Windsor Run’s newest residence building with 101 apartments will be home to some 150 new neighbors.

This month, Beech Hollow, the newest independent living residence building at Windsor Run, will open its doors to more than 150 new neighbors eager to join the thriving Erickson Living community in Matthews, N.C.

“Our goal is to meet the tremendous demand for the Erickson Living lifestyle in Mecklenburg County,” says Ryan Barkley, director of sales at Windsor Run. “The opening of Beech Hollow brings us one step closer to our goal of bringing the gold standard in continuing care retirement living to as many people as possible.”

Living the dream

Each of the 101 new Beech Hollow apartment homes features amenities already popular at Windsor Run, including airy layouts and beautiful finishes; modernized kitchens with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances; full-size, side-by-side washers and dryers; walk-in closets; and custom flooring and light fixtures. 

Beech Hollow’s apartment homes have easy access to the Woodland Commons Clubhouse via a glass-enclosed walkway. Inside the clubhouse, community members will enjoy the conveniences of three restaurants, an on-site medical center, fitness center, all-season pool and hot tub, creative arts studio, library, salon and day spa, classrooms, and movie theater. 

Worry-free investing

Since the announcement of Beech Hollow to Windsor Run priority list members last summer, the response has been swift. First notice of new construction is continually cited as one of the top reasons for joining the list. 

“Word of mouth is a powerful force,” says Ryan. “Our community members love living here and they continue to spread the word among family and friends. Within weeks of announcing Beech Hollow to our priority list, 50% of the apartment homes were reserved.”

All it takes to join the priority list is a fully refundable $1,000 deposit and a $150-per-person nonrefundable application fee. When prospective residents submit their deposit, that date is noted as their priority list date. As apartment homes become available, the sales team gives first right of refusal to priority list members based on their joining date.

In addition to first notice on new construction, priority list members also receive invitations to special events and enjoy numerous opportunities to meet their future neighbors. They also enjoy exclusive access to Windsor Run Personal Moving Consultant Amanda Bates. She meets with priority list members, in their homes, to provide information on the wide variety of resources available through Erickson Realty and Moving Services, including real estate agents, downsizing experts, cleanout services, packers, and movers. 

“I want to make sure that everyone who wants to sell their house and move to Windsor Run can do so easily and with as little stress as possible,” says Bates. “It’s my number one priority.”

Settling in

Because the last year and a half has been so busy, Windsor Run will now take some time to slow down and settle into this most recent growth. 

“Over the last few weeks, I’ve met with people who are eager to move to our community but are waiting for the next, new addition,” says Barkley. “However, at this time, we want to take a ‘breather’ to welcome our newest community members and continue to sell our existing homes in a timely manner.” 

This hiatus on new construction will also provide Barkley and his team time to go back to the market to ensure that Windsor Run continues to build exactly what the market desires. 

“We plan to add to our community, but there is no new construction scheduled to commence this year,” he says. “But that should not deter anyone interested in moving to Windsor Run now. We still have a handful of highly sought-after apartment homes available now for a 2019 move.” 

Seizing the opportunity

Amidst all the recent growth, Windsor Run is committed to providing every opportunity for people to visit the community and learn, firsthand, what life is like on campus. For some people, the first step is a private, confidential, and completely pressure-free appointment with a member of the sales team. Others prefer to learn more over a relaxing meal, surrounded by people who are also interested in a future at Windsor Run.

On July 10 and July 24, Windsor Run will host its popular Lunch and Learn events. Members of the sales team will be on hand to provide a wealth of information and answer questions. Guests will be treated to a delicious meal featuring a fresh caprese salad; choice of either pork tenderloin topped with a fresh peach sauce or bourbon-glazed salmon; and mixed seasonal berries served in a meringue cup for dessert. 

Both Lunch and Learns are free and open to anyone wishing to learn more about a future at Windsor Run.

“It’s an exciting time,” says Barkley. “But no matter how quickly our community grows, my number one responsibility is helping to find the perfect home for each and every person. Everyone we meet with is someone’s mother, father, sister, brother, or friend. It’s our job to treat our future residents like they’re our own family and friends. We look forward to meeting many new friends this summer.”
