---- — When you visit The Nevins you’ll find a new neighborhood of Active Adults 55+ that is close to completion, a clubhouse that is unrivaled for its features and community use, and homes that are open with lots of light. It’s the perfect location for people who are looking to downsize.

“Enjoy single-level living in an amazing community with unmatched amenities,” says Realtor John Kalantzakos of Real Estate Results. “Only six llots are left out of the 125 in this very settled, upscale neighborhood and the models homes are now being sold. All are detached homes which are in demand in today’s real estate market.”

Starting at $329,900, six home styles offer 1,567 to 1,966 square feet of living. Standard features include cathedral and tray ceilings, hardwood floors in the kitchen, living and dining rooms, and hallway, tiled bathrooms, a full basement, central air conditioning and an attached two-car garage with an automatic door opener. Many of these features are upgrades at other communities.

A priority has been put on energy costs at the Nevins. The homes are built according to Energy Star specifications, which, combined with one floor living lowers monthly expenses. Natural gas heating and town sewer and water are notable benefits.

“One of the unseen benefits of The Nevins is the people who live here — this is a fantastic and caring community where residents really look out for one another,” Kalantzakos says. “Another top feature is the Nevins Clubhouse, which is first class and truly unique. This is the only 55-plus community in the area with an indoor spa and heated pool for year-round access to exercise and enjoyment.”

Also sharing the 9,200-square-foot clubhouse are the state-of-the-art fitness center, billiards room, granite kitchen, magnificent great room and stadium-seating theater.

“The Nevins residents are active and there are many things to do and events to attend,” Kalantzakos says. “Activities include mahjongg, a book club, water aerobics, men’s and ladies’ poker, movie night, crafts and quilting, cooking classes, happy hour, men’s and ladies coffee, billiards and trivia. The golf league has more than 30 members.

“The Nevins is a Wi-Fi hotspot,” Kalantzakos adds. “Residents visit the clubhouse with their portable computers and take advantage of free, high-speed wireless Internet service. You can stay connected whether you’re relaxing by the pool or lounging in the great room.”

“Choose from six different floor plans and five styles of kitchen cabinets, each with its own character and fine detail. Let our experienced staff help you customize your selections to suit your taste,” said Kalantzakos.

The Nevins homes are built to a high standard of craftsmanship and excellence. In the construction industry since 1956, Gilcrest Realty Holdings 2 developed this fantastic Londonderry community. They provide buyers with the added convenience of using the one-stop design center inside the clubhouse to customize their homes’ interiors.

“Your personalized dream home is completely maintenance free and has its own yard with a sprinkler system,” he added.

The Nevins is ideally located right off Interstate 93 at Exit 4 (13 miles from the MA border). Within a mile are three grocery stores, medical facilities, shopping, movie theaters and lots of restaurants. Londonderry, N.H., is centrally located, with easy access to the White Mountains as well as the seashore and Boston.

Discover the Nevins lifestyle, its quality and community, at the open house held every day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Nevins community is marked with a stone entrance.
