The Daily News of Newburyport

---- — The signs are appearing — birds singing at dawn, the sun rising higher in the sky and its warmth feeling so welcome, new buds appearing on trees, Marathon Monday right around the corner. Is it your time to spring ahead and make plans for a new beginning in a new home? Read on for some spectacular opportunities from C.P. Berry Homes.

English Commons at Topsfield

Ground was recently broken for the final building at the award-winning English Commons at Topsfield. This new building will contain two Winthrop homes with walk-out lower levels, attached two-car garages and a westerly exposure on the back for enjoyable sunsets from your deck and lower patio.

There are only five other new homes that remain available at English Commons. The community is nearly 85 percent sold out. If you’ve been on the fence thinking about making a move, you really must act soon before it’s too late. Don’t miss out on your chance to live at the North Shore’s finest maintenance-free, 55-plus community — English Commons at Topsfield.

The Sales Center is open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. After-hours appointments are always welcome. Homes start at $825,000.

A truly unique opportunity for course-front living at Ipswich Country Club

C.P. Berry Homes has available perhaps the finest course-front lot at the Ipswich Country Club. Located along the 15th fairway, the home will have wide-ranging views of the golf course and scenic pond along the fairway. C.P. Berry has built the majority of the homes within the club. For this lot, we are proposing to offer our Prestwick floor plan. The Prestwick is perfect for the homebuyer who desires the unique features and style of a custom-built home. From the outside, the multiple roof lines, octagonal breakfast nook, large windows, oversized glass sliding doors, full-length, low-maintenance deck and a low-maintenance Enviroshake cedar-style shingled roof make for a spectacular drive-by. Similar to many of the homes at the club by C.P. Berry, the solid mahogany double front doors of the Prestwick open to a stunning great room with built-in bookcases, a marble-faced gas fireplace and 12-foot-high windows. Also on the first floor is a very comfortable master suite with two walk-in closets and a luxuriously appointed master bath. Adjacent to the gourmet kitchen is a cozy octagonal breakfast nook, dining room, laundry room and a powder room. The upper level includes two additional bedrooms and a full bath. The Prestwick offers a total of 4,400 square feet with approximately 3,000 square feet on the first and second floors and an additional 1,400 square feet (or more) available on the lower level, with a walk-out to added outdoor living space. An attached three-car garage with direct access to the pantry and kitchen is included.

The Ipswich Country Club homeowners association includes landscape maintenance, snow-removal services, and more.

The club offers golf, tennis, swimming, fitness, casual and fine dining, a pro shop and a busy calendar of social activities. Work with us in customizing the interior of your home, choosing all interior finish selections and creating the home of your dreams, all on one of the finest lots anywhere within the club.
