A central manor house that enhances the manner in which residents live.
The developers of The Settlement at Powhatan Creek understand that many of today’s retirees don’t want the continuous cleaning, heating and cooling, or maintenance associated with a large home and grounds. They commissioned GuernseyTingle to help them conceive the centerpiece of this new 400 home community that would provide spaces for fitness, hobbies, and entertaining.
The 15,000 sq. ft. Resident’s Club provides all the amenities of a well-appointed manor house and then some. GuernseyTingle created a hybrid between a classic country club and a comfortable extension of the residents’ homes. It includes intimate spaces such as the lounge with billiards table, seating areas throughout the various connecting galleries, small seating areas around the outdoor pool complete with an outdoor fireplace, and flexible craft rooms for small or medium groups. It also includes a grandly appointed ballroom with catering kitchen, a gracious reception lobby, and a covered drive-through portico. For maintaining an active, healthy lifestyle there is a full fitness center, an exercise room with cushioned floor, locker rooms on par with any private club, and an indoor pool with spa.
