Inviting 55+ Manufactured Home Community of Sundance Meadows is Outside of Spokane, Washington and Boasts Attractive Residences in a Pretty Setting
Sundance Meadows is a gated 55+ manufactured home community on the northwestern outskirts of Spokane, Washington. At build out, the development should have nearly 200 homes, although fewer less than half that are here so far. This is a rural location, and properties back to hills that are dotted with pine trees.
Residences are built offsite to state and federal standards and are then permanently placed onto vapor protected concrete foundations. As in many newer manufactured home communities, the homes here do not look much different from site built dwellings. They have an attached, two car garage, a brick and vinyl exterior, a recessed entry way, a small front porch, plenty of windows and a pitched roof. Lawns are nicely landscaped, sidewalks parallel streets. Mountain views are standard.
Current prices begin in the low-$200,000s (homes in the high-$100,000s occasionally come up for sale). Lot fees are not publicly disclosed but are rumored to be in the $450 to $550 per month range. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change.
The on-site manager ensures that Sundance Meadows is well-run and well-maintained. Amenities include a very nice clubhouse with a library, a swimming pool, an exercise center, a fireplace and a gourmet kitchen. RV and boat storage are also available. Small pets are welcome. The 18-hole Sundance Golf Course is just down the street.
Ten thousand acre Riverside State Park, Washington's largest state park, is 10 miles to the north. The Little Spokane River, the Spokane River and Lake Spokane are within its boundaries, making it a great place for fishing, rafting and boating. Park visitors also enjoy bicycling trails, birdwatching areas, horseback riding paths and camping areas.
As Washington's second largest city, Spokane is known as the "Lilac City," named after its flourishing fragrant flowers. The city has five hospitals. At least two, Providence Holy Family Hospital and Valley Hospital, are accredited by the Joint Commission.
Spokane is in the eastern region of Washington, near the Idaho border, and is much drier than the coastal cities. On average, the area receives just 18 inches of rain per year. Snowfall reaches 10 inches annually. Summer temperatures reach into the 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 20s and 30s.

Washington is in the Pacific Northwest and is just south of British Columbia in Canada, north of Oregon and west of Idaho. The state was carved out of the western part of the Washington Territory and admitted into the Union as the 42nd state in 1889.
Approximately 60% of Washington's population lives within the Seattle metropolitan area. The rest of the population lives amid the rain forests in the west, the mountain ranges in the center, northeast, southeast and east, and the semi-arid deserts in the east.
Named after George Washington, the state is the only one named after a president. In order to distinguish it from Washington D.C., Washington is often referred to as Washington State.

Are 55+ Communities Really "Retirement" Communities?
Many people who live in age-restricted communities (usually for people age 55+) are still gainfully employed. So why would they live in what is considered a "retirement" community? Why not continue to live in a standard neighborhood? People still employed choose age-restricted communities for the same reasons as people who are retired do: the safety, amenities and sense of community that one can provide. And whether employed or not, once the kids are grown, it is sometimes nice to live in a neighborhood where small children do not congregate.
