Good News for Those Looking to Retire in South Carolina!

By Lee Keadle Published 08/30/2007 | Real Estate

Many people like to retire somewhere warm, and with plenty of fun things to do. The sub-tropic climate of South Carolina, and the historic charm of Charleston in particular, make this area an appealing choice.

An exciting new Del Webb retirement community is currently under construction in Summerville, just 45 minutes from downtown Charleston. While the models are still under construction, they are available for viewing by interested buyers. The official model park grand opening is September 15th, but those curious enough to view early may be rewarded with some buyers incentives.

One of the major advantages of choosing a planned retirement community is safety and easy living. In a Del Webb retirement community you not only know your neighbors, you have a lot in common with them. The yards are low maintenance, and the homes are high quality. Pulte Homes, the builder for Del Webb Charleston in Summerville, has a long history of building high end homes, and this means peace of mind for buyers. There's also a wide variety of home styles to choose from.

At Del Webb Charleston, your social life and personal development will be a priority. In addition to golf, there's the fitness center, featuring aerobics classes, fitness training and staff to help you out with anything. Or you can enjoy the variety of pools at your leisure, play tennis, bocce, horseshoes, lawn bowling or any one of dozens of sporting activities. There's hot-tubs, hiking trails, dance studios and just about anything you could want to do.

There's also a performing arts center, continuing education classrooms, library, craft center and computer lab. There are plans to have a  full-time lifestyle director on staff here, someone to plan classes and workshops in things like yoga and french, and to help you decide what to do with yourself if you can't decide between all the amazing options!

If the working world still calls occasionally, or a volunteer interest needs space to meet, residents will be able to take advantage of the conference rooms.

If you enjoy the outdoors, there is a community garden planned here, plus a pond and protected wetland areas for your enjoyment. And yes, your grandchildren are welcome to visit.

Living at Del Webb Charleston will give residents access to the amenities in  Summerville, as well as the larger city of Charleston. This new retirement community is promising to be truly great, offering so much within itself and central to so much more. I expect it to be very popular. If you'd like more information, or to set up a viewing, don't hesitate to contact me about it.
