Th active adult community boasts Midwestern charm, meant for older adults looking to downsize while remaining close to their loved ones whilst living a maintenance-free lifestyle.

With shed roofing and mixed stone for siding, the community was designed in the architectural style of rustic and contemporary. Private single-story luxury apartments ranging from 1,200 to 1,600 sq. ft. are available for buyers to choose from while offering a wide variety of amenities including The Commons community center and a garden for the residents’ use.
