Save Money – and live LARGE – in a 1-Bedroom Apartment at Matthews Glen

Discover How Much You Can Achieve in Retirement by Rightsizing Your Space. (704) 845-5900

Extra Space vs. Extra Experience? You Decide.

Many who are considering retirement community living get stuck on the notion that they need two bedrooms (or more) to be happy in retirement. "What if my kids visit? What about an office or an arts and crafts room?"

The reality is, a one-bedroom apartment in a vibrant, active community such as Matthews Glen in Matthews, NC, is all you need. Why? It's all about the amenities. Visitors can take advantage of guest apartments. And with abundant social spaces, keep the clutter out of your own apartment. How often will you really use that standalone office? Perhaps you could find a nook in your master bedroom, saving the money to travel more.

There’s so much happening outside your apartment – dining, programming, social events, activities, trips, entertainment and more – an extra bedroom just ends up costing more than it’s used.

Consider One-Bedroom Living with Matthews Glen!


This active and welcoming community is so close to so much.

Located on the quiet edge of the “Queen City” of Charlotte, Matthews Glen puts a world of options at your doorstep. Find shopping and dining within minutes of our newly-expanded campus. Major league sports, a diverse assortment of museums, art galleries, performing art venues and historical attractions are just a few of the things to visit in the area. Enjoy the security of knowing that world class healthcare is nearby. A scenic drive in either direction takes you to Asheville and the mountains or Carolina’s popular beaches.

With all these amenities and opportunities available outside your door, your living space is multiplied!

Peace of mind, joy of living.

Matthews Glen is an Acts Retirement-Life Community. Why is this important? Acts frees you to be carefree. For almost 50 years, Acts has helped older adults to increase their quality of life by decreasing their anxiety about the future. With Acts Life Care®, the most secure contract in senior living, you'll know your future health care has been prearranged – at today's health care prices, not tomorrow's! That's peace of mind at a time when you'll need it the most. The result is real security and the freedom to enjoy every day.

Make every day what you want it to be. Sit and savor a great book or get your body in motion with a fitness class. Take long walks or grow the garden of your dreams. Join friends for bridge or woodworking or conversation over a delicious meal. If this sounds like life at a year-round resort, you're beginning to get the idea.
