Low-main­te­nance liv­ing at 55-plus Wat­son Run

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - REAL ESTATE -

Nes­tled amid the rolling farm­land in the heart of Penn­syl­va­nia Dutch Coun­try, Wat­son Run per­fectly blends peace­ful ru­ral liv­ing with prox­im­ity to some of the county’s best shop­ping and at­trac­tions.

Lo­cated off Route 772 in Gor­donville, Lea­cock Town­ship, the 55-plus com­mu­nity by Berks Homes of­fers low-main­te­nance liv­ing that gives res­i­dents more time to do what they re­ally en­joy — whether it is tak­ing ad­van­tage of the com­mu­nity’s club­house and walk­ing paths, vis­it­ing nearby Kitchen Ket­tle Vil­lage, shop­ping the out­lets or en­joy­ing a show at one of the en­ter­tain­ment venues on Route 30.

Wat­son Run’s seven open floor plans, in­clud­ing a two-story op­tion, range in size from 1,348 square feet to 2,471 square feet and come in a va­ri­ety of el­e­va­tions. All have first-floor mas­ter suites. Prices start in the mid-$200s.

Stan­dard home fea­tures in­clude a com­bi­na­tion of vinyl sid­ing and stone, stucco or brick front per de­sign, two-car garage, dou­ble-hung low-E win­dows, and pro­fes­sion­ally land­scaped front yards.

In­te­ri­ors at Wat­son Run in­clude 9-foot first­floor ceil­ings in some mod­els and en­gi­neered hard­wood floor­ing in foy­ers. Spa­cious kitchens fea­ture a choice of raised- or re­cessed-panel cab­i­nets with se­lect stains and fin­ishes, en­er­gy­ef­fi­cient gas range, dish­washer and mi­crowave, and garbage dis­posal.

A home­owner’s as­so­ci­a­tion fee cov­ers use of the club­house, which in­cludes a heated out­door pool, fit­ness cen­ter and kitchen. The fee also cov­ers main­te­nance of com­mu­nity walk­ing trails, lawn and land­scap­ing main­te­nance, snow clear­ing on drive­ways and side­walks, trash re­moval and re­cy­cling. The as­so­ci­a­tion dis­trib­utes a com­mu­nity news­let­ter to keep res­i­dents in­formed and en­gaged with tips, area info, hu­mor and the many ac­tiv­i­ties sched­uled through­out the year such as trips, monthly break­fasts, a Bingo night, Valen­tine’s Day event and a Christ­mas House Tour.

Cur­rently, Wat­son Run has nearly 30 home sites avail­able, with an­other 30 com­ing in a fu­ture phase. The com­mu­nity will have 178 sin­gle-fam­ily homes when com­plete.

Founded in 1973, Berks Homes cur­rently has 20 com­mu­ni­ties in east­ern/cen­tral Penn­syl­va­nia and Delaware ap­peal­ing to a wide range of de­mo­graph­ics, from first-time home­buy­ers to ac­tive adult buy­ers. The most en­joy­able part of the buy­ing process hap­pens in the 5,000-square-foot Se­lec­tion Gallery where con­sul­tants guide new home­buy­ers through the vast ar­ray of prod­uct op­tions with which to per­son­al­ize their new homes.
