For seniors in small towns, remaining in their own community as they get older can prove challenging, particularly if housing options are severely limited by their income. Willow Pond tackles that problem for Mocksville by offering 50 senior apartments that deliver beautiful homes at an affordable price.
Developed by The Affordable Housing Group of North Carolina and the Wesley Community Development Corporation, Willow Pond offers one- and two-bedroom apartment homes in a charming three-story building. Apartments range from 675 to 910 square feet with rents from $355 to $570. Six apartments are fully accessible for persons with disabilities, including three with roll-in showers. An additional 12 apartments have step-in showers for seniors who have difficulty with tubs.
Willow Pond incorporates several features designed to save water and be energy-efficient, such as appliances and windows. Each apartment has an abundance of natural light. The apartments also use an attractive vinyl tile that gives the impression of hardwoods.
Amenities include a computer room, fitness equipment, media room, and community room with a kitchen, which serves as a gathering place for events and parties. There are also several outdoor seating areas and a walking trail.
Perhaps the best benefit for residents, however, is being able to reside in a tranquil environment while remaining close to services and shopping. Willow Pond sits on a small hill above a one-acre pond.
