Over the last 25 years, planned communities have skyrocketed in popularity, especially for retirees. Although not every neighborhood has age restrictions, many older adults gravitate to these types of communities for their amenities, activities, and low-maintenance lifestyles.
For the fourth consecutive year, Ideal Living has ranked the top 100 planned communities across the country. And here in North Carolina, The Walk at East Village has been recognized as one of the best options in the entire state!
What Makes The Walk One of North Carolina’s Top Planned Communities?
When it comes to developing a planned community, it’s crucial to craft a locale where homeowners can live, work, and play. Active adults in particular may also want certain perks, such as HOA-handled maintenance, homes where they can age in place, or engaging social events.
There are more than a few reasons why The Walk has been consistently recognized as one of the best planned communities for retirees in the Triangle. Let’s take a closer look at what sets us apart from the competition!
On-site amenities are one of the biggest draws to any planned community. Here at The Walk, our resort-style facilities offer both fun and relaxation all year round, so you’ll never have to go far to find some excitement.
A fitness center, walking trails, craft spaces, pools, a community garden, and a putting green are just a few of the amenities we have at The Walk. We’re also just weeks away from the grand opening of our clubhouse, which will showcase two floors of activity and event space!
An ideal location
When you’re not hanging out at The Walk, you can take some time to explore Clayton and the rest of the Triangle. With its small-town atmosphere and endless opportunities, Clayton has something to offer residents from all walks of life. Here, you can catch a show at the Clayton Center, grab some coffee from Boulevard West, or take a leisurely stroll down Main Street.
Clayton is also less than a half hour away from the Triangle’s other top cities, including Raleigh and Cary. Popular attractions in the area include the North Carolina Museum of Art, Umstead Park, and Raleigh’s bustling Downtown district.
Home is where the heart is—and when you live at The Walk, you’ll fall in love with our stunning floorplans that we designed with older adults in mind. Our new construction homes feature first-floor master bedrooms and open living areas, as well as a variety of standard features (like energy-efficient appliances, full laundry rooms, and gourmet kitchens).
In total, The Walk at East Village has five collections of homes that range in size from 1,300 to well over 1,600 square feet. If you choose to build from the ground up, you can even work with our builders to craft a home that’s just as unique as you are!
