Are you curious about what living at The Villas at Southbury an age targeted community will be like? To help you along, we’ve anticipated some of the questions you may be having:
Q. What, exactly, are The Villas at Southbury?
A. The Villas at Southbury, an age-targeted community is just one of seven distinct neighborhoods located within the planned community of Southbury in Oswego. The traditionally-styled ranch or two story Villas feature spacious floor plans, abundant standard luxury features and amenities, and an attention to distinct architectural styling that is sure to make them the most desired homes at Southbury.
Q. What are the homes in The Villas at Southbury like?
A. The Villas at Southbury upon completion will be home to 107 homeowners. Today Orleans Homes offers four unique Villa’s. Each features distinctive architectural details and styling with all the modern conveniences your lifestyle demands. Landscaping throughout the community will provide a sanctuary where you can be by yourself or welcome friends and family.
Q. Why are the Villas at Southbury “age-targeted” and not age-restricted like other “active–adult” 55 and older communities we are familiar with?
A. The Villas at Southbury caters to the active adult who seeks a leisurely, low maintenance lifestyle, but not an age-restricted neighborhood environment. Our experience reveals that many active-adults under 55 are seeking a transition community, not a retirement community. Our homeowners are vibrant and active in their community, perhaps still working and have life-long friends and family in the area.
Q. Is “Age-Targeted” a new concept?
A. There is a recognized trend towards “age-targeted” developments that share several positive attributes with age-restricted communities: A spacious master bedroom on the first floor; low maintenance home sites; open landscaping, walking trails and a community clubhouse – amenities that encourage activities for residents to get to know each other and become real neighbors; a Homeowners’ Association that restricts architectural modifications and requires exterior and landscape maintenance; prohibition of fencing, sheds and swing sets in order to maintain the clean, manicured look.
Q. What recreational opportunities are provided?
A. The community of Southbury features a private clubhouse with three resort-style outdoor pools, one being reserved for those over 21 years old, providing numerous recreational and social opportunities. An active Homeowners’ Association will help organize clubs and activities to nurture your current interest and help you become involved in new ones. An indoor fitness area will meet your daily needs, and, when weather permits, walking, jogging and bike paths will get your heart pumping.
Q. What additional recreational facilities exist in the area?
A. At the southern end of the Fox River Valley, Oswego is a growing and desired community that features many amenities that cater to your every interest. The Fox Bend Golf Course is just a short distance away as are many other local golf courses and other sports facilities. The Fox River itself provides opportunities for water sports including fishing, boating and other recreation al activities.
Q. What do monthly Association fees cover?
A. Your monthly fees to the Master Homeowners Association and the Villas Homeowners Association will cover:
• Membership in both Associations
• Unlimited use of clubhouse, outdoor pools and fitness center
• Common area landscape maintenance
• Individual unit lawn / landscape maintenance and snow removal
Please consult your Sales Representative for actual HOA dues.
Q. Are pets permitted in The Villas at Southbury?
A. Yes, your canine or feline friends will feel at home at The Villas at Southbury too. Of course, as with anywhere else, you’ll need to exercise a few common courtesies and certain restrictions do apply. But the family pet is more than welcome.
Q. Are families with children allowed to live within The Villas at Southbury?
A. Yes. The Villas at Southbury is an “Age-Targeted” community not an “Age-Restricted” community. There is however specific restrictions identified within the Villa Declarations that restrict the use of certain outdoor playground equipment, swing sets, swimming pools and fences. But families and children are welcome.
