Del Webb Chauncy Lake, a new active adult community in the Boston area, is hosting a grand opening in February. Del Webb announced the new development of condominium homes in 2018, and prospective homebuyers can now request more information and tour the community.
Located in Westborough, Massachusetts, Del Webb Chauncy Lake is one of about twenty age-restricted communities in Boston’s western suburbs. The Worchester Business Journal reports that with an expected 700 homes upon completion, Chauncy Lake will be the largest new 55+ community in Central Massachusetts.
Designed With Active Adults in Mind
Del Webb Chauncy Lake is one of ten new communities the developer announced last year. The division of PulteGroup focuses on building age-restricted communities and designing homes with younger baby boomers and older GenX homebuyers in mind.
For Del Webb Chauncy Lake, that means the condominium homes range from 945 to just under 1,500 square feet with one to two bedrooms and one to two bathrooms. Even the most compact layouts include open floor plans for entertaining, en-suite master baths, spacious bedrooms, hardwood floors, and balconies.
Residents also don’t need to worry about building maintenance. Each of the condominium buildings will have secure entry and a covered garage. The condos start in the low $300s, and in August 2019, the Community Advocate reported that the first building was already 65 percent sold.
A Scenic Property for an Active Lifestyle
The 14 condominium buildings are being built on the scenic grounds of the former Westborough State Hospital. The 38-acre property includes walking and biking trails as well as plenty of trees and open space.
The community borders Chauncy Lake, and Del Webb plans to build a clubhouse with a fitness center and meeting rooms. The community’s full-time events planner will facilitate clubs, classes, special events, and other activities for residents. For many active adults, this built-in social aspect is very attractive. In addition to planned activities, residents will be able to enjoy an outdoor pool and patio, tennis courts, bocce ball courts, and pickleball courts.
Although the development itself is quiet and set between a lake and preserved natural areas, residents will still have easy access to Westborough. The area around the Westborough Shopping Center includes fast-casual restaurants, big box stores, grocery stores, and restaurants. On the historic main street in town, residents will find coffee shops, restaurants, cafes, shops, and boutiques. Also, Westborough’s commuter rail station makes a trip to Boston or Worchester simple.
