If you haven’t heard of Universal Design, it is the new way of planning homes that makes living easier for people as they age.  Universal Design considers accessible movement, helpful technology, visibility, and flexibility.  Coming to live at Scotch Hall Preserve allows you the opportunity to buy a homesite and create the custom retirement home of your dreams, that just may include Universal Design.  Alternatively, you can buy one of the already built homes on the property and make modifications that adhere to the standards of Universal Design. We have a team of talented and committed builders ready to work with you. Some of the key points of Universal Design to consider are:
  • Wide doorways and hallways
  • Lever handles for doors
  • Ample lighting
  • Stable and firm surfaces
  • Slip-resistant flooring
  • Limited or no stairs
Work with builders to include some or all of these components that will make your retirement home at Scotch Hall Preserve perfect for everyone, especially you! To read more about Universal Design see http://www.universaldesign.com/
