The key to successfully aging in place is planning ahead and finding a home that can adapt to your needs throughout your time there.
Of course, that is difficult since no one knows exactly what those will be, but Trophy Signature Homes has compiled a few general guidelines that will help structure your search for an active adult community in Dallas-Fort Worth like Uptown Crossing.
Facilitating a Forever Home
According to the 2018 AARP Home and Community Preferences Survey, 76 percent of respondents would like to stay in their current residence for as long as possible. Seventy-seven percent said the same thing about their community.
In response, the AARP has outlined their standards for Livable Communities that include safe, walkable streets; age-friendly housing and transportation; access to needed services; and opportunities for residents to participate in community life. Dallas and Fort Worth are both included in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly States and Communities, reflecting their commitment to making the cities a great place to live.
Often, these same sentiments apply when builders like Trophy Signature Homes set out to create a space that allows for aging in place. This is also referred to as “Inclusive Design” or “Universal Design” in the industry because it ultimately helps everyone, not just older adults.
Uptown Crossing was designed to prioritize these needs with carefully-planned features and an energetic atmosphere. This up and coming it-neighborhood is available for age 55+ adults looking to entertain, engage and socialize.
Set in Allen, TX, Uptown Crossing is loaded with amenities like a resort-style swimming pool, pickleball courts, sculpture garden, and fire pits where residents can connect and unwind throughout the seasons. The clubhouse is a popular spot too with scheduled social gatherings and a large, outdoor kitchen available to residents.
Its location near Watters Creek at Montgomery Farms and the Allen Outlet Mall puts you close to some of the area’s best patio dining and shopping. Allen is also home to two award-winning golf courses: The Golf Club at Twin Creeks and The Courses at Watters Creek.
Trophy Signature Homes offers eight distinct floor plans here and all are single-story for your convenience. Homes range from 1,642 to 2,591 square feet with two and three bedrooms.
