Find the Perfect 55+ Luxury Apartments in Pearland, Texas

Active adult communities are designed for people just like you: active adults who are ready to find the best place to retire and enjoy their life’s “second chapter.” This is obviously a huge life decision, and one you surely don’t take lightly. When you’re ready to choose an active adult community that fits your lifestyle, you should be sure to consider all your options. But how do you determine which 55+ active adult apartment community is right for you? Here are three simple steps you can take to make sure your search for an active adult community starts off on the right foot.

Choose your location

It’s important to carefully choose where you want to live. Many people opt to remain close to where they’ve always lived, but this certainly doesn’t have to be the case. Others choose to retire to warmer climates, both for ease of living and for the year-round activities. You can find active adult living communities in all kinds of places. Consider what climate would best fit your lifestyle and hobbies, and where you can be closest to friends and family. You may find peace in the idea of an active adult living community located in a small town. Or perhaps the hustle and bustle of a suburban or urban center community is an invigorating fit for you.

Larkspur properties in Pearland strikes an ideal balance. Located no more than a 15-minute drive from Houston, our community of luxury cottages and luxury apartments is nestled in the planned community of Shadow Creek Ranch. This master-planned, lake-themed community offers a wealth of recreational and leisure activities. Just steps from the Larkspur apartments and cottages you’ll find natural wetlands, walking paths, and a sports complex with volleyball courts and fields for softball and baseball.

Consider your community

The community that surrounds your new home is an important factor when it comes to choosing the active adult community that’s best for you. Active adult communities are built to appeal to residents over the age of 55, and not all of these communities are age-restricted. An age-targeted community will feature sought-after amenities for active adults and they’ll be open to residents of all ages. In an age-targeted community, you’re more likely to find children or teenagers enjoying the community’s open spaces and amenities. Age-restricted communities like Larkspur at Shadow Creek offer a quieter environment for active adult living.

During your visit to Larkspur at Shadow Creek, be certain to explore the area. “Be an anthropologist for a couple of days,” suggests Mary Kay Buysse, executive director of the National Association of Senior Move Managers. “Try to figure out what the life is like there.” At Larkspur, you can schedule tours to see all the luxury cottage options and luxury apartment floorplans. A nice way to round out a busy day of discovery at Shadow Creek is to take a drive to visit a local grocery store. Consider your other daily needs like banks, pharmacies, and medical facilities. Strolling or driving through the neighborhood just outside our active adult community will give you a good feel for the area.

Plan your budget

Budget it key when it comes to finding the active adult community that is right for you. “Active adult communities come in all shapes and sizes,” says Bill Ness, founder and chief executive officer of “What is your capability? What are you willing to spend?”

A 55+ active adult apartment community may be just the right fit for you and your budget. A typical active adult community doesn’t offer meals or a central dining area. As a new resident in your community, you’ll have your own home, and you can participate in community activities as much or as little as you like. “If you want privacy, it’s there,” says Ness.
