The Meadows enjoys
a beautiful 40-acre country campus, totally surrounded by conservation
lands. Residents sometimes see whole families of deer in the valley, or
at the edges of the parking areas. Wild turkeys and all manner of other
birds are frequently seen roaming the grounds. Join this prominent five-star community.
See below for other photos of the two
largest Meadows buildings, which will alone accommodate up to 260 residents.
Floor plans will tell readers a lot about the individual oversized suites
at The Meadows, but nothing ever beats a personal visit to get the real
feeling of just how very nice they all are. And only a personal visit
can begin to help one appreciate our wonderful caring staff and the many
neighbors who have already moved into one of the finest senior
communities anywhere in Greater Boston!

Street which opened July 1, 2002. A pleasant two-lane connector drive
runs between 420 and 370 Hemenway. There is also an indoor passageway
connecting 420 to the main building. This walkway includes a carpeted,
air conditioned 130-foot-long pedestrian bridge, shown below left.
The entire property of The Meadows retirement
community in Massachusetts and the adjacent New Horizons assisted living
community is fully developed. The overall capacity of this multifaceted continuing-care
retirement community is about 520 residents. Special priority is always
given to residents who are already in the community if their needs change
and either a care plan or greater care is ever needed.
The elegantly groomed landscaping and
grounds of both communities are interlaced with indoor and outdoor walking
paths. There is a comfortable hiking trail which originates beside The
Meadows at 420 Hemenway and transcends the woodlands directly to Marlborough
Country Club, less than a mile away. Many residents enjoy walking the
circular central hallway at 400 Hemenway, with five laps equaling just

"The Meadows" Seniors'
Community is a very distinct, but integral, part of the New Horizons
continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
Sharing a beautiful 40-acre campus, it is surrounded by a hundred
acres of conservation land and state forest. The Meadows offers
one of the most serene country settings anywhere, with convenient
access to Boston and Worcester. It is located just off US Route
20, very near Longfellow's historic Wayside Inn in Sudbury, and
13 miles west of Boston's circumferential highway, Route 128/I-95.
The woodlands and meadows which
virtually surround the entire campus abound in wildlife. Foxes,
wild turkeys and sometimes whole families of deer at one time have
all been spotted routinely, right at the edges of the parking areas.
Gracious homes as spacious as these
are not often found, even in the suburbs. In addition to the exceptional
design features, there are many practical features in The Meadows,
including fully applianced kitchens, tile baths, full air conditioning,
and in-unit washer/dryers. A variety of personal preferences and
lifestyles is accommodated by many different floor plans.
Designed to promote choices and
independence, The Meadows has not cut back on the amenities. On-site
banking, a hair salon, full-service fitness club, regular on-site
religious services for several faiths, common lounges and dining
salons, and much more are all part of the picture. Cable television
and local phone service are included.

built homes, not just some cookie-cutter complex with no individual
The dramatic lobby entrances with
their, cozy fireplace, and two-story atrium
extends a warm welcome to all who come to The Meadows. Additional
common area amenities include courtesy professional office in each
building, plus large function areas, mail rooms, libraries, and
elegant dining rooms. Both 370 and 420 have large water features
in their main lobbies, including a 15 foot high waterfall in 420.
Outdoors, the campus has been carefully
designed and professionally landscaped with extensive plantings,
trees, and sitting areas. This delightful setting for The Meadows
compliments the continuous surrounding Marlborough green belt between
The Meadows and Marlborough Country Club to the southeast. In addition,
there are numerous on-campus recreational areas including a very
large indoor swimming pool, fitness center, and walking trails,
as well as abundant free parking for residents and their guests.
The Meadows' developer, Cummings
Properties, LLC of Woburn, is no stranger to the concept of "building
what people want." During the past 45 years, the debt-free family-owned
firm has grown to own and operate 10 million square feet
of office and residential real estate in 10 communities north of
Boston. Most of the buildings
operated by Cummings Properties have been donated to Cummings Foundation.
In 1990, the company
purchased the former Choate Memorial Hospital in Woburn, and created
not-for-profit New Horizons at Choate. The upscale 125-resident
retirement community has been lauded by state officials as a model
for assisted living. The firm also built and managed Place Lane
Condominium, a 149-unit luxury condo building in Woburn.
