Catching Up with the Villages



Masonic Village at Elizabethtown

Options abound at the Masonic Village at Elizabethtown! The popularity of the brand new retirement living cottages being built between the formal gardens and the veterans grove have caused the project to move along quickly. Thirty-eight have been completed and another 24 are under construction due to high demand. Up to 100 cottages may be built at this site, all with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a sunroom with options for a den, two-car garage and a select number with basements.

There's also immediate availability in the Sycamore Apartments. Those interested in moving soon may be able to take advantage of a $10,000 monthly service fee credit incentive currently being offered on two-bedroom apartment reservations.

Masonic Village at Lafayette Hill

Growth is on the horizon for the Masonic Village at Lafayette Hill! The community is pre-marking 45 brand new retirement living apartments to meet the growing need for active 60+ living in the Philadelphia area. The new building will include a mix of one-bedroom, 1½-bath apartments with approximately 800 sq. ft. of living space and two-bedroom, two-bath apartments with approximately 1,120 sq. ft. of living space. All of the apartments will feature a patio or balcony, walk-in closets and stainless steel appliances. This addition will bring the total number of retirement living apartments on the campus to 143.

Connected to the original building, the more than 62,000 sq. ft. addition provides convenient indoor access to amenities and activities throughout the campus, as well as common areas and an interior courtyard for residents' enjoyment.

At the same time as the new building is being constructed, the façade of the existing building will be updated to match the significant renovations made to the interior in recent years and to give it a more contemporary look.

Construction will begin once 70 percent of the apartments have been reserved, and the project is expected to be completed in late 2013 or early 2014. Residents have access to on-campus amenities including two restaurants and varied recreational options including an in-house bowling alley, wellness center and trips to local attractions. With security and convenience among friendly neighbors, you'll experience options for everything from the style of your home to the clubs you participate in and amenities you enjoy. Enjoy life's vibrance with maintenance-free retirement living so you have time to appreciate all the people and moments that matter most.
