'Great homes and a rare find at this price in North Andover'

Coming soon! Are you looking for a comfortable home in a well-regarded school district with a small town lifestyle? Welcome to North Andover, selected by Money Magazine as the “Fifth Best Community to Live in on the East Coast.”

Currently under construction at 305, 315, and 325 Abbott Street in North Andover are three contemporary-style homes on tree-lined lots across from the Annie Sargent Elementary School. Close to public transportation and highway access, these homes offer the best of both worlds: small town lifestyle with easy access to all amenities.

“These are great homes and a rare find at this price in North Andover,” Realtor Connie Doto says.

Each home is between 2,700 and 3,000 square feet, with four bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms. The exterior uses cement board siding, which means less maintenance by the homeowner.

The open floor plans feature eat-in kitchens with cherry cabinets, granite countertops and access to an entertainment deck, and an open concept great room with gas fireplace and hardwood floors.

The large master bedrooms feature walk-in closets, plush carpeting, and full en-suite bathrooms with ceramic tile and marble finishings.

Laundry facilities are conveniently located on the first floor.

Recessed lighting and skylights make these homes bright and cheerful. Two of the homes feature a bonus room with plush carpet, vaulted ceilings and skylights, perfect for a home theater, home office or play space.

Built on one-half to one-and-a-half acre lots, these homes guarantee privacy and room to roam.

The builder has more than 20 years of experience building custom homes throughout the North Shore.

Live here, and you’ll be within walking distance to the historic town center and the bounty of shopping, dining and recreational facilities that characterize the area, including Lake Cochichewick for boating and Steven’s Pond for swimming. Nearby Weir Hill offers well-maintained trails for walking, biking and stellar views of the surrounding area. Harold Parker State Forest offers 25 miles of trails and facilities for horseback riding, camping, fishing, hunting, mountain biking and hiking. Boxford State Forest is also located in town.
