Beckley Farms in Berlin, CT on an August evening. The breeze is as much a part of the ambiance as the rolling hills and view of Lamentation Mountain in the distance.  The rolling topography creates small neighborhoods that lend this 55+ community so much charm.

Quality construction is apparent in each customized home in the community. The standard features here would be upgrades at many other new home developments. Such outstanding features as granite countertops in the kitchen, a gas fireplace with a marble surround in the living room and a generous first-floor master bedroom suite are all standard.

Other standard features include crown molding, vaulted ornine-foot ceilings and a two-car attached garage. Each home has a deck or patio made with Trex,or a similar product, for virtually indestructible decking. Master bedrooms have a walk-in closet and a full bath with a shower, tub and cultured marble-topped double sink. Flooring consists of ceramic tiling in the bathrooms and laundry room, lush carpeting in the bedrooms and oak hardwood in the rest of the home.

Kitchen cabinets are raised panel oak or flat panel birch with 36-inch upper cabinets. General Electric appliances include a refrigerator, oven and range, microwave oven and dishwasher. Each kitchen has an eat-in area. Upgrades can include stainless appliances and a huge variety of cabinetry.
