Life At Bella Vita, a 55+ Active Adult Community?

Bella Vita is a haven for active adults seeking luxury living in the serene suburbs in a highly walkable community. Each of the community’s beautiful apartments offers breathtaking views of the majestic Front Range—and seamless access to buses, I-70, and I-225.

Living in an all-inclusive 55+ community can offer several advantages, depending on your lifestyle preferences and needs:

    • Easier monthly budgeting. Many older adults are on a fixed income, and the last thing they need is unexpected expenses. With an all-inclusive community, there are no surprises, making it easier to plan for the future, whether that includes travel or other activities.
    • Age-appropriate amenities. Bella Vita features amenities tailored to the needs and interests of older adults, such as a well-equipped fitness center, theater room, game room, dog park, complementary coffee bar, and a third-floor terrace with spectacular views.
    • Sense of belonging. Residents often share similar life experiences and interests, fostering community and camaraderie. This can lead to meaningful friendships and social connections with neighbors who understand and relate to your stage of life.
    • Quiet and peaceful environment. Since 55+ communities enforce age restrictions, this usually means a more tranquil and peaceful living environment compared to mixed-age neighborhoods. This can be appealing to those who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere.
    • Downsizing opportunities. Many older adults choose to downsize their living space as they retire, and 55+ communities make downsizing easier and more manageable. This can free up time for residents to pursue hobbies, travel, or simply relaxation.
    • Sense of community. Being surrounded by peers in a similar life stage can provide a sense of belonging and purpose, helping older adults adjust to retirement and navigate the challenges and opportunities that come with aging.
