I love the new term, “and better.” This new term has emerged over the past few years, taking the place of “retirement community.” Have you seen these communities? They are gorgeous and filled with posh amenities that make my “40 and better” self swoon.
Kent Island has become a popular destination for retirees for 5 top reasons.
- It’s slower-paced, yet active, lifestyle on the water
- The close proximity to healthcare options.
- Ease of travel with major highways and BWI less than an hour away
- Lower taxes than on the Western Shore.
- Two new communities, Bay Bridge Cove and Four Seasons.
Bay Bridge Cove
Presented by McKee Builders, offers villa-style condos with a variety of models and a long list of options to create a custom-built home just for you! Each has either a one or two-car attached garage and is less than 2,000 sq. ft. The clubhouse is centrally located in the community and is beautifully designed from the furnishings in the lounge and meeting space, the finishes of the kitchen & bar, the fitness center, outdoor patio space including bocce ball, and tennis courts alongside the refreshing pool. There are less than 70 new construction lots left at Bay Bridge Cove. Schedule a tour soon and tell them you saw it on I love Kent Island.
A K. Hovnanian community, has announced their 24,000 sq. ft. waterfront clubhouse is under construction. I have seen the rendering and the clubhouse resembles a resort between the pool, lush landscaping, private beach, and marina. Four Seasons offers both detached single-family homes and luxury condominiums. They have a full-time activities director on staff with a variety of activities available daily including yoga, cooking and art classes, book club, and concerts! From their site map, it looks like they are at least 50% sold out of their phase 2 single-family homes. Schedule your tour soon and tell them you saw it on I Love Kent Island.
Even if an active adult community isn’t for you, there are a lot of other options available here on Kent Island. Waterfront properties to farms, condos to estates, and everything in between can be found on our little island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay.
