Maintenance-Free Living

Say goodbye to weekends full of mowing and home maintenance chores. Ladera communities handle front and backyard mowing and all common area maintenance, so you can lock and leave whenever your heart desires. Our gated communities also offer you added privacy and security, so you can travel to the other side of the world without worry.

Resort-Style Amenities

After working hard for most of your life, you deserve to feel like you’re on vacation every day! Ladera 55+ communities are designed with luxurious amenities to keep you active and connected with your neighbors.

Enjoy private clubhouses, pools, pickleball courts, putting greens, fitness facilities, game rooms, miles of walking trails, a packed event calendar, and so much more.

Host Family & Friends

Another downside to traditional retirement communities is that many restrict visitor hours and do not permit overnight visits. When you own a low-maintenance home in a 55+ community, you have the flexibility to host friends and family members in your own space at any time.

Ladera also offers dozens of floorplans with the ability to personalize your living space for any need, including loft areas for the grandkids to enjoy when they visit or a mother-in-law suite for an aging family member.

Meet New Friends

Socializing is an effective way to maintain an active lifestyle and meet people with similar interests. If you are stuck on how to choose a DFW 55+ community, consider a community with adequate social space. 

The HUB in Ladera communities provide a communal area where homeowners gather for social events. Here, you’ll have access to gathering spaces and game rooms, grills and lounge areas by the pool, pickleball courts for your next friendly competition, exercise rooms equipped with weights and machines, and community kitchens for cooking classes and parties.
