How Ladera Communities Differ from Other 55+ DFW Communities

There are numerous 55+ DFW communities promising empty nesters a low-maintenance lifestyle with great amenities. But how do you know which community is the best fit for your needs?

Ladera communities are not your standard 55+ community because we offer more semi-custom home choices, intimiate neighborhoods, and amenities tailored for the active adult. Read on to discover more ways Ladera communities differ from traditional 55+ DFW communities.

Highly Personalized, Low Maintenance Homes

You won’t find a cookie cutter neighborhood here. Ladera communities feature a wealth of floorplans including single-story, 1.5-story, and 2-story designs with multiple elevation and design choices to give each buyer the ability to personalize their home. This also creates beautiful streetscapes thanks to the variety of homes throughout the neighborhood.

Ladera floorplans are right-sized to offer the ideal amount of space for empty nesters who may no longer want to maintain a 4-bedroom home and large backyard. Our DFW homes feature open-concept spaces that live large, plenty of storage spaces, courtyards that replace high-maintenance yards, and flexible rooms that can be utilized as craft or hobby rooms, home offices, or extra space for the grandkids.

Close-Knit Communities

Ladera 55+ communities are gated, smaller-scale neighborhoods for a reason. When you live in a larger 55+ DFW community, you may find it difficult to meet your neighbors and utilize popular community amenities due to high demand.

Because Ladera communities are designed small, homeowners are able to connect with the entire neighborhood and enjoy our pickleball courts, pools, clubhouse lounges, and workout room equipment without a long wait time.

Every Ladera community also features events and activites to bring neighbors together throughout the year, including game nights, pickleball tournaments, workout classes, and so much more.

Unique Amenities

Another way our communities are different from other 55+ DFW communities? We offer fabulous amenities that cater to the active adult lifestyle.

Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation thanks to its low-impact nature and slower pace compared to tennis. We’re proud to not only feature pickleball courts in all of our communities but also offer putting greens and pristine walking trails to help homeowners stay active.

“The Hub” clubhouse is the heartbeat of every Ladera community. Bustling with activity, neighbors gather to play cards and watch football games in the open lounging rooms, fit a workout in at the on-site fitness room, relax by the resort-style pool and firepit, and attend community events held throughout the year.

Lock-and-Leave Lifestyle

One of the best parts about living in a Ladera 55+ community is you’ll finally have access to the lock-and-leave way of life. Each community’s owners’ association manages and cares for exterior maintenance on every home so you can spend your free time doing what you love most. Our gated communities also offer homeowners peace of mind when they are traveling or away from home.

At Ladera, we pride ourselves on creating 55+ communities where homeowners can take advantage of active adult living and develop meaningful new relationships with their neighbors. We invite you to discover how life at a Ladera community can benefit you. Contact us today for more information about our communities and new DFW homes.
