A Look at Our Two Available Needham Area Communities

Our two newest communities, Hatherly Rise at the Pinehills in Plymouth, and The Lanterns at Warren Woods in Ashland, are currently 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. We offer our Portico homes in one or two story designs to match your needs and way of life. 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. Our homes invite in plenty of natural light thanks to the right amount of windows and open space.

Our Portico homes are townhouses from 1,500 to 1,900 square feet with front porches that overlook a garden area and white picket fence. Their smaller size is deceiving; like the Fresco models, these homes feature tons 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

Lanterns Woods homes give you a choice of a one or two-story floor plan to you can pick the right home that matches your lifestyle and tastes.
