FAQs About Community Living

Benefits of Living In a 55+ Community in the Dover, MA, Area

senior living community meaning in Dover MAEven though each of our neighborhoods have their own architectural design and look, all Green Company communities share the same features. Our homes are designed to invite in a lot of natural light and provide open space to move around in. We build communities on elevated ground to reduce the risk of flooding from heavy rainfall, and we look for bucolic settings such as surrounding woodland views, natural bodies of water, and sprawling golf courses.

Many of our communities offer walking and biking trails for our active residents. Our residents enjoy using their community’s pool, tennis courts, and other features that can include an on-site post office for convenience. Our expertise ranges from building communities of all sizes ranging from five houses to 550 townhouses.

Serenity is another quality our neighborhoods share. We choose parcels of lands far enough from main roadways so that they’ll provide quiet living for all residents.

Our homes are built to last because we incorporate innovative construction materials and the latest appliances. Who likes shoveling snow? We look after that for you, as well as general landscaping. The Green Company allows residents to focus on what matters– their families, friends, and enjoying a quality home life– instead of worrying about home repair and lawn care.

Choose Between Two Available Communities

Our two newest communities, Hatherly Rise at the Pinehills in Plymouth, and The Lanterns at Warren Woods in Ashland, are presently accepting new residents. Here’s what’s unique about each of them:

Inhabitants of our Hatherly Rise community have their choice of seven floorplans in our Fresco and Portico home models.

Our Fresco homes, inspired by California style, range from 1,600 to 2,200 square feet. Portico models are available in 1 or 2 story living plans. No matter which size you choose, you’ll find a cozy farmer’s porch in the front and a private rear courtyard for entertaining or kicking back with family and friends. Enjoy plenty of natural light streaming into your home thanks to a multitude of windows and the open space floor plan.

Our Portico townhouses give you up to 1,900 square feet of living space in addition to a front porch facing your garden area and white picket fence. Their smaller size is deceiving; like the Fresco models, these homes feature plenty of storage, an open floor plan, and extra living space perfect for a guest bedroom, entertainment area, or home study.

The Lanterns at Warren Woods

This neighborhood provides its residents their own country style meeting house, swimming pool, and miles of walking trails right alongside the Ashland Reservoir and Warren Woods. Our homes here offer one and two-story floor plans, giving you flexibility to choose the right dwelling for your lifestyle and tastes. Homes at The Lanterns share a comparable design with Hatherly Rise homes in that they offer homeowners roomy space to turn into a guest bedroom or entertaining area, and a relaxing front porch.

Several of our homes at Hatherly Rise and The Lanterns are available in move-in condition. All that’s needed is you and your belongings!

Dover Area Customizable Homes

Although we’re focused on building communities for active adults, we realize that not everyone wants a cookie cutter home. All forthcoming homeowners are encouraged to visit our design studio for the opportunity to add your finishing touches to your home yours. You have your choice of your cabinets, hardwood flooring, fixtures, countertops, and more.
