Fostering dignity, independence, and beautiful living spaces for people 

who want to age at home.

Deciding where to live as you age has never been easy, but today’s high cost of living and housing shortage have certainly made things more complicated. Whether you are considering options for yourself or wondering how to best support loved ones as they age or encounter limited mobility, Villa is excited to introduce you to a new line of ADUs that can help. 

The Villa Comfort Series, has officially launched! This series will support the unique needs of seniors and individuals with decreased mobility while offering beautiful, spacious, single-story spaces. 

New solutions for aging in place during a housing shortage

An AARP survey found that 77 percent of adults wish to age in their homes. However, safety concerns, necessary home modifications, and increasing living costs make this option challenging for many seniors. Out of those adults surveyed, 60 percent expressed an openness to move to an ADU as a way to maintain independence while saving on housing costs.

 

Also, families have an innovative new option for downsizing as they age—or anytime. California Assembly Bill 1033 allows property owners to sell their home independently of their ADU. This law will make it easier for people to create their dream retirement home within the bounds of their existing property, and stay within their community after selling their primary residence.

About the Comfort Series

“Villa’s new line of ADUs have been meticulously designed with a focus on universal design principles, ensuring that living space in these ADUs is adaptable to meet the changing needs of residents. This line will promote comfort and dignity for all residents, empowering them to stay close to family or other caregivers while maintaining independence,” says Villa CEO Sean Roberts.
