WHAT IS GARDEN HOME AND VILLA LIVING?

Low-maintenance living is the hallmark of these perfectly sized homes. Garden homes at Gardens at Verde Vista are free-standing structures, separated by a spacious private courtyard. These garden homes are usually one story to make for easier maintenance and care of your home, however, Gardens at Verde Vista offers the option to add 2nd floor with game/media rooms and an additional bedroom.

The villa homes at Gardens at Verde Vista are free-standing structures much like a single-family home, separated by a spacious private courtyard.

What are the benefits of lock and leave living?

First, let’s answer the question, “What is lock and leave living?” It’s a fairly new concept that has gained popularity as more baby boomers reach 60, and want the comfort and amenities they’re accustomed to without time-consuming upkeep. Lock and leave communities are typically made up of garden homes and villa homes, or other types of single-family residences, where homeowners pay a monthly HOA fee that covers all exterior maintenance of their homes.

Without a doubt, two of the biggest benefits of lock and leave living are freedom and convenience. Since all exterior maintenance is taken care of by the HOA, you have the freedom to truly “Live without Limits!” Enjoy the convenience of not having to look for someone to take care of your lawn and landscaping. Your new lifestyle is as easy as lock, leave, and live!

Another benefit of lock and leave living is more free time. Instead of spending Saturday mornings working on your lawn, you can do the things you really love – like exploring the many Hill Country things to do!
