For many active adults and retirees, purchasing a new home means downsizing (while having room for visitors) and finding a home that you will be able to enjoy no matter what the coming years throw at you. From one-level living to included exterior maintenance, our Richmond maintenance free homes offer plenty of opportunities for buyers to “age in place.”
According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), there is a checklist of design features that are ideal for “aging in place” home buyers. Several items, such as low-maintenance exteriors and main living on a single story with no steps between rooms/areas on the same level, are included in our maintenance free homes. Additional features of our homes include spacious master bathrooms with separate showers and large soaking tubs, as well as easy access to the home from an enclosed garage.
For home buyers with special health concerns, our homes can be easily customized to suit your wants and needs. Whether you need larger hallways, lower kitchen countertops and cabinets, hand rails or other items that help “aging in place” become a reality, you can design your dream home at Boone Homes.
While the one-level living and maintenance free exteriors are ideal for homeowners, our spacious homes also provide the perfect retreat for overnight guests with a second level that features additional bedrooms and bathrooms.
If you are looking for the perfect “aging in place” home, check out our maintenance free communities today. We currently build a variety of maintenance free floor plans in five communities throughout metro Richmond including: Coach Homes of Kinloch, Bellingham in Twin Hickory, Villas at Grey Oaks, Courtyard Homes in Tarrington on the James and Founders Bridge Club Villas.
