New on-site Design Center opens at Fox Hill Village

A living room with furniture

Many people think of retirement community residences as being rather plain and predictable. But at Fox Hill Village, each residence is a true reflection of its occupants. That’s because Fox Hill’s cooperative model makes residents shareholders — giving them the ability to design their homes to reflect their personal styles and aesthetic preferences. And Fox Hill takes it a step further with a beautiful new on-site Design Center that pulls together all the professionals and resources a resident will need to bring their vision to life.

The process starts with one of Fox Hill’s 16 beautiful and spacious floor plans that are creatively designed with generous living space and enviable views of the community’s gorgeous campus and woodlands. Ranging from an efficient 584 square feet to “double” apartments with more than 2,200 square feet, many of Fox Hill’s apartments already offer quality custom features added by previous residents. But for residents who have something different in mind, there’s the Design Center.

The Center’s professional design team works as a partner and can help with everything from modest modifications and upgrades to larger projects like floor plan changes. The team can also help residents determine how their furniture will fit into their new apartment home and where it will go — or even help them select new pieces. And best of all, residents can rely on the team to help with project planning, engage trusted contractors, coordinate their work, and manage the entire process for a seamless — and stress-free — remodel. Following are just some of the changes Fox Hill’s Design Center team can help with:

  • Interior design
  • Custom cabinetry
  • Fireplace surrounds
  • Built-in shelving
  • Custom millwork
  • Coffered ceilings
  • Furniture placement
  • Paint and wallpaper
  • Incorporating patterns and textures
  • Fixtures and hardware
  • Stylish lighting
  • Floor plan changes
  • Combined apartments
