Bartlett Hill


An award-winning 82 single family home community for active adults, overlooking the Connecticut River Valley with clubhouse, pool, and recreation area.

Our sloping hillside site provides panoramic views of the valley below. Our land plan is based on the simple idea that streets and homes should conform to the natural shape of the land. The result is a community of gently curving streets with abundant cul-de-sacs that discourage thru traffic. The curving streets further provide an ever changing and visually satisfying series of streetscapes.
