Designed not as a place for seniors to start a new life, but for active adults to continue their current lifestyle, this campus provides residents the options needed to live the lifestyle they enjoy. The campus includes independent (The Heritage Tradition) and assisted (The Heritage Legacy) living on 11.17 acres.

The Tradition features five floor plans ranging from one-bedroom apartments to two-bedroom apartments with a den. The eclectic configuration of unique floor plans and their arrangement along the building’s perimeter not only create an architecturally dynamic façade, but also integrate exterior space into the interior circulation areas. Designed to reflect the diverse range of residents’ interests, the community offers programs that entertain, enlighten and stimulate a lifestyle of good health and help to maintain an active mind. The centrally-located clubhouse includes a theater, billiards, fitness center, beauty salon, computer center, and a lobby featuring an interior landscaped sculpture garden. The integration and connection of interior and exterior spaces strengthen the relationship of the clubhouse to the dual courtyards flanking it. Outdoor amenities complement the indoor recreational facilities while offering the atmosphere of a resort with catered living.

Maintaining the design quality of The Tradition, The Legacy’s three resident wings are centered on the beautiful main entry. The two-story lobby greets guests and residents and sets the tone for the community. Its warm colors, elegantly cascading staircase and classic décor are flooded with natural light, creating an ambience of dramatic luxury that is continued throughout the community.
