Too often when a community is listed as ‘active adult’ or ‘55+’ it gets the reputation of being a retirement community. While there’s nothing wrong with a retirement home, the connotation is that it is a place where people go to rest in old age. The planned communities designed by the award winning team at By Carrier know the difference between 55+ and retiree and construct convenient and comfortable custom homes that redefine the active adult lifestyle.
The idea that 55+ communities are for slowing down is a misconception that is quickly dismissed when touring the active adult planned communities By Carrier has built. Chimney Hill Estates and Autumn Estates in Farmington and Castle Heights in Cheshire represent a contemporary design take on active adult community living that features convenient home floor plans, energy efficient appliances and first floor master suites. The custom homes that comprise these communities are testaments to the forward thinking approach of By Carrier and its goal of 100% customer satisfaction.
Another misconception about 55+ communities in Connecticut is that they are the domain for the super-wealthy and these custom luxury homes start in the millions. While the By Carrier homes are certainly worthy of being called luxurious there is nothing extravagant about the price. With homes starting in the low $300’s and $400’s it’s possible for many active adults to find a custom home that fits their budget.
