The communities built by Marcus Hiles encourage healthy, proactive lifestyles by offering top of the line fitness centers, group exercise events, and incorporating their beautiful natural surroundings. The Mansions of Wylie, located northeast of Dallas in vibrant Wylie, TX, allow tenants to take part in new and exciting experiences every day. The exclusive apartments offer luxurious, resort style living in a unique city with many alluring attractions nearby. Each highly valued resident enjoys free access to not only fitness activities, but also a billiards room, scenic trails, cardio theater, swimming pool and heated spa, private dog park, and a personal trainer. The Villas on Bear Creek offer tenants an inviting hometown vibe within a stunning creek-side setting. As a Luxurious Active Senior Community residents enjoy the ability to “choose their own lifestyle” from an unrivaled amount of amenities and intellectual, cultural, sports, and social activities. The complex houses two championship shuffleboard courts, a dedicated arts and crafts room, on-site library, picnic and barbecue areas, golf putting green, executive game room, horseshoe pitching area, and multiple breathtaking wooded walking trails meandering alongside Bear Creek.
Marcus Hiles urges his residents to take advantage of the onsite footpaths, noting that tenants who take advantage of even brief exercising on the paths enjoy healthier lives. In 2008, a study by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine gave further proof, suggesting that people living near park areas tended to have a lower risk of obesity; while a 2010 study by the journal Social Science and Medicine determined that people residing near parks and open spaces were more relaxed when compared to others who spent less time in the outdoors. Hiles, a firm supporter of community building, says that beyond their ability to help lower energy costs and encourage active lifestyles, trails also promote a sense of closeness among neighbors, with pathways causing spontaneous meetings and interactions. Environmental, practical and fun, walking trails are an public meeting space no housing development should be without.
