If your life was an open book, what would you do with your time? Would you go kayaking on Lake Wylie, teach your grandchildren how to cook, or learn a new hobby? Whatever you’ve been meaning to do, living in a vibrant, maintenance-free NewStyle community lets you do it.

Our secret to a happy life is simple: simplify. But simplifying your home doesn’t mean sacrificing quality. In fact, downsizing has nothing to do with the word “down,” and everything to do with the word “right.”

In one of our maintenance-free communities in North and South Carolina, a luxurious and cozy new home fits your needs, allows you to live on your terms, and opens new doors each and every day.
