The Benefits of Active Adult 55+ Living

Personalized Designs

Choose the exact features and finishes you want from Van Metre’s spectacular Design Centre.

Community Amenities

Discover new ways to stay fit, dive into hobbies or relax with new friends who share your take on life.


Because Van Metre takes maintenance off your plate—from landscaping to clearing snow—you’re free to grab your passport and enjoy the world.

Conveniently Located

Whether you want to be closer to nature or moments from restaurants and shops—live near the things that matter most.

Put a New Spin on Your Social Life

Becoming part of a new community means discovering new friends with common interests. You’ll introduce each other to your existing circle of friends. In so many ways, a Van Metre 55+ community expands your horizons when you have the time to explore.

Give “Active Adult” Your Own Definition

Try some things that are new to you, like yoga or pickleball. Enjoy nearby trails on that mountain bike you’ve looked at so many times. Thrill your neighbors with your cooking skills or wine expertise, then laugh with them under the stars. There’s never been a better time than now!

Get Peace of Mind

Quality new construction and our ongoing maintenance make owning your new home virtually carefree—perfect for a lock-and-go lifestyle. So while Van Metre’s 55+ Active Adult communities are all different, there’s one thing they all have in common: low-maintenance and worry-free living.
