On the Move – In Your Element at Viridian, TX
by Kim Henry
Approaching retirement often means a move is on the horizon. Many want to be closer to the grandkids, enjoy easy access to a range of amenities, or soak up year-round sunshine. For Melton and Linda Graham, it was a desire to downsize from their lifelong family home that prompted them to start the search for a new location. Luckily for them, they didnâ€™t have to look for very long before they found their ideal spot.
Viridian, close to Arlington, TX, had everything they were looking for and even a few things they didnâ€™t know they wanted! â€œI wasnâ€™t completely sure about going to live in a 55+ community,â€ explains Linda, â€œbut the minute I went to Viridian, I thought to myself, ‘this is going to be perfect.’â€
The master-planned community is in the process of completing its new 141-acre 55+ development, Elements. With the stunning natural beauty of the Viridian community as its backdrop, Elements offers a variety of homes designed by some of the areas finest builders, David Weekley Homes, Drees Custom Homes, and Lennar Homes.
Needing to downsize and find their forever home, the Grahams are now looking forward to the completion of their single level 2,500 square foot home. â€œItâ€™s stylish and comfortable with a few age-in-place features to accommodate our time of life, such as wide doorways and extra spacious showers,â€ smiles Linda.
With a host of luxury amenities available, including a â€˜pool that I donâ€™t have to clean,â€™ Linda canâ€™t wait to kick back and enjoy the good life without having to be responsible for endless repairs and maintenance. This ease and peace of mind create lots more time and energy for the Meltons to be able to visit nearby family, make the most of Viridianâ€™s inspiring workshops, and relish the peaceful scenery.
