Head to the Pacific Northwest to one of the nation’s top retirement cities. Get outside to the Puget Sound and watch for a pod of orcas or walk the miles of trails at Whatcom Falls Park. Active adults will want to see it all, and you’ll have time to do it with your low-maintenance home in Whatcom County.
Check out the local theatre, orchestra, and ballet for evenings of cultured entertainment, or go lighter at the Upfront Theatre and its comedy shows. Connoisseurs of fresh food will love the farmers market. Get outside to the mountains, lakes, and countless bodies of water, or stay inside at Bellis Fair, the area’s largest shopping mall. And if you want to spread your wings a bit, it’s easy to get to the San Juan Islands or the Northern Cascades, and big cities like Seattle and Vancouver are also nearby.
The Bellingham area currently offers many homes for active adults, so use the search tools on NewHomeSource.com to find the best place for you. Look into the Twin Brooks community from Landed Gentry Homes for options including single-level homes, models with basements, lovely views, and fireplaces. Twin Brooks offers larger lots than most adult communities, but fear not—maintenance is included. Northwest Alpine architecture fits the region and adds visual interest, and you can’t beat the location.
Depending on your individual needs, select features that are important to you. If you’re looking for something small, look at the Decatur floorplan from Twin Brooks. The community’s smallest model, it is also the most affordable, but you won’t lose out on any amenities. With a study for down time, fireplace for cozy evenings, and open layout for entertaining, this home offers everything you need. On the other end of the spectrum, the Maxwelton model with a lower level offers twice the space with its daylight basement, wine storage, and media room.
