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

(Continued)

In addition to the Derby, the Hawthorne is a desirable floor plan available in Phase IIB before it is sold out. The Hawthorne, a single-family home with 2,260 square feet, has an open layout flowing from the kitchen through the dining area and into the family room, anchored by a gas fireplace. The second floor holds four bedrooms, one of them the master bedroom suite with a vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet and a tiled bath with whirlpool tub and separate shower.

“It’s important to note that this phase is almost complete with limited availability for each home style. We are in the process of developing Phase IIIA for pre-sales; however, buyers can expect higher pricing and longer delivery times until construction is well underway. Just another reason why now is the time to call Strongwater Crossing home,” Pace said. “The Hawthorne has been a popular floor plan this year; we currently have one home-site remaining that can accommodate this plan, priced at a competitive $512,900 for those looking for more space and wanting to grow with their home.”

Every home comes with high-end features and finishes such as granite, hardwood floors and tile.

“Everyone comments on the quality of construction when they see a Strongwater Crossing home,” Pace said. “And, especially if they know the builder, they want to be in a DiBiase house again.

“Strongwater Crossing is drawing commuters from Boston, families and first-time homebuyers,” she continued. “We have seen local hospital employees among our many interested buyers. The community is ideal for anyone, but it has proven to be a huge draw for Salem Hospital. People who are looking for more are coming here.”

Amenities include two-car garages with electronic door openers, first-floor laundry hookups, sun deck, central vac, security system, central air and gas heat. Granite kitchens have maple cabinets, stainless-steel appliances and attached breakfast areas.
