"You snooze…you lose!"

---- — There has never been a better time to buy a new home at Ocean Meadow at West Newbury, with 10 new sales so far in 2013. Starting at just $529,900 you can own a maintenance-free luxury home in the final phase of Massachusetts’ best 55-plus community.

“We are proud to share that we are almost officially sold out, with only five spectacular homes remaining,” said Ericka Pace, portfolio manager for Ocean Meadow. “The neighborhood is now over 90 percent sold and we have just moved into our new designer Caiden-style model home to position the selling of our final homes.”

Selling more than luxury townhomes, Ocean Meadow offers close proximity to the beach and downtown Newburyport; perfect for shopping, dining and sightseeing, just 5 miles away. The community was designed for active adults 55 or better looking to enjoy their free time, instead of dealing with the everyday upkeep that comes with owning a single-family home.

Ocean Meadow is built to the highest level of quality and finishes. “When it comes to craftsmanship and creativity, Ocean Meadow has it all!” said Pace. “Ocean Meadow is known for the ability to personalize each home, and builder Stephen J. Gillis is always coming up with fresh ideas to make each home unique.”

Currently the community has only five homes remaining, four of which are in the coveted Builder’s Reserve area. The Builder’s Reserve, Ocean Meadow’s final phase, offers premium locations nestled within the privacy and serenity of the woodlands, and has easy access to the community garden and onsite walking trails.

“Our final homes can be ready within 30 to 180 days, and will be designed with a buyer’s tastes in mind; incorporating many of our desired signature enhancements,” Pace continued. “All five homes currently have the option to incorporate our Morning Room, the most popular enhancement, to take advantage of the spectacular sun exposure.”

As Pace shared, “The final homes, ranging in size from 2,400 to 4,000 square feet, are a tremendous value, and will simply not last long. Our new motto is ‘you snooze, you lose.’ With inventory down and housing prices up, now is the time for buyers to list their departure residence and take advantage of our no-risk Home Sale Contingency program. Two of our most recent buyers secured their Ocean Meadow home using this program and received accepted offers in less than 30 days! It has been great to see buyers getting traction on their departure residence, and our team is ready to facilitate a seamless transition to a new lifestyle for these buyers.”

What better way to see the quality and value at Ocean Meadow than to tour the new designer model home and preview remaining home sites. “If you are in the market for a luxury dream home in a maintenance-free adult community, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for,” Pace said.

Stop by and preview the new model home before it sells again, every Thursday through Monday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Find the entrance to Ocean Meadow at 823 Main St. in West Newbury.
