The Summer Hill development goes above and beyond the typical New England neighborhood, with unique and individual cottages for year-round living. Just off Magnolia Beach and the Coolidge Reservation, this community is a wonderful collection of 12 homes in a picturesque area.

Windover Construction is the first builder to take advantage of the Cluster Zoning Ordinance in the Manchester by the Sea area. With this approach, the Summer Hill community has fourteen acres of trust, while only three are built on, providing a great amount of open space.

The community is designed with cost-cutting features as well, including a neighborhood association to take care of upkeep, and environmentally friendly attributes like rain gardens to collect water.

Each home has an inviting front porch, leading into a beautiful cottage-style home with an exceptional amount of space. “The open living design is really popular right now, with today’s buyers looking for the ease of that configuration,” says J. Barrett & Company, LLC listing agent Sandy Carpentier.

This cluster of homes goes far beyond the cookie-cutter of many developments. “What’s really nice is the variation between the houses,” says Carpentier. Though the neighborhood was constructed so that the homes were related, each are still different with their own unique features and architectural details.

One of the highlights of this particular home is the spacious back porch, which overlooks Clark Pond. The master suite also has a balcony looking out over the pond, perfect for enjoying the beautiful sunset.

There will be an open house every Sunday through the end of June from 1 to 4 p.m.  For more information contact Sandy Carpentier, JBarrett & Company at 978-381-0123.
