The 8.9-acre location presented site and building design challenges. The new community nestled into the side of a hill provides a warm, safe and attractive environment for its residents. The architectural design featuring an organic exterior palette is inspired from local hillside farmsteads and Monongahela River mills, that accentuate the natural elements of stone and wood. The large wood truss porte-cochere and dormers give the four-story building a warm and cozy mountain lodge impression. Amenities include an elegantly appointed dining area, library, fitness center, beauty salon, theater, arts and craft studio, and well-landscaped outdoor courtyards.
