Millbank – Community

Millbank is ideally located – adjacent to the Fort Mill Golf Club, and a short walk to beautiful downtown Fort Mill.  With a planned senior center, shopping, restaurants, and the golf club, you’ll find living is easy here.  Sell your mower and spend time doing what you love, because lawn maintenance is provided by the community homeowners’ association.  Uptown Charlotte is just a short drive away, and offers all the conveniences of city life – including a major airport, plus cultural events, fine dining and more!   

55+ LIFESTYLE

Limited to the 55 and better crowd,  Millbank is an active adult community where you’ll be surrounded by neighbors that share similar interests, making it easy to forge new friendships and make lasting social connections.  

LOW-MAINTENANCE LIFESTYLE

Spend your precious time on our golf course or socializing rather than mowing the lawn.  Yard care is included at Millbank and our new homes are designed to be low maintenance.  If you travel or visit family often, you won’t have to worry about your home.  Our ranch plans provide day to day one level living, with 2nd level options for storage, or bonus space for guests.

MILLBANK BORDERS THE FORT MILL GOLF CLUB

Fort Mill Golf Club is an 18-hole championship golf course that rolls through tree-lined fairways. The club was founded in 1948 with the front 9 designed by the legendary Donald Ross. George Cobb designed the back 9, which opened in 1959. In the heart of Fort Mill and just minutes from Charlotte, Fort Mill Golf Club is a perennial favorite among local golfers. Conceived by legends of golf design, it features a layout that is friendly to walkers and perfect for an afternoon away.

COMMUNITY FEELING

The sense of community is one of the most praised aspects of living in a 55+ community, as we naturally form friendships with people which we can relate.  Studies have shown that having a sense of community greatly impacts a person’s well-being and quality of life. Neighbors build lasting friendships and often become close –  like family.  Millbank is large enough to allow for a diverse group of neighbors, but not so many that you get lost in the shuffle.
