While capturing the gracious history and mission of the former Sumner Home, this new and progressive 64-acre master-planned Life Plan Community is not a retirement community, but a Living Community. This lifestyle of independence is translated into the site planning and architecture and is very clearly embodied in the entry drive, framing a formal garden, leading to the gracious Manor House, which includes the central community spaces and wellness center. It interconnects with an 80-unit three-story Garden Apartment plus carriage house-style parking garage. Villas in four-unit clusters provide independent living and 24-unit bungalow-style Green Houses, consisting of assisted living and skilled care units.
