What are active-adult communities?

Designed specifically for homeowners age 55 and up, active-adult communities have become a popular destination for those who wish to enjoy an active, low-maintenance lifestyle as they approach or embark upon their retirement years. 

The Regency Collection by Toll Brothers appeals to discerning empty nester/active-adult home buyers who are looking for an exquisitely designed home in a vibrant, luxury community. From resort-style living to a full social calendar of events and countless conveniences, Toll Brothers offers homebuyers an array of amenities at its Regency Collection communities that make it easier for residents to live life to the fullest each and every day. 

The lifestyle and social environment of Toll Brothers active-adult communities are highly sought after. Onsite amenities differ by community but may include indoor/outdoor swimming pools and spas, pickleball and tennis courts, bocce, dog parks, community gardens, fitness centers, billiards and card rooms, and much more. Additionally, onsite lifestyle directors are dedicated to facilitating a variety of social activities and events for residents. 

Our active-adult homebuyers also appreciate our open floor plans, modern designs, and luxury features. In addition, the fantastic locations of Toll Brothers communities make our homes very appealing over the long term. And, our active-adult homebuyers appreciate the peace of mind that comes with buying new construction.

We are continuing to see the trend of people purchasing their retirement home earlier than usual while still remaining employed full time. Many of these buyers now have the ability to work remotely, and they want to buy their dream home in an active-adult community and start enjoying that lifestyle even sooner than planned.

In response to the growing demand, Toll Brothers has recently opened new Regency Collection active-adult communities in markets from coast to coast. Explore some of the best active-adult communities offered across the country below, and visit our website to learn more.

      • Toll Brothers says:

        Hi Marilyn, we do not currently have any plans to build Active-Adult communities in Tennessee. We hope this answers your question. Thanks!

    4. Sheri says:

      Hi there we love a home in the Montaine Boulder series in Castle rock 55+ will you start building anymore communites North for active adults in the Boulder/Broomfield area with those same style of home? Or can you ask Toll Brothers if they will build your favorite home in Erie for example (if there is only a model of what you want in Castle rock?

      • Toll Brothers says:

        Hi, Sheri. We have yet to make plans to build more active adult communities in the Boulder/ Broomfield area. If you want the Greyson, the home design is only available at Regency at Montaine – Boulder Collection. If you are interested in the Montview, please explore the other communities that feature the home design on our website.

        We, unfortunately, cannot build any home design in a specific community, given our careful consideration for lot sizes and such. The available home designs to select from for a community are listed on our website. We hope this answers your question. Thanks!
