Location, Luxury and Lifestyle: Fairway Villas Residents Have It All
The secret is out: Today’s 55+ set can have it all––location, luxury and lifestyle––at Oakwood Homes Fairway Villas. Located just off Pena Blvd., minutes from DIA, downtown and amenities, this active community is drawing people from diverse backgrounds and locations who desire to make a change, and do it in style.
A vibrant community like Fairway attracts vibrant residents, like Liz Mercer. She hails from New Jersey but spent the last 40 years in Southern California working as a school nurse. She knew she wanted to retire to a “55 and better” community, so she researched options in desirable areas across the United States.
“When I came to tour Fairway Villas, I knew this was the fit for me,” Mercer explains. “I love outdoor activities, especially hiking and biking––and I love parties!” While she hasn’t yet moved in, Mercer has already found new friends in soon-to-be neighbors.
So just what is it that attracts people to Fairway? Regional Sales Manager Alisa Poncher says, “People are buying here because the home plans are updated, both in architecture and technologically—and they find it a great value.” Poncher also hears from residents that they appreciate the immediate sense of community. People will tell her that they lived in the same home for years but never got to know their neighbors.
Many 55+ communities have thousands of residents, while Fairway’s capacity is 221, providing a setting more conducive to neighborliness. Residents Jim and Sally Chisel explain, “We were drawn to this community for so many reasons: home values, location, diversity and the opportunity to live in a planned community that is committed to the needs of its residents.”
The Home: Efficiency + Luxury from the Start
Community aside, the home is where people eat, sleep, entertain and carry out their lives (and Poncher says that the people she talks to about Fairway have high standards). Builder Oakwood Homes set out to exceed those standards, designing the most ideal ranch homes with four customizable floor plans. Models offer gourmet kitchens, master “spa” baths, low-maintenance exteriors, and more. People can personalize their homes within a budget, focusing on the details that are most important.
The homes also offer a unique second-floor Smart Space, providing a large area that can be used as an office, extra bedroom, or a comfortable, private guest suite. An underground basement is still a choice for those who desire it.
The Experience: Golf, Gardens & Get-Out-and-Go
Residents can get exclusive benefits at the adjacent Green Valley Ranch Golf club, to include:
~ Par 3 course membership for life
~ Preferred tee times booked with an activities director
~ 9-day advance tee times for championship course
~ Significant discounts for homeowners and guests
~ Private golf carts
~ Exclusive events, activities, event space rental discounts, catering service and priority reservations—and more.
Located just outside the city, Fairway is close to DIA, major shopping centers and minutes from downtown Denver with its rich offering of activities: sports, theatres, museums, fine dining, and botanical gardens. For those who’d prefer to ride, the community is close to city bus service. It’s also minutes away from the Anschutz Medical Center.
The Lifestyle: From Social Butterfly to Bookworm
Fairway Villas offers a wide range of ongoing activities (four to five events each month) to foster a sense of community among residents and an active life. From happy hours and holiday gatherings to book clubs and Zumba, residents can join at will and as much or little as they like. Because Fairway is a new community, residents have more say as to which events and activities they’d like to see. Many potential residents attend events before they make a final decision to purchase a home. If you’re interested in coming to a future event, go to oakwoodhomesco.com/LivingWell.html. They would love to see you there!
