel at all like a semi detached home. The kitchen is quite generous offering lots of storage space and seating options. If you ever planned on a future kitchen remodel, there are a ton of opportunities for you to consider. The deck I mentioned off the backdoor, it brings you right to the back deck which is perfect for grilling and a nice platform lower deck for hanging out. The bedrooms are a great size, separated by the full bathroom. In the surrounding area is nearly everything you would need on a daily basis. Grocery store, drug store, restaurants, cafes, Maple park...and you don't need the car! Just walk over, grab your milk, bread and/or a treat and walk home. It's so easy to live here. The current owner has maintained it well. It's in great shape and ready for it's new owner.
