One of the most exciting parts of moving to a vibrant Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) like The Overlook is selecting the residence that’s perfect for you and your next adventure. This hilltop community offers dozens of desirable floor plans that can fit just about any budget and lifestyle.

What makes choosing The Overlook even better is that once you pick which exact home you want, you have the opportunity to make it totally your own with a variety of customization options. The exact options will vary in each specific case, so here is a general rundown of what happens to your new home before you move in, along with where you can typically add personal touches.

Carpet, cabinets and a fresh, personalized start from bottom to top

When we prepare one of our quintessential Charlton, Massachusetts, cottages or apartment homes for a new neighbor, our team of expert contractors takes thoughtful and extensive steps to give it a brand-new feeling.

For example, in the hallways and living room of every remodeled residence, our team removes old carpet and replaces it with modern luxury vinyl tile. Every bedroom receives new carpet standard; however, you can also opt to have your entire new home outfitted with luxury vinyl tile for an additional cost.

Another part of the home-refreshing process that comes standard is removing and replacing all of the old cabinets in both the kitchen and bathroom(s). Plus, your entire new home will receive a fresh coat of paint standard, too. For a super-personalized look and feel, you also have the option of paying to upgrade to the exact color you want for the paint on the walls throughout.

Customizable, contemporary kitchens and baths

Aside from floor coverings and paint, your new home will also receive brand-new, stainless-steel appliances to outfit the complete kitchen. If you’d like a top-of-the-line refrigerator or dishwasher, you have the option to pay for premium appliance upgrades where you like.

No matter your choice of appliances, you’ll still get to enjoy a kitchen that would rival one you’d find in a contemporary condo in Boston. This is bolstered by the fact that The Overlook also adds granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom(s) of every home upon refinishing. Depending on the timing of the remodel, many new residents can also choose the color of their countertops or upgrade to a different surface.

When it comes to the bathroom in your new home, our team refreshes more than just the flooring, cabinets and paint. Your master bathroom also gets a convenient and stylish shower door to make every daily routine feel hotel-like.

From lights to doors to fixtures, we go beyond the basics

Just as with your nearly limitless options for daily adventures at The Overlook, your options for what you want your new home to be are pretty wide open, too. Lately, more and more new members of The Overlook community have opted for more involved upgrades to their new homes such as:

  • Cutting new doors to lead outside
  • Opening interior walls for a brighter, airier feel
  • Adding patios outside where possible
  • Updating light fixtures throughout

Our experienced team of move-in coordinators will work with you, your preferences and your budget to make sure that when you take the key to your new home, it’s exactly what you want.

Here, you’re not moving into a dated, cookie-cutter apartment. Rather, your new home receives an HGTV-like overhaul with plenty of places to add your personal flair along the way. We think it’s the perfect way to give you a warm welcome to The Overlook!

Once you’ve settled into your new space, you will be free to enjoy everything about community life here in the New England countryside. Meet your neighbors, join (or start) a club, check out the amenities—and do it all with peace of mind for tomorrow.
