Raleigh, N.C. (PRWEB) August 7, 2007
Bedford at Falls River, an award-winning Wakefield Development Company master-planned community, has been named one of America's 100 Best Master-Planned Communities for the second time by the national publication Where to Retire. The fifth biennial honor roll is featured in the magazine's July/August issue.
Several hundred communities across the nation were considered and evaluated. Those chosen for the "100 Best" vary in cost, location and the range of lifestyle amenities. The final selection contains communities in 31 states, including places beyond the traditional retirement havens. More than half of the developments, including Bedford at Falls River, are not active-adult communities and are open to residents of all ages.
"It's an honor to be recognized by a publication of this caliber," said John Myers, president of Wakefield Development Company. "It reinforces that North Carolina, and in particular the Triangle, has become a popular option for homebuyers of all age groups."
The selection of Bedford at Falls River shows a continuing trend toward active lifestyles, with walking and biking trails, pocket parks and greenways providing year-round exercise opportunities. In addition, the Recreation Center provides an abundance of space for tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, an expansive clubhouse, two pools, Central Park, and a shady picnic pavilion that is fully loaded with state-of-the-art technology.
Bedford at Falls River revives the traditional neighborhood setting and atmosphere while combining modern conveniences of today's homes.
