---- — With only one home left for sale at The Villages at Windham Meadows, now is the time for the discerning buyer to make their move. The Villages is a subdivision of 58 distinguished single-family homes, offering creativity, affordability, and quality construction. Beautifully appointed one- and two-story homes boasting up to 2,600 square feet of living space offer lofts, studies, sunrooms, first floor master suites, and two-stall garages.

The unique aspect of this neighborhood is that it offers a maintenance free lifestyle with no age restriction. For a low monthly fee, residents have the freedom to come and go as they please without ever having to worry about mowing their lawn or shoveling snow. Furthermore, residents still have the ability to make their outdoor space uniquely their own.

“I have seen residents here planting their own vegetable gardens, putting up gazebos, enjoying time around their own fire pit, and some have even extended their patios.” said listing agent Jill O’Shaughnessy of Coco, Early, & Associates. She adds, “All of these things are done with association approval, but these are the freedoms that you just don’t see in other condo developments.”

It comes as no surprise to O’Shaughnessy that all but one of 58 homes has sold at The Villages in only three years, which is “unheard of in today’s market.” She believes that what has made this development so popular and why it has sold out so fast is the flexibility and workmanship of builder Eric Nickerson.

“The builder has worked so hard to make the inside of each home unique to its owner. There is real custom work in each home, including built-in bookshelves, benches, window seats, and crown moldings. These are not your standard builder homes.”

Eric Nickerson has been a builder in Windham for 18 years, specializing in the design and construction of unique custom homes. His reputation has carved a significant market share of high-end and new construction developments in Windham — with 75 percent of his customer base generated from referrals. He has used his experience and goal of customer satisfaction to develop this neighborhood of single family detached condominiums.

The last home left at The Villages is packed with upgrades and custom workmanship. It offers 2,040 square feet of living space, two and a half bathrooms, and a two stall garage. Additionally, it boasts an oversized kitchen with granite, and a great room with a gas fireplace surrounded by a custom mantle. There is also a study, dining room, and two generously sized bedrooms. Harwood flooring, moldings, and built-ins add an elegant touch. Furthermore, it is set among other beautifully built homes with professional landscaping in a neighborhood reminiscent of a scene pulled out of a movie.

“I have many people comment on it as looking like Pleasantville or Wisteria Lane,” said O’Shaughnessy.

The public is invited to an open house this Sunday, September 9th from noon to 4 p.m.

“This is the very last opportunity for buyers to get into this great neighborhood of beautifully constructed homes. I urge them not to wait and to come by this Sunday and take a look.”
