The Continuing Care Retirement Community embodies an “age in place” philosophy, accommodating residents in a variety of living arrangements. These include 250 independent living apartments in three-story buildings, 48 garden apartments in two-story buildings, and 72 single-story villas in the hills at the edge of the campus, for a total of 370 units. A 90,000 sf health care center includes a 45-bed skilled nursing facility.
Buildings are sited around courtyards of varying size and character connected by walkways. Arcades and trees offer shade; a lake, koi ponds and fountains, tranquility. Plentiful active recreation amenities include a swimming pool and spa, bocci ball, golf and tennis facilities, and an 8,200 sf recreation building. A 33,000 square feet Commons Building contains a 280-seat dining facility, a library with fireplace and beam ceilings, drinking establishment, card and billiard rooms among numerous congenial gathering, activity and entertainment spaces for residents and their guests.
Planning the 65-acre site required consideration of 25 acres of land that was to be left as natural riparian corridor. Walking trails allow residents to enjoy the natural setting of forested creek beds and mountain vistas.
