Gatherings®, Beazer’s 55+ active-adult condo brand, has been awarded two Best of 55+ Housing Awards for stellar design and industry leadership. Gatherings earned a Silver Award for best attached home under 1,700 square feet and the coveted One to Watch award honoring the industry’s most impactful leader under the age of 40.
The Chestnut floorplan, featuring an open, spacious layout, is a favorite for residents of Orlando’s Gatherings of Lake Nona, a planned community focused on healthy living in a multi-generational setting.
“Residents love the Chestnut because it features the comforts they have grown accustomed to, like the private dining room,
but in a smaller footprint,” says Katrina Stroup, VP of business development for Gatherings. “It’s unique for a home this size.”
On a corner unit, the open space welcomes abundant natural light and opens to a private balcony. “The home design invites owners to enjoy fewer home-related worries and to focus on their want-to-dos rather than their have-to-dos,” Stroup says.
Fresh Design with Eclectic Flair
Kay Green Design collaborated with Beazer on the interior design for the Chestnut model.
“It’s important to remember that this generation still desires all the comforts and amenities as other homeowners,” Kay Green said. “A successful project combines a fresh perspective, along with emerging universal design trends, to create a thriving, vibrant 55+ active-adult environment.”
Inspired by active adults with busy lifestyles, Kay Green Design imagined a space that put residents’ passion for friends, family, and entertaining at the forefront.
“The style reflects the interests of residents with eclectic flair, from collected pieces acquired in their travels, to family heirlooms, and many new-found treasures,” Green told us.
Gatherings was also honored with the One to Watch award, identifying exemplary leaders under 40 who positively impact the home building space for those 55 and better.
“This honor demonstrates the innovation, performance, and community involvement that personify the Gatherings brand,” said Allan Merrill, president and CEO of Beazer Homes. “We’re immeasurably proud of the contributions of leaders on the Gatherings team to Beazer, their local communities, and the 55+ housing industry.”
