About Verandahs

The gated, secluded Verandahs by Falls Lake

at the peninsula tip in a bespoke estate neighborhood

A private, level and direct outside entrance to your own large sanctuary – never be cut off from your loved ones! Decorate with your own furnishings, amidst well-appointed splendor- thrive separately but under the same lake-house roof with just 7 other residents. Just step outside your inner door and you’re in your private Sun Parlor in the vast Solarium Gallery inner courtyard, with company at hand! It’s so easy to get around and visit friends at Verandahs, everything is on one level!

Yes, Verandahs could be where one resides upon downsizing, when not on travel or at the shore… embrace the lake, the distant sound of boats, the verdant woods, the starlight with no streetlight, the calming absence of traffic noise, the soothing nature did you see those deer?

A natural rising to another glorious day at


See the bee at your window-box flowers? The shining lake beyond the trees?

Step onto your own verandah– breathe in that refreshing air!

Then smile at the family photos on your living room mantel …..someone is coming soon for an overnight visit!

Slip into your own private Sun Parlor in the openness of the vast Solarium Gallery, where there’s so much gentle sunlight …..down the hall at Verandahs Kitchen, there’s no frenetic activity, all is serene, your neighbors at the Gathering Table seem relaxed and happy! Putter about in the well-equipped Kitchen- pancakes, anyone? ….. a hot cup of choice from the Keurig enjoyed while watching the news….. Or, delight in the haven of your own Sun Parlor and just read the paper under abundant natural skylight. Bliss!

Then, an excursion! Take your little pet for a walk around the goldfish pool…..at your assigned private parking, jump in the car, zip over to the nearby mall right past the hospital….. Back at your Verandahs home, marvel at the growing green beauty of the plants in your garden patch– relax on the portico, ponder the sparkling lake, the reflecting pool, feel the seclusion of your nature retreat, and be on the lookout for deer!

Our Butler, a rarity these days, is available by arrangement at a reasonable charge

How long since you felt comfortable going out at night?

Wouldn’t you enjoy, say, forming a foursome and being chauffeured by the Butler to an tasteful restaurant, then the Symphony?

The hardworking Butler comes to you by appointment at an attractive charge to chauffeur and assist you to the theatre– the Symphony– museums– restaurants– shopping– church– appointments– even your nearby family’s house!

How long since you entertained?

Have some friends over for dinner!

Your cherished furnishings set the stage for entertaining, the polished Butler or the smiling Housekeeper, engaged for the occasion, serves cool beverages on your verandah, then stands by at en suite dining, having brought up an excellent bottle from your spot in the Wine Cellar! True velvet.

A Magnet for visitors

There’s lots to do!

Kith and kin know Verandahs as a fun place to visit- grab the fishing poles! The lake’s just past the deer- hike the trails, splash along the rock-bed creek, cross the footbridge, stage a “boat race” with twigs dropped onto the moving waters, come back to checkers and shuffleboard……
