As I help my parents sort through 50+ years of a shared life together, I find myself thinking of others at this same crossroads. Through the course of our lives, housing needs inevitably change.
What used to be termed “downsizing” has become “rightsizing” as some seniors may opt for more square footage than they previously had in the family home!
Those who travel extensively may prefer a condo with easy airport access. Couples starting a family often find themselves cramped, and longing for more space, yet as we become empty nesters, we may seek a home with less yard to maintain. Everyone has their own “right size” depending on their needs, and lifestyle.
Thankfully, my parents are both healthy, but stairs aren’t as easy as they used to be, so it is fitting they have decided to change their lifestyle to one level apartment living. I’m excited for them to be free of the burden of home/yard maintenance and enjoy this next chapter of their lives with fewer obligations inherent in homeownership.
As the Baby Boomer generation ages, there is increasing demand for one level living, and ranches are having a moment (again) for just that – linear, one level floor plans. In Nashville, so many of them sit on an acre or more, and are increasingly torn down, or had a second story added. There are more buyers for one level living than there is inventory in our city.
One new project due for completion in December is Poston at the Park. A long overdue development of boutique condominiums at Centennial Park with one level units ranging from 1552sf – 3300sf. Pricing will start in the $500k range, and the 27 units will vary with seven floor plan options, and two penthouse floor plans. The building will have luxury amenities such as a salt water lap pool, fitness center, rooftop terrace, fire pits, and office space for Poston owners to use. Available exclusively through Village RES, feel free to contact me for more information.
Have a happy 4th of July, stay safe, and remember to keep pets secured indoors during fireworks!
And for our local oenophiles, Happy Wine in Grocery Stores Day!
