Welty TownHomes are the perfect solution for people over 65 who want to downsize and simplify their lives without sacrificing beauty, comfort and other advantages of their own homes. The charming, Tudor-style apartment community consists of 12 single-story, two-bedroom townhomes with living spaces that range from 1,425 to 1,543 square feet.
There are no steps to climb when entering the home or garage. Each living room features French doors leading to a covered patio and a second, open patio. Beyond the patios is a beautifully landscaped community green space. Each townhome has a two-car attached garage with an additional 515 square feet of space and a driveway with an electric snow-melt system.
The distinctive Welty TownHomes feature steeply pitched slate-style roofs, brick walls, half-timber accents, period garage doors and mullioned windows. The design takes its cue from some of the prominent Tudor-style architectural features of the Good Shepherd Nursing Home, another Welty property.
Residents’ rent covers all interior, exterior and grounds maintenance. The homes include all major kitchen and laundry appliances, which will also be maintained by Welty.
The townhomes are at 1287 National Road in Wheeling, in the same block as the Bertha Welty Apartments and just across the street from Clara Welty Apartments and the Welty Home. The property is within walking distance of many churches, medical offices, and shops.
Welty TownHomes were constructed with funding from the Clara Welty Trust.
