Independent Living Floor Plans at The Preserve at Palm-Aire

The right independent living community is more than just its floor plans. Exceptional communities boast a robust range of activities, not to mention plenty of delicious food. Nevertheless, your day begins in your home, and so you deserve a home that meets your needs. At Arbor, we leave nothing to chance. We design each home with efficiency and comfort in mind. Check out our stunning options:


This 380-square-foot studio apartment feels cozy, but never cramped. You'll enjoy an entertainment area, a kitchenette, and a beautiful bathroom with a walk-in shower. Make the most of your living space with a breezy patio where you can enjoy a glass of wine and some conversation with your new neighbors.

Boasting 775 square feet, the Ocean Breeze is a spacious one-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment. Enjoy a large deck and sitting area, as well as a cozy kitchenette, countertop eating space, and the perfect living room for a movie night.

For the senior who craves true luxury, the Coastal villa offers 1,200 square feet, as well as a garage. Enjoy one baths, a full kitchen, a large patio, walk-in closets, and a spacious walk-in shower. Invite friends to sit in your living room and enjoy your dining space, or sit on the patio and watch the sunset.

Choosing the Right Floor Plan for Your Needs

Like most investments, choosing the right independent living floor plan means striking the ideal balance between price and comfort. The Arbor Company has spent 30 years building exceptional senior living communities that meet the needs and exceed the desires of every senior we support. So we know how to build efficient, stunning homes for every budget. No matter which option you choose, we think you’ll love your new Arbor home — and the life of adventure, community, and joy that comes with it.

As you weigh your options, consider these questions:

  • How much am I willing to downsize? Which possessions are most important to me?
  • Would I rather have a large home, or more money to spend on other pursuits, such as travel and classes?
  • Do I want to entertain in my home?
  • What can I do to make the most of my space? Which features — such as wall shelving or large closets — would help the most?
  • Do I need specific amenities, such as a large window for plants?
  • Would smaller furniture give me more room to play with my available space?
  • Would fewer possessions make it easier to keep my home clean?
  • Would I get more joy out of giving loved ones the things I intend to pass on? This strategy allows you to downsize and watch your loved ones enjoy an inherited gift.

The luxury homes at The Preserve at Palm-Aire are surprisingly affordable, especially if you’re transitioning out of owning your own home.
