Simplify and Thrive: A Look Inside Life at Trendsetting 55+ Condos

A Turnkey Approach to a Simplified Life

It’s an age-old rite of passage: The kids have graduated, moved out, and moved on. The highly anticipated empty nest stage has officially begun. With newfound time on their hands, many empty nesters are eager to free themselves from oversized houses that no longer fit their needs. Sound familiar?

Allen’s growing population of active adults aged 55 and better are discovering Gatherings at Twin Creeks, the 55+ condo community by Beazer Homes. Gatherings is designed for those looking to downsize without sacrificing the must-haves in their homes.

“Our residents are usually at a phase where they just want more time to enjoy the lifestyle they’ve been working toward. They’re drawn to Gatherings because they can focus less on home maintenance and more on the things they want to do, like pursuing their passions,” says Jason Oates, Division President for Beazer Homes Dallas/Ft. Worth.

“Life is so much simpler in the condo lifestyle,” says Debbie Smith, a current Gatherings resident in the Dallas area. “It really is a lock and leave situation. There is no maintenance to speak of.”

The hallmark of Gatherings living is the low-maintenance way of living, which includes everyday conveniences like trash valet service, professionally maintained grounds, secure building entrances, and a garage for every home. And just outside the property is a thriving neighborhood bursting with amenities and shopping.

Life at Gatherings

In a community of neighbors who have all decided Gatherings is where the next best chapter of life begins, a natural social network emerges. “We made a lot of new friends,” Smith says. “We really love it there.”

Onsite amenities at Gatherings at Twin Creeks include an amenity center pool with private club house, fitness center, Yoga and event lawn, pickle ball court, and a community garden.

“At the heart of Gatherings living are built-in opportunities for socialization, fitness, and recreation in an area bustling with energy. It invites a rich social experience to grow among adults in similar life stages. We love building communities where lifelong friendships spark,” says Oates.

Delight in a Lower Cost of Living

Gatherings homes are more than just beautiful spaces at affordable prices. Underneath it all is a series of built-in energy efficiencies to help homeowners save on utilities.

Sharing the same high standards as all Beazer homes, the condo buildings are ENERGY STAR® certified, with energy-efficient details in place to increase comfort and lower monthly utility costs.

The focus on energy efficiency was icing on the cake for Smith. “A big bonus for us was that our utility bills are a third to half of what we were paying before,” she said.

Energy savings is central to the value Beazer delivers in all their homes. So that homeowners know just what to expect, they share an estimated monthly energy cost for each home. “We like to help buyers to anticipate their expenses from the start,” Oates explained. “We’ve put this practice in place not only for single-family homes, but for our 55+ condos as well. With our construction practices, the average monthly energy costs for Gatherings at Twin Creeks are about $95* per month.”
