At Summersgate, the Eastern Shore’s newest active adult community, residents age 55 and older can enjoy recreational amenities on a 44-acre campus that is near beaches and shopping areas.

Located in Salisbury, Summersgate will eventually have condominiums, duplex-style villas and single-family homes. The first phase of the development will include 94 villas, each with a two-car garage, and 100 condominiums with optional garages. The condominiums are base-priced from $205,000 to $225,000. Single-family homes are base-priced from $366,000 to $389,000.

Sidewalks and walking trails will wind throughout the community, and residents will also have the exclusive use of a 7,500-square-foot clubhouse with a library, a computer suite, a fitness center, a game room, a party and meeting room and a swimming pool. Homeowner association fees, which are estimated at $225 per month for the villas and single-family homes, include snow removal of driveways and sidewalks, landscaping and pest control. Condominium fees are estimated to range from $240 to $282 per month.

Built by Vantage Point Retirement Living Inc., the homes at Summersgate will include 9-foot ceilings, cathedral and tray ceilings and custom millwork and accent moldings. The homes have hardwood floors in the foyer and kitchen; ceramic tile floors in the baths, prewiring for Internet access and a luxury master bath with a soaking tub and separate glass shower.
