live simply

new right-sized homes, with life-sized
community amenities

In a Simple Life small cottage home community, neighbors own more than a home. You own a lifestyle. Connect at the pool, clubhouse, or community events. Stay healthy at the fitness center, make new four-legged friends at the dog park. Share the harvest from the community garden, or stories from your latest travel adventure. Purchase a 1 or 2-bedroom small cottage home and customize it for how you live. And with Simple Life’s flexible homesite lease you don’t carry the cost or burden of land ownership.

Put simply, it’s the best of both worlds.
