Kendal-Crosslands Communities offer a spectrum of retirement choices, from lifetime care with full services at Kendal at Longwood and Crosslands, to residential living with maintenance and housekeeping services at Coniston and Cartmel. Founded on Quaker values and known for fiscal responsibility and transparency in governance, Kendal’s not-for-profit communities emphasize social responsibility and respect for the individual, foster a strong sense of community, and promote lifelong learning.
Kendal-Crosslands is a vibrant, active, and growing community located in historic Kennett Square, Pa.—named one of America’s top 10 small towns. Here you’ll be surrounded by the beauty of changing seasons, while Kendal’s unsurpassed residential services and comprehensive wellness and health care choices give you and your family true peace of mind.
Kendal-Crosslands Communities are less than an hour’s drive to downtown Philadelphia—and even closer to Wilmington, Del.—so residents enjoy an ideal blend of community, nature, culture and lifelong learning opportunities. Located in the heart of the Brandywine Valley—a region steeped in history and the arts—the communities enjoy a temperature climate and winters tend to be mild. And close by is public transportation to the myriad attractions of New York City, Baltimore and the Inner Harbor, the Chesapeake Bay area and Washington, D.C.
In 2012, 48 new LEED-certified “green” cottages will be ready on the 128-acre campus of the Kendal at Longwood continuing care retirement community. Planned to meet national Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, Kendal’s new 1,250- to 1,800-square-foot cottages are being built to help sustain both the Earth and active lifestyles for community members. Developed by the U.S. Green Building Council, the LEED Green Building Rating System sets standards for environmentally sustainable construction. The new cottages, which will be paired as duplexes, will incorporate a wide range of energy and water conservation features, including:
- Geothermal heating and cooling;
- High-efficiency appliances, lighting, windows and water heating;
- Building materials that emit low or no air contaminants;
- High-efficiency water fixtures designed for 25-30 percent water savings beyond U.S. Environmental Protection Agency requirements; and
- Landscaping with native, drought-tolerant plants.
There is still opportunity to be considered for occupancy. For more information and to view floor plans and architects’ renderings of the four cottage styles, plus a site map, click here. To learn more, please e-mail Rhoda McNitt at or call 610-335-1246 or 800-216-1920.
