Amare Vita


An active adult community is a community specifically designed targeting the 55+ age group. These communities offer a multitude of advantages that cater to the unique needs and desires of individuals seeking an enriching lifestyle. These communities are appealing to individuals who are looking to eliminate some of the hassles of homeownership or who may have homes in multiple locations. These individuals also desire a place offering various amenities to foster physical activity and social interaction. At Amare Vita we seamlessly combine low-maintenance, carefree active adult living with the benefits of owning your own home. With no worries about lawn care and snow removal you can spend time doing the things you love. In addition, an array of incredible amenities including a clubhouse, heated swimming pool, fitness room, pickleball and bocce ball courts, a horseshoe pit and firepit are available to all residents.
There are HOA (Homeowners’ Association) fees which vary in amount based on the community. These fees cover the upkeep and maintenance of all communal areas including amenities like the swimming pool and clubhouse. The HOA also covers lawn care and snow removal for each property located within the community. The HOA fees for Amare Vita at Shadow Creek are currently set at $300/month.

     Low-maintenance living: This can be one of the most appealing aspects for residents. Fewer tiresome household tasks like lawn care and snow removal free your time to pursue new hobbies and adventures. You may also be rightsizing from a larger home, granting you the benefits of less to maintain, clean, organize and manage, liberating your mind from the stress that owning many possessions can cause. At Amare Vita we take care of burdensome tasks like lawn care and snow removal. We also know quality is paramount and that rightsizing does not have to mean lowering your standards. Our dedication to quality is evident in every detail, incorporating luxury features you may not expect to see.

    Social interaction: Residents of active adult communities tend to be of comparable age and places in life. Many are close to retiring or have retired and are looking forward to the next chapter. Having neighbors in similar stages of life can foster comradery and long-lasting friendships. Amare Vita communities encourage social interaction through the various rich amenities available, but also through the thoughtful community design. Walking paths and a central hub of activity only steps away provide residents with numerous opportunities to engage with neighbors and stay connected.

    Amenities: Many active adult communities offer a variety of amenities designed to help you live life to its fullest. At Amare Vita properties our exceptional amenities ignite a vibrant lifestyle. The clubhouse boasts approximately 2,200 square feet including a kitchen with countertop seating, a living area with a cozy fireplace and a pool table-perfect for hosting events or relaxing with friends. Additional amenities include a heated swimming pool, fitness room, pickleball and bocce ball courts, firepit and walking and biking paths. 

     Focus on long term well-being: Mobility becomes an issue as we age but well-designed homes offer subtle ways to help with this.  Wider door openings, larger turning radiuses, zero-entry options offer residents the opportunity to age in place without compromising luxury. This promotes both mental and physical health.

We offer single-family, stand-alone homes with no shared walls. With seven different single-level floor plans and a two-story floor plan to choose from, finding your dream home has never been easier. Your beautiful home is yours. We are not a co-op where a company owns the property, and you buy membership stock in the cooperative. Rather, at Amare Vita you purchase and own your home and lot.
