Guide to 55+ Communities in Virginia
Guide to 55+ Communities in Virginia
Retirees and seniors who prefer an active lifestyle may want to consider 55+ communities. With resort amenities such as golf courses, tennis courts, swimming pools and social clubs, the biggest problem residents may face is fitting all this fun into the daily schedule. These communities are a great place to make new friends who share your desire to be active and social in retirement
Residents of 55+ living communities enjoy a resort lifestyle every day. Clubhouses with spa and fitness facilities are available for daily use. Onsite restaurants and bars give residents a night on the town without having to leave their neighborhood.
Houses within these communities provide a mix of comfort and luxury. Generally, these single-family homes can be updated and customized. Newly constructed houses are outfitted with energy-efficient appliances. In some communities, landscaping and lawn care are also included in HOA dues so residents don’t have to spend hours trimming the lawn and shrubs.
Common areas within the neighborhood are also maintained. Residents will find manicured lawns, clean clubhouses, and trimmed pathways.
Safety and Privacy
Entry gates allow only residents and their guests into the neighborhood. There may also be extra security systems or patrolling units that make sure streets are safe.
Active Social Calendars
Holiday parties, themed dinners, golf tournaments, and tennis mixers are just a few events that are often on the calendar. Clubs for special interests, such as gardening and woodworking, are available so like-minded residents can gather and share their love for their hobbies.
Sample Communities to Discover
Belmont Bay is home to Beacon Park Towns, an age-55+ community for retirees and active adults on the Virginia waterfront.
Beacon Park Towns is a community of luxurious three-level townhomes overlooking the Occoquan River. Every residence comes with its own private elevator, providing easy access to the living, entertainment, and storage space in each townhome. The Commodore includes up to four bedrooms and 3.5 baths in a spacious floor plan of nearly 3,000 square feet, and the Galleon model comes with three or four bedrooms with up to five full baths. Both low-maintenance townhome designs feature two-car garages.
Belmont Bay residents have access to social and recreational amenities that are designed for active adults. The Belmont Bay Harbor Marina offers complete boating services that includes convenient anchorage for watercraft of all sizes, plus kayak and paddleboard launches. The surrounding Marina District features neighborhood shops and restaurants, a waterfront boardwalk, and a village green for live music performances and special events.
Developed by regional experts Miller & Smith and located in Virginia’s Prince Georges County, Belmont Bay is just a short drive from the Quantico Marine Corps Base and the growing town of Woodbridge. Also nearby are great hiking trails in several state parks and the Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
