A courtyard entry and mixed-material facade give the Westlake instant curb appeal. Inside, the open arrangement of the kitchen, great room and bayed dining room, as well as nearby screen and covered porches, creates the perfect place for casual entertaining. A home elevator makes it easy to move to the lower level, where a rec room and two additional bedrooms await guests or family.
Perfect for a view lot, the Mosscliff brings tons of livability in an efficient walkout basement home. An island kitchen serves a single dining area and great room, and accesses a massive utility room and pantry conveniently close to the garage entry. Two covered porches downstairs, and front and rear porches plus a screen porch upstairs bring the outside in.
Falls rank among the top worries that older adults face in daily life, and not without reason. Falls are a leading cause of injury and death among older adults, and adults who are injured in a fall may never regain the level of functioning they had before falling.
The best response to a fear of falling isn’t avoiding activities that pose a risk, however. Rather than limiting themselves, seniors should design home plans that minimize fall risk so they can enjoy maximum independence as they age.
