No matter how many floor plans you have to consider for your new home, it ultimately comes down to the kind of life you want to lead in retirement. At the Knolls, we have more apartment options than most, designed to fit your lifestyle—rather than the other way around. In looking for the perfect layout, though, many of our residents find that their true home is the community itself. Don’t let square footage stop you from living a big life; see how the Bayberry apartment serves as an ideal home base in Westchester County.

Experiences over Things

After rightsizing your way to your best life in retirement, you may find that what you value most are experiences. Of course, you still have a few things that connect you to friends, family and fun memories, but you don’t plan on bringing clutter into your new apartment. In that case, the Bayberry floor plan has everything you need.

Streamlined and ready for your personal items, this one-bedroom, one-bath layout has all the modern amenities you’d expect from the Knolls. You’ll have your own fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel high-end appliances, so you can prepare home-cooked favorites anytime. This space connects to an open living/dining area for those occasional days when you feel like staying in.

But living at the Knolls offers many opportunities to spend time with your neighbors. From your first visit, you’ll be greeted by many people who genuinely want to know your name and more about you. We’re small enough for intimate friendships among residents and staff alike, and large enough for that big life you crave. Regular invitations to dinner, social clubs, happy hours and strolls through our wooded 30-acre grounds will keep you as busy as you’d like to be.

When you’re ready for rest and relaxation, you can always return to your Bayberry apartment. Free from the stress of regular home upkeep and maintenance, you’ll be able to simply unwind. The surprisingly spacious bedroom with walk-in closet serves as the perfect spot to reflect on a day filled with fulfilling experiences. As you wake up each morning, faced with the prospect of new activities, people and places, you’ll come to see The Knolls as your home.

The Best is Right Outside Your Door

For creative minds looking for an environment that encourages innovation, think beyond the floor plan. Our on-site Cultural Arts Program gives you access to dedicated arts spaces in which you can create new masterpieces alongside your like-minded peers. If you’re more interested in the mind-body connection, our Wellness Center provides daily opportunities for fitness and instruction on everything from aerobics to yoga. Access our indoor heated pool that allows even the most dedicated swimmers to stay fit throughout the year.

Are you worried your personal library won’t fit within your Bayberry apartment’s square footage? We have an expansive library for you to treat as your own. Borrow the classics whenever you like and suggest new favorites for the entire community to enjoy. Dining and entertainment space won’t be an issue either. Invite friends, family and neighbors to an enjoyable dining and social experience at one of our casual venues.

Living in the heart of Westchester County brings its own advantages with so many options outside your door. When living at The Knolls, you’ll find yourself enjoying the charm of small- town life with close proximity to the city. Visit the Rockefeller State Park Reserve, only 12 minutes away, to savor the tranquility of nature by birdwatching or hiking. If you’re in the mood for unique shopping, dining or entertainment experiences, take a trip to The Westchester mall nearby. History buffs will appreciate the Norman-style Castle in Tarrytown, a mere 13 minutes away, as well as the legendary Sleepy Hollow near the Hudson River. In addition, The Knolls is less than five minutes away from the Metro-North train station, making a day trip to Grand Central Station in New York City easy and fun.
