The Villas at Riverview is situated on the banks of the Delaware River in Bristol, Pa. The Villas at Riverview were built by McGrath Builders with active adults in mind. McGraths Quad Style Homes are very desirable by buyers and were built in several communities which include: The Villas at Shady Brook, The Villas at Five Ponds, and The Villas at Newtown. These gorgeous homes offer low-maintenance, have abundant storage, beautiful stone exteriors, and scenic river views.
The Villas at Riverview are just minutes from Interstate 95, Route 1, and the bridges that connect to New Jersey.

Demand for 55 + Housing is at an all-time high in Bucks County, Pa.
With a growing number of Baby Boomers reaching retirement age, 55+ communities may become even more popular with older homebuyers. The National Association of Home Builders, expects home sales in 55+ communities to increase by nearly 25 percent this year. By 2020, they also estimate that households over 55 years old could be as high as 46.6 percent (up from 42 percent in 2012).
The Demand for 55+ Housing in Bucks County is GREAT! We wish we had more inventory. Many communities have a waiting list due to the community’s popularity. Some of the communities have not seen a home come on the market in months, or even a year.
These Communities include:
Legacy Oaks in Warrington
The Villas at Chancellor’s Glen in Bensalem
The Villas at Riverview in Bristol (One just came on the market!)
Heritage Creek Estates in Warrington – A Single Home
The Villages of Doylestown
Avenrowe in Fairless Hills
The Quarters in Newtown
The Villas at Five Ponds in Warminster
Yardley Point in Yardley
The Swain Real Estate Team is watching each 55+ community closely. If you have an interest in one on these communities, let us know and we will make sure you are on our waiting lists to be notified first! Just email us at TheSwainTeam@gmail.com or call us at (215) 757-7257.
To meet the demand, Bucks County has a few new construction 55+ Communities.
Regency at Yardley
Delancey Court – Newtown, Pa
The Preserve at Lamplighter Village
The Enclave at Upper Makefield
Village of Southampton - Southampton, Pa
Meridian of Valley Square - Warrington, Pa
For many we talk to amenities are important. The amount of amenities offered can vary greatly from one community to the next. All of the new construction, except for The Enclave at upper Makefield and Village of Southampton, offer a clubhouse with amenities.
While active adult developments typically cater to those who want to downsize with small, thoughtfully designed homes, many new communities include homes in a wide range of sizes. It is not unusual to find model homes ranging in size from barely 1,000 to over 3,000 square feet in the same community. Many homes continue to offer main-level living, with first-floor master bedroom suites, but second-story lofts are becoming a popular way to extend the living space.
If you have any questions or are ready to find your 55 and greater community, contact us today at TheSwainTeam@gmail.com or call us at (215) 757-7257. We are more than willing to help you.
A common question I get from 55+ Community candidates is What is a Quad? So I thought I would share with everything a few details that many may not realize.
What is a Quad?
A quad house is a house attached on 2 consecutive or perpendicular sides to 2 other houses, each one with private and direct entrance via their front or side garden. When facing any of the four sides of the group, they appear to be semi-detached houses. Quad pretty clearly describes the style. If you 'cut' the building into quarters, each corner would be one unit. What is nice about this style is each unit has two exterior walls on the corner. Garages typically divide the units on the first floor, giving a feeling of separation and great privacy.
Typically upstairs builders offered a loft, attic storage, and option bathroom. This again would be the divider for the second story. We see a great example of this is one of more popular communities, The Villas at Shadybrook where the upstairs level is a huge open loft with storage and an optional full bath used for guests or as a third bedroom.
The Villas at Shadybrook were built by McGrath. McGrath built a few of the 55+ communities in Bucks County, Pa including The Villas at Riverview, Avenrowe, The Villages at Flowers Mill, Villas of Newtown, and The Villas at Five Ponds. McGrath offered a few popular floor plans that were offered in a few of their 55+ communities: The Mulberry, The Rosewell, The Thornhill.
Both The Villas at Chancellor's Glen and The Villas at Regent's Glen in Bensalem, Pa were built by Granor Price.
The Villas at Chancellor's Glen was built in response to the demand for The Villas at Regent's Glen which only has 68 homes in their 55+ Community. Both were built with the same floor plan which included a basement and offered 1,265 sq ft. With options you could have up to 1,518 sq ft.
Legacy Oaks in Northampton, Pa was built by Barness and offered three different floor plans. Like the other Quads they too offered a loft upstairs, optional storage room, and optional bathroom.
Quads also often have a fair amount of green space around the buildings, giving each unit its own private corner and a feeling more like a house than many townhome styles. I encourage many of my client's to keep an open mind to a quad, because once you step in one it feels more like being in a single family home than a condo or townhome.
