Del Webb Carolina Orchards, named Best Active Adult Community by the Homebuilders Association of Greater Charlotte, is celebrating the occasion with a June 15 red carpet event.

The Fort Mill, S.C. 55+ community also took home honors for having the Best Community Amenity and Best Community Entrance at the association’s recent MAME Awards.

Carolina Orchards will host a celebration at the community on Saturday, June 15 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Open to both residents and prospective buyers, the event will include light refreshments and provide an opportunity to learn more about the 55+ community.

Guests can tour the model park, featuring nine designer model homes, as well as the award-winning amenity center, The Grove, which serves as the hub for residents to access and share all the activities that are the hallmark of life at Del Webb. Guests can also enter to win one of two overnight stays in an Explore Del Webb home at Carolina Orchards.

“We are delighted that Del Webb Carolina Orchards has received this hometown recognition from the Charlotte homebuilders,” said Steve Francis, Charlotte division president for PulteGroup. “Since opening in 2016, Del Webb Carolina Orchards has attracted home buyers from both the surrounding area and across the country, as baby boomers start the next exciting chapter of their lives in an active adult community that is designed specifically for them.”

Nestled on 325 acres about 10 miles from Charlotte, Carolina Orchards is the second Del Webb community to be built in the Charlotte area, joining Del Webb Carolina Lakes, which opened in 2006. At completion, Carolina Orchards will include 729 single-family, one-story homes, offering 9 home designs ranging from 1,263-2,565+ square-feet. Prices start from the $270s.

“This is a community that offers the perfect combination of an active lifestyle and quality-crafted home designs in a beautiful setting,” added Francis. “As we continue to welcome new neighbors to Carolina Orchards, our upcoming celebration will serve as a wonderful introduction for anyone who wants to get a first-hand look at what life can be like in a Del Webb active adult community.”
