Peek inside a clubhouse at any Erickson Living community, and you’ll see a hub of activity amidst numerous amenities and friendly neighbors. The same will be true at the Woodland Commons Clubhouse at Windsor Run, an Erickson Living community in Matthews, N.C., scheduled to open next year.

“We are excited about all the amenities and services Woodland Commons will provide,” says Windsor Run Director of Sales Tom Senger. “We have listened carefully to the current Erickson Living residents as well as people within the local community looking for a continuing care retirement community to ensure that our clubhouse will meet desired needs and expectations.”

The world down the hall

One of the many benefits of moving to an Erickson Living community is direct access to the wide range of options to stay healthy and active, including an on-site medical center, a professionally staffed fitness center, and an assortment of dining options.

The Woodland Commons Clubhouse will feature an on-site medical center staffed with full-time board-certified physicians, a state-of-the-art fitness center, an all-season junior Olympic-size pool, three dining options, movie theater, marketplace, salon and spa, an art studio, and classrooms. The clubhouse will be connected, through climate-controlled walkways, to the community’s first residence building, Dogwood Place. 

“The services provided at an Erickson Living community just never stop,” says Bill Vitale, a community member of Ashby Ponds, an Erickson Living community in Ashburn, Va. “I believe that my wife Sue and I are going to live longer because we live at Ashby Ponds. We feel really good. I attribute it all to easy living with the Erickson lifestyle.”

Carl Nemecek, a community member at Greenspring, an Erickson Living community in Springfield, Va., agrees. 

“It sure simplifies one’s life to find so many needed services and amenities readily available,” he says. “It is wonderful that we can see a doctor and medical specialists, go to the barber, buy some basic grocery items, enjoy exercise and pool time, grow vegetables in a garden, choose from a large menu of dinner options, and participate in an extremely wide variety of activities without leaving home.” 

Dining on your terms

Providing healthy and delicious food options is a cornerstone of Erickson Living dining. The Woodland Commons Clubhouse will feature three dining venues, including a sit-down restaurant, a café, and a casual pub.

As part of Windsor Run’s monthly service package, community members can select from two meal plan options. It’s a philosophy Erickson Living calls “flexible dining.”

“Flexible dining is just that, it’s flexible,” says Senger. “It is important that Windsor Run community members are able to make decisions about when and where they dine without worrying about losing meals and losing money.”

“I enjoy the food that is served on campus,” says Sharon Harvey, a community member at Ashby Ponds. “But on the occasion that I choose to dine out, I am able to use my meal at breakfast or lunch or save it for a later date to share with guests. The flexible dining plan allows me to make choices based on my needs.” 

Something new

For the first time in Erickson Living history, a community clubhouse will feature an entire floor of sought-after apartment homes. 

The Woodland Commons Clubhouse will feature a mix of one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, and two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment homes. Each will come equipped with stainless steel, Energy Star kitchen appliances; granite countertops; tiled bath/showers with adjustable showerheads; and modern lighting and flooring options. 

Community members will also be able to select from a huge menu of options to help make their new Windsor Run home truly a reflection of themselves. Custom options include crown molding, built-in bookcases, and upgraded lighting, fixtures, and cabinets.

Inside and out

In addition to the plentiful amenities located inside, the Woodland Commons Clubhouse will offer enviable outside features, including a back patio with a stone fire pit, putting green, dog park, and corn hole lawn.

Community members will enjoy access to this beautiful back patio from either the first floor or terrace level of the clubhouse.

“It will be a great place to sit with friends while enjoying the fresh air and Carolina blue skies,” says Senger. “We anticipate that both the putting green and corn hole lawn will be top destinations for a little friendly competition among neighbors.”

Views from the back patio will include the famous “Kilroy” tree, an original part of the Fincher family farm (where Windsor Run now sits), and named after the family’s bull Kilroy, who enjoyed grazing by the tree.

Going, going…

Since first announcing Windsor Run, the community’s sales center has been busy meeting with future residents, sharing information on apartment home options, and providing details on the priority, or waiting, list.   

Those interested in learning more about Windsor Run are encouraged to visit the recently opened sales center at 2010 McKee Road, Matthews, N.C. The comfortable, state-of-the-art center includes iPads for viewing floor plans, a design studio, renderings of the future community, and a Windsor Run virtual tour.
