MOUNT VERNON — Several homesites in the final phase, including some next to wooded buffers, are still available at Twin Brooks, a community designed for active adults ages 55 and older.

Built by Landed Gentry Homes and Communities, Twin Brooks is a hilltop neighborhood with woodlands and stream buffers throughout. Homesites range in size from 7,500 to more than 12,000 square feet, uniquely spacious for an active-adult community.

Twin Brooks is a community of primarily single-level homes, although some offer bonus loft spaces or lower-level options. Yards are fully maintained in the front and back. Prices range from $369,900 to the mid-$500,000s.

The stand-alone home designs range in size from 1,709 to more than 2,900 square feet, with at least three bedrooms and two bathrooms. All homes have features that make living easier for older adults, including great-room layouts, wide hallways and doorways, and minimal steps.

Each home includes a finished and insulated two- or three-car garage with a pull-down ladder to access overhead storage space.

The homes feature slab granite kitchen countertops, hardwood flooring and stainless steel appliances with optional gas cooking. Yards are fully landscaped, irrigated and partially fenced.

This weekend, the builder is showcasing its Orcas home design on homesite 67. The three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home features an open layout with a master suite and den on the main level. While most homes at Twin Brooks are single level, the Orcas features a bonus loft with hobby space and guest suite on the upper level. The homesite borders a protected wooded greenbelt and has views of the area from most rooms.

In addition, the private Twin Brooks Community Lodge is open and available to tour this weekend.

The area also features a vibrant arts scene, with local exhibits, arts museums and performances staged at McIntyre Hall and other venues.
