Edgewater Preserve is a new neighborhood for active adults, where one member of the household is over 55 years of age. The location, Back Ashuelot Road in Winchester, NH, is ideal for this kind of a community with hiking, fishing and canoeing right in its own backyard, yet still being within walking distance of the conveniences of town. This will be a community of "garden homes". The definition of a garden home is a "free standing home on it's own small lot". The entire home is completely owned by the homeowner, as well as the plot of land it sits on. The roadway and the conservation land is owned and governed by a Home Owners Association, made up of all homeowners.
During every phase of the entire project, from site planning through the home building process, we are striving to meet or exceed the strict guidelines of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Green Building Program. Build Green NH will provide verification and certification services. Our goal is for the entire development to be an NAHB Certified Green Home Neighborhood we can all be proud of. The development consists of 6.64 acres of land that is subdivided into eight residential lots, each approximately one quarter acre in size, situated on either side of a new private dead-end road. The remainder of the acreage is deeded conservation land.
The homes, each one custom designed by Kathy Beaman, CKD, AKBD, CGP, and custom built by Beaman Land & Home Sales, Inc. will be of "hybrid home construction". This is a blending of traditional site-built craftsmanship with modular built home components. It is the smart way to build. We design and engineer our new home to be largely built in a controlled environment, out of the snow and the rain and the mud. We use custom craftsmanship to build in the highest quality finishes. This was the start of our "jewel box" concept.
