---- — Set to be the most stunning 55-plus, active-adult community in the region, The Falls at Gunstock Road is well underway. The first new home is up, the gorgeous red siding is being added, the front stonework is taking shape, and now work is being done to complete the beautiful back deck and lovely interior.
Nestled amongst the serene and natural setting of wooded land at the top of Sweet Hill Road in income-tax-free Plaistow, N.H., The Falls at Gunstock Road sits on 50-plus acres of land providing beauty and privacy for future residents. Breathtaking views are the first thing you’ll notice as you enter the community — and on a clear day you can see the distant outline of the New Hampshire mountains.
“I’ve been working on this project for years, so it’s great to be finishing up the first home,” says Ron Brown, owner and developer of The Falls at Gunstock Road. “We have had many people driving by excited to see the progress. We expect to begin sales in October and are looking forward to working with buyers to customize all aspects of their dream home.”
Once completed the new neighborhood will consist of 40 custom, luxury, single detached homes, featuring beautiful architectural details and superior craftsmanship in an amazing setting.
The luxurious living space of each home will range from 1,500 to 1,800 square feet. With a mix of contemporary and craftsman aesthetics, the homes will offer two bedrooms, two full bathrooms or two and a half bathrooms and two- or three-car garages. Each home can also be personalized; from the gorgeous granite countertops to the custom cabinets, buyers can choose the colors, materials and designs that best fit their style.
“It’s very different from other developments in the area. The community will consist of the main road and three cul-de-sacs: Blueberry Road, Raspberry Road, and Strawberry Road,” notes Brown. “
Each will feature its namesake fruit growing amidst the homes, along with professional landscaping, adding a unique and tasty twist.
Additionally, there will be a community clubhouse within the development, complete with recreational amenities and a swimming pool. There will also be two beautiful waterfalls on the property and a mile and a half of walking trails so residents can enjoy the natural beauty of the neighborhood.
And, like other active adult communities, the maintenance-free living will provide peace of mind. But residents will be welcome to garden and landscape if they enjoy the pastime.
Located just minutes from sales-tax-free shopping and a wide variety of restaurants along Route 125, The Falls at Gunstock Road offers the feeling of living in the country, but it’s close to all conveniences, including several area medical centers and cultural attractions, and it is just 40 minutes north of Boston and 25 minutes west of the New Hampshire seacoast.
“The model home is rapidly being completed,” says Brown. “Look for a pre-construction sales event very soon.”
The model home will serve as the benchmark for interested buyers to see how amazing their new home and lifestyle can be. In the interim, local residents and prospective buyers are encouraged to visit the community and view the progress as construction continues. For more information, call 978-994-2401.
