When Debby Miller retired from her position as an accountant for Auburn University, she faced some choices about the future. One thing she wouldn’t have to decide was her zip code. “I didn’t want to leave Opelika, where I’d lived for 40 years. But I was in a large home with a pool and I needed to downsize!”
Everything started to fall in place once Debby discovered low-maintenance living at The Springs of Mill Lakes. “I hadn’t really considered a 55-plus community but I loved the Springs and the beautiful homes.” Debby chose the roomy (2,200 square foot) Harris Doyle Sheffield home with its single-level floor plan and charming screened porch.
Now that she’s no longer maintaining a large home, there’s lots of time for Bunco games and yoga with neighbors who have become close friends.
And whenever I feel like closing the door and heading out of town to visit my children for a day or two, I don’t have to worry about coming home to a ‘green’ pool,” Debby adds.
