An Upscale Community for Active Adults

As the Baby Boomer population ages, more and more communities like the Sun Citys gated waterfront Riverbend development are becoming an attractive option for retirement and second home ownership. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, over 32 million Baby Boomers are currently over 50. In the coming years, an additional 45 million are expected to enter their active 50 years and based on a National Association of Realtors® study, "nearly half would consider living in an age-restricted community."

At Riverbend, buyers are free to purchase at any age, but residency is limited to those aged 50 or older for one spouse. A quick glance through the amenities and programs of the neighborhood may not easily depict a community of active adults. Bordered by the Okatie River, residents have access to fishing and boating from a 476-foot pier. Many homeowners participate in crabbing, shrimping, canoeing and kayaking and are often joined by dolphins that play close to the shore.
Marketing Agent and REALTOR/Partner Toni LaRose-Gerken with Real Living in the Lowcountry finds the best reason to buy in Riverbend is its people as well as the beauty and serenity of the community.

"People here are wonderful," she says. "They are extremely friendly and caring."

Riverbend residents can access all of Sun City's amenities. Sun City is a brief golf cart ride over the bridge and boasts two championship golf courses, two fitness centers, four pools (indoor and outdoor), bocce courts, tennis courts, leisure trails and more.

After a day of golf or a comfortable walk with friends through Riverbend's tree-lined streets, The Lodge, the cornerstone of the community offers a comfortable social retreat. A southern veranda is perfectly located with a view of the Okatie River where residents can enjoy a quiet evening to reflect and view the spectacular sunset.
