The first villas by Lifestyle Homes are designed to keep neighbours connected and cut costs on monthly energy bills. The Parkhouses is a boutique 31-unit development for buyers who are 50 years and older. Prices start from the low $500,000s. These villas have a rear-attached garage and are arranged as a pocket neighbourhood within the Okotoks community of Drake Landing.
Pocket neighbourhoods refer to a small group of homes oriented around a common open space, which is intended to serve as an area to meet and bond with neighbours. This format was a nice fit with the down-sizing segment of the market, says Michael Tandara, sales and marketing manger for Lifestyle Homes.
“It’s a lot quieter,” Tandara says. “Kids are no longer in the house and as they start to scale down, they start to seek that social interaction.”
