  • The project was designed to meet the needs of 55+ buyers seeking to downsize from single family homes. The 8-unit buildings consist of four unit types.  Each unit has its own private exterior main entry and private one or two car garages.
  • The homes feature high ceilings and large windows to take advantage of the views atop Hathorne Hill.  All units have private garages with interior unit entries and staggered outdoor decks/patios giving each home privacy.  All were designed with main floor master bedroom suites and the townhouse units have the option of a second floor master suite as well.
  • Units feature many desirable elements including gourmet kitchens with islands open into large great rooms offering maximum flexibility for living and dining.  Master bathroom features an oversized shower with bench seat for safety and livability.  We incorporated generous storage on living levels, minimizing the need for trips up and down stairs, reducing falling risk and preventing issues for owners with limited mobility. Multiple, pre-selected standard finish packages included gas fireplace with marble surround, chair rail and crown molding, kitchen cabinet styles and color, hardwood flooring, granite islands, pendant lighting, and ceiling fans, created to give prospective buyers the opportunity to customize the finishes to their personal taste and style.
