Adult Life Style

Adult Life Style refers to houses or condos which are designed primarily for adults.

Often these will be one level living, with the master bedroom and laundry on the same floor as the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Most will have a focus on entertaining spaces: great kitchen for cooking, dining room, living room, and outdoor “rooms” to take advantage of nice weather and enjoy with friends and family.

There are also “life lease” communities, wherein the right to live in the property community resides with an individual or couple until their death or they move out. Life-lease projects cater mainly to adults 55 years in age and older, and many have restrictions on who can occupy the unit. (See our life leases page for more information.)

You can see some of the beautiful adult lifestyle homes below. You are also welcome to contact Eric Manherz for a custom list of all properties in the Ottawa area that align with your specific preferences and criteria.

Seniors downsizing in Ottawa - where will you go?

Are you a Baby Boomer?

If so, then chances are you are retired, about to retire, or at the very least watching your kids leave the nest.

Either way, you may well have broached the subject of “downsizing” – trading in the space, labour, and cost of the family house in favour of something smaller and simpler.

And, because you are Baby Boomers – that demographic juggernaut – developers are taking notice.

“We’re definitely tapping into that boomer market,” says Denis Laporte, founder of EQ Homes, the  developer of Equinelle, a new lifestyle community in Kemptville, Ontario.
