This 67-acre planned community offers those 55 and over a variety of housing options. You’ll find villas and condos to purchase on the senior living portion of the campus. Some villas even come with fenced-in yards, with most having at least a green space for you to enjoy. The condos are found in a four-story mid-rise that offers elevators to its residents. While the condos are slightly smaller than the villas, you’ll enjoy the convenience of the clubhouse attached for easy access.

You have your choice of one or two-story villas in one of two gated communities. You’ll enjoy both a front and back porch and attached garages if you go with a villa. Owning your home provides you with a sound investment and certain tax advantages, along with the ability to customize your living space any way you see fit. At Watermere, you’ll be surrounded by neighbors who are all at least 55 years of age. Children and grandchildren are welcome to visit or even stay a couple of weeks, but permanent residents must meet the minimum age requirement.

The best part of Watermere is the activities and amenities. You can work out in the fitness center and yoga room or meet up with a friend for a glass of wine at the Lounge. Residents can stop by the library at Watermere to borrow a book or play a round of poker in the game room.

You’ll even find a salon where you can get your hair cut and colored before dinner in La Mer, a fine dining restaurant just steps away from your front door. The third floor offers a media room so that you can gather to watch your favorite movies. Local attractions also include museums, parks, the Winstar Casino, and the Sky Creek Golf Ranch Golf Club.
