St. Ann’s Community developed Cherry Ridge, its new campus 15 minutes from its existing location. The project consists of 55 patio homes, a 71-unit independent living facility and a 51-unit assisted living facility, with multi-purpose space and a chapel, as well as a 24-hour unit care facility.
The entire campus portrays an arts and crafts theme, with the chapel serving as the centerpiece. Elements of stone and brick were used for entrances to the new buildings, and wood cedar shake, a style of siding, was used as opposed to horizontal siding, which is used more often today.
Potential residents will have the choice of one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as two-bedroom cottage homes. The 1,300-square-foot cottage homes include a kitchenette, living room, two bedrooms, bathroom and a garage. Common areas shared by residents include a library, café, beauty salon, fitness center and the chapel, which is the centerpiece of the campus, with meditation rooms.
Cherry Ridge takes its name from the careful site master planning, aimed to preserve the specimen cherry trees adjacent to Ridge Road, the entry point of the community. All buildings have been designed in a Craftsman style.
