55+ Retirement Communities in NC

Cresswind CharlotteNorth Carolina real estate is some of the most sought after by retirees, with many top-tier retirement and active adult communities and single family homes in resort style planned comunities. Active baby boomers especially appreciate the temperate NC climate's warm summers and mild winters that lends itself to outdoor recreation. In fact, you may meet many senior residents in the Carolinas who are fondly called halfbacks, as they moved from the colder Northeast to Florida, only to find they couldn't stand the heat, and moved half-way back north. The Tar Heel State has many unique attributes that make it a rewarding place to retire. Whether you want to live near the magnificent mountain scenery of the Blue Ridge range, beautiful Western NC, or take advantage of some of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses in the country, or enjoy boating among the barrier islands along the coast, there are North Carolina retirement communities to meet your requirements. There are hundreds of 55+ communities in North Carolina, from urban apartment and condominium communities in historic Charlotte or Raleigh to quieter age-restricted neighborhoods in quaint harbor towns or small mountain communities such as Beaufort or Hendersonville. Asheville, Highlands and Cashiers are know for their homes to be enjoyed in your retirement. If you equate retirement with long relaxing days on the golf course, you have a wealth of possibilities available for NC retirement communities. The number and quality of golf communities throughout North Carolina is one of the prime reasons the area is so popular with retirees. Along the state's northern coastline, several 55+ communities offer both golf course homes and marinas, along with a wide range of housing styles and prices. If you are looking for more exclusive, upscale retirement destinations, a number of new private golf communities in the Blue Ridge Mountains offer incredible scenic fairways and resort-style living, but at much loftier prices.

If you are drawn to the beauty of the mountains but are not a golfer, there are also a number of small towns nestled in North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains offering affordable retirement living options. Housing for retirees in these smaller mountain towns range from single family homes in newer master-planned communities, to smaller cottages, duplexes, and manufactured homes in established neighborhoods.

NC also has a number of retirement communities along the coastline. Baby boomers who enjoy boating and fishing, the tang of ocean air and beautiful water views have flocked to these 55+ ocean front developments in Wilmington and Brunswick County.
