It’s hard to believe that the lively city of Augusta is just outside the quiet expanse of Augusta Village land-leased community. Set on 36-acres tucked away in the serenity of evergreens, Augusta Village is one of two land leased communities for residents 55 and older within the city limits of Augusta, Maine. Offering 73 well-kept sites, residents of Augusta Village enjoy city services such as great public transportation and nearby medical facilities as well as an on-site management team who responds quickly to residents’ needs.
One of the top five fastest growing states in the nation, Maine’s burgeoning capital of Augusta (population 18,500) serves 70,000 people statewide and boasts first rate schools, safe neighborhoods and progressive medical facilities. The median age of Augusta is 40.3 years, and the city is replete with services to accommodate the older, well-established community. Augusta Village is located within miles of a new, under-construction 600,000 square-foot, $380 million regional hospital, the recently-completed, state-of-the-art 59,000 square-foot Harold Alfond Center for Cancer Care and the US Veterans Hospital.
There’s no shortage of culture in Augusta, either! The shopping mecca of Augusta Marketplace (servicing a population of 250,000) is minutes away, as is the Turnpike Mall. It’s a pleasant drive on recently renovated roadways to Maine’s two largest seaside towns – Portland one hour to the south and Bangor one hour to the north – and only 3 1/2 hours to Boston. Augusta is within a 20-minute drive to five major colleges and universities. Unique festivals, award-winning restaurants and nationally-renowned antique shopping offer interesting cultural attractions.
The gateway to outdoor adventure, Augusta is within striking distance of the ocean, mountains, forests and thousands of lakes, and offers outdoor activities like kayaking, golf, fishing, snowmobiling, cross country skiing and hiking to keep residents and their visitors entertained year-round. Augusta sits on the banks of the rejuvenated Kennebec River, a modern-day ecological success story, with wildlife population numbers rivaling one hundred years ago.
