Del Webb Chauncy Lake in Westborough, Massachusetts is expected to open by the end of the year.

Active adults looking for a home in the western suburbs of Boston have a new option to consider: Del Webb Chauncy Lake. Del Webb announced the construction of the age-restricted condominiums in 2018, with the first building to be completed by the end of 2019.

Homes

When complete, Chauncy Lake will feature 700 homes for residents over 55, spread across multiple condominium buildings. Each building is four stories tall with elevator access and underground parking. The seven home designs range from 945 to 1,469 square feet with one to two bedrooms, one to two bathrooms, and private balconies. The master bedrooms include en suite bathrooms and walk-in closets.

These homes also present an ideal opportunity for prospective homebuyers who want to customize their living space. Homeowners can choose flooring, cabinet, and countertops. Residents can also share their home with up to two pets—no restrictions on breed or size. 

Homes list from the low $300s to the low $400s, and each building will have 50 homes. Community Advocate reported in August that 65% of homes in the first building have been sold.

Lifestyle

The location and lifestyle of Del Webb Chauncy Lake relate to one another. The homes lend themselves to homebuyers who want a smaller space with little maintenance. This allows homeowners to enjoy what both the community and the area have to offer. Rather than downsizing, Del Webb’s sales manager Melanie Chatterton says, “Our mantra is really all about reinvesting in yourself and right-sizing for the life you now want to lead.”

The condo buildings will center around the Lakeside Club, a resort-style clubhouse for residents. Here, game rooms, craft studios, and multipurpose rooms offer residents opportunities to enjoy hobbies, meet neighbors, or participate in activities planned by the full-time activities director. Residents can also stay active in the fitness center, in the heated outdoor pool, or on the tennis and pickleball courts.

Location

Chatterton also sees the appeal of the homes for snowbirds, who may want to be close to friends and family in the Massachusetts area during the summer and travel during the winter. On the grounds of the community, residents can enjoy a picnic area, three gazebos, and walking trails. The community overlooks Chauncy Lake, which offers swimming, boating, and fishing. Right next to Chauncy Lake, residents can enjoy the trails of the Crane Swamp Nature Preserve. The scenic location next to Chauncy Lake provides residents with respite and quiet. However, residents are also close to many amenities, including restaurants, movie theaters, and big box stores.

The 55+ community is located in Westborough, Massachusetts near I-495, about 45 minutes from Boston and 25 minutes from Worcester. The location also allows residents who want to travel easy access to major interstates, the Worcester Regional Airport, Logan International Airport, the Westborough commuter rail station, and Worcester’s Amtrak station.
