Windsong Properties Featured in AARP The Magazine
Windsong Properties, Atlanta’s leading Active Adult courtyard homebuilder is featured in April’s AARP The Magazine for being awarded a Livable Communities “special recognition” honor for its Somerset community in Woodstock.
Windsong Properties was initially recognized by AARP and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) on January 19, 2010 at the International Builders Show in Las Vegas. All winners from the event are recognized in this month’s edition of the magazine.
“We are very proud of to be recognized by AARP The Magazine,” said Steve Romeyn, managing partner at Windsong Properties. “To be honored in the world’s largest circulation magazine is quite an accomplishment.”
AARP and the NAHB created the Livable Communities awards program in 2007 for builders, remodelers, architects and developers in order to recognize forward-looking companies that have constructed creative and unique homes and communities with accessible features that improve the daily comfort, ease of use and safety for all their residents, no matter age or physical abilities.
A panel of expert judges appointed by NAHB and AARP reviewed applications and selected the finalists. Judging criteria varied from category to category, but points were awarded based on: 1) Universal Design Features 2) Ease of Maintenance and Energy Efficiency 3) Exterior Design and Landscaping/
Every home that Windsong Properties builds meets EasyLiving Homes® standards, which includes no-step access, wide doorways, lever handles and other amenities that facilitate changing life situations. In addition, the homes at Somerset are EarthCraft and ENERGY STAR certified assuring they have a lower cost to operate, are healthier and more comfortable and reduce their environment.
