When people think of retirement the obvious locations always pop up. Arizona and Florida have always been the stereotypical destination for seniors who want to relax in their golden years. However, most of this is based on advertising and a push by each state to attract more visitors and home buyers.
The fact is, many people over the age of 50 still enjoy the gorgeous four seasons of New England and couldn’t imagine not enjoying the brilliant fall and scenic winters. Home builders know there is a market for active adults and in Connecticut there are plenty of high end planned communities designed for 55+ couples who want to stay close to family.
For those that can afford it, there is always the snowbird option in which you have a winter home down south and a summer home up north. Of course, not everyone has the means to pay for two homes. If your desire is to stay in New England, check out the great 55+ planned communities in Connecticut. These active adult locations feature beautiful custom homes with features that are perfect for seniors including first floor master bedrooms, single floor living and shower/tub combinations in the master bath.
With community living you get all the benefits of being close to a tight-knit group of people with similar interests while still having privacy to call your own. Not many people want to spend their golden years alone and with the right planned community you can settle into a picture-perfect neighborhood that features scenic gazebos, center greens and sidewalks with old fashioned lamp posts.
