Small town charm. Really big lifestyle.
There’s a new kind of neighborhood taking shape in Opelika. A thoughtfully planned community for active adults who want a near-perfect location, easy living and extraordinary amenities. The Springs of Mill Lakes was created for those who wish to right size, move closer to family, or start fresh near a leading university with top health care. The community will offer 134 single-family custom homes. The terraced lots were designed to take advantage of the site’s natural beauty and views. The Phoenix at Mill Lakes, our onsite senior living community, offers Opelika’s only independent living and assisted living destination, with wellness and support services in a beautiful residential setting.
Nature in the neighborhood
While the grounds will be professionally landscaped, a significant portion of land will be left untouched for residents to explore on foot or by bike. Fish in a bass-stocked lake, kayak or paddleboat in our recreational lake or just meander through the wildlife sanctuary. We’re enhancing the area’s natural beauty and serenity with a wood bridge, dock and nature trails.
Though incredibly serene, this setting is in no way remote. Whether you’re a Tiger fan, arts lover or just a hungry foodie, you’ll find your passion in Auburn/Opelika. The area was named by Forbes Magazine one of the 25 Best Places to Retire in America. Breathe in the college-town energy of Auburn, bustling with sports, culture and street life. Opelika is all small-town charm, where historic buildings now house upscale boutiques and restaurants.
The East Alabama Medical Center, located less than a mile from us and affiliated with Auburn University, is a convenient resource for exceptional medical care. It was also named on the “100 Great Community Hospitals” list.
