Our Homes

Spark joy in your new home at Linkside at Old Hawthorne.



  • We have lived at Linkside for 1 1/2 years. We came from rural Southeast Missouri in search of a retirement filled with fun and a simpler lifestyle. We found Linkside at Old Hawthrone to be the perfect fit. We chose the one level Mariposa as our retirement home. While building, we were able to choose from a wide variety of interior finishes and the builders at Linkside listened to our ideas for a few "extras" that made our home cozy and very functional. We have experienced all four seasons in Columbia, and find the home to be very warm and comfortable in winter and cool in the summer. It is, per our choice, a smaller home and we love being able to maintain it with minimal effort, which leaves more time for golf and social events offered by Old Hawthorne. We live within walking distance of the Old Hawthorne clubhouse and are adjacent to the golf course. We also found that our home is great for entertaining and we have also used the lovely Linkside Living Clubhouse for hosting some larger social events. We highly recommend Linkside at Old Hawthorne....come join us for a great retirement!
