Verano: 55+ Living Never Looked So Good

Posted on 14 Aug, 2020

There’s a reason why Verano, Aliento’s 55+ active adult community, was named 2018’s Best Age Qualified Senior Living Community. In fact, there are so many reasons. Take a closer look at this next-level 55+ community in the hills of Santa Clarita and hear from some of our residents about why they love calling this place home.

Part of what makes Verano so special are its residents who have formed a true community of friends. With just 95 homes and gated privacy, Verano provides the opportunity for a more close-knit, neighborly feel. Verano resident Dave says, “We have so many close friends that we’ve made at this community. We look after each other, we take care of each other … we do things together that are fun, but there’s that feeling that … if you need help in any way, you don’t hesitate to ask, and someone will be there.”

Another great thing about Verano? Simple yet sophisticated home designs offer just enough space for this next stage of life. Verano residents Aimee and Jamie were done raising kids and realized they didn’t need such a large home. “We just needed enough to be comfortable for the two of us. We wanted something that had a view [and] opportunities for us to be outdoors,” Aimee says. Like Dave, Aimee and Jamie were also pleased to find new friends when they moved to Verano. “We were definitely looking for a community where we could meet new people, make new friendships, and we really found that here at Verano,” Amy says.

Verano’s six single-level plans range from approximately 1,617 to 1,686 square feet with up to 3 bedrooms and indoor/outdoor living areas. Enjoy the simplicity and easier maintenance of a single-story home, or you can opt to add a second story – giving you even more space with extra bedrooms, lofts or game rooms for when the grandkids or your friends visit. Even with a second floor, having a primary suite on the first floor means everything you need for everyday living is right there on the first floor.

The community also recently introduced a brand-new floor plan collection, the Discovery Collection. The Emerald and The Jade feature easy, open-design floor plans with 2 bedrooms and outdoor living space options, starting from the mid $500Ks. With the Discovery Collection, resort-style living is within reach.

And, of course, every community needs somewhere to relax and have fun. Verano residents have access to their own adults-only amenity center, The Club at Verano, where neighbors can mix things up and discover new interests together. Plus, being part of the larger Aliento community means Verano residents also have access to all of Aliento’s amenities, from the hiking trails and community parks to the resort-style amenity center, The Terrace.
