Dorset Park with Morr Interiors(Concord, MA), (October 12, 2017) – Northland Residential, a real estate development firm based in Concord, Massachusetts announced today that Dorset Park, a neighborhood of 26 single family homes located in the master-planned community of Union Point in Weymouth, Massachusetts, was named a winner in the 2017 Professional Builder Design Awards contest, which recognizes the nation’s top home building projects for design excellence, sales and marketing success, and construction quality. Northland Residential won a Gold award in the Single-Family Production – 2,000 square feet or below category.

The annual Design Awards honor projects across 10 categories: single-family production homes (in three square-footage sub-categories), multifamily homes, one-of-a-kind custom homes, “on the boards” projects, new community homes, systems built/modular homes, green homes, and urban infill.

The design team for Dorset Park included Don Powers and Jeremy Lake of Union Studio, Providence, RI; Tom Ryan and Alan Aukeman of Ryan Associates, Waltham, MA; Stephanie Morrison of Morr Interiors, Newmarket, NH; and photographer Shelly Harrison of Shelly Harrison Photography, Chestnut Hill, MA.

“We are thrilled to receive the Gold award in recognition for our diligent work with our partners in the development of Dorset Park,” said Peter Crabtree, Project Executive and Vice President of Northland Residential Corporation. “You immediately get the sense that Dorset Park is a special place when you walk the neighborhood. The conservation land to the rear of our parcel is unique to Dorset Park and provided the perfect opportunity to capture tranquil private space for our homeowners. We’ve also incorporated design elements to create an overall sense of community such as inviting sidewalks, a neighborhood park and classic front porches. With the recent sell-out of the neighborhood earlier this month, we couldn’t be more pleased that the market embraced our new community with the same level of enthusiasm.”

Dorset Park is located on the corner of Memorial Grove and Snowbird Avenue in Union Point. To design the neighborhood and floor plans of the homes, Northland commissioned Union Studio of Providence, a firm nationally recognized for their work in mixed use developments. The neighborhood plan features a distinctive streetscape that ends in a cul-de-sac, inviting private backyards and a small park that connects the homes to the larger Union Point community.
