Harvest Estates, a welcoming neighborhood to call home

Open House today, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Welcome home.

That is the simple and honest impression a visitor gets driving into Harvest Estates,an attractive new neighborhood in a rural corner of Derry. Set against a stunning backdrop of mountain vistas and colorful woodlands, the gorgeous new homes on 3-acre lots, starting at just $360,000, are a sweet treat in this impressive location. Whether it is an evening stroll along the meandering road, the ability to walk to the elementary school or catching fireflies in the large back yard on a summer’s eve, this multi-generational neighborhood is place to call home.

There are six appealing home designs to choose from and the builder is open to working with buyers to personalize their new home. The quality of construction and variety of styles is remarkable as the local builder has extremely high standards and has included many high-end options as standard features. All the homes have carefree siding, 9-foot ceilings, hardwood and tile floors, granite countertops, crown molding, dual heating and cooling systems and generous allowances for appliances.

Touring the model homes is an enlightening experience as each one offers an exceptional design. The current model has great personality with an inviting farmer’s porch, craftsman style columns and a variety of windows that create great visual texture. Stepping inside the beautiful front door, it is quickly evident that this is no cookie cutter home. The spacious front entry has sight line right out to the picturesque backyard. The high ceilings, large windows, hardwood floors and wide opening between rooms maximize the natural light and give the home a fresh open feel. The clean lines and openness of the home are wonderfully balanced by handsome details like crown molding, wainscoting and interior columns.

On one side is an astounding front-to-back living room that offers great flexibility. It could be used as one large room or visually divided. The spacious eat-in kitchen is a sunny delight with double doors out to the large deck. It is well planned with exceptional workspace, extensive storage, a breakfast bar and a large dining area for family meals. The deck, right off the kitchen area, is perfect for gas grill cooking and outdoor dining.
