Property Description

This beautifully designed community is conveniently located in downtown Lafayette in close proximity to transit and amenities. Belle Terre includes 17 apartments specifically for seniors with physical disabilities. The large windows and open layout of the courtyards literally invite one in as well as open up the outside to the interior.

Designed to create a healthy living environment, this non-smoking community includes many sustainable features for energy and water conservation. Other highlights include an onsite manager’s unit, a community room that opens onto an outdoor patio and formal garden, two sunrooms that overlook a second landscaped courtyard, a computer learning center/library, an exercise room and raised planters for resident gardening. On-site laundry is available.

Seniors living at Belle Terre have access to supportive resident services designed to help them “age in place” and remain independent for as long as possible.
