Downsizing couple likes 50-plus lifestyle
Amenities in Calvanna Village-Okotoks are ‘full-meal deal’ for buyers
For Joan and George Smith, it was a natural transition. The active seniors had lived in their own home in High River for more than a decade — but when George turned 72 and Joan 66, it was time to downsize and move into a maintenancefree place.
“Joanie’s sister was in a Calvanna Village development in Ar- bor Lake in Calgary’s northwest,” says George.
“It was very nice and we said: ‘We could live like this,’ so we started looking. But we found that at that time, High River didn’t have a condo building for seniors.
“Then we found that Calvanna was building in Okotoks, and we were sold.”
The location was a big draw, says Joan.
Joan Smith, 66, and husband George, 72, have downsized from a home in High River to their new digs in the plus-50 project of Calvanna Village-Okotoks.
