Twenty years ago, architect Sarah Susanka launched her book, The Not So Big House: A Blueprint for the Way We Really Live, which encourages quality of life over quantity of square feet, floorplans that boast spaces that we use every day, and living spaces that reflect the lifestyle and interests of their owners.
Susanka’s Not So Big concept is particularly applicable to Active Adults, whose desire to downsize (at Windsong, we prefer to call it rightsizing), placing an emphasis on lifestyle, surrounding oneself with the things that bring joy, and using the spaces daily instead of just for special occasions.
Now Pre-Selling Grace, Our Newest Community in Acworth.
Grace is a beautiful Active Adult 55+ community featuring 66 ranch homes with fantastic outdoor living options. From patios and screened-in porches to courtyard retreats and elegant sunrooms, our homes provide outdoor space perfect for entertaining. This quaint community beckons you home where you will experience a throw back to simpler times where neighbors become friends.
Finding the right home to suit your updated lifestyle is an exciting time, as you simplify your life, discard the “stuff” that crowded you before (even if you weren’t aware), and meet neighbors who have similar life experiences and expectations as you do. Sometimes that means dealing with older family members who perhaps don’t need to be behind the wheel of a car; or learning how to improve our own driving safety as health issues (and new auto technology) comes into play.
Anyone who has ever visited Mackinac Island in Michigan’s Lake Huron knows that the 3.8-square-mile resort is one of the few places left untouched by automobiles. Travel is limited to horse and buggy, bicycle, or foot-power, which is why in the 1970s, W.T. Rabe, who served as public relations director for the island’s Grand Hotel, created “World Sauntering Day,” to encourage people to slow down to Mackinac Time.
