The Villas at Bailey Ranch tower over the surrounding hillsides and are nestled against the greens at Bailey Ranch Golf Course. Residents with the most discriminating of tastes have chosen the Villas to establish their homes because of the tranquil setting and reasonable pricing. One finds it hard to believe that the hub of the community is only a mile away. The golf course setting with rolling hills and scattered trees offers a serene atmosphere.
Residents enjoy convenient access to the Tulsa Metro-area with access to both Highway 169 and Highway 75 only minutes away. The Villas at Bailey Ranch offer a wide variety of amenities that will suit the needs of most residents. Some of those amenities include: 24-hour fitness center, 24-hour emergency maintenance, individual storage areas, refreshing pool with deck, playground, laundry facility, walk-in closets, gourmet kitchens, separate dining room, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
The Villas are on the cutting edge when it comes to apartment living, offering for the first time in Oklahoma, apartments with an attached garage. According to Sara Cresswell, the Villas’ manager, construction of both one and two bedroom apartments, each with an attached garage, is scheduled for completion by the end of the year.
“We are excited to be the first to offer this luxury in the area,” she said. The new phase with attached garages has more of a neighborhood feel. “It gives residents a sense of living in a house,” said Cresswell. “Houses require a lot of work, lawns to mow, roofs to repair and termites to fend off.” According to Cresswell, in the new apartments with attached garages, residents have the status and convenience of a house-type atmosphere without the hassles.
Apartment dwelling is rapidly becoming the wave of the future. Owning a home is not as important as it used to be. Some residents are saying thanks, but no thanks to home ownership. According to a survey last year by Fannie Mae, 28 percent of renters nationwide rent as a matter of choice, meaning they could afford to buy but do not. That is the highest percentage of Americans saying they prefer to rent since the survey was launched seven years ago. They are drawn to apartments by perks such as swimming pools and fitness centers, the opportunity to live close to where they work and the freedom from worry and hassle. At a time when jobs are demanding and schedules erratic, renting suddenly seems practical.
The Villas at Bailey Ranch is a community created for your well being – a place where luxury, comfort and peace of mind combine to become your home. When you choose to live at the Villas, the stresses of life get a little easier, and your weekends will not be spent mowing the lawn or trimming the hedges. Travel time is quicker and you can say goodbye to the traffic woes of Tulsa. The Villas are ready to welcome you home to Owasso, the end of the trail.
