“Lock and Leave” Epcon Homes

McKee Homes is proud to offer 55+ homebuyers luxurious, “Lock and Leave” Epcon Homes throughout Eastern North Carolina.

You may be asking yourself, what is an Epcon Home? These are single-family homes specifically designed for the 55+ homebuyer, featuring high-end features and options, open concept living areas, with minimal stairs and wider doorways throughout the home.

A low-maintenance, ranch-style home may just be the perfect product for this niche customer looking to downsize from their existing home, without compromise.


Comfort-Rich Living

Here at McKee Homes, we believe that you have more important things to do in your free time than having to worry about the constant year-round lawn maintenance. That’s why our Epcon line of single-family homes boasts the “Lock and Leave” lifestyle, where your yard is maintained by your communities’ homeowner’s association. This provides you with the headache-free, comfort-rich living experience that you’ve been searching for!

As you reach or near the retirement age it seems that there are only so many hours in the day, and why should you spend valuable time raking leaves, trimming hedges, or mowing the lawn?

As mentioned on the Epcon Communities Website, “When you put your working years behind, you want to use your free time for more pleasurable pursuits. Living a low-maintenance lifestyle would allow you to reduce chores and increase the fun. If you’re unsure, ask yourself, how much is your time worth?” 

Low Maintenance Landscaping_

Have you ever been mowing the lawn or pulling weeds and thought to yourself, “I have much better things I can do with my time”? If so, one of our Epcon floorplans may be for you! Just a few examples of activities you could be doing instead of your regular homeowner chores:

  • Visiting with friends and family or reconnecting with old friends
  • Volunteering for a cause that’s close to your heart …. like McKee Homes’ yearly Walks to End Alzheimer’s
  • Pursuing an old (or new) hobby
  • Exploring different places and experiences, like the beautiful coastal town of Wilmington, or the vibrant city of Raleigh
  • Taking advantage of your luxurious neighborhood amenities
  • Relaxing out on your resort-style outdoor courtyard
  • ……. The options are endless!
