September 2022 If you’re 55+, you may have gotten to the point in your life where your home just doesn’t fit your lifestyle any longer. Maybe your home has much more space than you really need or you’re just tired of spending so much free time working to maintain it. If this sounds familiar, Epcon Communities offers a perfect solution to your problem with its two new low-maintenance communities, The Courtyards of Carmel and The Courtyards of Westfield. Although Epcon Communities is new this year to the Carmel and Westfield areas, the home builder has developed more than 60 communities in the Columbus, Ohio, area since it was founded in 1986. In addition to Columbus, Epcon Communities is also currently building in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina, and will soon be launching in Nashville, Tennessee, andAtlanta, Georgia. Anyone in the 55+ age demographic who has been looking in the Carmel/Westfield area for a new home has unfortunately discovered that there are very few acceptable options. Through extensive research, Epcon Communities has captured the features most desired by homeowners and through creative design has incorporated these features into its homes. Ultimately, Epcon Communities has taken the design of luxury ranch homes that feature single-story living to a whole new level. Specifically, Epcon Communities’ homes feature open floorplans, abundant natural light and private outdoor courtyards that are designed to be a focal point of the house. Just as importantly, with Epon Communities, you will be able to throw out that snow shovel and get rid of that old lawn mower, because Epcon Communities offers homes that are low maintenance. Designing and building homes with all the features homeowners are looking for is just the first step. Equally important to the design of the home is the feel of the community itself. Epcon Communities works incredibly hard to create an enjoyable community atmosphere for the 55+ homeowner and has incorporated first-class amenities in its two newest communities. These include a clubhouse, pool, fitness center, pickleball and a bocce ball court. THE COURTYARDS OF CARMEL The Courtyards of Carmel is a 55+ low-maintenance community with a plan to build 149 luxury ranch homes. It is ideallylocated on the east side of Keystone Avenue between 136th and 146th streets. Its location makes it extremely convenient for shopping and dining because it’s just minutes from Clay Terrace, downtown Carmel’s Arts and Design District and the Monon Trail. Presently, construction is in full swing, with the completion of the clubhouse and the first homeowner closing expected thisfall. Epcon Communities recently celebrated the grand opening of a model home in The Courtyards of Carmel, which is Epcon’s first in the Indianapolis area. Pricing of homes in The Courtyards of Carmel will start in the upper $400k range. Even before the first model home was com-pleted, sales in The Courtyards of Carmel have been very strong. In fact, 30 percent of the home sites in The Courtyards of Carmel have already been sold. In The Courtyards of Carmel, Epcon Communities offers seven different floorplans. Depending on the floorplan, homes range in size from 2 to 4 bedrooms and 1,700 to 4,000 square feet. For those interested in making a move right away, Epcon Communities plans to have homes completed this year for quick move-ins. THE COURTYARDS OF WESTFIELD Although it’s not specifically restricted to ages 55+, The Courtyards of Westfield offers 89 ranch homes with the same orsimilar amenities and designs as the The Courtyards of Carmel, including a clubhouse, pool, fitness center and pickleball courts. In addition, The Courtyards of Westfield’s location at Towne Road and 146th Street makes it equally convenient for shopping and dining at Clay Terrace or for accessing the Monon Trail.
