The minute Sue Baker heard that Erickson Senior Living would be opening a new community in Fairfax, Va., her mind was made up - she would be among the first residents to call Woodleigh Chase home.
"I currently live just a few miles from Woodleigh Chase," says Sue. "As soon as I found out they were building here in my neighborhood, I knew I would be moving, so I joined the priority list."
Priority list membership grants you the opportunity to reserve the apartment home of your choice before the general public and take advantage of exclusive events and perks along the way.
"When they started construction on Woodleigh Chase, I felt well on my way to embarking on the next chapter of life," she says.
Woodleigh Chase will be the third Erickson Senior Living community in northern Virginia, joining Greenspring in Springfield and Ashby Ponds in Ashburn.
Conveniently located in Fairfax at the intersection of Braddock and Burke Station Road, just a few miles away from George Mason University, the community will include 262 independent living apartment homes and a 43,000-square-foot clubhouse with amenity space and apartment homes.
"I was the 37th person to reserve an apartment home," says Sue. "I chose the Vienna, a two-bedroom, two-bath floor plan with a den and a balcony. I am a quilter, so the number one thing on my wish list was making sure I would have enough space to get my quilting studio set up."
Sue's spacious apartment home, located on the fifth floor, will overlook the trees on campus.
Something for everyone
With floor plans ranging from 812 square feet to more than 1,800 square feet, finding space in your apartment home for a studio or home office is easy at Woodleigh Chase.
"Our extensive selection of apartment homes is very exciting, both in the variety of sizes and the configurations," says David Taylor, sales director at Woodleigh Chase. "Plus, features like nine-foot ceilings, quartz countertops and soft-close cabinetry in the kitchens, and screened outdoor space are standard, as well as under-building parking."
Woodleigh Chase's clubhouse will feature amenities, activities, and services to enhance the lives of residents and create a vibrant community.
"We really want folks to enjoy a rewarding lifestyle," says Taylor. "Because of the amenities and services available right where they live, it'll be easy for residents to be active."
He continues, "When the community opens later this year, they will instantly be able to enjoy the fitness center, aquatics center, restaurants, a theater, arts studio, salon and barbershop, as well as outdoor amenities like a bocce court and dog park."
Sue notes that she's particularly looking forward to taking exercise classes and joining a quilting group at Woodleigh Chase.
And she'll be able to do it in the company of her friends, some of whom are moving in during the spring of 2024 - and maybe even a few more who are on the priority list.
In with the new
Currently, Sue is focused on clearing out unwanted items to make room for the new.
"Every day, I make it a point to clean out either a drawer or a cabinet, so that when it's time to move, I'll be ready to go," she says.
