For one, you may be looking forward to connecting with other 55+ adults, or you may be motivated by all the amenities active adult communities offer. You may also be thrilled by the opportunity to design your home to best suit your lifestyle.

For years Del Webb, one of the nation’s best quality home builders has been building new residences in Ave Maria neighborhoods designed for active seniors. From our collection of dream house floor plans to our curated selections of granite countertops, tile and hardwood floors, and more, we give you the opportunity to pick a plan and options that match your style. Perhaps you would like a plan with ample natural light in the kitchen, or, one that features tray vaulted ceilings.

Our new homes also come with built-in wiring that helps to minimize WiFi dead spots in your home, making it easier to stream your favorite channels, surf the web or video chat with the grandkids.
