---- — If you’re looking for a maintenance-free lifestyle complete with fairway views, stunning interiors and the opportunity to hang up that snow shovel for good, look no further than The Meadows at Topsfield. Developed by New Meadows Development LLC and headed by Thomas Schank, Michelle Schank and Jeffrey Garber, that which started as a dream of the ideal 55+ adult community has now become a reality. This active complex of 24 townhouses framed by New Meadow Golf Course is entering its final phase, presenting six new luxury homes for sale. The homes are still under construction and awaiting modifications, but the time to act is now, according to co-listing agent Anne Leblanc-Snyder of J Barrett & Company.
“These unfinished units are just now coming on line, and while every one of the homes here feature high-end details and unsurpassed craftsmanship, buyers have the opportunity to really customize and make it their own,” she says. “Whether you like a traditional design, an ultra-modern feel or the charm of an antique farmhouse, the interior design of the units will accommodate any style.”
Each home, classically New England on the outside with front and rear covered porches, dormers and detailed trims, boasts stunning interiors with high ceilings, extraordinary millwork, gleaming hardwood and thoughtfully flexible floor plans. Central to the main living area, the well-appointed kitchens are sensibly designed with easy entertaining in mind. Flowing effortlessly into the living and dining rooms, each is to feature the buyer’s choice of custom-designed cabinetry by Russo’s of Middleton, granite countertops, smudge-proof stainless-steel Frigidaire Gallery appliances and full-sized pantries. Sharing this level is a master bedroom suite complete with a sumptuous master bath with a walk-in shower, jetted tub, custom vanities and ceramic tile flooring.
A generous loft area above provides the perfect space for an in-home office or quiet reading nook, while a second bedroom with full bath provides extra room for house guests. Rounding off this upper floor is a spacious bonus room, open to the buyer’s interpretation.
“This area might serve well as an artist’s studio, a media room or even a man-cave,” says Leblanc-Snyder. “The structure of these rooms truly defines the architecture.”
The units range in size from 2,600 to 2,700 square feet, and buyers have the option of choosing a unit with a four-season sunroom. Additional amenities in each unit include convenient first-floor laundries, gas fireplaces and attached two-car garages.
Conveniently located off Route 1, The Meadows at Topsfield is convenient to Boston and the neighboring North Shore and Merrimack Valley.
Leblanc-Snyder and co-listing agent Alle Cutler will be hosting a cocktail party on March 13 from 4 to 7 p.m. in celebration of The Meadows’ grand launch of the final phase. All those interested in learning more about Topsfield’s newest 55+ community, where prices range from $569,900 to $659,000, are invited.
“All of the spaces throughout these homes are vibrant and exciting with soaring cathedral ceilings and fabulous views. The homes are stunning and not easily described. You really must see The Meadows at Topsfield for yourself.”
