Over 55 Retirement Communities by Four Seasons

Are you looking for a well-built, comfortable retirement home in an active adult community?  You may want to consider one of the many Four Seasons age restricted communities built by K. Hovnanian builders for residents who are over age 55.

Where are you interested in living?  You can find developments built by K. Hovnanian in Southern California, Northern Delaware, Southeast Florida, Maryland, Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, North and South Carolina, Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Texas, New Jersey, Virginia and in Minnesota near Minneapolis/St. Paul. All of these locations have lovely developments and many of these developments have been specifically designed as Four Seasons age-restricted communities. Other developments are very appealing, but are open to residents of all ages.

The variety of locations makes it possible for people to live on either the East Coast or West Coast, in the Sun Belt or in the Upper Midwest.  Many people will find that they can experience an enjoyable retirement lifestyle while still living within driving distance of their adult children and grandchildren.

Amenities at Four Seasons Over-55 Communities

K. Hovanian Homes offers diverse home styles as well as a variety of locations.  Depending on the community you select, you can choose from a condominium, a townhome or a single family home.  Prices vary widely, as well.  For example, the Four Seasons at Beaumont in Southern California and the Four Seasons at Bakersfield in Central California both have single family homes with prices starting around $200,000.  Home prices may be higher or lower depending on the location that interests you.

I have visited the lovely community in Beaumont.  It is a gated community with a gorgeous lodge that contains a restaurant, pool, movie theater and space for club meetings and other activities.  The community also offers an exercise room, billiards room, ballroom, shuffleboard courts and nature trails where you can take an afternoon stroll.  Although there is no on-site golf course, there are a number of public golf courses in the surrounding area.  While Beaumont is not near the California coast, it is only a little over an hour drive away.

Whichever style of home you prefer, the goal of Four Seasons active adult communities is to provide you with a "resort-at-home" experience.  They offer a variety of recreational activities that are available the year around.  Living in a gated community with other retired adults offers you security, peace-of-mind and an endless variety of opportunities for friendship and socializing.  Many people have found this to be a more desirable lifestyle than living alone in their former neighborhoods.

You can learn more about the different  K. Hovanian communities, both those that are age restricted and those that are not, at

  5. Hey thanks for the information ,I had even read somewhere of Douglass Village homes,that provides beautiful and Affordable 55 communities in Berks County PA attracting home buyers sharing the desire for quality amenities & modest retirement. Their new clubhouse features a lovely banquet room, game/hobby room, fitness center and outdoor heated pool.I gonna contact them.

  6. No more shuffle board or horseshoes will be found in today's modern retirement communities.

    Instead, the focus is on the active adult, over 55 years of age, who is looking for a minimal

    maintenance home offering functional, open floor plan highlighting their independent social

    lifestyle. see more : 55+ adult community

  7. I agree with your thoughts and also feel one must plan for retirement homes and invest in it, i explored lots of article on 55+ communities and found Philadelphia has some good communities for active adults. some of the 55+ homes which i liked the most are Meridian Valley SquareMeridian Valley Square, Bluestone Creek and Heritage Creek.

  8. Thanks for the info. If you're considering retirement, choosing a community based on its amenities is an excellent way to make your move more comfortable and enjoyable. It's easy to become attached to the community's staff and amenities, but deciding what you're looking for is equally important.
