Many retirement communities, when catering to potential clients, display ads with happy couples sitting on a porch sipping coffee, or riding a boat with their hair blowing in the breeze. In reality, retirement looks like many different things. Some couples choose to retire with friends, others choose to join their family and help raise grandchildren. The Bulle Rock community in Havre de Grace, Maryland, recognizes the need for a flexible community that caters to diverse situations. Enter the “NextGen” home. Billed as a home within a home, this particular model, dubbed the Orchard, “provides a great solution for long-term guests, multi-generational families or anyone else who can utilize this innovative space designed for today’s lifestyles.” Models are equipped with up to four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms situated in just over 3,000 square feet depending on the model. Prices begin in the mid $300’s, but if you’re looking for a home made just for the two of you, Bulle Rock also various options to choose from.
What’s great about Bulle Rock homes is that they are “Everything’s Included Homes,” meaning houses can come with built in security locks and cameras, custom cabinets, hardwood floors, granite countertops, GE Energy Star stainless steel appliances, a soaking tub, and dual sinks just to name a few things! Working with builders like Ryan, Lennar and Williamsburg Homes allow residents to customize their home and truly turn it into a one of a kind build and your forever home. The only dilemma you may run into is that you’ll find yourself rarely there!
At Bulle Rock, their motto pretty much sums it up: “Life imitates vacation.” With golfing, boating, and fine dining only a few minutes from your front door, you’ll never be at a loss for things to do. The golf course, designed by Pete Dye, is considered the best public golf course in all of Maryland and “Zagat readers ranked Bulle Rock among the nation’s Top 50 golf course while Golf Digest has honored Bulle Rock as one of only 12 ‘Five-Star Facilities.’” If golfing isn’t your activity of choice, the Chesapeake is just a few minutes away, so you can be on the water in no time. Additionally, Baltimore, Washington D.C., Wilmington, Annapolis, and Philadelphia are only a short drive away.
And then there’s the Resident’s Club, which is an attraction in and of itself. This sprawling 37,000 square foot two-story club house is the place to be in Bulle Rock. Relax with a glass of wine in the rotunda that allows you to look out over the water of the Chesapeake Bay. Practice your shot on the putting green, or play tennis or bocce on the lawn. The Resident’s Club also boasts a billiards room, a lounge with a big screen TV, café, indoor and outdoor pool with spa, state of the art fitness center, and wellness sauna.
