March 18, 2022

Villas at Iron Mill might be relatively new to the scene, but since it opened in 2020, it has quickly become one of our most popular 55+ communities. The in-demand amenities, ideal location, and floor plans featuring first-floor living make this community a crowd-pleaser. In fact, nearly forty homeowners have already started Living Up in this community! We recently released a new section in Villas at Iron Mill and new homebuyers quickly jumped at the chance to join in on all that Villas at Iron Mill has to offer. For anyone still considering making to move to the Villas at Iron Mill, we put together a sneak peek into what homebuyers are loving about this community.


Each floor plan at Villas at Iron Mill features one-level living for a home that fits your lifestyle now and for years to come. Choose from three different floor plans, each one including: a spacious Owner’s Suite, an extra bedroom for overnight guests, and even a Flex Room that can be turned into an additional bedroom, office, home gym, or art studio — the options are endless.

Welcoming friends or family to your home is easy thanks to the open kitchen space, designed for gathering and connecting with your loved ones. Your home will feel even larger because of the outdoor living space that allows you to take in the fresh air, idyllic views, and good company. And don’t worry, one-level living doesn’t mean skimping on storage. We know that our 55+ homebuyers have decades of memories in tow and need adequate space to tuck them safely away, so we’ve included extra storage space in each floor plan too.

Villas at Iron Mill homebuyers also get to choose the exterior look of their home. Whether you love craftsman homes, prefer farmhouse style, or hope for cottage-like charm, you can make your new home a reflection of your style, starting with the curb-appeal.

The large space is conducive to hosting family gatherings or mingling with your neighbors. It also offers an indoor fitness center and outdoor pool to make it easy to stay active year-round.

The cherry on top? Each home comes with included lawn care. That means all the time you currently spend mowing, raking, and maintaining the lawn can be exchanged for lounging by the pool, walking trails with a friend, or simply Living Up in your brand new home.
