There is a new active adult community opening for Active Adults, ages 55 and over in the Greater Binghamton Area. Finally, the ever-growing mature homebuyer who may not be quite ready for retirement, will have a special place to call home, free of the maintenance and responsibility of the typical home they may have owned in the past. This active adult community, called Southerly Hills, is long overdue in the Southern Tier of Upstate New York and we welcome it with open arms!
Designed by a Baby Boomer himself, Salvatore Julian, this fifty-six acre, southerly-facing hillside active adult community features 164 one level residences designed with the mature, retired or active adult homebuyer in mind.
The Southerly Hills community boasts many, many amenities such as:
* lots of green space
* community center
* outdoor pool
* walking trails
* putting greens
* outdoor pavilions
* raised flower beds for gardening
* tennis courts
A full menu of activities awaits the new residents as well. Southerly Hills, like so many retired or adult communities like it in other states such as Florida and New Jersey, is a dream come true for the mature homeowners who are still working and active but are ready to give up the work associated with single family homes. Gone is all exterior maintenance such as mowing, snow removal, lawn maintenance and landscaping.
Right now, the developers are offering a special bonus. After choosing one of the eight floor plans, make a $2000 deposit by May 31st, 2010 and recieve $20,000 in residence upgrades! Upgrade the cabinet choices, lighting fixtures or flooring or choose to have a sunroom added. These are just some of the examples of what you can do with your $20,000!
With residences starting at $199,000, these homes offer our Baby Boomers affordable choices in new construction, something we have lacked here in the Greater Binghamton Area. Hopefully, the sale of these beautiful homes will spark even more construction adding to the fact that the Binghamton Area is one of the best places to reitre in the country!
If you live in the Southern Tier or would like to know more about retiring here or if you would like to take a look at this new community, "Southerly Hills", just call or email me today.
