The Benefits of Luxury Living for Adults 55 or Better

It’s never an easy decision to sell the family home and downsize. All your family memories are under that roof, and you established your life there.

However, at a certain point, moving into active senior living apartments just makes sense. While you may first feel a sense of loss after moving out of your house, those feelings will quickly subside once you get involved with all the things that resort-like active adult communities have to offer.

Remember, active adults before you have moved out of their homes in pursuit of a more relaxing, freeing lifestyle; even if you’re worried about what your new adventure will be like, know that you are not alone. And when your heart starts feeling heavy with your decision, remember these five reasons to move into an active adult community like Larkspur at Shadow Creek in Pearland, Texas, near Houston.

Get Freedom from Home Maintenance in a Senior Apartment or Cottage

The pride of homeownership comes with a price to pay: frequently expensive and time-consuming maintenance tasks that cannot be ignored, including lawn care, building repairs, and general upkeep. Eventually, the time comes that you may prefer to have more leisure time and fewer items on your to-do list.

Moving into an active senior living community is the ticket to a more laid-back lifestyle, where you’re free to choose your daily activities, rather than schedule them around household upkeep. Larkspur at Shadow Creek provides all residents with 24/7 maintenance service, so you never need to handle any issues alone. You’ll enjoy valet garbage removal and housekeeping, too, leaving fewer chores for you to complete.

Enjoy Luxury Living in Your New Home in Pearland

Don’t let the stereotype of what a “senior apartment” looks like skew your opinion of Larkspur Shadow Creek. You may find that to be the case at other communities in Houston, but not in our vibrant, active adult community at Larkspur at Shadow Creek. Our apartment homes and cottages are outfitted with premium finishes, so you don’t have to sacrifice style.

One- and two-bedroom apartments and private cottages in our resort-like active adult community are outfitted with all the luxurious amenities you’d expect from a property like Larkspur at Shadow Creek. Your new home features quartz countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms, premium flooring throughout, tall ceilings, stainless steel, energy-efficient appliances, brushed-nickel cabinet hardware, your very own washer and dryer, walk-in closets, private balconies or patios with storage spaces, plus assigned parking on site. All surfaces are easy to clean and care for and hand-selected for their sleek, modern good looks.

Why accept laminate countertops, linoleum floors, and no storage, when you could have these things and more in your active adult living community near Houston? When you choose Larkspur, you choose to live luxuriously.

Participate in Activities within the Senior Living Community

When you no longer have to care for the house you own, you free up lots of time for other activities, which allows you to live a rich life of leisure, learning, and wellness.

Larkspur at Shadow Creek is the only active adult community in the area with a whopping 18,000-square-foot amenity space. You’ll always find a fun activity to participate in throughout the day, organized and carried out by our activities director and activities staff dedicated to helping you have fun, learn new things, and meet new friends.

In addition to our activities and amenities, like bocce ball, art classes, salon and day spa, lap pool, wine bistro, and more, you’ll find our luxury living community for adults 55+ is adjacent to city parks with walking and biking trails, as well as nearby shopping and dining opportunities in the Shadow Creek Ranch and Pearland areas.

Active adult communities like Larkspur at Shadow Creek are more of a lifestyle choice than just another place to live. Here, you’ll be able to focus on keeping healthy, remaining active, engaging with your community, and socializing with the new friends you’ll make. You don’t even have to drive anywhere to do it!

Pad Your Savings Account

If you’ve lived in your house for more than 30 years, you likely own it outright after decades of making mortgage payments, paying taxes, and keeping your homeowner’s insurance policy up-to-date. Depending on what you choose to do, you could use your home as an income property, or sell it and deposit the proceeds straight into your savings account or investment portfolio.

When you move into our active living community for adults 55+, you’ll need simply to pay your reasonable monthly rent, and you can live freely knowing you’ve got additional monthly income from owning a rental property, or that you have money stowed away for the future (or more vacations).
