The Falls at Gunstock Road: Country living close to the city

---- — Amongst the serene and natural setting of wooded land at the top of Sweet Hill Road in Plaistow, N.H., The Falls at Gunstock Road is now under construction. Set to be the most gorgeous 55+ active-adult community in the region, the foundation for the model home has been poured and framing for the walls has begun.

“I’ve been working on this project for years, so it’s great to finally be building the first home here,” says Ron Brown, owner and developer of The Falls at Gunstock Road. For the past several months the paved road was the only visible aspect of the layout of the community, and local residents have been driving through, eager to see the progress.

The development will consist of 40 custom, luxury, single detached homes, featuring beautiful architectural details and superior craftsmanship.

The 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 granite countertops to the custom cabinets, buyers can pick the colors, materials, and designs.

“Buyers will have the ability to customize all aspects of their home,” notes Brown. “It’s something different from other developments in the area.”

The 50-plus acres of land that The Falls at Gunstock Road is situated on provide privacy for future residents. Breathtaking views are the first thing you’ll notice as you enter the — and on a clear day you can see the distant outline of the New Hampshire Mountains.

The community will consist of the main road and three cul-de-sacs: Blueberry Road, Raspberry Road, and Strawberry Road. Each will feature its namesake fruit growing amidst the homes, adding a unique and tasty twist.

Additionally, there will be a clubhouse within the development, complete with recreational amenities and a swimming pool. There will also be one-and-a-half miles of walking trails and two beautiful waterfalls on the property.

And, like other active adult communities, the maintenance free living will provide peace of mind, but residents are welcome to garden and landscape if they enjoy the pastime.

Located minutes from the shops and restaurants of Route 125, The Falls at Gunstock Road offers the feeling of living in the country, but is conveniently just 40 minutes North of Boston and 25 minutes to the New Hampshire seacoast.

“We’re hoping to have the model home completed soon,” says Brown. “We’ll also be hosting a pre-construction sales event in the coming weeks.”

The model home will serve as the benchmark for interested buyers to see how amazing their new home can be. In the interim, local residents and prospective buyers are encouraged to visit the development and view the progress as construction continues. For more information, call 978-994-2401.
