Stone Castle Estates
Condos are a great living option in general, but recently, this type of housing has become even more popular with senior citizens. Stone Castle Estates is a gated condo community in Methuen that is designed for residents over the age of 55. The beautifully landscaped property is designed to be maintenance-free so that residents can enjoy their retirement instead of tending to lawn care, snow removal, and other home maintenance needs.
In the community, there are plenty of shopping opportunities, but if residents prefer to travel to Boston for more options, I-93 is located right near the community. Taking this route to the city will only take about 30 minutes, so a day trip is more than feasible. For residents who like to ski, there are a few slopes in the area worth checking out. Summer fun in the community included visiting the golf courses in the area as well as the parks. Tenney Castle and Greycourt State Park are both located in the area and provide plenty of hiking trails and scenic views for residents to enjoy.
When it comes to community amenities, this community has quite a bit to offer. There is a 7,000 square foot clubhouse that is designed for residents to enjoy. Events such as game night and book club are held here as well, which allows residents to enjoy common interests together. In this space, there is a kitchen that residents can use as well. There is also a patio space outside for residents to enjoy when the weather permits. For residents who like to work out and tone their muscles, there is a fitness room on the property as well.
Being that this property was built in 2005, the individual units are designed with a spacious, open floor plan, and the fixtures inside the home are quite luxurious. Units are designed as either two- or three-bedroom models that vary in size from about 1,800 to 2,700 square feet. Most of the condos here also have at least two bathrooms for the convenience of the residents as well as a two car garage so that parking on the street is never a consideration.
The beauty of these condos begins on the exterior of the home; the stone front is quite welcoming, and the backyard has a patio that provides residents with a bit of private outdoor space to call their own. These condos can have either a single-floor design or a two-floor design, but either way, these condos have quite a bit to offer. The living room is quite expansive with large windows to let the light in and a gas fireplace to help create an atmosphere in the home. The main living space even has cathedral ceilings to create a more spacious feel.
The kitchens are gourmet kitchens that have quite a bit of space to prepare food. They are equipped with stainless steel appliances, and there is even a formal dining space in the condo. The granite countertops in the home are also quite elegant, especially in the condos that have a breakfast nook. In addition, each of these homes has a finished basement that provides more space to entertain.
The bedrooms are all quite spacious with a lot of closet space, and the master bedrooms can even have a walk-in closet to provide more storage space. Each condo has a laundry room as well so that the tenants can wash and dry their clothes at their leisure.
