If you are age 55-plus and thinking about moving to an active adult community, we encourage you to hurry to Soleil — especially if you are considering a townhome. The Cottages are our stylish, thoughtfully-designed, courtyard townhouse concept. We had unveiled these new homes in the spring of last year and they’ve been so popular that we now only have a handful left. What makes these 55-plus townhomes so compelling? Here’s what we’ve heard from owners:
The price is right
Selling from the mid-200’s, The Cottages are approximately 1801-square feet and feature up to three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, spacious closets, an outdoor patio, a 2-car garage, and fenced-in courtyards. If you love beautiful scenery, some of the courtyard homesites offer views of the nearby golf course and mountains. Essentially, those who opt to live in townhomes get to enjoy the same things as those who live in traditional homes but are paying quite a bit less.
Townhomes are perfect for right-sizing
Most people that are in their mid-fifties are at a point where they want to downsize into smaller homes. By now, the kids have “flown the coop” so a “right-size” home makes more sense. Soleil’s Cottage homes cater to those needs perfectly. Townhomes offer an easy way to scale down your house without having to scale down your lifestyle. And with the built-in upgrades, there’s no need to skimp on luxuries either.
Residents enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle
When you move to Soleil, feel free to leave your lawnmower behind. Management of your lawn and irrigation systems are included with your HOA dues. That means you can concentrate on more fun activities, like hanging out with all your new friends. Imagine no longer having to worry about mowing, edging, fertilizing, and pesticide applications! Your dues also cover other important things, like in-home security monitoring and maintenance, as well as cable television.
Townhomes are a great option as a second home
Some residents have purchased townhomes as second homes at Soleil. They live in them part-time with the intent to move into them full-time in the future. This is a smart idea, as they are building equity in two houses in the interim. In addition, many are able to enjoy the resort-like lifestyle here (and escape harsh winters if they live in the north.) Also, our townhomes are an excellent option for those who travel often since they are essentially maintenance-free and our 55+ community is gated with 24/7 security. Our residents rest assured that both they and their homes are safe and sound.
Residents have full access to Soleil’s amenities, events, and clubs
Amenities abound here, including a 30,000 square-foot clubhouse with a brand new gourmet teaching kitchen, an arts and crafts center, a theater and performing arts center, a library, a well-equipped fitness center (with several fun classes to choose from), an indoor heated saline lap pool, and more. Outside you’ll discover walking trails, a lake, an amphitheater, tennis courts, bocce ball, a greenhouse and garden center, and a large, heated, lagoon-style pool, among other amenities. Our event calendar is chock full of fun activities, and we have well over 50 active clubs. You’ll have to see it all for yourself, but there’s one thing is for sure, you’ll never be bored at Soleil.
Soleil homes offer top resale values
Of course, when you’re in the process of buying, you’re likely not thinking about reselling anytime soon. But it’s always a good idea to be aware of the resale values of homes in your community. All Soleil Laurel Canyon homes continue to increase in value and offer an excellent ROI for their owners.
