Grandparents adore being near their grandchildren. Parents love the free babysitting and the opportunity for their children to develop close relationships with their grandparents. And yet everyone appreciates a little breathing room and some privacy.

It can be tough for families to strike that balance while still living nearby one another. A multigenerational community offers housing options for older adults mixed with growing families. A great local example is Cresswind at The Ponds, a 55+ community for those who want to remain active, be near family and yet maintain their own social lives and private living space.

Conveniently located in historic Summerville, Cresswind provides two- and three-bedroom homes (perfect for sleepovers with the grandkids) in a community filled with private amenities and activities. The Clubhouse at Cresswind is staffed with an activities director who organizes special interest clubs, volunteer opportunities and classes ranging from nutrition to crafts. The Clubhouse also has a full fitness center and a yoga/aerobics studio.

The community has been designed with active adults in mind, making it perfect for those who want to maintain vibrant social lives, keep up their fitness activities and spend time outdoors enjoying the beautiful Lowcountry scenery.

The Ponds also has single-family homes ideal for busy families. And with Cresswind at The Ponds located in the same community, families can live in close proximity while maintaining their individual lives. All residents in The Ponds have access to incredible amenities, including walking trails, an on-site YMCA, recreational fields, sidewalks connecting all areas of the community, parks, ponds for fishing and canoeing, amphitheatre and an amenities center.

The Ponds is well suited for all ages and seasons of life. Families will appreciate the community feel, access to top-notch local schools in Dorchester School District Two and shopping. Plus they can enjoy peace of mind knowing their parents are living in the same community where they have their own activities yet are engaged with their grandchildren on a regular basis.
The Ponds is about creating a sense of community and how better to do that than by fostering family connections through multigenerational housing options.
