Definition of an Active Adult Community:

Active Adult Community housing refers to either an age-targeted or an Age-restricted community designed for people aged 55 or older (sometimes 50 or older, but certain restrictions may apply).

Homes for active adults tend to be single family detached homes, and typically range from 1500 to 2,000 square feet, and lots tend to be less than a quarter of an acre.  “In single-family detached homes, two full bathrooms and three bedrooms are most common. In multi-family units, one bathroom and two bedrooms are most common.

Lake Norman Active Adult Communities 55+  are often designed for complete single-floor living, with features like laundry facilities and the master bedroom and bathroom on the first floor. Active adult homes have few, if any, steps to get into the home.  Home exteriors are planned to require little or maintenance-free living , and often a monthly association fee includes landscaping and yard maintenance.
