You'll find your new home here ... English Commons at Topsfield Setting the standard for fine living in a maintenance-free, 55+ community

Life after 55 is an amazing time. Having achieved experience, wisdom and understanding through life’s many twists and turns, you have created a wonderful foundation for enjoyable years ahead. It’s your time to enjoy the things that you like, be it travel, making new friends, spending time with family, or as simple as exploring new surroundings. Many active adults find their time better spent enjoying these rewarding activities, instead of worrying about the upkeep of a single-family home. After all — you’ve earned it!

English Commons at Topsfield is located at the gateway to Topsfield and is an open-space paradise all its own, including a 50-acre conservatory surrounding the new, maintenance-free homes being built by C.P. Berry Homes. Here, residents enjoy the carefree lifestyle that is part of this active-adult condominium community. Rather than worrying about the cares of home upkeep, residents can enjoy the 4-acre center common green with scenic gazebo and a Nicklaus-design putting green, stroll the walking path to the clubhouse (which includes a gathering room, reading room, fitness center, heated swimming pool and large, furnished sun deck), or hike the natural walking trail through the preserved open space. Best of all, leave your snow shovel behind — all outdoor maintenance is taken care of for you.

Homes start at 2,800 square feet and offer customization and expanded living spaces up to nearly 4,000 square feet. All homes are built to Energy Star Level 2 Certification (meaning significant energy savings and year-round comfort) and include C.P. Berry Homes’ exclusive two-year new-home warranty. With luxurious first-floor master suites, exquisite interior finishes, convenient attached garages and more, you’ll not miss a thing when you choose your new home at English Commons.

Just recently, C.P. Berry Homes was recognized with two prestigious awards for English Commons: On Oct. 17, the North Shore Association of Realtors named English Commons the recipient of its Community Enhancement Award, which is “presented to a community project that takes special care to fit in and make a difference with its physical presence in the community. The award highlights projects that make our communities a better place to live and have a positive effect on the local community.”
