Fantastic neighborhood offers great new opportunity

Sited on more than 70 pastoral acres and strategically located near Route 1 and Interstate 95, find one of Topsfield’s most sought-after subdivisions. With a plan in place for only 24 luxurious homes to be built, Hickory Beech is well under way to becoming one of this town’s most prestigious addresses.

One of these homes, a classic Colonial with exquisite detailing and generous floor plan, is now framed and sided and simply awaiting one lucky purchaser. “This is the perfect time to buy because selections may still be made,” says Realtor Paul Herrick of The Paul Herrick Group at Keller Williams Realty of Lot 22. “Right now, buyers have the ability to make personal choices, to really customize their new home.”

Sitting on the corner of Beech Place and Evergreen Lane, the welcoming farmer’s porch and large tree-lined lot lends an old New England feel. Inside this four-bedroom, 2.5-bath home, find an open and thoughtful design featuring oversized windows and gleaming wood flooring throughout.

The gourmet kitchen promises to be striking yet practical, with copious cabinets, top-of-the-line stainless appliances, granite counters and recessed lighting. A step-down family room will provide a leisurely space, while living and dining rooms featuring high-end finishes and trims will be more formal.

Upstairs, the fluidity and versatility continues with a truly grand layout. Four bedrooms, including a spectacular master suite with sitting room and en suite bath, share this gorgeous space.

Listed for $774,900, the home also features a first-floor library or in-home office, a large rear deck and a spacious walk-out basement.

“This development is really moving along with only a few home sites still available,” the Realtor says. “I really urge buyers to visit the site to see how many new homes have been built and occupied over the last few months. Select this home now and be in by March 30.”
