If you are looking for an atmosphere of camaraderie and social engagement combined with 450 acres of New England scenic countryside and trails, then The Overlook located in Charlton, MA, may be right for you. One of the region’s finest retirement communities, The Overlook offers a multitude of residence options for an active, independent lifestyle. One of The Overlook’s 20 floor plans is the Hawthorne apartment home, a distinctive, yet functional layout that meets any discerning taste. Like The Overlook’s other apartment homes, the Hawthorne is located at the heart of campus and just steps away from dining venues, a performing arts center, indoor pool and many more amenities. The Hawthorne apartment home: Suited for your taste The two-bedroom Hawthorne is designed to provide the style and space for including all your furnishings, displaying your personal treasures and living life to the fullest. At well over 1,100 square feet, this apartment home features two bedrooms, a combination living and dining room, two full baths and a galley-style kitchen with a breakfast nook that leads to an outdoor patio or balcony. As you walk into the Hawthorne apartment home, you see the expansive living and dining area that is naturally lit by five large windows with a commanding view of the outdoors. This space feels large and airy, thanks to the wall of windows and picturesque alcove—the perfect spot for sun-loving plants or a Christmas tree during the holidays. With such a large space, you have many options for furniture placement, like an L-shaped sectional and a large area rug to define the living area. Stately yet sensible The galley kitchen design makes food preparation stress-free when appliances, storage and a prep area are all within a few steps of each other. This kitchen opens to the breakfast area where sliding doors bring in daylight while the light from the cutout above the sink keeps the space lit and connected to the happenings in the living area. An ideal space to start your day is the breakfast nook, where you can put your dining set and perhaps your favorite sideboard. Your private patio or balcony is outside of the breakfast area where you can entertain family and friends during the warm months, or listen to the summer concerts performed on the band stage. Fit for king, queen or both! Off the Hawthorne apartment home’s main living area is a second bedroom that can also function as a den, home office or craft room. Add a sofa sleeper and you’ll create a versatile space. Across the hall is a guest bathroom that contains a conveniently located stackable washer/dryer and a linen closet for extra storage. Your private domain is past the second bedroom. This large master bedroom includes a master bath, spacious walk-in closet and a bonus linen closet. Position a chaise lounge next to the large window to make the perfect spot for morning coffee, or a prime setup where the sun can rise over your headboard. New friends, endless opportunities and less worry As soon as you move your favorite furniture pieces and home accessories into the ample living space within the Hawthorne apartment home, you’ll immediately feel at home, but don’t forget about what awaits you outside. From socials and educational series to walking trails and a well-equipped fitness center, you’ll find countless opportunities to meet friends and experience new adventures. Plus, living at The Overlook means you won’t have to worry about home maintenance or access to quality healthcare. So why wait?
