Lexington KY is Great Retirement Home!
According to a recent New York Times article, there is a nationwide trend of people moving to retirement communities that are close to college campuses. Since the University of Kentucky campus is right here, you may wonder if you should retire to Lexington Ky. I am happy to report that we have all the benefits that are mentioned in the article:
University of Kentucky provides a wide range of free and continuing education opportunities for retirees. Senior citizens can audit regular college classes at no charge. In addition, the Osher Life Long Learning Institute at UK offers a wide variety of courses for people who are over 50. Their offerings include oil and water painting classes, Spanish, computer, history and more.
The University maintains a steady beat of entertainment in the form of sports, plays, orchestra, opera, public lectures, art exhibits, and special events. The Arboretum is a beautiful 100-acre park on campus, and downtown Lexington is only a mile away.
Innovative healthcare can be found at UK HealthCare Hospital, located on campus. The hospital incorporates the latest science with interior design and nature art that creates a welcoming and healing environment. The Markey Cancer Center, also on campus, was recently awarded the prestigious designation as a NCI Cancer Center - the only one in the state.
There are many homes and condos for sale within a mile or two of the University of Kentucky - many offering maintenance-free living. If you are planning to retire to Lexington Ky, give me a call. I will be happy to tell you more about homes for sale in the area.
Lexington Ky is always #1 in my book! Whether you want to buy a downtown condo, a custom walkout ranch on a golf course, or a horse farm in the country, I can help find the perfect home for you - as well as help you sell your home. In addition to Lexington Real Estate, I specialize in the nearby towns of Paris, Midway, Georgetown, and Versailles.
