We’d like to thank you for stopping by our new website. We’ve worked hard to make it the absolute the best it can possibly be when you’re looking for an active retirement community in the Auburn, Alabama area (or just about anywhere in the state, period!) Whether you’re on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop, you’ll be able to easily discover the great amenities offered by The Legacy at Cary Creek.

There are lots of gated communities for active adults across the country. But we don’t like to focus on the “gated” part too much, because that seems limiting; living at The Legacy isn’t about being bound in, it’s about being free to spend your days as you like! Let’s take a look at what makes The Legacy at Cary Creek such a special 55-plus retirement community.

The Area

The Legacy is situated on 57 acres in the growing city of Auburn, Alabama. The site was chosen because of how we could work the neighborhood into the existing topography, including Cary Creek itself. Our active adult community is in an out of the way spot in Auburn but is still close by necessities like the just-outside-the-gate Publix. (You can also drive your road-worthy golf cart down there!) There are also walking paths throughout the property, as well as gardens and three ponds. We’ve also left many of the old trees on the property so that there’s already some mature landscaping from the very beginning.

The Homes

The homes we offer here in our active adult community are all built with over-55 living in mind. They’re all main-floor focused, and every one of them has zero-entry access (meaning that there are no steps to navigate in order to enter the house). You’ll have options of 2-bedroom, 3-bedroom, and 4-bedroom models, with a lot of variability in case you want to swap one of those out for an office, exercise room, or craft room. We have eight different designs from which to choose, so there’s sure to be something that will perfectly match your 55+ lifestyle.

The Clubhouse

The homes we have here at our adult community are wonderfully warm and inviting, but you’ll no doubt be spending quite a bit of time with the many amenities you’ll find on the grounds. One of the most popular is The Clubhouse, our 3,500 square foot facility that can be used for parties or for get-togethers with your neighbors. It has a great room for the gathering, as well as a huge kitchen that is large enough to hold cooking classes and wine tastings. There’s a game room so that you can meet your friends for cards, and a sitting area if you want to converse with visitors or watch an important TV show with a large group of friends. Oh, it’s also the location of our fitness studio so that you can exercise if you don’t have the equipment you want at home.

Just outside of The Clubhouse is another great aspect of living in our 55-and-over community: the covered porch. There’s 2,500 square feet of porch for you to rest and relax on, enjoying the cooling winds that blow through. From there you’ll be able to enjoy the views of both nature and your neighbors enjoying the outdoor activities. What activities? Well, there’s always…

The Pool

It sure can get hot here in Alabama, but who wants to spend all of the time and money taking care of a pool? We’ll handle that for you, because we have a saltwater pool that you’re going to love! It’s a great place to gather with neighborhood friends or find that time of day when you can have your own private dip. With a grill and wood-burning pool nearby, you can just plan your day around the pool!


Pickleball is growing in popularity, and with good reason. Part tennis, part badminton, part ping pong, it’s a great way to spend the day and get some exercise. Our courts are built according to USA Pickleball Association guidelines, so you’ll have to rely on your skill to win — no blaming the court! There will be classes offered by professionals on how to play, and how to win!

The fact is, when we build The Legacy at Cary Creek, we went all out. We wanted to attract every person who’s interested in a 55-plus community to not even consider any other place. That’s why we built brand new homes amongst natural topography and added the absolute best amenities possible.

We want everyone who stops by The Legacy to want to live here from the moment they stop by. If you’d like to schedule a tour of our active community, simply contact us. We’re very proud of The Legacy and look forward to showing you around!
