Flanders Woods Condominiums, in beautiful Coventry, Connecticut, is not your traditional condominium site.
The homes that make up Flanders Woods are freestanding, on large parcels or “Unit Boundary Areas” which is the technical term. When completed there will be 16 homes in total; as of September 2021 13 homes are completed. Flanders Woods is a non-age restricted community on 18.6 pristine acres with the look and feel of an upscale neighborhood thanks to its architectural variety, landscaping, and carefully maintained grounds. It is a development that allows you to downsize without downgrading. This condominium community leaves the crowded, cookie-cutter sameness and lack of privacy behind, thanks to the work of developer, designer, and builder Mark Lavitt.
A lot of thought and effort has gone into creating the Flanders Woods Condominium community.
Mark Lavitt has owned the property for more than 40 years. During that time, Mark’s intentions were always to be a good steward of the land. Unfortunately, Mark passed away unexpectedly in early 2021. Mark’s son, Uri Lavitt, is carrying on for his dad, completing the Flanders Woods Condominium project. Uri has worked with his dad in the building industry for more than 30 years. He is following through with the completion of the last three homes bringing forth his father’s desire to build each home with the opportunity to be in harmony with the landscape. The 5 different model homes that are offered at Flanders Woods have been designed purposefully with this harmony in mind.
Exactly what does harmony between the landscape and architecture mean?
Landscape architecture recognizes and understands the trees and plant life around us and their relationship to land forms and how they are impacted by the forces of nature. Architecture deals pretty much with the design and details of the home, itself. Our goal at Flanders Woods has been to take a site that is pristine and nearly ideal in its undeveloped state and blend the landscape and architecture of the home itself very sensitively. Our objective is to bring the cheery, warm, low angle sunlight into the home to lower your heating demands during the winter months and prevent the extreme heat from ever getting into your home in the summer time.
Being a non-traditional condominium doesn’t mean you leave the advantages of condominium living behind.
On the contrary, the advantages of condominium living have been retained. While the look is of an upscale subdivision, there will be no need to mow, trim, weed or fertilize. Come winter, there will be no shoveling and plowing. This is all handled by the Homeowners Association low monthly fee (HOA). All homes have their own individual well and septic. The HOA fee also maintains all the common areas. With the traditional condo, you own from the walls in. At Flanders Woods, you own the whole house. This means much lower condo fees. It is maintenance-free living at its best!
One of the very unique features of Flanders Woods is the unit owner actually is deeded property at the closing. The Unit Boundary Areas (the property you will own that the home sits on) range from .29 acres to .47 acres. What does that mean to you, the buyer? Fewer rules, more independence within your “property” boundary, install a patio, a fire pit or an irrigation system.
The 5 models range from 1370 to 1782 square feet. Three of the models have a bonus room option over the garage. All come with a 2-car garage with garage door openers, 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, granite countertops, tiled bathrooms, nine-foot ceilings with vaulted ceiling in the great room, oak floors and much more.
