Set just off Chimney Rock on Bering Drive, newly-opened Overture Tanglewood is a 55 and over rental community offering active adults, 55+ – whether they’re simply over the house payments or wish to pursue alternative passions– the chance to continue an active lifestyle while experiencing a period of new discovery, all with their convenience and comfort in mind.
“The baby boomers are at that time in their lives when they’re over the house and maintenance; they want to do different things in their life, so it’s coming at the right time,” Community Manager Emily Collins said.
Overture offers traditional 12-, 15- and 18-month leases, but also began offering 3- and 6-month leasing options in Harvey’s immediate aftermath to serve a desperate community’s need.
“We provide a variety of options, which is great because people have a wide array of length-of-stay needs. This is also more of a social environment, so you know your neighbors,” she said. “There really isn’t anything like this within a walkable distance of all the amenities you have here.”
In total, Overture Tanglewood offers approximately 30 different floor plans. Some residences have book shelves or built-in desks, while nearly all possess a walk-in style shower with a granite seat, and about 90 percent have French doors opening onto patios overlooking the trees and pool area as well as the private courtyard space – almost as if residents have their own backyard.
“We realize people are trying to find something unique and that fits their needs, so we have a lot of different layouts to help with that. We’ve thought of every detail from the finishes to the fixtures to offer that luxury feeling,” Collins said.
The day begins with offerings such as a continental breakfast every morning; as well as a private dining room for parties; and the outdoor courtyard, grill and dining space for the evening. Recreationally, Overture offers a film club and book club; along with an on-site state-of-the-art fitness center; a heated pool comfortable year-round; along with an on-site yoga studio with on-demand fitness; an on-site salon; and an indoor game room and movie room for those wanting to kick back.
Furthermore, you will experience endless freedom with their maintenance-free living. You will have more time to enjoy the finer things in life at your own pace.
“You live with your peer group, and you’re in an environment where you’re surrounded by people your own age and share the same interests,” Collins said.
For those residents still working, an evening happy hour awaits each night along with other engaging opportunities like cooking classes and a private courtyard to enjoy such activities.
Then, for those possibly transitioning out of the workforce and into retirement, Collins believes the variety of activities allows for a time of new discoveries through both their physical nature and allowance for personal connections.
“You can discover new hobbies and different social connections you didn’t have when you were working,” she said. “When you stop working and going to the office, you miss the people part of it, and those are the type of things I think people are looking for when they’re within their peer group.”
On the surface, the move from a home to an apartment may appear to be downsizing; but Collins believes that the access to everything within the 15,000 square feet of amenity space (in addition to their personal residence ) ultimately makes up the difference.
“Your new home size may be smaller than your house, but you’re opened up to all these on-site amenities,” she said. “You’ve got all this space, but you don’t have to do the maintenance on it.”
Overture Tanglewood is open seven days a week for tours and to explore all of the amenities the property has to offer. Prices normally begin at $2,000, but Collins said Overture Tanglewood is running a move in special which offers three months free rent (essentially bringing starting prices down to around $1,500) for a limited time only
