---- — Sorrento Farms, Methuen

Only 3 Lots Left

Awash in natural light, the dreamy new three-and-four bedrooms homes at Sorrento Farms in Methuen offer gleaming hardwood floors, granite counters, a gas-log fireplace, an attached two-car garage and just about every amenity imaginable starting at just $399,900. With record low interest rates, now is the time to grab one of the remaining lots and work with DC Development Group to design a dream house before they are gone.

The housing marketplace is seeing greater demand for new homes and that is clearly the case at Sorrento Farms where the models homes and available lots have been rapidly scooped up by buyers that love the quiet neighborhood, spacious homes, quality construction and the ability to work with the builder to customize a dream home. The 31 new homes, part of a well-established neighborhood, have sold so quickly that only one model and a handful of customizable lots remain.

The model home is a delightful contemporary with fine attention to detail and some classic elements that add a touch of elegance. It offers great curb appeal with an array of large windows including eye-catching arched Palladian windows on the second floor. Each home in Sorrento Farms is unique giving the neighborhood great visual appeal.

The mahogany farmer’s porch welcomes visitor and paneled front door with a sidelight and transom showcases the builder’s keen sense of design and attention to detail. Entering, a visitor immediately is impressed with the two-story foyer with balcony, gleaming hardwood floors and large window that bathes the home in warm sunlight. The family room is wide open to the eat-in kitchen. A gas-log fireplace framed by windows that overlook the back yard anchor the spacious room. Designed for a contemporary lifestyle, the family room is wide open to the eat-in kitchen and a set of double glass doors links the two rooms to the back deck.

The kitchen features fine wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite counters and a wide opening to the dining room. With recessed lights, nine-foot ceilings and multiple windows, this is a wonderful floor plan that works seamlessly for formal entertaining in the dining room, casual meals on the deck or backyard cookouts for a family and friends. A handy first-floor powder room completes the first floor.

Up the hardwood staircase are four bedrooms including a spectacular master bedroom suite. The master suite is breathtaking with vaulted ceilings, graceful arched Palladian window, walk-in closet and beautiful en-suite bath. The attractive suite is large without being overwhelming. The tiled master bath is a private oasis with a soaking tub, double granite-top vanity, separate shower and water closet behind a door for added privacy.

The other three bedrooms are all carpeted for cozy comfort and offer excellent natural light and good closet space. They share full bath with yet another granite-topped vanity.

A neat feature is the convenient laundry room on the bedroom level. This is a real room, not a closet. It offers a full-size window, excellent storage space and adjacent linen closet.

With plenty of room for a growing family, the model home has a full basement that could be finished for additional living space or simply used for storage. The two-car attached garage is a welcome element, especially in the winter. There is also additional off-street parking for two cars.

The remarkable amenities abound in these new homes and they include carefree siding, hardwood floors on the first level, central air conditioning, high-efficiency gas heat, gas cooking, public water, public sewer, underground utilities and all the intangible benefits and peace-of-mind that comes with brand-new quality construction.

Marketed by Constance Doto of the Connie Doto Realty Group starting at $399,900, this attractive cul-de-sac neighborhood is close to major commuter routes, schools, shopping, restaurants and medical facilities. To fully appreciate the design, fine details and amenities of these new homes, they need to be seen in person. There is an Open House every Sunday from noon to 2 p.m. at the model off Sorrento Drive in Methuen.
