Carolina Orchards: An Age-Restricted Community for Active Adults

Carolina Orchards is an age restricted community; however, 10% of the new home buyers can be between the ages of 50-55. Once sold out, it will be 100% 55 and over for at least one resident. As an active adult community, it is an established alternative lifestyle, a new type of community that offers independent, relatively maintenance-free living, but many residents will continue to work while living in an active adult community. These neighborhoods offer both a lifestyle and a sense of community, not just a piece of real estate.

If you are looking for a 55+ community in South Carolina but close to Uptown Charlotte and the airport, Carolina Orchards is the ticket. Del Webb’s newest active adult community in the Carolinas began construction in March 2016. The community is located in Fort Mill, SC, a quaint, historic town with quick access to all of Charlotte’s activities, amenities, and services.

Carolina Orchards is very similar in design and concept to Sun City Carolina Lakes but on a much smaller scale. It has all of the structural amenities and social opportunities available at SCCL but with only 700 homes versus over 3000 homes.

Carolina Orchards offers resort-style living. Whether you’re into tennis or pickleball, social groups or crafts, there’s something for everyone. Anne Springs Close Greenway is adjacent to Carolina Orchards and includes forty miles of natural surface trails, mountain biking, horseback riding, canoeing and kayaking, seasonal festivals, educational programs, fishing, and a dog park.

Nearby Springfield Town Shopping Center will meet most of your immediate shopping needs. And only minutes away is the Baxter Village town center where you can enjoy great dining, visit the library, or relax while listening to live music.

The community features three home series: The Passport Series, the Expedition Series, and the Pinnacle Series, with a total of nine floor plans, are all designed with easy living in mind. Some of the unique options available will be hearth rooms, golf cart garage parking, and spacious his and hers walk-in closets. Each home offers many elevations and the option for a loft, which adds an additional bedroom and bath as well as a living area that could also be used for storage.

The amenities include:
 • 21,000 square-foot clubhouse and amenity center
 • Full-time onsite Lifestyle Director to coordinate events
 • Year-round schedule of events and lifestyle activities
 • More than 20 clubs, social groups, and organizations
 • Outdoor resort-style pool

 • Grandkids play area
