From cottages to apartment homes, The Overlook, located in Charlton, Massachusetts, offers numerous residential options for busy seniors who want independence and freedom. Looking to simplify your daily routine? Planning to lead a pack-and-go lifestyle? The Cherry residence is the perfect fit for you.
At just under 1,000 square feet, the unique floorplan makes efficient use of space while still maintaining an airy, open feel. This “right-sized” residence features an open living and dining area, a private den, an expansive master bedroom, a galley kitchen and more. And best yet, the Cherry is conveniently located just a short walk from the community’s many amenities like Tucker’s Café, the indoor pool, the fitness center and the performing arts center.
Walk into comfort and imagine the possibilities
As you enter, you’re immediately inspired by the view of the outdoors that the Cherry home provides, brought in by the residence’s ample windows. An alcove of windows connects to a patio door, so your living space takes full advantage of the view and the warmth the windows bring in year-round.
The generously sized living and dining room space lends itself to entertaining. Picture your family and friends watching Sunday’s game on a large sectional or inviting friends over for a night of cards, appetizers and socializing.
And speaking of entertaining, a pass-through window connects the galley kitchen to the living and dining space so you don’t miss a single conversation or play on the field. So, whether it’s chili or apple cobbler, the streamlined kitchen, with appliances just steps away, makes food preparation a breeze.
Time to wind down
One of the unique features of the Cherry is its roomy master bedroom. Located away from the living area, the master bedroom features an angled wall that gives the room depth and offers plenty of space for a king-size bed, nightstands and dresser. Imagine sitting in your stylish settee or an oversized club chair with a morning cup of coffee watching the leaves fall or the snowflakes swirl.
Adjoining the master bedroom is a three-piece master bath, linen closet and super-sized, walk-in closet. This purposeful space not only keeps your clothing and shoes organized; it’s also large enough to store tennis rackets, craft bins and a few other ad hoc items. Add a half bath and two additional closets to the hallway and the Cherry residence at The Overlook has checked off every item on your must-have list.
The ever-resourceful den
Another great feature of the residence is its den. Guests coming for the weekend? No problem! Place a daybed with a trundle in the large den and you have ample room for guests. This space can also double as an office, craft room or media room. With a small bump out wall and a large window, the airy space adjusts to your versatile way of life.
Grab your slippers—or your suitcase
Thanks to living in a retirement community that includes a monthly service package, gone are the days of clearing gutters, bagging leaves or cleaning extra rooms you no longer need. Independent living at The Overlook means someone else is responsible for home maintenance so you have time to travel, visit the kids or head out of town for a weekend game or New England excursion. And when you do arrive home, you can kick back and get comfy in your stylish apartment home without worrying about the chores you would have to catch up on right after you return.
Regardless of the floor plan you choose, The Overlook offers you carefree independent living with an array of amenities and programs that satisfy every desire and aspiration.
