---- — Little Mill Woods in Sandown, N.H., is a wonderful new community for active adults age 55 and older who have earned a carefree lifestyle. The tranquil neighborhood nestled among the tall trees and woodlands offers attractive new homes with exceptional styling at an incredible value, starting at just $169,900.

What is really appealing about Little Mill Woods is how the community has a peaceful rural feel, yet is only minutes away from great shopping, dining, medical care and entertainment.

Sandown is a classic New England community, and the lovely neighborhood is well established with only three of the 38 homes still available. A beautiful new building is now completed and ready for quick move-in. The spacious end unit in this new building is now the model and open for viewing.

Little Mill Woods homes offer fresh new designs, including single-floor living. Builder Dean Howard has decades of experience and a proud history of building quality homes and neighborhoods throughout Southern New Hampshire. A local builder, Howard is involved in the day-to-day operations, which allows him to continue his family tradition of quality workmanship and customer service.

Each of the home designs is well planned and features fine details that translate into a comfortable lifestyle. The Stearns model is marvelous, with an open floor plan and either a one- or two-car garage, a real bonus during the winter.

From the outside, all of the homes have great styling with a New England architectural flair and attractive maintenance-free materials. Homeowners enjoy the feel of an individual home, but do not need to worry about upkeep. The professional, colorful landscaping is cared for by the maintenance crew, and in the winter each driveway is cleared. There is even shoveling right to the front door. Homeowners enjoy their scenic setting with no yard work or shoveling headaches.

Entering The Stearns end-unit model, you are instantly impressed with the floor plan and especially the gorgeous living room anchored by a fabulous corner gas log fireplace that adds warmth and beauty to the spacious room. The screened-in porch on the end units is just right for relishing those warm summer or early fall evenings. The new home has been designed for easy single-level living with interesting architectural elements that include a vaulted entryway. This model with a railing along the foyer also has an exceptionally open, airy feel.

The lovely home features an appealing and perfectly planned kitchen offering handsome hardwood cabinets, state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances and exceptional storage. The workspace is so efficiently laid out, it would please any cook.

The fantastic floor plan has the kitchen wide open to the dinning room. This gives great views and makes entertaining or conversation a breeze. A nice private deck is perfect for casual dining or just relaxing in the shade of the tall trees that border the homes. It is an amazing spot to enjoy the natural beauty of Southern New Hampshire, especially the vibrant colors of autumn.

The end unit has gleaming hardwood floors in the dining room, living room and entry. The bedrooms offer the pleasure of cozy carpeting.

The interior homes have an attractive powder room half-bath and a full bath. The spacious master bedroom suite, in the end units, accommodates most bedroom furniture, features a walk-in closet and second full bath with a double-sink vanity. The second bedroom would make an outstanding guest room or home office.

All of the homes have outstanding amenities, including central air conditioning, efficient gas heat, 200 amp electrical services, automatic garage doors and generous storage, and they are prewired for cable television and phone service.

Little Mill Woods is a true community, with its own clubhouse for entertaining family and friends. Located on 21 lush acres, this is an active and welcoming community where neighbors enjoy strolling along the winding roads and stop to chat with one another. For added outdoor fun there is a horseshoe court and bocce ball court. The clubhouse is available for community social events, and the homeowners take great pride in their community and love to boast about its quality of life and value to visitors.
