When you decide to buy a luxury home at Black Birch II – the newest active adult community in Concord, you’ll have some decisions to make about the size and floor plan of your new home. As we mentioned in a previous post, Black Birch II has four floor plans and a virtually limitless number of options when it comes to additional space. So how do you determine the right amount of space you’ll need, and which floor plans and optional features will best suit your lifestyle? Let’s take a look at some of the important information you’ll have to consider.
The first factor to consider when selecting the size and layout of your luxury home is how many bedrooms you’ll need. Some of our Black Birch II buyers are retirees who only entertain occasionally but travel frequently to visit family. It makes sense for these buyers to only choose the amount of space they’ll regularly use, since anything additional translates to unnecessary upkeep. With 2 master bedrooms, Carriage House II is a perfect fit for a pair and their occasional overnight guests.
On the other end of the spectrum, some folks looking for an active adult community still need plenty of room for their children and grandchildren to visit. With two generously sized bedrooms and two bathrooms located on the second floor, The Colonial offers plenty of independent space for family, while still giving residents the privacy they need with their first-floor master. The open concept kitchen, family and dining room space is perfect for bringing everyone together for happy hour, to watch the big game, for holiday meals or game nights.
The Patio Home, Carriage House I and Carriage House II have sprawling lower levels that can be customized to add whatever type of space will be most useful and enjoyable for each resident. Though Black Birch II is an age restricted community, meaning one resident of the home must be 55 years or older, children 19 years and older can reside in the home indefinitely. If a resident needs space for a family member or guest to stay for a longer period of time, the lower level can be finished with a third bedroom, full bathroom, and a good-sized living room, giving both guest and resident plenty of space and privacy.
In addition to bedrooms, new residents must also consider the amount of outdoor space they’ll need with their new luxury home. Summer evenings in Concord are lovely, so many residents choose to add on the optional outdoor spaces, while others decide to enhance indoor areas that they’ll use more frequently – wine cellars, theater rooms, wet bars, home office space, etc.
Once residents determine the size, number of bedrooms and preferred layout of their luxury home, there are still some choices to be made about features like shelving, cabinets, benches and fireplaces. Only after the functional decisions are complete will residents choose the finishes, colors and materials to create a truly personalized living space.
Many active adult communities near Boston offer very little, if any options for customization. The developers of Black Birch II understand that while all of our residents are alike in their desire to live in a luxury retirement community in Concord, they are unique in their personality, requirements, interests and lifestyle.
