Weekley, who also builds in the award-winning Encore 55+ neighborhood—comply with

annual “Music in the Meadow.” With hiking, biking,
jogging, swimming, and ease of connecting with neighbors, there is no shortage of opportunities. (Kids can even learn at Briar Chapel, with a charter school and middle school right in the community.)

Veranda, the “the front porch” of Briar Chapel, is an easy bike ride away. It’s filled with everything from daycare to dentists, burgers to beers, lively spots to wine and dine, and so much more.
