The foundation was finished and the bulkhead was finally in. Jon and Libby were excited to stop by the Eagle Brook Village in Wrentham, where their new home was being built. With family down the street, and great jobs in Norwood and Norfolk, it made sense for them to settle down here.
On this day, Jon chose to drive the truck that had belonged to Libby's late father. She and her dad had been very close, so Jon knew how special it was for her to ride in that truck. Once they pulled up to their lot and admired the progress, Jon asked Libby to become his wife.
Eagle Brook Village is a new development of "high quality homes at an affordable price." The high ceilings and the open space layout were cleverly planned. Libby and Jon are very happy with their final choices and had positive experiences with each contractor.
I was particularly excited to see this house, because Libby's mother and uncle are neighbors who grew up in my home. It's always fun to talk with them about the childhood memories that they made where my children are currently growing up.
Often times, I find myself entering houses that appear bigger from the outside than from inside. This time, however, I was surprised by how spacious Libby and Jon's house was. It has three large bedrooms and two full bathrooms on the upper level.
Jon is a collector of antiques, and their home is full of his finds. One of my favorites is a salvaged antique clothes washer that had belonged to Libby's great-grandmother. Since Jon and Libby love to entertain their friends and family on their deck, Jon had the great idea of using the washer as a cooler. Not only is it large enough to hold plenty of ice and drinks, the leftover water easily goes out the washer's drain. It's simply genius.
Jon and Libby are now married and couldn't be happier with their new home. Since they are both very active, they enjoy going out for runs around Wrentham or to the Adirondack Club, which is a fitness, tennis, and aquatic center five minutes away. The Eagle Brook village is also walking distance from Lake Pearl's Sweatt Beach and Jame's Breakfast restaurant (some of my personal favorites in town).
If you are currently looking for new construction in a family neighborhood and at a reasonable price, definitely take a look at the Eagle Brook Village. It's a hidden Wrentham gem.
