Your life has changed.
Maybe retirement arrived earlier than you planned, your children moved away and it’s time to enjoy your freedom.
It could be the perfect time to change how you live. In a recent study, 66% of Americans said they wanted to live in a planned community with a wellness center, like Celadon. But what is a planned community and will you want to live there?
What is a Planned Community?
A planned community is a tailor-made neighbourhood designed from the ground-up. Unlike a traditional city that grows in spurts, a planned community is developed on a blank slate and is created with intention and purpose. The homes, roads, parks, public spaces are all planned to enhance ease of daily living without sacrificing privacy and a sense of being “home”.
Some communities cater to young families, others to the very elderly. Celadon Community in Beaufort, South Carolina is perfect for active empty-nesters.
Is a Planned Community right for you?
Not sure if a planned community if for you? Answer these 5 questions:
- I’d rather spend my leisure time swimming, strolling through a park, or going for a bike ride instead of worrying about the next landscaping project I have to tackle.
- I’m not ready for condo living but our house is more than we need. I’m tired of the repairs and upkeep.
- I love to socialize and really get to know the people who live in my community.
- I’d love to leave the car in the garage more often.
- I want to focus on my health and fitness. I appreciate living in a community that’s designed to encourage a healthy lifestyle.
If these statements ring true for you, if you’re ready to downsize but not slow down, Celadon might be the perfect fit for you.
Fit and active lifestyle
The Community is designed with movement in mind. Our state-of-the-art fitness club, including a crystal-clear pool, is the perfect place to exercise and socialize.
Workout in the weight-room or take one of the many classes designed to suit every level of fitness, from yoga to water aerobics to zumba.
Or find a personal trainer who can customize your exercise program to be perfect for you.
There’s a full-service spa waiting for you when you’re ready to unwind from your workout, or treat yourself “just because”.
More options at your doorstep
Celadon Square is steps from your home and features all the amenities you’d need day-to-day. This beautiful town center is also a gathering place – a friendly place to connect with your neighbours.
If you’re looking for a day trip or evening out, beautiful seaside Beaufort’s downtown is a just 3 miles from your front door.
Called “America’s Happiest Seaside Town”, you’ll find upscale dining and little boutiques alongside the services you’d expect from a city center, all wrapped up in Southern hospitality.
And the town is rich in Lowcountry history just waiting to be rediscovered.
Living in nature, naturally
The community features acres of protected green space – including parks, ponds, and walking trails.
Take a stroll and soak in the sounds and scents…the soft drone of bees and dragonflies, the twitter of nesting songbirds, the fragrant ocean breeze, the misty salt marshes.
With mild winters and warm, breezy summers you’ll be drawn outside year-round to enjoy the natural beauty Lowcountry has to offer.
Fewer decisions, more time to enjoy
Celadon is focused on a simplified lifestyle. We like to say it’s best appreciated at a laid-back, Southern pace.
You’ve earned a change of pace. Your life at Celadon can be as active or as low key as you choose…day to day, season to season.
Of course, a planned community isn’t for everybody. But if you want to live in a community that balances comfort, convenience and calm with a wealth of possibilities every day, you’ve probably found your next neighbourhood.
Why don’t you come for a visit, take your own Discovery Tour, and find out if you’re “home”.
