You work hard so that you can retire with ease. Once we reach that shining goal, it’s time to relax and get back to enjoying some of the aspects of life we may have neglected from dedicating our time to the workforce. As you prepare for retirement, you may be considering long term where you want to live to best optimize an easy lifestyle.
Choosing a home for retirement is no simple task. An abundance of factors come into play when finding the perfect home. What activities are nearby? Are there convenient shops and restaurants in the area? How easily will family and friends be able to visit? At Brunswick Crossing, you’ll find a variety of amenities, models and activities that will help you enjoy retirement to the fullest.
Main Level Living
One of the main goals when planning for life post-retirement is comfort and safety. That’s why many choose homes designed for main level living. It’s the cornerstone of aging in place. All the spaces you use most often are all located on a single level of your house, including master suite, kitchen, living room, laundry room, office and deck. These homes allow you to cut down on unnecessary space while maintaining all the rooms you value most.
Brunswick Crossing offers a variety of homes built for main level living. The Monroe II, by Dan Ryan Builders, includes a welcoming foyer, open concept family room, beautiful kitchen and owner’s suite on the first floor. The second floor and basement offer more bedrooms and rec space for visiting family and friends. If you’re interested in more wonderfully convenient main living models, check out The Preston and The Presley.
Another key element to choosing the right community for retirement is nearby convenient shopping. At Brunswick Crossing, you don’t have to drive far to get all your necessities. The Marketplace is located right across the street from the community. Weis Markets is your go-to place for groceries. If you just want to grab a coffee with friends or have a date night, there are many options just around the corner. If you have family or friends visiting from outside the area, Holiday Inn Express & Suites is an excellent place to stay right next to The Marketplace. This brand new hotel offers guests free Wi-Fi, complimentary breakfast, free parking, a 24-hour fitness center, and an indoor pool.
Brunswick Crossing makes staying active easy. Our resort-style amenities located within the community give you opportunities to get out of the house. Providing stunning views of the countryside, 26 miles of well-marked trails and walkways weave through the neighborhood. The Fitness Center, outfitted with exercise equipment, also offers a great way to get out and get active. If you’ve got a green thumb, our Community Gardens area allows you to care for your own plot of land alongside your neighbors. And of course, Brunswick Crossing is great for your furry friends. Our dog parks offer plentiful space for your pup to stretch its legs and socialize.
When the grandkids come into town, there are amenities to keep them entertained too. They may not want to leave! Tot lots are located around the community. These playgrounds are the perfect place for the kids to climb, swing, and let out energy. During the summer, our Community Pool is open! While you relax in a lounge chair, the kids can splash around in the water and soak up the sun. If they’re big sports fans, Brunswick Crossing also has a variety of sports fields and courts for soccer, tennis, volleyball, basketball and more.
Nearby Day Trips
Without a full-time job to keep you busy, your days are open to exciting new possibilities. Therefore, nearby activities are a must when looking for a new home. Brunswick Crossing is conveniently located near historic and tasty adventures, whether you’re going on an outing with friends or a day trip with family.
Just across the Brunswick Bridge is Northern Virginia’s wine country. In less than 30 minutes, you’ll find a cluster of Potomac wineries that are perfect for wine tours or just spending a relaxing day with friends. If beer is more your style, there are also several breweries to choose from! If you’re looking to get out of the house to spend time with family, the historic C&O Canal along the Potomac River is the perfect adventure. The C&O Canal, previously used to transport goods such as lumber and agriculture products to market, now is active with bikers, fishers, kayakers and campers.
More chances to experience history include downtown Frederick and Harper’s Ferry. Just a short drive away are numerous shopping and dining options along Market Street in downtown Frederick. You can also visit slices of history from the Civil War, explore scenic byways and peruse art galleries. Harper’s Ferry, first settled in the mid-1700s, was highly sought after due to its location in the Blue Ridge Mountains along the Potomac. It later held the US Armory and Arsenal prior to the tremendous impact of the Civil War. Now managed by the National Park Service, Harper’s Ferry includes scenic trails, river adventures, a variety of museums, and town tours.
