3 8 F I T 2 0 1 7 - 2 0 1 8 The Village Active Lifestyle Community at Masonic Homes of Kentucky For Nancy Wentzel, the windows helped sell the apartment. The large living room and those tall windows in the renovated historic building at The Village Active Lifestyle Community would make the perfect art studio area. Today, as Nancy works in oil paints, her border collie, Nettie, keeps an eye on activities in the park-like setting outside. "I just love my apartment," Nancy said of her home since July. "I feel like I'm in a New York City apartment." The Village is part of Masonic Homes of Kentucky's family of services, so Nettie is keeping watch over the verdant Olmsted-designed campus. Ten historic buildings, formerly part of the Widows and Orphan's Home, make up The Village. Along with the 1,000-square-foot apartment, Nancy is investing in The Village Life Plan. Masonic Homes offers a refundable entrance fee option to provide residents access to all campus amenities and activities, updated apartment finishes and a healthcare discount with priority admission for higher levels of care at Masonic Homes. The Village also offers affordable housing and market-rate options. Affordable housing is available for those who meet defined age and income requirements. For those whose income exceeds the requirements, upscale units are available for rental at market rates. Nancy's plan includes a washer and dryer and a meal allowance that can be used for meals at The Bistro and Miralea. But as she enjoys cooking, she has the option of using her own kitchen. Floor plans for The Village range from one-bedroom apartments like Nancy's to two-bedrooms to spacious lofts with 19-foot ceilings. Nancy appreciates The Village's architectural personality, adding, "Everything here doesn't look the same." "There's such a variety of interests here, too," Nancy said. "There are children on campus, and so much activity with my neighbors, and events at the Olmsted." "I didn't want something cookie cutter," she added. "This suits me." Masonic Homes of Kentucky has three active lifestyle communities on its Louisville Campus: The Village, and Miralea and The Meadow (opening in 2018).
