“We were fortunate to have wandered into OceanView during what had started as only the first of several planned informational visits to various retirement communities. A number of things impressed us on our OceanView tour: clearly well designed and landscaped homes (many with solar panels), preservation of woods and a wetland for storm water management, a strong endorsement from a resident we ran into, and the friendliness and enthusiasm of the staff.
Years before we anticipated moving from our home of 46 years in nearby Scarborough, we made a spontaneous decision to put down a deposit on one of the new Schoolhouse Cottages, then existing only as an architect’s drawing. We enjoyed working with OceanView’s landscape architect to create a terraced garden on a south-facing slope, including fruit trees.
Prior to the move here, we appreciated the luncheons, Lobsterbakes and educational programs offering professional advice about staging and selling our home, downsizing and moving, as well as the chance to meet eventual new Schoolhouse neighbors.
We, and our children and grandchildren, are frequent users of the year-round pool, and Liz and I look forward to regular water volleyball practice! As a long distance cyclist, I’ve found the Falmouth roads to be safer and more varied than those around our Scarborough home, and I look forward to rides with other residents. OceanView’s Fitness Center allows us to workout in inclement weather, and this winter we even had the chance to skate with our grandchildren on the little pond below our home!
We appreciate the many OceanView organized occasions to meet others socially, and are pleased to have made friends easily, with folks whose life paths have been amazingly varied and fascinating. And we have welcomed the freedom from raking leaves, shoveling snow, scraping and painting our old farmhouse!”
