Those enamored by the promise of a low-maintenance, simplified lifestyle will indeed be delighted to hear about the North Shore’s latest 55+ community. Privately set off of Route 1A on over 30 bucolic acres, Wenham Pines will feature 22 luxury New England-style townhouses intended for easy home ownership. Presented by Coldwell Banker Premier Communities, average price will be $1,450,000.

“These homes are being thoughtfully and strategically placed to take full advantage of the beautiful surroundings and to provide maximum privacy. Many of the homes will even have views of Wenham Lake and the golf course,” says Kevin O’Grady, Manager of Coldwell Banker Premier Communities.

While there will be two floor plans from which to choose (The Hamilton and The Wenham), every home will bring open concept designs with red oak hardwood floors, recessed lighting, over-sized two-car garages, expansive decks, ceiling speakers, and well-designed first floor master suites with “his and hers” walk-in closets and spa-like baths. Gourmet kitchens will come complete with high-end Bosch and Thermador appliances, premium soft-close cabinetry with under-cabinet lighting, granite counter tops and generous center islands.

Formal living rooms with soaring cathedral ceilings will feature gas fireplaces and custom wets bars while dining rooms will be enhanced by coffered ceilings, crown molding and chair rails. In the family rooms, expect to see vaulted tray ceilings and double sliding doors.

Though all of the homes will feature two guest bedrooms and a shared bath on the second level, buyers who purchase early enough will have the opportunity to add another full bath should they desire. There will also be options for finishing the lower level and/or installing an elevator.

Because energy efficiency and sustainability has been made a top priority, the homes at Wenham Pines are being built with Energy Star rated Andersen windows, certified 95% efficient heating systems and tankless water heaters. On the lengthy list of additional amenities find first floor laundry and powder rooms, smart Nest thermostats, Kohler plumbing fixtures, security systems, and professional landscaping with walking paths that meander throughout the community. Designed to preserve conservation land, Wenham Pines will retain over 70% open space and existing tree vegetation. Furthermore, all lawn care, snow plowing, exterior painting and routine exterior home repairs will be covered.

“The builder has done such a great job with standard finishes that most buyers will find no need to upgrade a thing. These are going to be truly spectacular homes,” says Sales Director Jane Lane. “And the location of course, couldn’t be more convenient. Wenham Pines is within minutes to two commuter train stations, I95, quaint shops and restaurants, and beautiful Crane Beach.”

Model homes are expected to be complete by January. However, interested parties are urged to come by the sales office/design center Thursday through Monday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, or to schedule an appointment on a Tuesday or Wednesday, call any one of the sales team members.
