Verano Quick Facts

Verano 55 Plus Community Overview
Verano is a 55 Plus neighborhood, nestled within the popular Aliento community. You can view it on the map, here. The neighborhood was first developed around 2017 by popular home builder, Pardee Homes. Although Verano itself is in a village like setting, the common areas throughout Aliento have a rustic feel.
Driving to Verano, you first pass through the gates to Aliento, then a second set of gates to gain access to Verano. With two sets of gates, residents are sure to feel safe and secure.
Verano is actually a subdivision of Aliento, but after visiting many would characterize it as more of a village as opposed to a typical neighborhood. It really is quite charming. Residents enjoy their own private amenities at The Club, a popular hotspot with activities and social events well suited for active adults. While visiting on a hot summer day we noticed a number of residents having fun while keeping cool at their resort styled community pool.
Verano is a wonderful community offering a much needed option for active adults looking to purchase a home in an age restricted neighborhood.
Brief Home Descriptions
Typical homes are sized at 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, and an attached 2-car garage. Homeowners enjoy open floor plans and roomy kitchens with quartz counters, stainless appliances, center island with sinks, plenty of cabinet storage and walk-in pantry. Usually, the master bathrooms include dual sinks with separate tubs and showers. The homes include laundry rooms with utility sink.

Amenities Geared Toward Active Adults
The amenities here are quite nice. The Club is the social hotspot and a perfect place to gather and socialize. As mentioned, Verano has its own set of gates and amenities but potential buyers should be advised, it comes with a SECOND HOA cost. The upside is, residents also have access to ALL the Aliento AND the Verano amenities. The downside is, there are 2 HOA fees.

Verano Photo Gallery
Here is one shot of the Verano common area and a few interior shots of the model home interiors. We have plenty more but at least this gives an idea of what the homes are like. Obviously, the designs reflect a modern decor with open floor plans.
Description of Homes in Verano
The Verano farm style homes are super cute, nicely designed and built to suit the needs of active adults. The architecture fits in nicely with the natural surroundings and picturesque hills of Aliento. There are no condominiums or townhomes and all of the homes are considered to be houses, or single family homes. The homes include a mix of single story and two story homes, but in most two story homes the master bedroom is conveniently located downstairs.
Home Layouts and Sizes
The Verano homes come in a variety of floor plans, sized from 1,599 to 2,470 sq ft. Homeowners enjoy large, open floor plans with 2 or 3 bedrooms and from 2 to 3.5 bathrooms. Walking through the model homes, we noticed some include convenient features such as a curb-less shower entry, pet wash sink, and even a small pet bed alcove located adjacent to the master bedroom. Most of the two story homes have a loft and/or a upstairs balcony, a perfect spot to relax and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or perhaps a cool beverage in the evening.
Our Thoughts about Verano
We love everything about the Verano community, especially the homes. Even though we’d like to see more single story homes, the two story models can work as well. Most active adults can make their way up the stairs and the second floor is nicely laid out for guests and the grandchildren will love it!
Remember, the model homes shown in the gallery above are professionally staged. They often include options that are NOT included in the starting prices. Also, when considering price don’t forget about your (2) monthly HOA costs.
