Exclusive Communities For Every Life Style

Most private communities feature a fully equipped and staffed entrance gatehouse. Many seniors looking for retirement options choose a gated community by prioritizing peace of mind in their next permanent living situation. Security measures and fees are generally all included when moving into this type of neighborhood. Even fully automated gates activated with code entry increase the prevention of non-resident traffic through the neighborhood, creating the quiet and safe street for which you are looking.

Prestige and Privacy for Seniors

Live in Private CommunitiesOne potential drawback to a private community is the price that accompanies prestige. Residents may move to a gated neighborhood to escape mundane, standard suburbia. The privacy and exclusivity many retirees yearn for comes at a price slightly higher than that of the average retirement community home. However, the cost is well worth the included security, amenities, and maintenance of grounds if that is what you are after. For your residency, you are also granted access to your private community’s swimming pools, tennis courts, golf courses, spas, equine and biking paths.

 

Some private communities do allow for multi-generational households but many are strictly for financially well-established couples. Since there are so many broad options of gated private communities, your exact match might require a little exploring. But hey, isn’t that part of the fun?

Retire Tennessee Program Communities

Nashville, TN

Whether you’re ready for full-time retirement or want to relocate to a better place, Tennessee is a state that deserves your attention.

Consider these facts before deciding on another location: Tennessee collects no state tax on income or other retirement-plan benefits and no sales tax on prescription drugs. Property taxes in Tennessee are very reasonable, especially with available exemptions for retirees and age 65+ residents, resulting in the second-lowest overall state and local tax burden per capita in the nation. And Tennessee offers the eighth-lowest cost of living in the U.S.—more than 10% below the national average.

The Retire Tennessee program is a state government initiative designed to spread the word about all of the great reasons for retiring or relocating to the Volunteer State. From the Great Smoky Mountains in the east to the banks of the Mississippi River in the west, a total of 19 urban and rural counties in the program highlight the unique natural attractions and cultural amenities that each has to offer.

Tennessee has more than 60 state and national parks with some of America’s finest freshwater fishing lakes and hiking destinations that range from the 210-mile Cumberland Trail to Chattanooga’s 16-mile Riverwalk. The delightful four-season climate means that you can enjoy a round of golf or a kayak excursion any week of the year. And the world-famous Tennessee music scene includes Beale Street blues in Memphis, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and bluegrass festivals in charming mountain towns like Kingsport and Cookeville.

Grand Highlands encompasses 300 acres of woodlands and meadows. It offers panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, as well as proximity to downtown Asheville, Hendersonville, and Lake Lure. Sprawling wooded home sites are among its most coveted features. A spacious, lodge-style clubhouse, private parks, and adjacent nature preserves are also bonuses. All home sites are just below 4,000 feet elevation. And, each has underground utilities.

Life as a Resident

A communal spirit is embraced by residents. Finally able to live on their own terms in such an idyllic place, they come together both in celebration and in peace and solitude. Whether on trails, on Grand Lodge verandas, or at the Community Barn for events, coming together is a way of life at Grand Highlands.

Nearby Hendersonville is a charming mountain town. It provides access to all necessities, along with a vibrant restaurant and shopping scene. Theatre and music venues are also plentiful in Hendersonville. And whatever Hendersonville doesn’t offer, Asheville, just 25 miles away, does.

Grand Highlands home sites are priced from $70,000 to $650,000. Homes range from $475,000 to $3.5 million.
