Now over 50 percent sold, Phase IIB at Strongwater Crossing offers a great deal

Buy now and enjoy this spring in a thriving new community

Bike rides around the neighborhood, daily runs on nature paths and hiking in your own backyard are activities that are planned for future phases at Strongwater Crossing in Salem.

This planned community offers homebuyers a new attitude for living, outdoors and in.

Five unique home designs are being constructed by DiBiase Corporation with quality standards, finishes and amenities such as underground utilities and intuitive climate-control systems.

“In addition, more than 90 acres of natural open space have been preserved to provide you and your family the enjoyment of living here, with magnificent, amazing views,” said Ericka Pace, portfolio manager for Strongwater Crossing. “Run, bike and hike the rich reward of proposed trails, paths and places to discover, all in your own backyard.”

Strongwater Crossing is planned to be a neighborhood of 130 homes built on 160 acres of land with natural trails and bubbling brooks.

“We consider this community unique, far from the average development,” Pace said. “One, you can’t find this quality of construction anywhere else on North Shore; and, two, enjoy the natural out-of-doors, it’s right there in your backyard. Those two attributes really set Strongwater Crossing apart.”

Now the move to Strongwater Crossing is even easier as the infrastructure for Phase IIB is well underway. “This Phase of Strongwater Crossing offers premier home-sites and an ideal time frame for families looking to move in early 2014 and have a seamless transition from the sale of their departure residence to a newly constructed home incorporating their design tastes,” said Pace. Listed at a valued price of $498,900 on Lot 9, the Derby Design is compact, yet popular and functional with an approximate floor space of 2,150 square feet, not including additional space that can be finished in the walk-up attic and lower level. The Derby offers three bedrooms, 21/2 baths, a formal dining room, an open kitchen and living area. Pace added, “By choosing to buy now, a buyer can incorporate their tastes by selecting finishing design touches to make this home their own.”
