My 55+ Roger Holloway YouTube video tours of 55 plus places include CRESSWIND from Kolter Homes, which shows great ranch living floor plans of homes for sale in Charlotte NC that are close to I485 and all things Charlotte. Plus, there's a new player in town - Imagery from Lennar Homes at Mountain Island Lake with waterfront 55+ Active Adult homes for sale, selling briskly as this is the only waterfront 55+ neighborhood in the greater Charlotte area. Epcon Communities' Courtyards are selling well, too with their unique courtyard space to the side of the one-story home.  Westport in Denver NC has similar courtyard floor plans. These plans feature the 55+ Active Adult courtyard plan with the ranch home next to it having no windows facing the courtyard, ensuring high levels of privacy as you enjoy one of Charlotte's best retirement communities.

Epcon Communities builds some of the Carolinas' most unique retirement communities locally, which include their Courtyards at Wesley Chapel near Weddington NC. The Kolter Group Cresswind 55+ near Mint Hill as well as the Lennar Homes Tree Tops (near Sun City Carolina Lakes) in the Indian Land - Fort Mill corridor are already getting attention from Baby Boomers who want to relocate and downsize to a ranch home. Carolina Orchards is the latest Del Webb - Pulte Homes retirement community, which will be strong for new construction ranch floor plans, as will Tree Tops from Lennar. Both Lennar Tree Tops and Del Webb Carolina Orchards are across the South Carolina state line in Fort Mill SC. Lennar's Imagery is just off I485 on Charlotte's northwest side.
