Villa Cortese community in Leisure World of Maryland

Villa Cortese community in Leisure World of Maryland

 Pennfield 14801 exterior

Just from its name, the Villa Cortese community in Leisure World of Maryland bespeaks the classical elegances of Italian architecture, design, culture, and fare. In 1994-1996, Italian artisans and Leisure World developers enshrined these elements in a convenient, modern living atmosphere. A four-story garden-style development situated on Pennfield Circle, Villa Cortese allures residents not just with its exterior, but also with its heightened inner senses of community and security.


The Villa Cortese buildings make their grand first impressions with flower beds in full bloom against creamy-dreamy pastel façades. Walking paths leading to piazzas provide residents with a European-esque experience amid the well-kept Leisure World landscape.


Upon entry, which is reinforced by an electronic security system and visitor authorization measures, residents feel at home in a warm, welcoming lobby. They are then guided to elevators ascending to individual condo units. Ranging from one- to three-bedroom models, Villa Cortese units include an eat-in kitchen, a master suite, and a separate outdoor storage unit. Many units boast an enclosed sunroom and entertainment space as well. Open parking is available outside, and some condos are sold with an indoor garage parking space. Sprinkler systems and fire alarms are installed in each unit and all around the buildings.


But Villa Cortese is more than just an apartment complex; it is a self-contained community. Residents receive mail in their own mailboxes, and an independent newsletter—the Villa Voice—circulates monthly with news and upcoming social events. One of the buildings houses a common library and a community room for all Villa Cortese residents to enjoy. Additionally, residents have the opportunity to impact theirliving experiences by joining one of six advisory committees or participating with the Villa Cortese Board of Directors.


The Villa Cortese buildings are conveniently located near Leisure World restaurants, Clubhouse I, the outdoor pool facility, and Leisure World’s main entrance gate. With shuttle bus transportation, residents can easily travel around the community and to the nearby Leisure World Plaza. Framed by authentic homage to a traditional European village, Villa Cortese promises luxury, security, and social gratification to each one of its residents.
