Built in 1981 on the lush Chester County landscape, just off Locust Grove and Haines Mill roads in Pocopson Township—Coniston is the smaller of the two 50+ communities that are part of Kendal~Crosslands Communities. Coniston’s homes occupy about a third of the community’s 36-acre campus, which sits atop a scenic ridge.

Coniston is located less than 2 miles from the Crosslands campus, allowing convenient access to the many programs and amenities enjoyed by all Kendal~Crosslands Communities residents.

The 18 carriage homes are all two bedrooms, a den and 2 ½ baths, with half also having a second-floor loft which can be used as flex space as you see fit. All have wood-burning fireplaces and two-car garages.

Residents enjoy social gatherings, hiking in the meadows, watching fireworks from nearby Longwood Gardens, and simply relaxing on their outdoor decks.

Meet Our Residents

The Cullens made a move to Coniston in 2004, which is a 50+ retirement community offering maintenance-free living and is a part of Kendal~Crosslands Communities (KCC). Coniston provided the desired independence and proximity to Betsey’s mom, along with a fabulous meadow view.
