Golf course views are among the amenities drawing buyers to the Gatherings at Lyndwood, an active adult community in Elkridge, Md., being developed by Beazer Homes USA Inc.

The gated, age-restricted community has been sited on a high piece of land in Howard County, nearly surrounded by the Timbers at Troy public golf course, which provides the green views and a haven for golfers.

Residents will enjoy a private clubhouse with a fitness room, a lounge, arts and crafts rooms and a warming kitchen for easy entertaining. In addition, the development will include a heated outdoor swimming pool and a tennis court.

Neighborhood shopping and easy access to Interstate 95 add to the convenience of living at Lyndwood, where residents can commute to Washington or Baltimore as well as take advantage of the cultural and entertainment amenities in both cities.

The homes are in eight four-story elevator buildings with stone and brick facades, an intercom system and automatic locking doors in the lobbies and garages. Base prices for the 216 homes range from $294,990 to $394,990, with monthly condominium fees of $407 per home.
