“Homebuyers, specifically baby boomers, pre-retirees, retirees and empty nesters – are the housing market’s fastest-growing category and there is no new construction available that meets the housing lifestyle needs of the 55+ market,” says Jim Marcero, president for the company’s operations in Columbus. “With its close proximity to amenities and employment corridors and highly-rated school district, The Retreat at Sycamore Creek provides a great opportunity to the underserved empty-nester in the area.”
According to Mr. Marcero, the company is focused on assessing opportunities to expand penetration of the active adult market by offering smaller, non-age restricted communities. In the Columbus area, two additional communities will also grand open in the first quarter of 2017, including The Retreat at Sunbury in Sunbury and The Retreat at Lake Forest in Pickerington.
“This is the first of three new communities catering to empty-nesters who are looking to downsize, prefer low-maintenance living and detached product, and are still working.”
The community offers 94 single-family homes with walking paths, open green space and and access to a community pool. The community is just minutes away to restaurants, shopping medical facilities and entertainment along the streets of nearby Pickerington or Canal Winchester.
The ranch style homes range in size from 1,683 – 2985 sq. ft. of living space with 2-4 bedrooms and 2-3 bathrooms with an open concept floor plan. Perfect for entertaining, these home designs include expansive owner’s suites, oversized showers, sitting rooms and first floor guest suites. Options include adding two-story living with loft space, sunrooms, and basements. Pricing starts at $199,990.
“We have already had an overwhelming response with our pre-selling efforts, which indicate pent-up demand for new home construction in a great location. We expect great success from this community and encourage buyers to take a look today as these homes will go quickly,” added Mr. Marcero.
