COUNTRY POINTE: NEW ADULT LIFESTYLE
Resort-style amenities are core to the Country Pointe Meadows experience
BY RUTH BASHINSKY
Mike and Joanne McEnroy are
getting ready for their move from
Country Pointe Nesconset to Country
Pointe Meadows in Yaphank.
Unlike others who spend months
house hunting, the McEnroys’ search
was simple. They went with the same
builder of their previous home, the
Beechwood Organization, one of the
largest homebuilders and developers
of lifestyle communities and privately
owned residences on Long Island.
“It’s a quality home,” says McEnroy,
who was excited and wanted in
when he learned that the 400-home
condominium lifestyle community
for adults aged 55-plus was available.
“We were looking for a more active
community for 50- and 60-plus, and
we liked the resort-style atmosphere.”
Their new home is identical in
size to the one they had previously.
A corner unit, it has two bedrooms,
second-floor den and loft area, living
room with fireplace, dining room,
kitchen, two-car garage, and landscaping
with a pond and waterfall.
Part of the development is the community
offering plenty to do. It has
a state-of-the-art 11,000-square-foot
clubhouse to enjoy and other amenities
that feature a ballroom, card
room, sports lounge with bar, fitness
room, treatment room, concierge
and activities director, two outdoor
heated swimming pools, and tennis
and bocce ball courts.
Steven Dubb, a principal with the
Beechwood Organization, says buyers
are coming from Nassau, Suffolk,
Brooklyn, and Queens, and that the
development is on the pulse of what a
homebuyer is looking for today.
“They want more volume in their
home,” he says. “They want to be able
to entertain in the kitchen and be able
to talk to their guests in the living
room at the same time. Our homes
have open floor plans that flow easily.
It allows the empty nester to have
friends and family over and make the
first level of the home a communal
Country Pointe Meadows is the
homeownership dimension of The
Boulevard, a 322-acre smart growth
development on the grounds of the
former Parr Meadows racetrack,
that will include retail stores, a park
and dog park, a hotel, luxury rental
apartments, and an assisted living
The Boulevard concept appealed
to the McEnroys, who spend part
of the winter months in Florida and
enjoy easy access to the shops and
“We have that down in Florida, so
we really like that,” he says.
According to Dubb, buyers can
choose from 1,470 to more than
2,100 square feet of living space
The outdoor living space is a key component at Country Pointe Meadows in Yaphank.
