Bungalow buyers

Single-level homes are in high demand among retirees planning for their future

For active senior JoAnn Fetzner, who golfs three times a week and travels widely, one-level, bungalow living was an obvious choice for the rest of her life.

For empty-nester Patti Clarkson, 54, who is easing her way into retirement, her recently purchased bungalow villa will be the perfect "forever home."

Villa living in small-town serenity

The Parkhouses in Okotoks to launch May 1

A "pocket neighbourhood" in the popular Okotoks community of Drake Landing will be offering active, mature homebuyers an alternative to constricted apartment-style living.

The Parkhouses, a unique 50-plus adult-living project by Lifestyle Homes, will launch sales May 1.

The neighbourhood will include 31 semi-detached villa-style bungalows with front porches and rear-attached garages that will all face inward to a common park space for residents.
This pocket neighbourhood designed to promote social interaction between neighbours will be a first for the town just 18 kilometres south of Calgary.
