Rosehaven Blossoms with New Amenities Center
See Community Improvements After Seasons of Waiting
Before Treehouse Communities acquired Rosehaven Estates, the corner lot on South Street was nothing more than a chain-linked junkyard.
Rosehaven residents saw great potential. Plans were drawn up for a humming, modern community center to take the junkyard’s place. A new laundry room was envisioned. An amenities center was planned. And then three years passed. The new hall went unbuilt, the laundry room was unavailable, no amenities center materialized. And the junkyard stood barren.
Then in July 2018, Rosehaven became a Treehouse Community.
Treehouse Communities prioritizes consistent community improvements. And dream-big projects, like gardens, require a large investment and lots of time. “We want our residents to feel that their community is always being improved. We want them to be proud” said Tom Stapley, Treehouse co-founder.
We were as ready for change as our Rosehaven residents. So, immediately and simultaneously, three projects got underway.
Gone was the empty junkyard. And in its place is a spacious, new hall where in 2018 residents hosted the annual Rosehaven Thanksgiving dinner for the first time in three years - under new lighting and frosty air conditioning.
A month later the big laundry room opened with fresh flooring under-foot and shiny refurbished washers and dryers.
And in July of 2019 -- almost exactly a year from the acquisition date -- a sparkling amenities center opened over the junkyard lot. The brand-new center features a refreshing pool and spa, computer room, kitchen, exercise room, billiards room, and gathering spaces.
And wait. The growth doesn’t end there.
Next month, the west end showers open with everything remodeled from the studs to the showerheads. The craft room will also open with a fresh coat of paint, new flooring, and new cabinets to hold all the supplies.
Joe, a Rosehaven native of 10 years adds “I think it’s absolutely fabulous. This is the best thing that’s happened to our community in a long time.”
Card club meets seven nights a week. Joe’s started up the pool league, if you feel so inclined. And of course, the monthly dance is a ball.
The years without gathering spaces are all but forgotten.
Rosehaven Estates is buzzing again.
