Our holistic vision of lifelong wellness and preserving independence is evident everywhere on our campus. And nowhere is it more apparent than in the independent living apartments, villas and cottages designed to create a sense of community and unlimited possibilities.

Cottage Community
The Cottage Community is designed for older adults who value an active, independent lifestyle. Life in the Cottages offers a combination of private home living and close proximity to NewBridge's rich selection of programs, amenities, and activities.

Cottage residents can enjoy their homes without having to worry about mowing, raking, or shoveling, freeing them to focus on enjoying the activities they love or exploring new ones.

Three single home models are available, each offering different finishes and floor plan choices. Homes range from 1,475 to 2,700 square feet. Some include a lower level, a loft or both, increasing the living space up to 3,200 square feet. Homes also feature a private one- or two-car garage.

The Villas at NewBridge 
Situated on a quiet, private setting, the Villas at NewBridge are conveniently accessible to the Community Center by an underground walkway or through the courtyard garden. The spacious interiors offer high ceilings, exceptional amenities, large windows and underground parking. The two-bedroom villas, which are more intimate versions of our apartments, range in size from 1,589 to 1,800 square feet.

Each villa is a corner residence to allow for plenty of light and is served by an elevator located in a lobby in the center of the building. The floor plan below is just a sample of the many available:
