The Fairways at Lancaster: It’s all about lifestyle

The Fairways at Lancaster is not your average “senior community.”

The 55-plus community has been designed for a new generation of empty nesters who don’t want to have to deal with the upkeep of a big house, yet want a great living situation that is comfortable, yet allows them to pick up and go.

Just one year “new,” The Fairways at Lancaster is located at 5352 Genesee Street in Bowmansville, a hamlet of Lancaster just minutes from Clarence, Amherst and the Village of Williamsville.

Formerly the site of the Harris Hill Golf Center, The Fairways at Lancaster is classified as a 55+ community for active adults with “active” being the operative word.

Residents enjoy a lifestyle that includes not only a beautiful two-bedroom, two full bath patio home with a one- or two-car attached garage, but a community environment that rivals many that people are familiar with down in Florida.

In fact, many Fairways residents have winter homes down south and like the flexibility to lock their door and leave whenever they’re ready to flee Buffalo winters. All with knowing everything will be cared for when they are ready to return.

The Fairways offers the ability to rent, without feeling like a renter. Private entrances and patios, high end finishes, 9-foot ceilings and best of all, virtually no upkeep. Each villa features two bedrooms and two baths. Single-floor living includes large accessible doorways and walk-in showers.

The beautiful living space is just the right size and includes luxury hard surface flooring, carpeting in the bedrooms, granite countertops, a gas fireplace, full-sized washer and dryer (included), stainless steel appliances, valet trash service, covered private patios and much more.

Landscaping, snow removal and maintenance is handled by The Fairways team, all with no added HOA fees.

Need a lightbulb changed? Just call over to the clubhouse, which is just another of the perks of being a resident.
Residents enjoy complimentary use of the clubhouse for private parties, a gas firepit for an evening glass of wine and a fitness center.

Community amenities also include a nature path, bocce ball court, heated salt water swimming pool and putting green. The Fairways also has the luxury of a private executive golf course, with exclusive (and complimentary) use, for residents and their guests.

Not over 55 but wish you could live here? Well you possibly can!

A little-known fact is that most 55 and over “senior” communities have the ability to lease up to 20 percent of their units to those under the age of 55, but over the age of 18. Call for details. The Fairways at Lancaster is definitely worth a visit to see if it’s the right lifestyle for you.

The Clubhouse and model are open 7 days a week. Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m.-4 p.m., and Sunday 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Contact RaeAnn Plouffe, Property Manager for more information (716) 393-3571 or
