South Franklin Circle Home Styles: A Quiet Refuge

In this monthly series, you’ll meet South Franklin Circle residents who will offer you an intimate look inside their homes. Whether it’s a cottage, attached garden home, apartment or town home – see how each resident adapted the space to their own taste and lifestyle.

South Franklin Circle resident Barbara McKinney loves her first-floor apartment.

Located in a building set further back on campus, she likes being close to the more wooded areas of the property.


“It’s pretty, quiet and private,” she says, “but I don’t feel isolated. The way the buildings and homes are laid out, it feels like a little neighborhood. And getting to the community center is not a problem. I’ve got my car, or security is always available to give me a ride.”

Barbara enjoys an active social life both at South Franklin Circle and off-site, getting together with friends three or four times a week for bridge games. She also frequently entertains friends over dinner at Radius, South Franklin Circle’s on-site restaurant.

“The people living here are very welcoming,” she notes. “It’s very easy to make friends, and there is always something to do.”




Wintering in Florida six months out of the year, Barbara can easily “lock and leave” her apartment and know that everything is taken care of in her absence. “While I’m gone, they take care of everything. This place is magnificent.  It’s very well run. They don’t make mistakes.”


“I’m glad I made the decision to move here,” she says. “And my daughters are too!”
